Cylinder number and firing order

I tried the search and I can't seem to find anything, does anyone know which cylinders are which number and what the firing order is? I.E. If I have to find TDC of cyl 1, which cyl is 1 and so forth. And then what order does each cyl fire at. Thanks!

That sounds like an odd firing order. I was guessing 1,4,5,2,3,6 but I could be wrong. Thanks though!

According to what you call the front and back bank, the front bank is actually the back bank when you are standing in front of the car then? According to the website it says 1,3,5 is on the right hand side when you are standing at the belts. So 2,4,6 would be next to the fire wall. In conclusion, and correct me if I am wrong, if you are standing in front of the car with the hood popped the cylinders and firing order would look like this.

246
135

^^^^This is not correct

Cylincer #1 is always the one closest to the timing belt. This happens to be on the bank CLOSEST to the fire wall. So the rear bank containts 1,3,5 and the front bank that you see as soon as you open the hood has 2,4,6.

According to the website this is what it says.

The 6G72 (3.0L) engine is a six-cylinder engine. The cylinder numbers are assigned as 1-3-5 for the right bank and 2-4-6 for the left bank from the front of the engine (timing belt side). This engine is fired in the order of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 cylinders.

When the hood is opened the timing belt is on the left hand side when you are standing in front of the car. So in turn, if you walk to the passenger side of the car and look at the engine the timing belt is closest and the tranny is furthest away. Am I confused on what I have italisized. This is how I am interperting the right and left bank. If that's the case then the right bank is towards the front and the back bank is towards the firewall. Sorry for sounding so dumb but can someone please clairify this. Thanks!

You are reading it wrong. Right bank/Left bank comes from RWD vehicles. The point of view is from the drivers seat. In our FWD transverse engines the point of view is from the transmission side. Therefore if you are standing on the drivers side, cylinder # 1 is the furthest cylinder away from you (nearest the timing belt).

yup


it comes from RWD terms.... just imagine spinning your engine and trans to the RWD position and that would be the left/right banks...

chinchooter11 : who are you?
esay way to find what cylinder is number one is look at the front of the ENGINE i mean where all the pullys area and the timing gears are not the front of the CAR. THen see what head is sticking out farther that should be cylinder number one. for all that dont under stand ill draw it up.
