Cylinder 2 misfire and low fuel detected again and again seems there are issues with minis and this problem? I am reading thru other posts is there any quick fix?


Usually the mystery misfire on a single cylinder is a bad distributor wire. It can sometimes be seen arcing to ground at night & sometimes you can see a small pin head sized discoloration on the wire. It could also be oil around a spark plug needing the surrounding rubber seals replaced. Take it apart & figure it out. Good luck

Ignition issues


Trying to diagnose others work can be difficult but have done it many times. First I need to know basically at this point if you are getting power to the dark green & orange wire at each injector as well as the dark green and orange wire at the coil itself. If you have an ohm meter check to see if you are getttting continuity from that wire at the coil as to any of those wires (dark green and orange) at any of the injectors. Below is a picture of some relays under the hood. The one with the red arrow is the auto shutdown relay which will cause no power to all those dark green and orange wires. You may still have fuel prssure but this will shut down power to the injectors as well as power at that wire to the coil. The other relays that have the x out mark are needed but the one with the yellow arrow is the A/C clutch relay. I'm not 100 percent sure so check the numbers to see if they match. If they do swap those 2 out to see if it may be a relay issue. This is what I would start at first. Start from point "A" the basics (this test) and go on to the next step. There are fuse links as well but lets start here. Feel free to email me directly for any other tests if needed at csautomotivecars@att.net and I will be happy to try and help. No there won't be a cost to you but do remind me of what's been done so far as well as the model and engine size. Hope it's something this simple for you...

Engine will turn over but will not start We checked the red button in the trunk to the fuel pump and it still won't start


First you have to determine weather you have a FUEL problem or (ELECTRICAL)Spark problem ??

Pull the coil wire off or a easy to get to spark plug wire, Lay it close to were you pulled it off of (Do not hold or touch you may get SHOCKED) and crank motor (need two people) look and listen for a spark, if you see or here a spark, then go to next step which will be to check for Fuel (gas). Be very careful when checking fuel, as most lines are under pressure and may cause bodily harm such as BURNS to EYES and SKIN!! Loosen or pull the inlet fuel line off and put rag over line. Some fuel injected vehicles have a fuel rail the has a valve that looks like a tire valve. Put a rag over this valve and push it in with a small screw driver and have someone crank motor a couple of times to see if fuel is coming out.

If NO Spark---Could be a lot of things Points (older vehicles) Modules, Coils, Crank Sensors, ECT......

If NO Fuel---- Could be Clogged fuel filter, Fuel Pump, Fuel pump Relay, Fuse, ECT..........

Hope this helps you ??

Turns over hard, acting like it want to start, plugs have gas on them a little, but it still wont start , it's an 88 LeSabre Limited with the 3800


If the plugs themselves are wet the whole sparking process won't work; the plugs must be dry basically.
Here's what you should try: remove all of the spark plugs and let the whole thing sit open to dry/air out over night.
Or, the thing I've heard from crazy people... remove the plugs and flash the plugs and plug-holes over a few times with a propane torch(be sure to get the plug wires out of the way). Be prepared for fire coming from the plug holes, burn off all that gas from the plugs and from inside the holes.
At this point you shouldn't need to let things sit open since everything burned up... re-insert and tighten up your plugs, hook the wires back up & give it a go.
Another issue encountered, and although it didn't prevent the vehicle from starting, it did cause issues, was that we had a cracked plug. Either move the vehicle into a dark building, or wait for it to get dark outside, and open the hood up. While trying to start, see if you can identify dancing arc's or flashes coming from under the hood... to assist in making things more obvious people suggest spraying water from a misting sprayer over the plug wires(those can potentially fail causing electricity to arc from them as well). Any arc that happens outside of the cylinder is robbing your vehicle of spark/firing power.

Also, as a visual check for spark... remove one plug from a hole and hook its wire to it. Touch the threads of the plug to a bare metal part on the engine and have someone else try to start the car... you should be able to see it sparking. And don't worry, the open cylinder doesn't put out enough gas/fumes to cause an explosion in the few seconds it takes to perform the spark inspection.
If you notice that the plug isn't sparking, make sure that you're grounded to the vehicle and try again. If you cannot get spark at all, your problem is electrical and that will require a more technical approach: cap, rotor, coil, igniter, fuses - somewhere in there.
I hope that turns out well for you.

Runs like ****, backfires and chugs, no power


Several possibles: Plug wires arcing (run engine in a very dark area and open hood to see is there is arcing) Bad coil (same test look for arcing sometimes you can hear spark jumping) Distributor cap arcing inside or outside ( remove cap and inspect for carbon tracks inside cap). Module inside distributor bad (not too expensive to replace). Lean toward wires or coil.

I have abmw 3 series 1996 parked it last night perfectly ok this morning it wont start the engine turns over very quick as normal could it be because its damp and cold outside what do you suggest?


I would replace Distributor Cap & Rotor; and especially all Ignition Wires (aka: spark plug wires) When it is damp outside, old and possibly cracked wires is the leading cause of engines not starting due to wires arcing (throwing sparks to other parts of the engine) and causes no spark where it is really needed and that is at your spark plugs so the engine will start.

1994 Land Rover Discovery is not running on all 8 cylinders.


there are 3 things needed for combustion fuel, compression, and spark. if you are missing any one of these you will have a misfire. you can check spark easily by pulling off a wire and making sure it arcs (make sure you are not touching the vehicle while touching the wire or you will get shocked, not enough to kill you, but is painful). to check fuel you can use propane and SLOWLY!!!! open to the intake and if the injector is stopped up it will smooth out (because it will start running on the propane instead of the gas in the car). if you open the propane too quickly the car will stall. the propane almost always works, but i have had a couple of times it didn't. to check compression you would need a compression gauge, compare readings from cylinders, if one is considerably lower than the others you have a valve train or more serious issue.

In the trunk of the car there is a fuel pump reset switch. it will be behind the cover on the wheel well it should be on the drivers side. look for that and try to reset it.... when the wire arced it may have thrown the switch.
