    Firing Orders

    NOTE
    To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement.

    If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations.

    NOTE
    To avoid confusion, always remove and tag all ignition related wires one at a time.

    On 2.0L engines, if a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring may be the correct firing order, but could change the relative installation of the plug wires in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations.
