Default What is the right spark plug wire placement for a 98 Honda Civic EX?

The car won't start and I was told that could be the problem... I bought new wires, but someone else took the old ones out and didn't take note of where the new ones should be placed. Anyone know of a diagram or know where they should go?

You need to first know what type of engine you have. After you get the information all you need to know is the firing order. Any good shop manual will tell you that. Normally people replace one wire at a time to better insure they're installed correctly.

Looking under the hood towards the windshield, the cylinders are numbered from right to left 1, 2, 3, and 4. Looking at the distributor cap, the order is in a counter-clockwise rotation, starting from the plug closest to you, on the top, 3, 1, 2 and 4. Plug the corresponding cylinders in to the distributor cap, using the longest wire for the plug farthest from the distributor cap. I can send a diagram from the honda service manual if you need it. Just contact me.
