My Opel kadette has no power and backfires when I over rev it refuses to go up any hills and has a continues miss fire


It sounds like your firing order is out or your timing is out or you have fuel starvation.
I believe the firing order is 1-3-4-2 on your car. Only English Fords had a firing order of 1-2-4-3 and VW beetles are 1-4-3-2.
Next. check the timing. You should have a spark on no 1 cylinder when the timing mark on the front pulley is about 16 degrees from top dead center - there is a mark on the pulley to show these positions. If you don't know how to check it, take it to a service agent.
Make sure your fuel filter is clean - replace it, they are cheap - and then make sure you have good fuel flow to the carburetor.
Finally, you could have burnt valves. This will mean taking off the cylinder head and reseating or even replacing burnt valves. This could be a costly job and should be done by a qualified technician.

What is compression leak


Compression is what happens when the piston comes up and compresses the fuel/air mixture. Then the spark plug ignites it and the explosion drives the piston down in turn, turning the Crankshaft in turn making the car go. A compression leak is when this compressed fuel/air mixture is escaping from the combustion chamber.. This can happen 3 ways. 1. Bad piston rings, 2. Blown head gasket or cracked head or block, (usually caused by overheating), Or the least costly.. loose spark plugs.

I have oil leaking into were my spark plugs are what can it be


This is caused by a leaking valve cover gasket, you will need to replace it.
Instructions
    • 1Pop the hood on the engine compartment and make sure the engine is cool. Disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent possible shock. Remove the air outlet using a screwdriver. Loosen the PCV hose clamp at the valve cover with the screwdriver and pull the hose from it. Disconnect the quick connect fitting from the fuel line at the fuel rail.
    • 2Remove the fuel line clips from the fuel line bracket. Reposition the fuel feed line out of the way of the valve cover. Remove the bolt from the fuel line bracket using a wrench and take the bracket off. Mark the proper location of each of the wires on the ignition coils using the marker and masking tape and then pull them off.

    • 3
    • Remove the wiring harness clips from the valve cover. Remove the valve cover bolts using a socket and ratchet. Pull the valve cover away from the cylinder head. Remove the valve cover gasket from the cylinder head. Use the scraper to remove any gasket material that remains. Clean the cylinder head mounting surface using the rags.
    • 4Place a new gasket on the cylinder head. Place the valve cover on the gasket and line it up properly with the cylinder head. Secure the valve cover bolts using the socket and ratchet. Attach the wiring harness clips to the valve cover. Attach the wires to the ignition coils according to the labels you made.
    • 5Place the fuel line bracket in place and tighten the bolt with the wrench. Move the fuel line back into place and attach the fuel line clips to the bracket. Connect the quick connect fitting of the fuel line to the fuel rail. Connect the hose to the PCV valve at the valve cover and tighten the clamp with the screwdriver.
    • 6Connect the air outlet and tighten the clamp with the screwdriver. Connect the battery cable. Start the engine and check the valve cover for leaking around the new gasket.
  • It is important that you disconnect the battery as instructed. Otherwise, you are not only at risk of electrical shock, but you may also short out and damage other components.

    2001 Chevy S-10. Changed head gasket. Motor cranks,but won't fire.


    did you have to mess with the timing at all? it may be 180 degrees out. check your timing marks and be sure that they are lined up after the tension is added. there could be many reasons do you have reasonable experience? that can be a big job and its easy to forget to connect something check all your ignition my guess is that if the timing is right your not getting either spark or fuel hope this helps

    Had intake manifold leaking water. went all the way to the heads and replaced all the gaskets. all good right? now it wont start, have adjusted valve more than 4 times. I'm not 180 out and coil has spark,...


    You may not be 180 out but could be 30 degrees out of time which will cause the same condition. This usually happens when your valves are not set to TDC on the #1 Compression stroke but for the Number 2 or 3 and the Pistons are at #1 TDC. Your getting fire to the cylinder but there is nothing to ignite when it reaches the plug. Make sure both valves are closed on the #1 cylinder and that the #1 is Top Dead Center on the compression stroke then verify the Timing marks are lined up for the timing chain/belt. This should resolve your problem.

    I have a suzuki escudo(sidekick) 1993 and have no spark


    If its not the igniter, maybe you forgot to time the engine (timing marks will align at #4 firing poition, not at #1) when you remove the cam shaft.If the engine is not properly timed during assembly, it will not surely fire.
