After changing plugs, wires, distributer cap and rotor my 1994 4runner will not run. it starts back fires and dies right away. I have checked the firing order and it appears correct.

Firing order might be correct but it must start and finish at the right cylinders. Check this by turning the crankshaft until the timing marks are aligned and the timing cylinder is at the top of the compression stroke. The firing order begins from the distributor cap segment the rotor arm is pointing to. Don't forget to observe the direction of distributor rotation.

If moving spark plug wires over one, do I need to reset distributor top dead center?

doing what you are doing is not the smartest move
instead go google and type in --firing order for (make and model) engine
follow the firing order and rotation direction after you set no 1 piston on tdc compression stroke
Why what you are doing is not smart. when you get into trouble you will have no idea of where you are and neither will anyone else
set it right the first time

Mazda 323 firing order, is it clockwise on distributor cap

on the four stroke right hand ( clockwise ) turning engine the firing order is 1-3-4-2 but there are some exceptions on European model. The firing order is also clockwise set because your engine is right hand turn. For you if you like to see also what I stated you can remove the distributor cap if you know how,and by starting the engine you will see the rotor arm turning clockwise.

Coil pack connection is physical: Coil 1 to Cylinder 1, 2->2, etc.

I am not sure if this is your question, but firing order matches spark to TDC (top dead center) on the power stroke. The design of the crankshaft determines this.

1-3-4-2 is common for most straight 4's. Cylinder 1 is closest to the crank pulley. I believe your coils are 'waste spark' which means it will fire two cylinders at the same time. When the coil fires, one cylinder is on the power stroke and is wanting this spark. The other cylinder is on the exhaust stroke at this time, and thus the spark is 'wasted' on that cylinder. But a cylinder with exhaust gas has high impedance, so most of the energy is delivered to the intended cylinder.

If your question was 'should I just connect 1->1, 2->2, 3->3, 4->4' [ yes!] vs. ' should I try to connect coils following the firing order' [no] then the answer is the first. The trigger wheel determines which coilpack fires when, you just need to hook up the wires number for number.

Took distributer out and changed dist rotor and dist cap. Put ne spark plugs and wires. Now wont start and backfires while trying to start.

You have the Engine Out Of Time you will have to bring number 1 cylinder to Top dead center do this by turning the Crank bolt Clockwise Have the valve cover off so you can watch the Intake and Exhaust Valve`s open and close as number one piston comes up on a firing stroke make sure you have the number one cylinder coming up on a firing stroke. Watch Intake valve open and close as you turn the Crank.when pisten gets dead top of this STROKE DROP THE DISTRIBUTER; Start the Firing Order right where the Rotery Button is inside the Distributer cap

2001 ford taurus, 3.0 vulcan motor. just rebuilt the whole motor, backfires out of the intake, seems to be out of firing order. i triple checked my work and can't find the problem. whistling sound of...

Back firing out of the intake is because the valves/cams are not set right. When you did the timing belt . did you set the crankshaft mark at top dead center of the compression stroke. If it's at the exhaust stroke this would cause backfiring and violent shaking.

Timing will not set when i set tdc

Timing could be 180 deg out meaning your trying to fire on the exhaust stroke instead of the ignition stroke? cheack that your cam timing is right if you have had the timing belt off ? reset to top dead center then make sure you are on the right stroke

Caprice 5.0 won't start but turns almost over

you need three things, fuel, air, and spark. the fuel and air should be ok. Let's check the timing. Oh. are you sutre the firing order is right with the wires? Ok, they are,right? Now set the timing marks on front of engine to match up at 4 degrees after you bring #1 piston to top dead center.on compression can tell when its on compression stroke by removing spark plug and bumping the starter untill the piece of tissue you put in the plug hole blows out.then once the timing marks are lined up,check what wire the rotor is pointing at. If its close to #1, turn distributor slowly either way untill you hear a spark jump or pop. Lay #1 plug wireon the engine with the spark plug stuck in it. When the spark pops, the plug will fire at the timing mark setting. put plug back in, minus the tissue, put the wire back on and sng doe your distributor. the firing order is casted on the intakke manifold. Like 18436572. Going around top of dis cap start at the wire you know is #1.and in the direction the distributor turns make sure wires are in that order on your manifold.don't forget to secure the distributor cap..I this distributor has points the dwell/gap will have to be set while running with an allen wrench and dwell meter.at32 degrees. No points,no ptoblem. no setting. button it all up and look around for loose anythings, especially tools on top of radiator and light it it up. Final timing should be set with a timimg light. Any problems , I'll be on the puter bot noon o clock my time. Good Luck.
