    Ahhhh, that info would of been useful in the initial post.

    Not sure, but the normal firing order for a 4 cyl engine is 1-3-4-2.

    If thats what's marked on the coil pack, then yes, I would think so.

    Sorry I can't be more help dude, but the 1.6 engine isn't my speciality....

    I would be very surprised if it's not marks on the coil pack somewhere?
