Looking into the motor #1 is on your left.firing order is 1 3 4 2 from left to right.

I got a 92 colt and I believe # 1 is on the opposite side. The firing order 1 3 4 2 is correct.

I have a different . I'm looking at the Chilton's (1971-1989 Colt) and it has a diagram indicating that for all engines of that year the #1 cylinder is nearest the front of the engine (the front of the engine is not the side of the engine near the front of the car, but it is the side of the engine with the timing belt). If this is true, than as you stand in front of the car looking at the engine, #1 is farthest right. The order from left to right is 4-3-2-1 (this is the same as saying that the order from front (the timing belt side of engine) to back is 1-2-3-4. The firing order for all engines of that year is 1-3-4-2. In fact, according to Chilton's, all engines all years have the cylinders in the same order (from front of engine to back 1-2-3-4) and the firing order is always 1-3-4-2.

Cylinder 1 is @ the drive belt side of the engine(passenger side), and Cylinder 4 is closest to the transmission side of the engine(driver side).

In terms of engines, an external combustion engine such as a steam engine burns fuel outside of the pressure cylinder used to drive the piston. An internal combustion engine such as a petrol or diesel engine burns the fuel inside the pressure cylinder used to drive the piston.
