Fiat Sicentio 1.1 (02 plate) problem after changing spark plugs

Hi,

My car was fine until sunday.

The Problems started when I was changing my spark plugs, one of my HT leads broke, I phoned the RAC they tried to fix it (by repariing the broke ht lead), however the car wouldn't start correclty, the engine made some strange nosices then stopped.

Next day I got a set of new HT leads, this didn't fix the problem, the engine started then cut out and died, I started it again and the engine only stayed running if I kept the revs up. Then I got a yellow symbal flashing on the dashboard (picure of yellow engine).


Again the car was fine until I tried to changes the spark plugs any ideas folks?

Thanks in advance.

Matt

Please help. I have change my plugs. The car dont want to start. There is no spark. Fiat Siena 1.2 2005


It's not the plugs. I would look at the coil/s or ignition module. Also check for codes. Could be the crank sensor is bad.

Shuts down for no apparent reason ?


Three possibilities come to mind (not sure what you mean by switch plate assembly). Ignition coil, pickup coil and ignition module. When it stalls you'll have to check to confirm there is no spark. If there is none you'll have to replace one component at a time until the problem is solved. Testing is difficult under these circumstances. If there is spark when it stalls you have a fuel problem.

At what mileage do I change the plugs on a 1.2 fiat punto, 56 plate? It is a fiat punto active


the ideal way in changing plugs is to replace it every time you change your engine oil, which is aroung 10,000 kms or 6 months (depending on the oil used). but to save some money, you can always check first the condition of your plugs if it really needs to be changed.

you can check the condition of your plugs by removing it from the cylinder head and checking its contacts:
1. if the contact is brownish in color, then your plug is still perfectly fine.
2. if it is not brown, there is either something wrong in your plug or your engine. so this will be a good time to replace your plugs.

*** tip - when changing your spark plugs, always replace all of them at the same time with the same model and same brand. this technique will ensure that your plugs will be consistent in providing spark always.

1991 Honda Civic Problems car started ok. at stop sign died will not start getting gas turns over fine.seems like no spark


whaddya mean seems like no spark. There's no such thing as "seems like no spark. There either is or isn't and it's easy to tell. remove spark plug lay against good ground and crank. you'll see it for crissse sake.

Not getting gas is a fuel delivery problem, fuse, pump, or relay.

On sunday pray for it. all the other days cuss it out.

The clicking is the starter solenoid, and the battery change doesn't change or hurt the situation, it's just coincidence. Either the solenoid or the starter itself is bad; you need the starter system tested in order to identify the problem. Get a firm estimate from any decent shop.If you need another starter, a rebuilt is just fine.
