EDIT: Still not sure why the cars aren't showing up in signature but the post below refers to a '95 and '93 Accord both 4-cyl 2.2l.
I know the firing order on the 1993 Accord is 1-3-4-2.
What I don't get is how the spark plug wires are supposed to be arranged. The haynes manual shows a circle with four circles inside arranged in a diamond pattern. This is I am assuming, the distributor. Now it appears to imply that spark plug "1" starts off on the bottom and going clockwise should be "3", "4" and then "2".
But I'm not sure how to apply this to the car. Because the Haynes manual also shows the word "front" for the front of the car and the diagram could then mean the circle on the bottom is actually the plug socket closest to the front of the car on the distributor.
Right now my plugs are arranged as follows:
Spark plug one is closest to the front of the car.
Spark plug two is closest to the sky.
Spark plug three is closest to the ground.
Spark plug four is closest to the firewall.
Do I have them in the wrong order?
On a 1995 Accord the order is the same but the Haynes manual diagram does away with the confusing "front" thing and just shows it as it looks on the distributor I think. In this case plug one starts closest to the front of the car and goes clockwise.
The problem is, on the 1995 Accord I just checked and plug three is installed closest to the sky and plug two is installed closest to the ground. Firing order would then be wrong wouldn't it?
If both are supposed to have the same firing order and same arrangement of plugs, since both of them are not the same (plugs two and three are reversed), one of the cars have to be wrong right? Uh oh...
