Tip & How-To about Mitsubishi Mighty Max
Here are some ways that I use on a regular basis as follows:
1.Remove the plug wire, insert a screwdriver/plier/metal object that has a thick rubber/plastic handle (as you can be shocked through a thin handle). Hold the metal of the tool, about 1/4" away from an engine ground (intake manifold, egr pipe, ac hose, bolt, etc). Be sure that everything is clear off moving parts. Attempt to start the engine (you may need a helper) and observe a spark between the tool, and the engine ground (should be blue).
2. Using a 12 volt test light (available at auto parts store for $5) connect the lead to a ground or the negative (-) post of the battery. Locate your spark plugs, then insert the probe into the spark plug boot. Attempt to start the vehicle, the light should blink rapidly.
