I don't know if your 95 GT is anything like my 90 GL, but when I put my new plug wires and distributor in, the correct order was on the side of the distributor itself. If it isn't, it is in the Ford Probe repair manual, Haynes edition. You can get it at Autozone for 20 bucks. Seems like a lot for a manual, but sometimes it does come in handy. Hope this helps.

Then take one plug wire at a time, and plug them in.

The distributor distributes the spark to the spark plugs at the correct time and order.

Distributes the spark energy from the coil to the spark plugs in the correct firing order.

To change spark plugs a person must start with a car that is off, then disconnect the batter. The person must then remove the spark plug cables, remove the spark plugs, and replace them with new spark plugs. After that, one must put the spark plug cables back in the correct order, then connect the battery.

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.

It is important to replace old spark plugs to keep a car engine running well. To replace them disconnect the battery, remove the cables, remove the old spark plugs, replace with the new spark plugs, replace the cables in the correct order, and connect the battery.

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.

Manufacturer recommended spark plug gap should be .044 I beleive. Keep in mind that some plugs come pre gapped and dont need any gapping, depending on which ones you get. -Shaun

According to one of Fords websites : A 1990 Ford Probe , 2.2L four cylinder engine has the spark plugs gapped at : ( .044 inch )

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.

Make sure the firing order is correct that you didn't mix up the leads when changing plugs.

Mark and remove plug wires. Remove spark plugs and install new plugs. Reattach plug wire to correct plug.

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 correct order of 'spark plugs' should be the firing order, which is: 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6. Standing in front of the car, with a transverse engine, the cylinders next to the fire wall are from left to right; 1 ,3 ,5. the cylinders in front from left to right are, 2 ,4 , 6.

You will need the correct replacement spark plugs, a spark plug socket, and a screw driver. The new cars have the spark plugs concealed and you might have to open the cover over the engine to access it, which may require addition tools

The Order is: Rear Spark Plugs 1-3-5 Front Spark Plugs 2-4-6

2003 c320. So a v-6 correct? They are located on both sides of the engine. Your engine will have spark plug cable wires going from the ignition coils to the spark plugs, you need to remove the cables off the plugs before you can remove the spark plugs.

what is the spark plugs firing order for a mercury villager 1997

the plugs are already gapped On edit: That is not an answer, and you never install plugs without checking the gap. The correct answer is .035".

Firing order is 1342 - spark plugs order is 1234 from left to right

Disconnect the battery, remove the spark plug wires and boot covers and remove the old spark plugs. Put in the new spark plugs, leave the correct gap size, replace the boot covers and wires and connect the battery.

Double check to make sure you have your spark plug wires in the correct order. If they're out of order (on the wrong plugs) the plugs will fire, but not in the correct order to ignite the fuel. If the wires are on in the correct order, check your ignition timing. Incorrect timing could also cause an engine with fuel and spark to not run. For references on how to check your timing, and what the timing should be, I would obtain a chilton's or hayne's repair manual. It will show you step by step how to do it, what numbers to use, and what tools you will need. Very helpful!
