Your local library should have a basic auto manual for older Ford V8s. They are basically the same. Look up "firing order" and there is your answer.Firing order should be counterclockwise 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8 1930fcoupe The firing order for all ford V8's through 1978, except 351, 351W, and 400, is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. The Distributor rotates counterclockwise and No 1 cylinder is the first one on the left side as you stand in front of the truck & face the crankshaft pulley. Left bank is 1-4 and right bank is 5-8. Remove the # 1 plug and rotate the engine until #1 plug is at TDC on the compression stroke. Now remove the distributor cap. The rotor will be pointing to the # 1 plug. Hook #1 wire there and then remembering that it rotates counterclockwise continue hooking up the rest.

The distributors have the wire numbers stamped on top. When I changed mine, I happened to clean the crud off, and there they were.

On a car with a distributor: cap, rotor, plugs and wires On a car with coil packs: plugs and wires

The diagram, for the 1992 5.7 liter distributor And wires, can be obtained from most Chevrolet dealerships. The diagram can also be found at most auto-parts stores.

It is in the very back of the engine. Just follow the spark plug wires from the spark plugs and they will go to the top of the Distributor. That will be the distributor cap that the wires are in.

Check/replace the spark plugs and wires. If you're not going to replace the plugs make sure the gap is correct (should be either .040 or .060) and make sure the plugs are clean of oil or gas. If it still backfires after you replace the plugs/wires check the distributor and the timing.

it does not have a distributor cap, it has a coil pack, all you can change is the plugs and wires, just fallow the wires from the plugs back to where they end and theres your coil pack, butch

No it is probably ur spark plugs or spark plug wires, that electric distributor or coil No it is probably ur spark plugs or spark plug wires, that electric distributor or coil

User Avatar

faulty ignition components. you need a tune up. plugs, cap and rotor,and wires but it is usually caused by a bad distributor cap.

User Avatar

Look at the spark plugs-- if one has no wire at the top, that is the problem- there should be a wire from each spark plug to the distributor cap.

Follow the plug wires from the distributor.

there is no distributor on a 1994 firebird v6. It is a DIS and uses coil packs. there will be 3 coil packs and it should be listed on them which cylinder iteach coil goes to.

User Avatar

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

Make sure your plug wires are connected tightly to the correct spot on the distributor and the plugs.

User Avatar

you remove the wires that are going to the distributor and look where the distributor meets the intake there is a little plate the rests against the distributor and it has a bolt in it remove that and pull distributor up and out and u have to remove wires that go to the plugs as well

User Avatar

It has spark plugs, plug wires, and a distributor.

Follow the plug wires to the end. One end connects to the "distributor" along with the other wires. The other end connects to the spark plugs...

User Avatar

Check the spark plug wires and the distributor cap.

User Avatar

One goes to the ignition, the other two to the spark plugs.

User Avatar

4.3? Follow the spark plug wires from the spark plugs, they will lead you right to the distributor.

User Avatar

Follow the wires from the spark plugs and they will go to the distributor unless the engine does not have one and has a coil pack.

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.
