3rd plug from #1. #1 is closest to the assy drive (alt. PS). Cylinders are 1-2-3-4 from assy side. Firing order is different from cylinder location.

Ps. Do you have 560,000 miles or 56,000? :) I would change the plugs, use NGK or Denso Iridium.

Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Disconected wires to spark plug and need to reinstall the wires. Had lost the firing or for this model.

I had changed the sparks but not the wires and had degreased the engine. Water had got into 2 of the spark plug tubes. Since then the car is misfiring. The old cable I just plugged back in according to there size. What could be the problem. What I am doing now is I took the wires off and soaked up a much of the water out of the spark tubes and now am letting it dry. But before I put on the new spark wires and need the correct firing or in say a diagram or explanation. If not I will just reconnect according to size of the wire and how far it can reach.

Engine Mechanical problem
1989 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual

I a 1989 Toyota Corolla twin cam 1.6 Liter DOHC I was leaking oil from the distributor O-ring. So, I replaced the O-ring but, in doing so I neglected to mark the location of the of the rotor inside. Not it wont start. I believe the time is off! Can you tell me the firing order and how I should proceed from here?

It ran like a souped up sewing machine before I it. Thanks so much!

Rotate engine to TDC #1. Remove dist. Cap. Rotor should be pointing at #1 spark plug wire. #1 is first cylinder on assy. Side (alt, AC, WP).

Remove dist. And adjust so rotor is pointing at #1. Rotation is counterclockwise on 4AFE engine.

I have an 1991 ae92 with a 4afe engine. The car was idling at 1500-2000 rpms and sometimes 3000rpms. I went rearranging the plugs on the distributor and it was idling lower but was vibrating really bad and I cant remember the correct setup for the plugs on the distributor

You shouldn't get the back firing if its wired correctly if so there's something else is wrong

An idle that high indicates a vacuum leak. Look at fuel injector seals, intake manifold gasket, PCV valve or any hose connected to manifold vacuum.

Also check your base timing.

If a vacuum leak is bad enough, it will cause loss of power, high idle, misfiring and an extremely lean A/F ratio.
