Distributors and Distributor Caps

Distributors and distributor caps are components of an ignition system. Most internal combustion engines use these to deliver high voltage sparks into the engine in the correct firing order, which in turn creates combustion.
For the Ford , 4.9 liter / 300 cubic inch inline six cylinderengine : The firing order is ( 1 - 5 - 3 - 6 - 2 - 4 ) The distributor rotor turns CLOCKWISE ( when looking from the top ) The marked # 1 position on the distributor cap faces AWAY from theengine The engine cylinders are numbered 1 to...
get under hood and rev your motor manually.......till you hit around 2000 rpms than while keeping motor reved adjust the cap....now if you are too advanced on your cap youll hear a popping missing noise.....back off the cap counter clockwise till the engine runs smooth....if you retard the cap too...
It is HIGH ENERGY IGNITION. There isn't any points or condenser as they are replaced with an ignition module.

Answer . Looking from the balancer to the rear of the engine it is at the front of the dist on the right..
hope you have not looked too much for it! there isn't one. on my 2001 there is a coil on each individual spark plug to take the place of the distributor.
Answer . Follow the spark plug wires from the spark plugs. If it has a distributor cap, they will plug into it. It may not have one and have oil packs.
Answer . Hey Jerry==Since it is not new it is possible that it has been changed from factory. To find out where it is, if it is factory or not, pull #1 spark plug ,and the coil wire so it won't start, and stick your finger on the plug hole and have someone bump the starter to see when the piston...
That would be a neat trick. The piston will not fit into the distributor cap. Remove intake and left side head (bank 1) the #1 piston is closest to front.
whats the firing order for a 1885 Chevy 350 v8 I am not sure why someone answered the question with the above answer but the firing order on all Chevy V8 engines in the 80's was 18436572.
Disconnect the negativ battery cable whenever working with anything electrical on a car. Then take the cap off and see where the rotor is pointing. Then remove the dist and make sure the new rotor is pointing the EXACT way the old one was when the dist is fully installled in the oil pump. Then the...
Answer . \nOk bare with me here.....when you are in front of your car looking down at the motor you see 4 plugs...now the far right plug is number 1....so technically as you look down at your motor(left to right) it would 4 3 2 1. Now the distributor goes clockwise when it fires and it has 4...
Answer . \nIt's a distributor-less ignition system, so you're going to be looking for a long time in order to find it!
The firing order is 1, 5, 4, 2, 6, 3, 7, 8. On your cap starting in the front to the right of the clip going counter clockwise it's 7, 8, 1, 5, 4, 2, 6, 3.
Answer . This car has coil packs on it 1 coil for 2 cylinders, it goes 1 4 6 3 2 5, that is first coil is for cylinders 1 & 4 next coil for cylinders 6 & 3 next coil is for cylinders 2 & 5
Answer . \nIt is either out of time, or you have one or more plug wires hooked to the wrong plug. If you did not move the distributor then you have the wires wrong.
I have a 1999 cr-v. With the distributor cap off you must slightly give the key a turn in the ignition (not trying to start it) just to turn the rotor a little. When the teeth on the rotor face the front end of the car you should be able to see a phillip's head screw on the back side that screws...
my original response to your question is below.. but it may be a spark plug, which would cost a lot less than the coil/cap combo. but its a good idea to replace coil/cap/wires every 100k miles. Your Coil/Distributor Cap is going bad, replace it now before it dies and your car wont start. generally...
car start and drives fine bu when its turned off it wont start until it cools?
Answer . The control mod is In the distributor, Under the rotor cap.\nVery easy to see with the cap off. \nhope that helps.
1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 clockwise on the cap. Drivers side head front to rear are cylinders 1-3-5-7 The other head front to rear is 2-4-6-8
Answer . Every part of the computer control and injection system needs to be considered. For example, the fuel pump of an injected system runs at a much higher pressure than a carburated system. You'll need to work that out. You would need to work around the electronics for the ignition if you...
The firing order is ( 1 - 8 - 4 - 3 - 6 - 5 - 7 - 2 ) The distributor rotor turns CLOCKWISE The marked # 1 position on the distributor cap faces to the FRONT The engine cylinder / spark plug locations are numbered : firewall 8 - 7 6 - 5 4 - 3 2 - 1 front
Ok, there is a one bolt that holds in the disributor. it will be conected to a crows foot looking clamp. Take the bolt out and on Fords it more of a pain then just Chevy's. Chevy's just twist out while pulling. Fords are the same . but to put it back in you have to bump the motor until it falls in....
The cap should only be 2 screws. You depress, turn 1/4 then they pop off. The rotor is inside & should be a screw or something in the center attaching to shaft.Make sure you know which terminal is #1 & have firing order before you pull wires.
looking at the front of the motor 1 is right in front of you on the cap then u go to the left 1 2 7 5 6 7 4 8 on the right side of the motor as you look at it the plug wires are 1 3 5 7 to the left is 24 6 8 this is if you are standing in front of the car or truck
The # 1 position on the distributor cap for a Ford 460 cubic inch ( 7.5 liter ) faces to the REAR and slightly towards the drivers side
Very Carefully! Modern electronic ignition systems can operate at 100,000 volts so will bite you hard if you become part of the circuit. You can also damage or spike any electronic management system or control boxes on the car. To check the coil you will need some kind of meter or measuring...
on a lot of gm cars cylinders 1 & 4 fire off the same coil.
counterclockwise ( 1 - 5 - 4 - 2 - 6 - 3 - 7 - 8 ) The engine cylinder / spark plug locations are numbered : firewall 4 - 8 3 - 7 2 - 6 1 - 5 front
There should be 2 screws opposite each other on sides of cap. They latch it onto housing. Just push them down-(they have small springs) & turn 1/4, then they will pop up. Remember which side is the front & if you pull wires, mark #1 terminal & make sure you know firing order. If need be, you can...
Answer . \nit is under the intake on the back side of the motor next to the firewall to see it you will have to remove the coil and the vacuun line that goes to the brake booster then if you look down under the intake you can see it \ngood luck
The most obvious is hard start, runs rough when wet outside.

