Sounds like a bad plug. Replace with new one.

does the bike turn on .. like lights and all? does it role over but just wont fire? if lights and everything come on then it would be a tip over sensor. i had same prob, laid bike down going very slow... got it back up wouldnt start just rolled over if i rememeber right. turned the key of then back on and sensor had reset...... try disconnecting the battery for a few, then reconnect it and try it.

SOURCE: Engine smokes / Ignition coil wire repairable?

Just screw the cap onto the lead if it falls off cut about 6mm off the lead and try again, a standard socket for a plug of your size should fit be sure to use a proper plug socket
smoke from the front of the engine could be from the exhaust where they bolt to the head,
Get your self a good degreaser and wash down the engine then run up the bike and look for oil leak dont ride the bike as a little oil will go a long way and it will be harder to see where its leaking, usual suspects rocker cover gasket if the oil is high up,

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, test for the presence / absence of below described voltages using an analog / needle type voltmeter when starting the bike:

  • pulsating low AC voltage coming from the pickup coil;
  • pulsating voltage feeding the ignition coil.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

How do you test the ignition coil on 410r Ryobi tiller?


with a multimeter set on ohms resistance and in the coil wiring
you can also test by removing the plug , using a new plug connect the ht wire to the plug and ground the body of the plug onto metal of the engine-- problem
pull the cord fast and check for a spark across the plug gap
good blue spark --not a coil problem

check the air gap between the coil and the flywheel ( .005 to .010" gap) coils seldom fail and it generally the plug or switch wires that are at fault

What would cause my Troy Built Pony to suddenly stop


That sounds perfect. When the motor turns over, ten thousand (approximately) volts push a whole lot of electrons out to the end of that wire. If they don't have someplace better to go (through the spark plug, across the gap, and to a good ground), they just jump out anywhere they can (into your hand), and dash through you to ground (wherever else you're touching the machine.

The spark plug body (the big metal end) MUST MUST be touching the frame or the engine, or it won't spark - those electrons have noplace to go.

Did you get the right plug? Is it a good plug? Is it gapped correctly? If all true, and if the machine STILL won't start, then the problem doesn't appear to be an ignition problem.

I guess you could have the ignition analyzed on an oscilloscope. Maybe a tech could see something then.
I always heard the only gap was the spark plug gap-the rotor has no gap-are you sure you got the correct rotor? And does it touch the top distributor cap coil wire tower?

Let us know. It is a mystery worthy of a solution.

You will see a spark jump from the plug body to ground if it isn't tightly grounded to the engine. However a spark should also jump the gap in the plug at the same time. It can be difficult to check a plug this way because it tends to bounce around the place when pull starting the engine. You could try getting a bit of wire and clipping on end to the exhaust or fin on the engine with a crocodile clip, clothes peg or vice grips. The other end of the wire could be wrapped around the threads of the plug and held with a clip.

How to check if the spark plug fire


Hi there ,
Please remove your plug wire from plug. If you have removable cap of wire tip, just remove it. Then use the plier ( with good insulation) to hold your wire. Use non electrical conducting shoes. Then make a gap ( about 1 mm) between wire tips and metal body ( or engine ) of your bike. Short start your bike and see how the the wire tips spark the electricity to your bike. If it has nothing your coil or coil incoming power is fail. If your have blue spark, you have tip top condition of coil.
Best regards, vote please, Jay

Does the vehicle have coil on plug ignition or coilpack ? And it's not primary or secondary coil malfunctioning It's primary or secondary circuit . I'm assuming it has a coil pack because you say plug wires.
P0350 - Ignition Coil (Undetermined) Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction Each ignition primary circuit is continuously monitored. The test fails when the PCM does not receive a valid IDM pulse signal from the ignition module (integrated in the PCM).
  • Open or short in the Ignition START/RUN circuit.
  • Open coil driver circuit.
  • Coil driver circuit shorted to ground.
  • Damaged coil.
  • Damaged PCM.
  • Coil driver circuit shorted to VPWR.
P0351 - Ignition Coil A Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction See the description for DTC P0350. See the possible causes for DTC P0350.
Pull the spark plugs out an look at them , check the gap ,if too wide replace them . If the spark plug gap gets too worn ,the spark won't jump the gap. It will find the least resistance path to ground ,and it will do it inside the coil . Going from the secondary circuit back to the primary coil an to ground through the PCM - engine computer . The PCM has transistors inside that open an close the primary side to ground ,this builds up a magnetic field around the secondary inducing high voltage spark . Well this can short out the transistor inside the PCM . Most of the time that's what these type codes mean . The PCM would need to be replaced an programmed . This can also damage the catalytic converter. Your best bet , take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop.

2001 beetle 1.8T "No spark"


Never let the spark plug gap (between electrode and ground) exceed 5mm (0.20 in) when checking for spark, as the power output stage may be damaged. Always ground the plug on the engine when checking for sparks.

If there is no spark, visually ensure that the engine speed sensor plug is connected properly and that the speed sensor is secured into the mount in the cylinder block. If the above inspection reveals no obvious defects, then test the ignition coil output stage and ignition coils.

Next time if you want to see if electricity is leaking out the insulation, use water in a spray bottle and spray around the suspected area. You'll see it arching around the mist of water. You could also kill yourself, it's not similar to a stun gun which your body can tolerate.

How to replace sparl plugs on a Jeep Cherokee?


Hello, I hope this info helps...(subytech1)...REMOVAL
In this engine, each individual spark plug is located under each ignition coil.

  1. Prior to removing spark plug, spray compressed air around base ofignition coil at cylinder head. This will help prevent foreign materialfrom entering combustion chamber.
  2. On this engine each individual ignition coil must be removedto gain access to each spark plug. Refer to Ignition CoilRemoval/Installation.
  3. Check condition of coil O-ring and replace as necessary.
  1. Inspect spark plug condition. Refer to Spark Plug Conditions.
CLEANING
Theplugs may be cleaned using commercially available spark plug cleaningequipment. After cleaning, file center electrode flat with a smallpoint file or jewelers file before adjusting gap.

CAUTION: Never use a motorized wire wheel brush to clean sparkplugs. Metallic deposits will remain on spark plug insulator and willcause plug misfire.

ADJUSTMENT

Setting Spark Plug Gap - Typical
Check spark plug gap with a gap gauge tool. If the gap is not correct,adjust it by bending ground electrode. Never attempt to adjust gap bybending center electrode.

INSTALLATION

CAUTION: This engine is equipped with copper core groundelectrode spark plugs. They must be replaced with the same type/numberspark plug as the original. If another spark plug is substituted,pre-ignition will result.

Special care should be taken when installing spark plugs into cylinderhead spark plug wells. Be sure plugs do not drop into plug wells asground straps may be bent resulting in a change in plug gap, orelectrodes can be damaged.

Always tighten spark plugs to specified torque. Over tightening cancause distortion resulting in a change in spark plug gap or a crackedporcelain insulator.

  1. Start spark plug into cylinder head by hand to avoid cross threading.
  2. Tighten spark plugs to 27 Nm (20 ft. lbs.) torque.
  3. Before installing coil(s), check condition of coil O-ring andreplace as necessary. To aid in coil installation, apply silicone tocoil O-ring.
  4. Install ignition coil(s). Refer to Ignition Coil Removal/Installation.
