    Hello Rocky112540 and thank you so much for replying

    Thank you so much for replying but i am afraid that i don't follow. what you have stated is exactly as the owner's manuel...that i follow. what i don't understand is what sequence that i needed to hook up to the two distributor caps.

    from the front of the car looking inward, there are two distributor caps...from the left to the right #s shown on caps...top row
    left right

    top 3 2 1 4
    bottom 4 1 2 3

    I don't get where the confusion is, but I will look at my car when I get home and see if I can figure it out.

    Well, sure I have no idea what you are talking about. First, there is no distributor in the 4.0 V8 of mine, not even one cup, so forget about two.
    There are four double coils in line, there is no top or botton. What are you talking about?

    coil>ignition wire order

    Hi Vash,I assume you have a discovery series 2 if so here is what you are looking for there are two coil packs at back of intake manifold each coil assembly is marked 1thru 4 .starting on drivers side look at coil pack & connect ignition wires to numbered coil towers
    #1=cylinder #6
    #2=cylinder #4
    #3=cylinder #7
    #4=cylinder #1
    (passenger side coil pack)
    #1=cylinder#3
    #2=cylinder#5
    #3=cylinder#8
    #4=cylinder#2
    Good luck!!
