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.

A couple of questions. 1) Did you replace the whole distributor? Or just the cap and rotor? 2) If you replaced the whole distributor, did you get cylinder one's piston at top dead center before removing the old distributor?

Let us know.

Okay I will assume that means that you pulled the whole distributor (shaft and all). When you remove a distributor, you are supposed to get cylinder one's piston at top dead center first so that the timing chain/belt stays on and everything stays in the right place. You get cylinder one at TDC by pulling the spark plug, disconnecting the coil wire, and simply putting a ram rod down into the cylinder to check the position of the piston. Then you take the ram rod out, give the key a quick turn (just to turn the engine a bit) and measure again. Do this several times until you are confident that the piston is as high up as it gets.

Since the timing belt is now off and the top and bottom half of the engine are out of time with each other, you will need to have the timing belt replaced and the engine put back into time. Hopefully none of the valves are bent. I would highly suggest getting a professional to take it from here.

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.

Have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the plugs. If you have spark everywhere, use a gage and check fuel pressure. Any applicable trouble codes? How long since a tune-up?
