    This is straight out of Chilton, circa 1995. Note #'s 1, 2, and 3 on the coil pack. I recently changed my plugs, wires, and starter, because I could not get it to start in the cold. Like a dummy, I took all the wires off at once and trusted Chilton. Now it cranks great until it slams to a stop. I was really thinking it was a timing problem. My timing belt is fine, and I was planning on looking at the chains today, but if Chilton was wrong I'm very happy to discover that I haven't wrecked any valves.

    Yes the Chilton manual is wrong. Aren't the cylinder numbers on the coil?

    I had the same problem when I did my plugs and wires, I trusted the chiltons manual then was running on 4 cylinders for a couple days. untill i figured out, through trial and error, that 2 cylinders in the pic were switched. I think it was the #2 and the #5 that were wrong but i cant remember, its been a while.

    The OEM wires had numbers imprinted under the plastic spiral wrap. You can still find sets around, but they are pricy. I looked at a set of AC Delco wires 826Q and they didn't have the numbers on them. Not sure about other brands.
