I attached the info you requested. Your cap should marked for number 1 and then the others are counterclockwise around the cap.

Take a look at the documents and let me know if you have questions. Thanks

I was doing a tune up on my Accord and I think I must have the wiring wrong or I hit the timing, so I need to know what the wiring and timing is for my accord. It will not start. Can you help?

Engine Performance problem
1997 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive 140000 miles

I drove the car from FL to VA, when we arrived in VA it was snowing and the next day the car would not start. After a couple of days when the weather got warmer the car turned on. In summer time when it rains it doesn't turn on either until the weather gets dry and the sun comes out. I have changed: Spark plugs, spark plugs wires, distributor, checked if gas was coming in engine and it is, charged battery at advance auto part and battery is fine, changed starter not to long ago but the problem persist. I would like to know what else do you advise me to check because I runned out of ideas of what is wrong with my car.

I also took out the spark plugs cables and did not pay attention of the position of the cables in the distributor cap. Could you tell me how to put them back where they belong.

Four cylinder front wheel drive automatic 17,600 miles. Would you please send me a diagram of the firing order from the distributor to the engine? I got mad at my husband and took the wires out and now it is not running properly. So to redeem myself he said I have to find out the firing order.

Thank you, Kim P.

It is 1,3,4,2. Here is a picture so you can see the distributor and its rotation as well as the firing order. Let me know if you need any thing else.

Hello and thanks for using 2CarPros. The are two different 2.2L four cylinder engines. VTEC and non-VTECH. I'm attaching the images for both. Check your vehicle emissions label to know which diagram to go by. It should be under the hood somewhere. If not, post the VIN number in this thread and I should be able to look it up for you.

Thanks again for using 2CarPros. Good luck!

Here you go. This applies to both the regular 2.2 engine and the VTEC engine. Honda is less than forthcoming about telling me which engine your car has. Anyways, let me know if there's anything else that I can do.

I forgot the firing order for my car it is the LX model and now I hear a misfire. The reason why is due to me replacing my distributor I had carelessly unhooked the ignition wires. Now I go on the web and I cannot even find it.
