What is the firing order for a 2000 honda accord 4 cylinder and where is one on the dist cap? And do you go clockwise or counter clockwise?

Direction can be determined by removing Distributor cap and observing direction while cranking. Watching valve movement can determine order.
TXgreaseMonkey probably has on his link for Honda's:
May be 1,3,4,2?

Remove all spark plugs. When Cylinder #1 is at TDC, the rotor will point to Distributor Cap Terminal #1. Going clock-wise, the order is 1, 3, 4, and 2.

TDC Compression stroke, TX forgot to mention 2 TDCs for a 4 stroke, needs to be on compression stroke, not exhaust stroke. If unsure, swap all wires 180 degrees.
