Probably a dead sparkplug. There can be many causes but start by checking the starter valve plungers (chokes) on the carburetors. Return springs inside the metal elbow get corroded. Rubber face of the plunger gets worn. The engine then runs with one carb in a permanent choke condition and the rich fuel mix destroys the sparkplug.

Hi,if you have a good spark on number five cylinder and you have a good spark on the sparkplug then I think you should do a compression test and see if the compression is down on that cylinder,if so could be damidged valve seats..

Why does my 1997 honda accord have oil around the spark plugs?


You have to replace the Valve cover gasket. Inside the spark plug hole, midway down is a gasket, every spark plug hole has them, you cant see it because its, well a gasket pressed against two very tight suface every spark plug hole, When these leak they fil up the sprkplug cavity, as you know. Go to a parts store, spend $30 dollars on a VALVE COVER GASKET SET. If reparied properly wiil be a 100% fix. If it's a 4 cylinder honda,, a monkey with downs syndrom could do this in five minutes. V6 accord, save yourself the time, grief and heart ache, and take it to a Professional.

Ford five hundred running on 5 cylinders


the code p 0302 refers to no 2 cylinder misfiring===causes --engine mechanical fault ---wiring--ignition / fuel system---injector--ECT/Maf sensor ---ECM
you state that the engine runs normally for several seconds so I would eliminate a mechanical fault at this stage
most misfires are from faulty injectors so reposition the injector to another cylinder and see if the miss moves along as well
if it doesn't move but stays at no 2 cylinder , then it could be a problem ECM
if you can get a substitute ECM of known good performance , swap it out and see if that fixes the fault

Whats the correct way 2 perform a compression test on a chevy v8 small block


FIRST OF ALL YOU NEED TO RUN ENGINE FEW MINUTES DONT GET IT TOO HOT. TURN OFF ENGINE. THEN PUT ON SAFETY GLASSES. USE COMPRESS AIR BLOW DEBRI AWAY FROM SPARKS PLUGS.TO KEEP FROM GETTING INTO CYLINDERS.DISABLE YOUR SPARK IGNITION.AND DISABLE FUEL PUMP.BY REMOVING FUSE.NUMBER AND TAG SPARK PLUG WIRES.REMOVE ALL PLUG WIRES AND SPARK PLUGS.BESURE YOU NUMBER THEM AND TAG THEM SO THEY GO BACK IN THE ORIGINAL PLACE.THEN GET COMPRESSION GAUGE TESTER SCREW IT IN SPARK PLUG HOLE TO CYLINDER 1 FIRST.TAKE YOUR FOOT PRESS ACCELERATOR PEDAL TO FLOOR.PUT KEY IN IGNITION SWITCH CRANK ENGINE AROUND A FIVE TURNS.THEN CHECK COMPRESSION ON GAUGE.IT SHOULD BE NO LOWER THAN 100 PSI.IF SO SQUIRT SOME OIL IN THAT CYLINDER. IF COMPRESSION INCREASES.THAT CYLINDER HAS BAD RINGS IF OIL SQUIRT DONT INCREASE COMPRESSION. VALVES IS LEAKING. YOU DO ALL CYLINDER THE SAME.SCREW COMPRESSION IN PLUG HOLES.TURN ENGINE OVER 5 ROUNDS. WRITE DOWN ALL READINGS.

Four cylinder feels like it is only hitting on three

Microwave shuts off after running for five minutes


I'd be careful because you do not know what caused it to spark. How old is the microwave? Do you need a new one?
