Unfortunately, it varies, but if your proper order is in fact 1-3-4-2, the #1 wire goes to the front left position (~ 1030 clock position viewing the engine from the top looking forward) on the distributor, and thence clockwise from there. Might want to check this out...

NEED FIRING ORDER FOR 1997 LEXIUS 450


There should be an EPA sticker somewhere in the engine compartment, which will show vacuum line routing, firing order, and spark plug gap. If that sticker is missing, you may need to contact a Lexus dealership, give them your VIN number, and have them provide the information for you.

Daewoo tacuma Just changed my spark plugs and HT leads now enging runs rough and stalls on idle


CHECK YOU FIRING ORDER, YOU MIXED THE IGNITION WIRES, IF IT IS A 4 CYL, FIRST CYLINDER #1 IS NEAR THE BELTS, CHECK COIL WIRES FOR NUMBERS, OR DISTRIBUTOR CAP FOR CYLINDER NUMBER OR COIL PACK FOR CYL #, AND FOLLOW THE WIRES TO THE SPARK PLUGS. MAKE SURE THEY ARE RIGHT, NEXT TIME DO ONE PLUG AND ONE WIRE AT THE TIME.

Need a diagram for the firing order for a 1998 Dodge durango 5.2 engine. I think I mixed the wires up. Help!


Firing Orders NOTE: 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 and installed improperly and then rewired. The new wiring arrangement would maintain 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 of the current plug wire locations and orientation of the distributor cap.

I have a 1997 Toyota Camry 4-Cyl. I need the plug wire firing order on the engine and the cap. I think I may have crossed my new plug wires.


Here you go free of charge curtorsey About.com I do not have a photo of the distributor cap. Just turn the engine over until the #1 piston is at TDC on the compression stroke and the rotor will be pointing at the #1 piston. Connect that to the #1 plug and then connect the next on to the # 3 plug going counterclockwise, then 4 and finally 2. 53f57a7.png

Changed plugs and plug wires and now it wont start? i checked for spark off the distributer all 6 were good?


if your engine run before you changed anything,and you are talking about a 3.0 engine,
you have to be careful changing wires on this engine,
you need toonly change one wire at a time,the distributor cap on this engine is just stupid.
if you look under the cap you'll see that a wire on the one side of the cap actually has a contact that leads to the other side of the cap.
cly 5 cyl 6
cyl 3 cyl 4
cyl 1 cyl 2
front of engine

if your looking at distributor cap from front of engine,
two screws hold down cap.
look at the screw closest to the front,from that screw second hole to the left is #1.
firing order is 123456
#2 wire will be at that front screw on cap,keep installing wires counter clockwise.

To avoid confusion, tag and remove 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.
