Spark Plugs and Wires

What could be wrong with a 87 Thunderbird if the firing order is correct with brand new spark plugs spark plug wires distributor rotor ignition coil it cranks but doesnt completely turn on?

try the knock sensor or crankshaft sensor. it could be lots of things,are you getting spark from your plug wire?..attach a plastic hanled screwdriver in spark plug wire end and hold it about 1/16-1/8 inch from steel to check if its sparking..If not check the ignition module,if not it could be a fuel problem.check to see if your fuel pressure is at the right specs.check all fuses and relays also.let me know if anything worked.

The distributor send high voltage from the ignition coil to the spark plugs. It ensures that they fire at the correct time and in the correct order.

It is located underneath the distributor rotor. It is fastened down with two screws in the distributor housing. For the best access to it you will need to remove the following: spark plug wires from the distributor cap (be sure to label them for correct re-installation), distributor cap and distributor rotor.

The timing on a 1999 Honda Civic can be adjusted setting the distributor to the correct angle. Setting the distributor forward to much will mess with original settings of the ignition.

pull the distributor out and turn the fork one half turn and put it back in. hondas are typically only a half turn to correct ignition timing

That's not really what's going on. The coil makes the spark, the distributor distributes the spark to the correct plug. If the distributor is not in the correct position, the spark does not go to the correct plug, or goes to the correct plug at the wrong time.

If I am correct, I believe this vehicle is DIS(distributorless ignition system) thereby not having a cap and rotor.

Correct timing is what ever the manufacture recommends.

That is the correct spelling of the noun "distributor" (middleman, or car engine part).

Think you are talking about 'pinking'. Check plug electrode gap is correct, check distributor advance/retard mechanism, reset/retard ignition timing

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

look up the engine cylinder numbers, then look at the front of your engine, or on the intake manifold. There will be a series of raised numbers, (you may have to clean off some grease), this is your timing order. Make sure you have the correct sparkplug wires going to the correct plug from your distributor.(make sure your distributor is mounted correctly) Jody

Yes that is the correct spelling completely

That is the correct spelling of "supplier" (provider, distributor).

For most cars, the sequence is... Off, ACC, Ignition On, Start

If it has a distributor: 1. Take the ignition wires off the plugs and mark them 1 2 3 and 4. 2. Pop the cap off leaving the wires in it. 3. At the base of the distributor there is a single bolt holding it in. Mark the position of the rotor before you pull it out. 4. Lift the distributor out. 5. When replacing it make sure the rotor is in the correct position. 6. Do the reverse of these steps to put one back in.

is there any corrosion on the spades of the coil?or on the connectors?you say DIS,i think distributorless ignition system that an 89 doesnt have,is that correct?or are you meaning distributor cap?

The t100 does not have a distributor. Instead it uses 3 ignition coils ( 2 spark plugs per coil) and the computer fires the primary of the correct coil at the appropriate time. This change was primarily done to improve the ability of the computer to optimize the timing for all the variables (especially smog and performance).

The timing for a 1996 ford escort 4 cylinder engine should be 6 degrees BTDC. If it's a CVH model, 12 degrees. If it's on a distributorless engine or programmed ignition system, it can't be adjusted. Contact breaker distance should be (on a bosch distributor) .40 to .50 mm. On a Lucas distributor, .40 to .49 mm.

A 1976 Chevy did not have a points ignition, but that has nothing to do with the correct timing. You will find that the engine runs best with about 8-12 degrees BTDC.

Distributor = someone who distributes merchandise, wholesale products, etc. Distributer = a part of an automobile or car (like a regulator).

The ignition control module acts like the coil and sends the sparks to the correct cylinder when the computer tells it to.

Line up the grooves with the notches, hold the cap in place while you clip the clips, attach the spark plug wires to the numbered connections on the cap in the correct firing order (the wire from the ignition coil goes in the middle).

Yes, it is completely correct to say that. It is correct to say that could you give me.
