The distributor turns anticlockwise. The firing order is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8 with, numbering from the front, 1-2-3-4 on the left side and 5-6-7-8 on the right. Remove sparkplug #1 and loosely fit a cork in its place. Hand rotate the engne to TDC mark on the lower pulley. When the cork 'pops' #1 cylinder is ready to fire. Look inside the distributor cap, thr rotor is pointing toward where plug lead 1 fits. Follow the firing order counter clockwise from there. The lesson is change the leads one-at-a-time in future!

My 93 camry has no power from the distributor to the spark plugs. The car unable to start.

The spark travels from the coil to the distributor then from the distributor to the plugs. So if you have spark going into the distributor but not coming out to the plugs, I would blame the distributor cap and rotor being at fault.

Have you checked all of the High Tension leads from the distributor to the plugs, or just one or two? Same with HT lead from Coil to Distributor, Check Distributor cap for cracks

where can you find a diagram to correct the wires from the distributor to the spark plugs on 95 ford e250?

User Avatar

no the plugs just delivers the spark. you only need to do timing if u pull the distributor out of the block or do a timingChan or if the distributor slips

coil, distributor, distributor cap, plugs, or wires.

No, the Distributor delivers high-voltage electricity to the Spark Plugs.

The user manual that came with your vehicle will point you in the right direction. Once you have located your distributor cap you can trace the plugs (either 4,6 or 8) to the side of the engine where a lead goes from each to the dizzy. You then use a spark plug spanner to remove and reinstall your new plugs.

distributes the spark from the coil to the spark plugs

The distributor cap is located on the top of the distributor on a 1996 Sunfire. It is connected to the spark plugs via a wire.

The distributor cap is located where the spark plugs cables are connected .They go from the motor to the distributor cap.

It could be either the crank angle sensor or the distributor module. If it is the distributor module, you have to buy and install a re-man distributor.

ignition module is located under the distributor, where the spark plugs come out to go to the spark plugs, remove 6 bolts that hold the 3 capped distributor on, unplug the wires from both ends of module, 3 plugs, lift module out, nothing holds it in after distributor is removed, plug new module in, replace distributor.

There is no distributor cap as there is no distributor. There are 3 coil packs, each coil fires 2 spark plugs simultaneously.

User Avatar

inside the distributor cap. there should be 2 sets of plugs that go to your distributor, those plugs go directly into ur ignitions module

User Avatar

It fires the plugs in the cylinders to ignite the mixture.

User Avatar

Use the same spark plugs as you would with a distributor, but reset the gap to .020".

User Avatar

Some Volkswagen models actually came with a diesel engine. Others have spark plugs located under the distributor cap. Once the distributor cap is removed replace the spark plugs one by one as to not get them crossed.

User Avatar

A typical distributor will have constant power. As the rotor is turned, the power is sent to the spark plugs.

User Avatar

IT DOESN'T HAVE A DISTRIBUTOR. THE IGNITION COIL AND PLUGS ARE UNDER A COVER ON THE TOP OF THE ENGINE.

User Avatar

check all plugs plug leads distributor points and distributor cap for cracks and wear

User Avatar

The function of a distributor in a car is to move voltage from the ignition coil to the spark plugs. They have been around since 1910.
