    Default Honda City IDSI 2008 spark plug firing sequence

    Hi experts

    I am newbie with HOnda city. I would like to know what is the cylinder order / spark plug firing sequence for the 8 plugs?

    I previously had a Toyota with Distributor/single ignition coil and the sequence was 1-2-4-3. I want to know what it is for IDSI. Forgive me if I am using the wrong term. Thank you.

    Honda City IDSI 2008 spark plug firing sequence -1551383

    I am just curious which plug fires first? Also, I am planning to check the individual coils to see if there is a bad coil. Thank you.

    Not sure about firing order but one thing is for sure.90% of times the rear coils go weak (not the one in the front as you have shown)

    If you're experiencing bad idling, missing and major/minor jerks while drive the car, you have a weak/damaged coil.

    I've owned an iDSI for 10 years, 100% of the time the rear coils went bad. The front ones never gave up.

    Easy way out is to change the set.in idsi it usually r the rear ones n people change all four.
    I saw mechanic checking coil strength in rather crude way. Pulling 1 by 1 out n checking spark strength or possible current leak (more visible in dark)
