Wont start getting weak orange spark

Head light does not come on until you cross jump silinoide I know that silniode is bad but it has'nt blown any fuses could igniter be bad I have no fire coming from coils my bike was running fine shut it down for 3 hours. went to start it and it blew the carb to intake hose off the left side. I changed the plugs and it started fine a little rough then just died cranked on it again for 1 1/2 min then changed the other two plugs it started and ran a little rough, it ran for 5 min then quit no sputtering just quit. tried to restart it and it just spins over wont start. so i put the plug to the head and cranked it and the spark was weak and orange could it be the coil and how can I test it

Hi, Kinwin and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test, your battery may show 12.5 volts but has little or zero amps and must be replaced.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting, leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or CDI or electronic control module.
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

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: 92 honda cb 750, oil light will not go out, bike won't start

Look around the engine oil drain plug and fill area and see if there is an electric sending unit( small plug with a prong for a wire) that is screwed into the engine if so check to see if its unplugged / could be a low oil cut off switch that kills all power to the ignition if the oil is to low ( or the wire is unplugged)

Wont pull a hill only get up to 20 mi.


That could be a number of issues, lets start with the most common:
1. bad gas or plugged fuel filter
2. needs a tune up
3 clogged catalytic converter
4. weak or leaking spark plug wires
5. weak coil
6. blown head gasket. check your oil and anti-freeze, if they look like chocolate milk
7. If your check engine light is on, take it to a local auto zone or advance auto, they will read your vehicles codes for free and tell you if a sensor is bad!

F-250 switch wont start


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

I have a 1995 honda civc ex V-Tec. And I'm geting water on my spark plugs. is that a blown head gasget, or a craked block or head. there is no water in the oil. thats fine. one's I get it started...


If there is water on 2 adjacent plugs, there's a good chance that it's a blown head gasket. Check the compression and if 2 adjacent cylinders have low compression, that would be another indicator of a bad head gasket. Unfortunately, you wont know for certain until it is disassembled.
