SOURCE: corolla 96 motot starts to cut and/surge in and out

firstly remove the inlet fuel line at the filter and and blow down line with a compressor ,removing fuel cap first,if this doesnt work then it could be fuel pump pressure of air flow meter ,but iam often wrong with this sort of thing and it turns out to be the radio,all joking aside try blowing out fuelline doesnt work??then take it to dealer for computer check

SOURCE: failed smog

My truck (92 with a 5.0) acted similar. It ran bad, hesitant, and very rich and my check engine light came on. It turned out being the fuel regulator. A bunch of sensors came up as bad on the computer test but i never changed any of them. Regulators are usually cheap. Hope this helps!

8n ford tractor will only run 1/2 open. Can it be out a 180 deg. and still run?

That engine or any other will not run 180 degrees out of time. The rotor may have been pointing 180 degrees from where the book says it should be pointing and 180 degrees from the #1 plug wire in the distributor cap but it still could have been in perfect time. The wire that goes to the #1 spark plug can come out of any of the four holes in the distributor cap as long as the rotor is pointing to the right cylinder at the right time. I never worry myself about setting a distributor into the cam gear so that the rotor is pointing to the hole in the cap that is marked #1. I put the engine on top dead center of the #1 cylinder and then put the wire coming from that plug into the hole in the cap where the rotor is pointing and then place the remaining three wires around the cap according to the firing order and the direction of rotation of the rotor. Then finish by fine turning the ignition timing.
If the engine was blowing out the intake instead of sucking at the intake the problem was that an intake valve was remaining open on the compression stroke of the piston and forcing the air backwards out the intake.
If in fact the ignition was happening 180 out of time and the fuel was being ignited and blowing fire out the intake there is only two explanations for that. Either someone did you a trick on the wires on the distributor cap or the distributor drive gear is loose on the distributor shaft and you can rest assured that the same thing is in your future because it will move again and you will have either the same symptoms or the engine will fail to run at all no matter how you try to set the distributor timing.

My ford600 tractor won't start,was running but backfired and died.

Check the coil. Should have .4 to 2 ohms resistance on the positive and negative terminals and 6 thousand to 15 thousand on the positive and coil wire connection.

Timing settings on john deere 2140 four cylinder tractor

Setting valve timing isn't rocket science. Step 1 is to turn the crank until the timing mark on the pulley is aligned with the mark on the block. If you can't find the timing marks remove the no 1 spark plug or injector. Place a straight piece of wire into the hole and slowly turn the crank until the wire is pushed right to the top. At this point there will be a slight movement of the crank either way where no movement is felt or seen on the wire. This is called top dead centre (tdc) on no. 1 cylinder. By the way, no 1 cylinder is always the cylinder nearest the radiator.
The next step is to turn the camshaft - assuming the tappet cover has already been removed - and to watch for the point at which the no 1 cylinder's valves "rock", that is, the exhaust valve closes just before the intake valve opens. Watch the tappets, they will alternate as you move the camshaft, which by the way is not easy to do since you have to overcome the compression of the valve springs.
Once you have no1 tdc set and no1 valve set rocking, attach the timing chain and replace the spark plug / injector.
If your tractor has a petrol (gasoline) engine, remove the distributor cap. See that the distributor rotor is pointing to the no 1 spark plug wire position on the cap. Turn the engine anticlockwise just a mite off tdc, and see if the point gap is just breaking.
If all these timing issues are sorted, the engine should kick over without any hassles.
Have fun, mechanics are a gas.

1991 toyota corolla has runing issue-changed the distributor, the rotor, the rotor cap and all plug wires

run the fault codes to find the faulty sensors as it may be injector problems or fuel pressure faults.

Replaced bad fuel pump, installed new relay and fuel filter, engine turns over but is not firing on..... positive the fuel pump is pumping gas and checked to see if gas was going thru fuel filter. Tried...

Hi, Ok you have confirmed that it's not a fuel problem. You need to check for spark. Pull the coil wire off of the coil(secondary lead-looks like a spark plug wire) Have some one crank it over and listen for a popping sound. IF yes, spark is at the coil, that means all ignition sensors are working. Next check for spark at ends of wires after cap. IF no replace cap and rotor. IF yes remove a couple spark plugs and check for fouling(wet, fuel etc...) IF yes replace or clean plugs and retest for starting. IF no spark is present at coil you need to scan computer and watch for rpm signal. IF no rpm signal, replace crankshaft sensor with OEM delco part. BIGGEST problem with these engines is Cap and Rotor burn out.

I have a Mazda astina 323 94 model it cranks but won't start doesn't seem to be any spark from the leads I have recently changed the leads , Im guessing it's the coil and distributor cap please help

1 remove the cable from the coil to the distributor.
check this agains earth, when you turn the engine over.

if spark, suspect rotor arm is not setting spark to each spark plug lead.
open distributor and clean the rotor arm with a cloth or wire wool
not sand paper as this will take off too much and cause a problem

2 check inside distributor for moisture. spray inside with WD40 or equiventy water repelent.

3 if not spark at coil open distriutor cap and with ignition on, open and close points in distributor with a screw driver and check coil again against earth again if you get sparh, problem is points not opening and closing.

4 turn over engine with distributor cover removed to see if rotor arm is moving if not then cam drive to distributor is defective. this controls points and rotor arm.

if rotor arm turning and spark at points but no spark at coil suspect Low tension wiring or coil needs replacement.

i hope this was helpful

I have a 1989 F250 with a 460 gas motor, it starts but after 1 or 2 seconds it dies, can pump peddle to 2500 rpms but surges between 2500 and 2000 rpms, changed fuel filter, still have problem, any...

Sounds electrical - - check the distributor and remove the cap - check the wiring - you may have to replace the point module. - check it and it is not too expensive to replace.
Check the ROTOR - and also the CAP for a CRACK - do not remove the plug wires but ONE AT A TIME -

I am having hesitation when start of acceleration. Already changed plugs, fuel filter

I had the same problem. New plugs, wires, fuel filter, air filter, MASS airflow sensor cleaned and still it would hesitate. It seemed to get worse when warm. Sunday I fixed the problem. Take the distributor cap and rotor off. Under the rotor there is a metal plate held on by two screws. Take the plate off, this will expose the optical Cam sensor. I took a can of MASS airflow cleaner (Plastic safe)(can buy at advanced auto parts) and sprayed heavily. Once it was dry I put it all back together and it runs like new.
