Lima firing order. My engine doesn't match all of the diagrams!
I got my first Lima yesterday, and the used car shark sold it because he says it is dead on one cylinder. His exact words were "Sometimes when I move the wires around, it will run a little bit better."
Nice, well, Let's start correcting this dead cylinder by getting the firing order correct.
This would be a 1991 XLT.
All of the diagrams I have found (and all of the Limas I have ever looked at), have the coil packs next to each other on the left/passenger side of the engine. My engine has a coil pack on each side of the engine.
This being the case, is the firing order still the same? And in the diagrams showing the coil packs next to each other, does the "bottom" coil pack represent the left or right side ignition wires?
To move ahead, once I am certain the plug wires are in their correct positions, if I still have a misfire, what should be my next step? He swears the engine hasn't jumped time, but I can check that. Crank position sensor? Bad coil? Whats more likely to fail? Being a waste spark system, and that it only seems to be dead on one cylinder, I'm tending to rule out the coils.
