Question about Isuzu Cars & Trucks
Yep the spark plugs wires has 4 ring seals on them.

There are rubber seals on the valve cover that stop oil from getting into the tubes. These aren't called grommets though, though they may look similar. A grommet is to top protect wiring or other items from being damaged by sharp edges of meter as they are rooted through an opening.

Isuzu seem to have complicated things by changing engines, firing orders and even direction of rotation! As you can see, they've numbered the cylinders the other way than the 3.2L.
The Firing sequence for the 3.1 (traditional distributor) 6 cylinder is as follows -
If you take the distributor cap off, there should be a "No.1" formed on the inside. Stick a lead on this before you put the cap back on and go from there.
As leads are different lengths, you may have to swap a few to find the best fit.
I think 2 of them will look out of place - but that's the way it's designed. Just make use of clips for holding them neatly.
Thanks for using Fixya.

SOURCE: Isuzu Rodeo w/3.1L engine
Front Passenger side on cap is 1 - if you look on the inside of your cap there SHOULD be a pin marked with a 1, and the plugs go CLOCKWISE not counter. Just had the same problem myself with my 91 Rodeo. Cylinders are as follows Passenger side (front to back) 1 - 3 - 5, Driver side (front to back) 2 - 4 - 6. I called the Isuzu dealer and they told me it was counter clockwise, but when I hooked it up that way it backfired through the Carb.

In the center of each valvecover is a well with a wire in it each wire has a seal cap attached pull up and youll find a stem which goes down a tube this is part of the spark plug wire the plugs are at the bottom of this tube youll need a long adapter on your wrench and socket for this job and you can extract the plug using the wires stem
