You will need to take a look into the hood as this engine has suffered a battery short,as a short term fix,get a can of silacone oil spray and spray it over the electrics of the engine,you will find this will cure the problem if not then you havent sprayed all the wires keep going,adrian.

2005 skidoo 600 with sdi. Starts dies in a couple of seconds will not go into high idle pulled plugs and there wet.


Likely one of two things
1) Bad spark quality, bad plugs, incorrect gap etc.
2) Lack of spark to the plug

Get a spark tester, cheap and easy at the auto parts store, and start there

piston arm could be the big end or the little end. if the engine before was (loud) ticking then when engine is warm it stops then it can be this. when these go it can lock up the engine or kick back. also faulty or bent cam's or broken valves (bent as well)

Sounds like #2 is still missing. Misfires can be caused by an ignition problem, a fuel problem, or a mechanical problem where there is no compression in the cylinder.
Okay, you have changed the coil. Now try changing spark plugs and the spark plug wire-Swap #2 and #1 spark plugs and the plug wire too, and see if misfire follows now on #1. If it does, bad plug or bad plug wire. Of course you could just drop a new plug into #2 and see what happens. If no change, swap the plug wires and test again. If still misfiring, check the spark at end of plug wire-you need to see a blue snapping spark to know the ignition is working good on that #2.
If you have spark there, need to check if the injector is pulsing and spraying fuel into the cylinder. You might be able to feel the injector pulse if you hold a finger lightly on the injector while engine is running-should be a steady, rather rapid click feel to the injector. If not sure, have the injector circuit checked. You can buy an inexpensive "noid light" at auto parts stores, one that fits your injector circuit, plug it into #2 injector, and crank the car over or run the engine and watch the light-if working, the noid light will be blinking. This verifies the circuit is good. If the spark plug is wet with gas when pulled out, that would verify that injector is spraying fuel into the cylinder.
If still no help, have the compression checked in #2. Low compression from a valve problem or head gasket problem can cause misfires.
Good luck.

On passenger side, inside of cab there is a fuel inertia switch mounted on the firewall by where feet go. There is a button underneath, push it. This will reset switch. Truck should get fuel now and start. These switches get weak and if passenger kicks it truck will shut down. Will still turn over but not start.

See these items:-

The starter must have been bad due to the water.

Bad PCM or ignition coil.

Corroded battery cables.

See timing belt.

No spark can't start the car


With a no spark condition, it could be anything - from an ignition module failure - to a faulty sensor - or even a bad ECM.
Its best to at LEAST have the OBD codes read to determine if its something you can repair.
If you dont know what an OBD code is, it's probably best to have your vehicle repaired professionally :)

P.S. The spark plug is not likely bad - how did you check for spark without removing the plug??

Thanks

My 2004 hyundai sonata will not crank. It turns over but won't catch.


check to see if getting spark or fuel if no spark could be crank sensor or cam sensor have to check voltage out of wiring harness if low voltage ecm bad. Pull both coil wires off coil and have someone turn ignition no spark probably ecm. For fuel check number one plug see if wet and also listen when you turn key for fuel pump. If driving it just died on ya and battery went dead like know and you tried jumping or replacing battery.Still would not start ecm bad.

CAR CUT OFF WHEN DRIVING


Have u checked for spark? U can pull a plug wire off, install a plug in the wire (saves u from taking a plug out), place plug on metal surface, crank engine while someone watches for a spark. If no spark check coil and ignitor (inside distributor). If u have spark check to see if u have gas making it to plugs. Crank engine over (no more than 10 seconds, give it a 10 second rest, try again for 10 sec. etc, ) After doing this for several minutes, pull a plug and check it--it should be wet from gas. If the plug is dry, u aren't getting gas (change fuel filter, check fuel pump). countrycurt0
