Question about 2003 BMW R 1200 C Avantgarde

1 Answer

FIRING I was wondering what the best way to check and make sure all four of my cylinders are firing. A friend of mine thinks that one of them is not. What he did was spit on each of the four pipes of the manifold. Laughing One of them DID seem less hot then the others. This is referring to the same bike as my other thread. 94 Yamaha YZF600R. Thanks.

You could use a spark plug put it in place of the spark plug there on your s.p wire. Or, you could just unscrew the plug from the engine, but plugged into the wire and crank it over

I have a 2003 Ford Escape with the Duratec engine in it. I just had to replace the engine and had it put in by a friend of mine that is a mechanic. It wouldn't rev up past 1500 to 2000 so I assumed the...

Disconnect the front cat and leave it off then start the engine and see if it will rev good if it does then the other cats are plugged if it doesnt rev good check the ignition wiring for proper firing order i have encountered vehicles with two wires out of order and made the cat glow red so make sure they are in the proper firing order let me know how this turns out thanks.

Hard to start throttle has to be max to start then when you let go it dies

Sounds like fuel delivery, check throttle bodies for obstructions and make sure each injector is firing also check to make sure all four cylinders are firing,(you will hear it suffer when it does fire wide open ) those early R6's are known for having ignition coils go bad.

Need help replacing wires on dist cap 1987 4 cyl Trooper

Firing order is stamped on the block intake manifold or label. 4 cyl are typically 1324

From the web:
The firing order for four cylinder engines where the cylinders are in-line is 1243 or 1342.
Those are the only two possibilities I've ever found for inline four cylinder engines. In practice, it's almost always 1342, except for Ford engines which are 1243.

Take one off at a time and replace it

Do not run the wires parallel (side-by-side) for more than 6". Cross them over each other wavy-like if needed. This will prevent crossfire.

Replace Points, Plugs, Condenser, Rotor and Cap too.

Good luck!
