You dont say what engine you have but this is the most commmon. The cylinders are numbered 1-2-3-4 front to back on the pass. side and 5-6-7-8 on the drivers. Pull the #1 plug and bump the starter and when you feel the piston come up on compression, turn the engine slowly intil the timing mark is on top deae center. Pull the cap and where the rotor is pointing is where #1 wire goes. Then contimue with the wires. 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8 in a counterclockwise direction. #1 wire should be just to the right of center in the back when viewed from the front of the engine unless it has been changed.

Get a tune up. Replace cap and rotor, spark plugs, spark plug wires, and make sure the wires are in the correct firing order.
The main reason a car misfires is because the spark plug wires are not installed correctly. Check the car's firing order to ensure the spark plug wires running from the distributor cap to the spark plugs (in the cylinders) are in the right order. One or more spark plugs could be damaged or worn so the firing order is correct, but the spark plugs are not sparking into the spark plug wires to ignite the engine.

The spark plug wires in the cap should go clockwise in the firing order. The firing order is: 1-2-3-4-5-6.
There are couple reasons. First, the gap wasn't preinstalled properly you have to change it according requirements. Second, you installed the spark plug wires in not correct order which is bad you have to in the correct order. Third, the spark plug wires are damaged you have to replace it. Forth, check fuses.
what is the correct fireing order for each indiviual coil pack to each spark-plug, i need to know if i have the spark-plug wires connected to the coils in the right spot, and to the right coil
check haynes manual "firing sequence" or "firing order"
Spark plug wires are made in the way when it's really hard to connect wires in a wrong order, they have certain length and a special holder which prevents mistakes during repair process.
Open the hood and chase out the spark plug wires.
find the wires and do one at a time as too not cross wires with different plugs
can be the ign. coil. worn spark wires
If it is backfiring the timing is set incorrectly or the spark plug wires are not connected in the correct order.
They have to be in the firing order.
Are you wanting to know the order of the wires on the engine or the distributer cap?
The Lincoln LS ( 3.0 V6 and 3.9 V8 ) engines have the Coil On Plug ( C.O.P.) ignition system with either six or eight individual coils . So you do not see the " normal " spark plug wires
Disconnect the battery, and remove the spark plug wires one by one. Replace the spark plug wires in the same order, ensure the connection is firm, and connect the battery.
No the spark plug wires have to be in firing order
where can you find a diagram to correct the wires from the distributor to the spark plugs on 95 ford e250?
those particular wires and plugs are located in the engine compartment under the hood of that Lincoln the spark plugs are located on both sides of the engine block about half way down the wires are connected to the spark plugs and then run all the way to the coil/distributer whatever that particular model has good luck
By any chance did you take all the spark plug wires off at the same time? Are you sure that you have the firing order correct? Did you get the plug wire connectors seated on the top of the spark plugs securely? You should feel a 'click' when removing the wires. Did you seat the plug wires in the distributor completely? If there is a gap, it can cause the cylinder to miss.
Put markings on the original wires with paint or white-out and take pictures with a digital camera before you remove them.
You need to check wires. Make sure that you connected plug wires in the correct order. Check that wires are sitting tightly on spark plugs. If it didn't work, remove spark plugs and check the gap for all of them. Install the spark plugs and try to start again. If it didn't work install old spark plugs and try again. If it didn't work check the fuse box under the hood. Hopefully it works.
To much resistance in the spark plug wires. Start fresh with a new distributor cap, rotor and spark plug wires. Also be sure you have the correct spark plugs installed.
always change 1 at a time. ok if you have them all off find the firing order and put them back on
