It's been a while, but I'm pretty sure the 'firing order' for the mk 2 fiesta is 1-3-4-2. So if you look at engine from the front #1 cylinder is the left one (furthest from distributor). The easiest way to align you engine timing/firing order is to remove the cam-belt cover on the left-hand side of engine (10mm socket, bit of a squeeze). You will now be able to see the timing marks on the cam pulley wheel & engine block, to line these up put the car in 1st gear and rock/push the car enough to turn the pulley without starting the car. you now have the firing position for #1 cylinder, the 'dizzy' cap only fits one way so fit lead for #1 where the rota arm is positioned, bear in mind the engine rotates anti-clockwise as look across engine bay from near side or towards you if you standing in front. Fit lead for #3, #4 then #2.
Number 1 plug position will be listed on the cap. Now if you know the firing order, and you know the direction the distributor is turning, you then will know plug positions as connected to the distributor cap.
whats the motor.....but regardless if you follow the plug wires they lead to the distributor cap. v6 has 6 plug wires.....one to each plug and all of the on the distributor cap.......v8 has 8 plugs with their wires leading from each plug to the distributor cap
On top of the distributor. Follow the spark plug wires. They lead to the distributor.
rotor should point at number 1 plug lead when engine is at tdc make a mark with whiteout ,on outside of distributor before you remove distributor cap. make this mark where the #1 spark plug lead would be if distributor cap was on distributor when you remove cap this is where rotor needs to be pointing
Faulty plug lead, and/or distributor cap,if applicable
4.3? Follow the spark plug wires from the spark plugs, they will lead you right to the distributor.
Depends on the make/model/year vehicle.. depends on who set the distributor. easier again shortest lead to nearest plug ....second shortest to second plug and so on
The distributor rotor spins inside the distributor and makes contact with the electrode going to each plug wire, thus firing that plug at just the right time. On a car with coil on plug this is done by a signal from the computer.
On the 4.3L V6 the distributor is located in the back of the engine, in the middle. Just follow the spark plug wires and they will lead you to it.
Not sure, but you might find an old Chiltons manual on Amazon or Ebay.
Remove the spark plugs, use a spanner to turn the crankshaft until you see a piston at the top of the cylinder (top dead centre), that is the chamber about to fire so the lead from that plug should be matched to whichever lead the rotor arm inside the distributor cap is in contact with, or is about to contact. Repeat the procedure to determine the 2nd and 3rd in the firing sequence, then you can guess where the last one goes.
It does not use a distributor, it has a coil on each plug.It does not use a distributor, it has a coil on each plug.
Assuming this is the 4.3L engine, the distributor cap would be found in the back of the engine on top. All the spark plug wires lead to it.
The Toyota Camry used distributors in its engines up to 1996. Just follow the spark plug wires. They will lead right to the distributor.
It is in the very back of the engine. Just follow a plug wire from the spark plug to the distributor cap. It is hard to see. All the plug wires start at the distributor and then hook to each plug.
There is no distributor. The ignition system is coil on plug type. Each plug has its own coil.
it has to be the distributor cap or rotor or wires...plug wires.
The COIL PACK TOWERS are numbered : coil----3---4 pack---2---6 plug----1---5
It does not have a distributor or plug wires, there is a coil over each spark plug.It is called a coil on plug system.It does not have a distributor or plug wires, there is a coil over each spark plug.It is called a coil on plug system.
Yes, if the spark plug wires can be connected to the distributor and works.
When standing on the passanger side looking at the distributor the top right plug is cylinder one (the cylinder closest to the distributor). The top left plug on the distributor is cylinder two. The bottom left plug is cylinder three. Finally the bottom left plug is cylinder four (the cylinder furthest from the distributor, closest to the timing gear). Hope this helps.
If it has a distributor, then all the plug wires will merge at the distributor. Follow the wires.
The rotor inside the distributor should be pointing at the #1 spark plug.

1993 Ford Escort 1.9 Liter Engine Spark Plug to Distributor Cap Wire Order: Looking at the engine from the front of the car, the distributor cap is to the right of the engine (or on the driver's side of the car looking from the front of the car. The spark plug wires come from each spark plug and terminate on the distributor cap. They plug in to the distributor cap. Looking at the engine from the front of the car, the spark plugs (left to right) are identified as spark plug "A", spark plug "B", spark plug "C" and spark plug "D". "A" wire comes from the "A" spark plug to the 4th (right most) hole on the distributor cap; "B" wire comes from the "B" spark plug to the 3rd (2nd right most) hole on the distributor cap; "C" wire comes from the "C" spark plug to the 2nd (left most) hole on the distributor cap and the "D" wire comes from the "D" spark plug to the left most hole on the distributor cap.
