Labels are your friends when you disconnect something.

Anyways, the wire from the coilpack at the rear on the passenger's side goes to the plug at the front on the driver's side. The wire from the middle coilpack on the passenger's side goes to the plug at the rear on the driver's side. The wire from the front coilpack on the passenger's side goes to the plug at the middle on the driver's side.

See attached drawing here

Next time, change one at a time and replace the wire as you go.

I did something simular to you and forgot where the wires went. In the end I went to a Toyota dealership and had them print out a diagram.

For God's sake be careful. The drivers side is the left side of the motor in some parts of the world. Diagrams are always better. Translated for RH drive vehicles I interpret your meaning to be- Plug 5 to Plug 2, Plug 3 to plug 6 , Plug 1 to plug 4. This is the correct order as I understand it.

Hopefully he has it figured out by now.

Old thread, and it wasn't even brought back to life by Fuster.

The way I remember it is the difference between linked cyls is always 3.

1 and 4....so...4-1=3
2 and 5....so...5-2=3
3 and 6....so...6-3=3
