    Thanks so much for your help it turned out to be the main fuse that goes to the coil

    Was the bike running and then stopped? Is there no spark at any of the four cylinders? If the engine quits when hot, but will restart after cooling, it sounds like a pulse generator. If the engine won't fire when when starting cold, check your battery and cables. Low battery voltage won't allow a good spark. Provide some more info please.

You can call them pulse generators or crank position sensors either way they are most likely the cause of your problem last I knew they are still available from Honda

My Yard works model 060-1603-6 suddenly quit starting. I've changed the spark plug, checked oil/gas, removed all dust materials but it doesn't seem to 'fire'. The spark plug was factory gaped.

disassemble carburetor, soak in solvent, check the float, needle and seat, replace if necessary,,,using compressed air blow out all vents etc in carb body,,should take care of problem

Kohler command 20 twin engine - no spark

If there's no spark, then either the spark plug has come into contact with gas, or the ignition coil is bad. Try either replacing the spark plugs, or removing the old ones and seeing if the tips are damp.

If replacing them doesn't work or the plugs are dry, then try replacing the ignition coil.

1998 Dodge 1500 Pickup out of time spark

I would begin by checking 2 things. You can loosen the gas line that to the engine and turn the key on and see if the fuel pump is pumping gas to the engine. If it does, I would remove a spark plug wire and check to see if you have any fire to the spark plugs. If it has fuel and fire. I would check my timing.

My poulan riding mower goes dead whether cutting or idling..already checked the gas tank,lines,filter,and carb for trash..all clean...what could be the problem?

Could be bad ignition system. Check for spark when it quits using a new spark plug. Why do you suspect the fuel system? Does the engine quit suddenly or sputter to a stop? Does the engine have to get hot before it will quit? Sudden stop is usually ignition loss whereas sputtering could be either fuel or spark loss. Safety switches--'rider present'--could possibly be a problem and cause ignition loss.

1998 15 hp evinrude suddenly quit

There are many possibilities. Bad fuel or oil ratio could have fouled plugs. Tank problems. Bad coil. Water pump failure. Check throttle under hood. You can test ignition by grounding plug wires and pulling engine over and see if spark jumps. Dead mans switch fell out?
