If the spark plug head covers with black thick carbon, then there is a possibility of misfires. Clean the spark plug and start it.
There can also be an improper fuel air mixture which causes carbon deposits on the spark plug. Fuel air mixture should be properly adjusted.

The sound and the high fuel consumption are all related. there are many things that might be wrong. it could be the fuel quality the carburettor air filter spark plug or even an elecrtical problem. but since you had the bike serviced but you are still experiencing problems i would try cleaning the spark plug. and when you fit the sparklug back, check wheter the wire going to the sparkplug is in perfect order. then put the bike in neutral, put in on the main stand, start it and check the big wire going to the sparkplug. listen if you can detect any noise in that area. if you hear a tik - tik sound, then there is a elecrtical leak. you should be able to repair that by yourself if not a normal service station would do. however if thats not the problem, then you should bring the bike to another service station,,,

2000 Z3 2.0 Sudden onset misfiring with traction control light and EML light coming on. Happened as went over slight bump and noticed an odd smell ?burning which lasted a minute or so. Car starts fine but...


It sounds like you have a loose connection or wire somewhere, becuase you stated it started happening after you hit a bump which the jolt would cause movement in a component or wire causing some type of short or mis-connection to happen. I would check all wires, cables for loose or corroded connections, loose ground wires, especially battery and starter connections and tighten accordingly.

P0300 - (random misfire) only happens when the engine is cold (hasn't been run). I erase the code and restart the engine and the misfire does not happen again. It can be fine all the while the engine is...


First start by making sure that the spark plugs are AC Delco plugs or other WILL trigger a P0300. If these are good, the next thing to check is the coolant temperature sensor(ECT). If this is problematic, it will cause too much fuel to be delivered and misfires to occur on all cylinders.

Frequent Misfires in Hero Honda Passion


It is due to tuning of corborator. I had this problum for 4 months Please open your tool kit, you will find a rubbr gasket remove the same, there is a flat screw.

start your bilke, start slightly looseng the screw mm by mm, at one point the bike will accelerate more automatically, raise once or twice confirm there are no delay in raising when you increse the trottle. if so, tighten little. and take the smell from your exhaust. confirm there are no petrol smell along with smooke.

Hope this will solve your problum. you may experiance little week in inetial pick up but it will increase the milage too........

Engine misfire and cutting out when running at normal engine temp


Make sure your fuel tank vent is not plugged. To see if this is the problem, the next time the bike starts acting up, stop and open the fuel tank. If you hear a whoosh of air being sucked in you know your vent is plugged.

The C8HA is still available, it is NGK stock number 2168.
Good luck.

Hi dude,
99 % this & low milege is due to wrong Air to Fuel ratio.
This can be solved very easily.What you need is only a small screw driver.

Open the black tool box in the right side. Remove a small rubber bush thats there. Inside you can see a small flat screw. that controls the amount of fuel injected to the engine. Turn the thing clockwise a round or two & go for a small drive. Feel the difference & stop when you are satisfied. if your engine knocks, thats even bad. Dont overdo.

NB : This will reduce pickup
