Talking 98 S70 2.4 non turbo firing order

Hi! Can you give me the firing order for a 98 S70 2.4 NON turbo? Also.....standing at the driver's side front fender, looking at the distributor cap, is the No.1 wire at the bottom left (approximately the 7:00 position), and if I understand correctly, the numbering system should go counterclockwise...is that right? Thanks!! I picked up new Bosch platinum 4 plugs and a new set of wires this morning, attempting to fix a minor "miss"....and now I have a HUGE miss, to the point of the car not wanting to run once it is put in gear, after the guy at the parts store decided he was going to "swap out" a couple of plug wires which he "thought" were not straight. Anyway........wanna make SURE I do get it right. THANKS!!

Is the cap original or a Bosch one?
If so it should have a black cover on it. It also has the cylinder #'s on it.
Then where the black hold down is on the wires like where it goes out from under the top plastic cover the numbers are on the black hold down as well.

The distributor cap is a Bosch. The ONLY numbers (and I may not be looking at the right spot) that it shows, is on the outside, directly underneath where it says "Bosch"...there is a small "3". That's the only number I saw on it. The wire hold down is split, so any numbers that may have been on there...are long gone....sorry!!

I will have to see what I can find tomorrow. Sorry but I do not know off the top of my head.
everything I use has numbers and I match them up.

OK-thanks a bunch!! I am thinking I will just go ahead and get another distributor cap and rotor, and replace them while I am into this mess. If I do, I will be sure to get a numbered distributor cap, just pull ALL the wires from the old one, and start over, making sure to check and double check, as I reinstall them on the new one.

In your opinion.....seeing as how it was missing MUCH worse after I replaced the plugs and new wires, if I go ahead and do the cap and rotor....think I will have my problem fixed, or is there something else it could be, also?

Thanks!!!

That should fix it. That is the common faults for misfiring.

I will still also try to get the info and take pics of the wires and cap to post in there for future help.