Answer . Yes, even Toyota screwed up on this one. There should be 3 8mm headed bolts holding the cap on. Look at the new one for the placement of them. One on top and two on the bottom I think. The coil is in the distributer, much like a Chevy HEI. Don't have to do anything but change the...
Start with removing the intake manifold. If it still not found you will have to drop the oil pan. If it made it's way to the bottom of the oil pan it would be harmless, but you will not know.
Firing order would be 1, 8, 4, 3, 6, 5, 7, 2. Driver side bank of cylinders from front to rear would be 1, 3, 5, 7. Passenger side bank of cylinders from front to rear would be 2, 4, 6, 8.

Answer . I know that the engine coolant temperature sensor and some of the useless emissions stuff goes to the computer but that is the only thing I can think of.
Locate the distributor and mark where timing is set at. Loosen the3 bolts holding the distributor in place. Disconnect any wiring.Pull off the o-ring and install the new one.
Left and right are determined by sitting in the car, facing forward. On a Chevy 350, number 1 is on the left or driver's side (in the USA) furthest forward cylinder. And you don't put the plug wire anywhere on the cap. You must bring number 1 cylinder up to top dead center on the compression stroke...
Answer . \nIf it is a 1999 Suburban with a 350 there are two screws. Remove all your wires first. Take a T15 Torx driver and take them out. The cap should be loose and you can use light pressure and pull straight up. Be sure not to move the distributor shaft relative to the engine. This is a net...
The 3.8 liter V6 engine has a distributor cap and rotor in a 1997 Ford Thunderbird
1995 and earlier, standing in front with the hood open, looking at the distributor, #1 would be at the 5:30 position. From there clockwise would be 1, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.

You must remove the distributor and rotate it back until the rotor is pointing at #1 when you set it back down in the block. It is trickey to do.
Answer . Sounds like the bearings or bushings in your distributor are worn. With the cap off, check for any wobble or play on the shaft. If so replace the distributor..
Rotors typically pull off the distributor shaft after you remove the distributor cap. On some (GM), the rotor is held on by a couple screws and the rotor is aligned by matching the round boss to the round hole and the square boss to the square hole. Asking how to remove the distributor leaves me...
Answer your fuel injection might be plugged up try putting fuil injection cleaner in gas tank ( run it in 2 tanks of gas )and check your spark plugs Answer if it won't start back up until it cools down, it's probably the crack sensor that sits in the back of the motor, it may be cracked and once...
Any '74-'80 Chevy HEI distributor will work. The biggest thing you have to do to add HEI is to run a larger positive lead to the coil. The small gauge wire running to your stock coil isn't large enough to carry the proper amount of voltage for the HEI coil.
Your timing is still off. Turn the distributor....just a very small amount....and try again. Try clockwise and counter clockwise until you get it to start and run. Then get a timing light on it and set the timing where it should be.
Remove intake manifold cover (three 10mm, tow cop nuts one bolt). Drivers side, remove throttle body (four Allen head screws), disconnect associated hoses and wiring connections. Remove coil bolt, disconnect coil wiring connector on 4,5,6 plugs. Remove plug with a magnetized spark plug socket and...
The timing for this type of distributor is set by rotating the entire distributor, not just the cap. The distributor should have a lock down bolt holding it down where it sets in a housing. With the engine NOT running, mark the original position of the distributor with a marker or some white paint....
The cap and rotor are considered wear items and should be replaced. No repair options are practical.
Number one is designated by where ever the spark plug wire from the number one cylinder is placed. Number one cylinder is the first cylinder on the the drivers side at the front of the car.

It could be a vacuum leak, try checking all of the vacuum hoses. Itcould also be a dirty and sticking EGR valve.
If your Ford F-150 is a 1996 model or older it has a distributor / distributor cap . 1997 and newer either have the EDIS ignition system ( Electronic Distributorless Ignition System ) or the C.O.P. ( Coil On Plug ) ignition system depending on the engine size and year
Right rear cylinder. The number 1,3 & 5 cylinders are on the right side of engine as seen from pilot seat. Number 2, 4 & 6 cylinders are on the left side with #2 being on the right rear opposite No. 1.
The rotor is not adjustable on 99.9% of distributors. The timing is adjusted by loosening the distributor body and turning it in relation to the rotor and other driven timing/ignition components.
