Hey there janandshane,

I've got a 91 Wrangler, lots of fun. Here's your info.

Viewed from above, front of vehicle on the right side, cylinder locations are:
6 5 4 3 2 1 for a six cylinder and 4 3 2 1 for a four Cylinder

The firing order is:
1 5 3 6 2 4 for the six and 1 3 4 2 for the four.

The distributor rotation is clockwise.

To find Top dead center (for wire to cylinder #1 on distributor), look for and line up the timing marks on the crankshaft (front of the engine).

Or, pull the #1 spark plug, stuff the hole with a cork or a rag. Slowly crank the engine until the cork pops out.

Pull the distributor off. The rotor is pointing where the plug for cylinder #1 should go. The rest of the wires go in the firing order clockwise.

That about covers it.

Remember: Good things come to those who rate. How about a nice FixYa?

Mike

When i first start out when driving my 1994 chevy cavalier i step on the gas and it hesitates for a sec but then runs ok.this happens almost everytime i start out i had the fuel pump tested and it tested...


If it is the spark wires you get a misfire code, and probably the CEL.
Read codes, check vacuum system and sensors.

let me know if you need more help with the issue.

No spark to spark plugs 1600cc , wires are fine , fuel pump ok , spark plugs wet, could it be distibuter cap , or module , or distrbutor itself


It is possible that the distributor cap and/or rotor are faulty. They are not very expensive, easy to replace and will allow the engine to run more efficient. This is a way to visually test the coil to make sure it is good. Remove the coil wire at the distributor and place it against the engine block so the spark can find a good ground. Have someone turn over the engine for only a second or two and keep clear of the wire. You will be able to see how powerful the spark is or if it is bad. Please rate me on this answer.

How do I change the plugs and coil pack on a 1998 Malibu T- code 4 cylinder 2.4 engine


HI: 1st Thing is to Locate your Distributor Cap, Where you'll see 5 Spark Plug Wires inserted in the Cap.The Center Wire is your COIL WIRE Just Take you Finger and Follow that Center Wire. The other 4 Wires are Spark Plug Wires ,Do the Same Thing Follow 1 at a time to the Other End to Locate Your Spark Plugs.Here You'll not Actually See the Plugs until you pull the wire off. I recommend you do Only One at a Time to Make Sure you are not Mixing up Your Wires.So now just Twist with your Fingers or Better Yet By a Spark Plug Wire Removal Tool,This Way you Won't Damage that end of your Spark Plug Wire.NOTE: when wires Boots have been on a Vehicle they tend to Stick to the Spark Plugs.And I really Recommend You Change your Wires as Well.If you Do Still Follow the 1-Wire at a Time. NOW you'll Find your Coil Inside the Distributor Cap on The Inside of it, Turn the Cap Upwards Be CAREFULL nOT to PULL off any Wire Out of the Cap cause they most Likely will Get Mixed up.Anyway inside the Distrbutor Cap you'll se 4-Small Bolts Heads i Believe there 5/17th or 1/4 Inch Heads.Just Remove all 4 of those Small Bolts Saving The Bolts .And Your Coil Will Come Right On Out.Pay Close Attention and Mark Or Memorize how the Coil and its Little Wire and washer is Installed.Cause you'll need to Put it or the New Coil Back the same way it Came Out. Hope This Has Helped You out ,Please Reply by Voting on the Solution I have Given to you. Thanks From the WYOCWBOY

Check to see if the fuel pump is working. It makes a whirring noise when key is turned to start. If you cannot hear tht noise. it is probably a bad fuel pump. Next check if it has spark. remove a sprk plug and using heavy gloves or bundled rag, connect plug to wire and hold thread of spark plug to ground. If it has spark. It will "spark " a bluish spark. If not, then the problem lies in the coils.or distributer . Check that all the wires are good and that they are inserted into the ditributer cap snug . Check cap for cracks also check the rotor. If cap is humid, spray WD40 into it to dissipate any moisture. Check coils (if equipped without distrbutor) . Have car scanned for free at any auto parts store to get a trouble code.

No spark, just put in a new coil, distrbutor isnt dirty or wet, sombody told to check out the littl box's on the fender well, what are these to box's and what is there purpose? Mike 77 cj-5 304 3spd I...


I had the same problem with my 85 cj7 this week, I relpaced the ignition control module, plugs, wires, cap, rotor and the the coil; still had no fire to plugs. the problem turned out to be my distributor, replaced it today and she fired right up. Most likely it was the pick up module in the distributor that went bad.
