Alright, Haro probably has a photo as usual but we'll make it even simpler.

Look at the coils, they're numbered. Now looking at the engine, standing in front of the car, the bank closest to you is ordered from left to right, 1, 3, 5 and the bank to the rear is 2, 4, 6. Can't get much easier than that! Good luck!

Now where they are numbered can you change those because they are in no specific order they go like this


6 3
2 5
4 1

Okay Thank You
They were hooked up
wrong could this have caused
a starting problem
where it would turn over but not
stay running. ? but it would eventually start ?

If it'* working now, I guess you could say the answer to your question is probably yes.

After having someone else not hook up the plug wires in my 94 correctly last summer, I actually had the exact same car behavior you described. For 3 seconds, and then it was fixed. If you want something done right, you've got to do it yourself.

It depends on how badly mixed they are. The car will start and drive on 4 cylinders.
