Firing order

Electrical problem 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 220 Km miles

I just change my spark plugs, distrubutor cap, rotor, air filter. The reason why I did this iis because I failed the emmission test for HC on idle only. The standard was 200 and I got 244. Because the age of the vehicle, I decided the change the above. After the change to my dissapointment, the engine miss, back fired and smell high scent of gas. I repaired it myself and I believed I mix up the firing order of the spark plug wires. Please describe the firing order for my vehicle. A diagram accompanying would be appreciated. Thanks

I have a 99 honda crv lx it was chugging so we have changed the cap and rotor as well as the plug wires but the firing order of 1342 wouldnt start with this so it is at 3421 now and it starts but seems to be on only 2 cylinders does this mean the timing is off

A firing order always starts at no.1 cylinder then the rest follows-Verify the valve and ignition timing if its correct-
