There's a notch in the body of the distributor that lines up with a corresponding tab on the bottom of the cap.

Hello,
The 3.9 Liter is a 5.2L minus 2 cylinders. The firing order is usually stamped into the intake. Looking at the front of the truck, the left side should be evens 2, 4, 6 and odds on the right side 1, 3, 5. If it is fuel injected it is posted on the injector plugs. That helps with correct location of the cylinders. It is sometimes on the distributor cap. Trace the plug wires back to the distributor cap and fix the cross. Little tip on changing wires and distributor cap. Take cap off with wires connected then replace 1 at a time.
Good luck

I'd use a gage and check fuel pressure. Any applicable codes? How long since a tune-up?

The fuel pressure has been checked and there are no codes on the computer it was running good but then it started messing up we put new plugs and wires the magnetic pickup was changed before the truck was messed up I was wondering if it could be the idle air control sensor? We covered one hole for the trottle body and it did not backfire if it could be is there a way to check it? Is there a way to check a map sensor?
