What is the cylinder order of a m54b30

What's the order of the cylinders? I've got a misfire due to low fuel pressure in cylinder 5 and I want to swap the injector with another to make sure that's the problem before I buy a part. Hurry I've already yanked everything out of the car

I needed to know the exact same thing bro. I have a misfire in cylinder 4 and I changed the spark plug. Tomorrow I am gonna change the engine coil. I saw on the internet that the firing order is: raise the hood.......stand on the passenger side of the car looking at the engine coils and count them from right to left.....1-6

Wait man.....no wonder my car is still misfiring.....I think I changed the wrong spark plug.....so if I'm looking at the engine from the passenger side with the hood up it is in that order?

1 in the front down to 6 in the back is the cylinder position.

Well I swapped injectors one with two, three with four, and five with six, cleared all the codes, and started the car, not I can really tell it's misfiring(much more noticeable shaking) but no codes yet.
Already have changed all the plugs and half the ignition coils.
And just to clarify if your standing with the hood up in front of the car cylinder one is closest and cylinder 6 is farthest?


Should I be able to blow air through the injectors or not? I didn't try with the first two I pulled and swapped, one of the other four I was able to blow air through and the other three I couldn't.

I had the same issue and its O2 sensor related undo your sensors drive the car like that, if no issue anymore replace the sensors .
