Yeah, on the carb linkage, where the cable from the speed lever is connected, notice when you move the lever on the bar how it moves another lever on the cable connection at carb. Now notice when you move the lever to stop position that it will move a little bent wire connected to the black wire that goes under the flywheel. This bent wire is the shut off when it is grounded out by the movement to ground of this little bent wire. The intire bracket may be loose and letting it ground out and is why you have no fire to the plug. Just be shure that little bent wire isn't touching anything to ground it.

What should I start checking on my 2001 ford escape, It has 140,000 on it but ran great until 2 days ago now it turns over really strong but doesnt even try to but start. Thank you


If you haven't already, check the basics. Have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs, where applicable. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes?

1998 dodge 1500 5.9 will not start, Just installed plugs, cap and wires 2 days ago and it was running great. I ran an errand this morning ran great. But now I can't get it started. I know it has and is...


you can check for spark by plugging in one of your old sparkplugs to one of the spark plug cables and letting the sparkplug lay on the bare metal of the engine. Turn over engine to see if the spark plug is producing a spark. No spark? Check under the distributor cap, take a look at the rotor for damage.

1996 dodge caravan sport 3.3 no spark. please help!


have the fault codes read
never hold a plug or HT lead in your hand
in the old day cars the voltage was around 16,000volts so you got a kick
todays cars are around 65,000volts so if you are not in perfect health, heart wise , the shock could cause severe heart problems

2000 chrysler concorde no spark on #2 cylinder


If it ran good prior to spark plug replacement, then yes, I'd be looking real close at the plug wire to that particular spark plug. Perhaps it pulled apart inside boot upon removal. It may even be an indication that they are all getting weak, and time to think about a new set if it's originals.
