owners manual may have it. Thats why you do one plug and one wire at a time.


search online you may find it. Go by auto zone and by the repair manual for it then you will know, keep the manual for future reference.

just match number 1 coil to 1 cylinder 2 coil to 2 cylinder 3 coil to 3 cylinder 4 coil to 4 cylinder... the firing order is just how the engine fires off the plug...

dont worry about firing order, that has nothing to do with how the wire go. Just match the numbers up.

Firing order gives you which cylinders fire in order. Not all cylinders fire together and they dont fire in numerical order

did you gap the plugs to spec? new plugs do not come pre-gapped.

make darn sure the web page you linked is the right one for your car....make sure the plug wires snap when you attach them to your plugs. make sure they are snapped tightly to your coils. Make sure the wiring harness is plugged into your coils.
