SOURCE: Firing order

These things operate on what is known as a wasted spark system. There are two coils each one has two spark plug leads coming from it. One of the coils fires cylinders number 2 and 3 the other one fires cylinders number 1 and 4 . Each coil fires both leads at the same time. Hence one of the sparks is wasted each time. If you could see the pistons going up and down in the bores you would notice that numbers 1 and 4 go up and down together and that numbers 2 and 3 go up and down together. When 1 and 4 are at the top. 2 and 3 are at the bottom. and vicea versa . If number 1 is on the firing stroke number 4 will be on the exhaust stroke. Also the same for number 3 (firing) number 4 (exhaust) Thats not exactly what you asked i know. But i think it will help you to understand how the plugs fire on most Japanese across the frame 4 cylinder motors.

    FIRING ORDERS

    Print
    See Figures 1 and 2
    To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement.
    If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes to reflect how your engine is wired.

    No spark to engine 1991 ford pickup


    It can be faulty or dirty spark plug itselfd.Also for reference get the fuel level checked.Is the fuel tank is empty or near to empty.
    Try cleaning the spark plugs and then see if that is helpin.On some cases the black carbon layer gets collected on the spark plugs and that causes the problem,so cleaning the plugs help.But if its not helping,then spark plug has to be replaced.Spark plugs get power from ignition coil to ignite sparks.If ignitioncoils are faulty then also there will no spark.--------------

    Spark plugs and wires


    It sounds like the spark plug wires are not plugged into the correct place on the distrubutor. take the distributor cap off and crank the engine over. Make a note of which direction the rotor spins. (Clockwise, or Counterclockwise) then find the firing order for that engine. Sometimes the firing order is on the intake manifold. (if you tell me which engine it has, the 4 cylinder 2.0, or the 6 cylinder 2.5; I could post you the firing order). Now on the distributor cap there is one wire post that has the #1 on it, that would be where you put the spark plug wire from cylinder 1. Following the rotation of the distributor rotor, you would put the spark plug wire for the next cylinder in the firing order after the #1 wire, and so on.

    I took of*** my spark plug wires working on my small block 350 pickup and I don't remember the the firing order to put the new wires back on. Is there a diagram anywhere or is it even that difficult to...


    Next time number each lead before you remove it and no. the dissy cap as well

    The firing order, which should be cast into the intake manifold, for the chevy small block V8 is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. The firing order is the numerical sequence in which the spark plugs are fired. The insertion position of each spark plug wire around the circumference of the distributor cap can be found according to a clock face. The insertion sequence determines the firing order. The firing order is followed clockwise around the distributor cap starting from the 6:30 position with the 6:30 position being the number one cylinder spark plug wire.
    On classic chevy small block engines that use ignition breaker points instead of electronic ignitions, the number one cylinder is the one immediately clockwise of the small metal sash cover on the distributor cap. The firing order starts here. There is no sash cover on the distributor cap for GM HEI electronic ignitions, and the firing order is the same, but starting at the 5:30 position.
    The firing order makes sense if you know how the cylinders are numbered. The number one cylinder is the front most on the drivers side and 2 being the front most on the passenger side. From front to back, the cylinders are odd numbered on the drivers side, and even numbered on the passenger side.
    See the diagram; Click to open a printable larger image in a new window. The firing order starts with the number one cylinder. We would connect the number one spark plug wire to the distributor cap terminal in the 6:30 position. distributor.pngSince the next cylinder in the firing order is 8 (passenger side rear), we connect the number 8 spark plug wire to the next distributor cap terminal (approximately 7:30 position) in the clockwise direction from number one. You need to be sure you continue the firing order in the clockwise direction around the chevy small block distributor cap from the last installed spark plug wire. Setting the rest of the firing order is just a matter of repetition. Be sure to count the spark plugs from front to back on each side of the motor to identify the correct cylinder number in the firing order.

    Firing Order diagram for 2006 Ford Explorer


    Hope this helps. The ignition coil:
    • changes low-voltage pulses from the PCM to high-voltage pulses.
    • fires 2 spark plugs simultaneously.
    • has 3 transformers.
      • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 1 and 5
      • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 2 and 6
      • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 3 and 4
    Spark plug wires:
    • carry high-voltage pulses from the ignition coil to the spark plugs.
    The spark plugs:
    • change high-voltage pulses to spark at the gap, which ignites the fuel and air mixture.
    The firing order is 1-4-2-5-3-6.
