Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

I am attaching the firing order here though there would be two cylinders missing if you put the plug wires on wrong. Worth checking anyway. I assume either you or the parts store dropped and cracked one of the plugs. It happens all the time.

Let me know if you need anything further.

Please RATE my service so I get credit for helping you.
Thanks and happy holidays!
