You have a ground connection problem ? Use a wire round brush in the plug hole to clean it .

SOURCE: no spark 110cc engine wont start

Check the fuses. Next, check for spark but with a new spark plug. How good is the battery? If needed, add water to the battery cells enough to cover the top of the cell plates.Try a jump start from your car battery. Is the kill switch on? Check the operation of the ignition switch with a volt ohmmeter. You should be getting power into and out of the ignition switch.

If the bike doesn't start and run properly check the side stand kill switch. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. Broken or out of adjustment, it would kill the spark. Check for a broken wire at the switch or coupler. Get a service manual and check out the electrical section. Some bikes have a diode integrated into the turn signal relay. Try moving the kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it. If that doesn’t work, check out the relay.

Check the wiring harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center casing.

Please rate this answer. Thanks

SOURCE: honda cbr 600 wont start

hi, each lead has the specific number on it. if you do this correctly then they genrally give you an idea to where the sit in the coils( the way they bend :-) ) also i believe the coils are better off been attached to the frame once you are sure leads are in corect order and possitioned correctly in the coils.i just presumed the coils neaded earthing. make sure battery is pleny charged as a bad battery can just hinder. it is also very easy to flood the bike so just check the plugs again. if they are unusually wet then dry them off and try again . otherwise maybe try cleaning all electics.

hope this somehow helped

SOURCE: change spark plug

Your tool kit has a thin wall spark plug wrench with a grabber to change the plug. If you don't have a tool kit you can buy just the plug wrench at your local Honda dealer. The spark plugs are on top of the head . You may have to remove chrome carburetor covers or your lowers to gain access . Then pull plug caps, check to make sure there is no mud or collected dirt, if so clean out before proceeding. After you blow out junk (if there is any) take a piece of wire and make sure the drain holes are clear. Now remove the old spark plugs and replace with four new NGK DPR8EA-9 gapped to .035 in.

I got power to coil nothing comes out of coil


if you have power to the coil the only things that can be wrong are: -
1. the coil is duff.
2. The HT lead is broken.
3. the plug cap is duff, broken.

Remove plug cap and see if there is a spark from the wire core when the lead is placed near the engine/frame.

If it sparks OK replace the plug cap,. no spark means either the coil or the lead are duff. If you can replace the lead try testing again without the cap. Hope this helps.

First change spark plug. If not plug, check plug cap, unscrew it off lead and hold lead end to cyl head and crank. If it sparks, change cap. If not, check H.T coil, C.D.I. and stator coils.

Not getting spark


check the coil first with a spark plug tester. then go to the leads at your spark plugs if no spark at the coil change it. .if spark found at the coil but not at the leads at the spark plug. then check the distributor cap and the rotor arm clean the contacts then check the plugs smell them of fuel if that is found change the spark plugs.

Where can i find the ignitioncoil geo freze


Follow the spark plug leads. Where do they lead? If its to a black box, then thats your coil. If they lead to a round cap on the side of the engine, then that's the distributor. The distributor has an extra lead in it's centre which doesn't go to a spark plug. That's the one which leads to the coil and will give away it's position.

Good luck.

No coil spark 6 cylinder? 97 4wd jeep grand cherokee


Hi there:

Are you trying to change coil position? This could mean that one or more of the following has happened:
- Faulty spark plug or wire
- Faulty coil (pack)
- Faulty fuel injector

- Poor compression

- Defective computer


If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.



If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day

Have a 2000 ford winstar with check engine light code was ignition coil misfire. changed ignition coils, plugs & wires. reset code & code came back on still idle is rough?


Basically this means that the the car's computer has detected that not all of the engine's cylinders are firing properly.
A P0300 diagnostic code indicates a random or multiple misfire. If the last digit is a number other than zero, it corresponds to the cylinder number that is misfiring. A P0302 code, for example, would tell you cylinder number two is misfiring. Unfortunately, a P0300 doesn't tell you specifically which cylinder(s) is/are mis-firing, nor why.
SymptomsSymptoms may include:the engine may be harder to startthe engine may stumble / stumble, and/or hesitateother symptoms may also be presentCausesA code P0300 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Faulty spark plugs or wiresFaulty coil (pack)Faulty oxygen sensor(s)Faulty fuel injector(s)Burned exhaust valveFaulty catalytic converter(s)Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passagesFaulty camshaft position sensorDefective computerPossible SolutionsIf there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.

If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.
Random misfires that jump around from one cylinder to another (read: P030x codes) also will set a P0300 code. The underlying cause is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold or unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open.

Cant locate the spark plugs on vw golf 88 mk1..any ideas?


I'm assuming you have a petrol fuelled car, as diesels do not have spark plugs.

Find the distributor cap leading off the distributor - it should look a little like this: http://www.google.com/images?um=1&hl=en&safe=off&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official&biw=1920&bih=895&tbs=isch:1&aq=f&aqi=g8g-m1&oq=&q=distributor%20cap

there should be 5 leads trailing from the cap - the lead in the centre leads to the "coil", the other 4 leads go to the spark plugs. There should only be 4 as the Mk1 was only made as a 4 cylinder engine.

Pull off the leads (though not whilst the engine is running as you'll electrocute yourself) and the spark plugs will be revealed.

HI THATS ODD TO HAVE 3 SPARKING, AS THE IGNITION COILS ON THE OLD GS WERE 1COIL FOR 2 CYLINDERS IE 1&4 CYLINDERS USED 1 COIL AND 2&3 USED THE OTHER , SO IF YOU ARE GETTING A SPARK AT EITHER OF THESE THAT MEANS THE COIL IS WORKING, ON THE COIL THAT IS ONLY GIVING A SPARK AT 1 PLUG SWAP THE PLUG OVER AND SEE IF IT THEN SPARKS IN THE OTHER CAP THIS WILL ELIMINATE THE PLUG, IF THE PLUG THAT WAS SPARKING IN THE OTHER LEAD NO LONGER SPARKS IN THE OPPOSIT LEAD THEN OBSERVE THE LEAD REMOVE THE CAP AND EARTH THIS OUT WHILE YOU TURN OVER THE ENGINE, THIS WILL ELIMINATE THE CAP,

Cranks but will not start.


Ignition coil or distributor cap. Not knowing the Avenger I couldn't tell you where to find either but follow the HT leads from your plugs and you should find them. If you aren't getting a spark on any plug then the perp is your ignition coil and it'll need replacing, if you're getting a spark on some then it's the dist cap, check the contacts and give them a clean and see what happens. F.Y.I. the dist cap is the first thing back up the line from your plugs with all the HT leads going in, and the ignition coil is after the dist cap.
