I had the same problem with my Burgman 400,weak spark at the plug. Replaced the CDi did not help. In the end got a new coil off eBay (that fitted the 250 Burgman a lot cheaper) & the problem was cured.

I have a ford ranger 1986 ive replaced plugs,wires, coil, cap, rotor button and still i have a orange spark could it be the pickup coil


Color of spark is a kinda age-old test, but it doesnt necessarily mean anything. Some cars you will usually see orange during a cranking spark test because the resistance of the system and the coil windings reduces voltage below the "blue" spark level until voltage gets over 14v, which doesnt happen until the engine is running.

If the car runs at idle and rev, it is unlikely its the pickup coil. The pickup is the RPM sensor, pretty much it either works OK or works terribly/not at all (though sometimes they are funny, its rare). If it runs fine for awhile, then after 30 minutes it starts to cut out or stall, and when it cools it runs again, THAT is pickup coil type of failure, but not yellow spark. Pickup doesnt make spark or affect its quality in any way. It simply says WHEN to make spark. After it signals WHEN, the module and coil and source voltage determine how much is made.

If you still think you have low spark issues, id test it with a test plug. Its an adjustable or fixed gap spark plug you can buy at a parts house. You need minimum 25kv consistent spark from the coil.(30 is better). What that means is you hook a work from the cap to the spark tester, and with the engine running it will fire regular sparks and not skip any. If it does...spark is not your problem. Period. If it doesnt, then you start checking wires, resistance, voltage, etc.

2006 bmw/will not start but will turn over


sounds like no spark so check for spark at plugs if no spark check for low tension feed to coil/distributer if have low tension power which i would think you will then its a new coil pack/distributer if all these are ok then check for fuel to injection system ,remove a plug turn engine over and look/smell for fuel coming out of plug port let me know how this goes

Jeep 3.7 cylenders 2 & 4 not firing


3.7 V6, mileage?

most likely the HV wires bad.

then bad coil pack.

did you check spark directly at the coil pack?

i use 2 known good HV wires to do that and 2 good test spark plugs.

both plugs grounded to engine (shell)

that is how you test any wasted spark coil pack. 3 coil pack.

if that fails the FSM shows, unplugging it and check the coil resistances. if wrong the pack is bad,

keep in mind the res. can read ok and coil be bad ,due to internal insulation break down (internal shorts)

if thats ok. the resistance , make sure the wires are not (primary)

to the coil (the low voltage connnector)

if that is ok, its mostly likely a bad coil, (pray not bad PCM)

if tool-less? start with cheap parts , work to expensive. (guessing)





now wasted spark 101.

if one line opens , both spark plugs die. no spark

the wasted spark is wired in SERIES. ( like Christmas lights)

the magic cuts cost of 6 coil\'s.

so if the HV wires are say, cheap , carbon wire and open

you lose, both spark plugs. use MAG wire and end this issues.

get some nice NGK mag wire or Bosch Mag wires.

you can see i hate carbon wire. for good causes.

(carbon string wire)

mag wires is real wire that is coil spun and is inductive. it

has the correct impedance but is not a resistor its and inductor.

and lasts the longest , and worth every penny.

Starts ok slight vibration almost like its missing plenty of spark at coil no power when driving, slight vibration


run fault codes and look for misfire and faulty injectors . Have a pressure test done on the fuel manifold as low pressure will result in your description.

What could I do to stop my lt1 from missfiring


Lets see coil pack, spark plug wire, spark plug, and if it is MFI maybe injector, or check injector pulse. If all those are ok, then check the compression in that cylinder, if it is low it will not fire right. Go through normal check out procedures to check each of these pull out the spark plugs, put them back on the end of the wire and check for spark. If these are ok the go on go the injector. If they are not try temporarly swapping spark plug wires with a different coil pack, if the problem follows the wire, then put on new wires. If it does not follow the wire, then the coil pack could be bad, or the signal going to it. If the spark is ok check to see if you have injector pulse signal going to injector. If it is ok replace injector. Hope this helps you.

Yardman xm3100 will not start. Original problem was a stone blocking the blower but the mechanism now spins freely. What is the turns adjustment for the needle valve?


Turn the needles clockwise until they bottom out. Do not tighten them. Then back out (turn them counter clockwise) the needles to 1 1/4 turns. Start the unit, then adjust the low speed screw (indicated by an "L" on the carb body) until the unit idles well. Then run unit up to max speed and adjust the high speed screw (indicated by an "H" on the carb body) and adjust. You are not looking for the highest speed possible, that indicates an lean mixture which will burn up your engine. You want the engine to lope with a slightly rich mixture. Adjust the high speed screw until the unit runs well at max throttle, but you want it to lope (slow a bit and then catch up a bit at regular intervals) a bit. You may have to go back and tweak the low speed adjustment after setting the high speed.

You should also make sure you have spark. If not, check your on-of switch, and check to make sure the small wires coming off the side of the coil (not the main lead that goes to the spark plug) are not grounding out somewhere. Check the gap between the coil and the flywheel; it should be .010-.012 of an inch. If that is OK, then pull the smaller wires off the coil and then test again for spark. If you have no spark with the small wires disconnected, replace the coil.

To check the spark, pull the spark plug out of the head (turn it counterclockwise), connect the spark plug wire to the spark plug, touch the threads of the spark plus to a metal part of the engine and plug the rope; you should be able to see a spark if there is one. Do not worry about the color of the spark. On modern engines, the coils is solid state and the spark color is not a problem.

If those things a re OK, then check your fuel lines and the fuel and air filters. If that is not the problem, more that likely you need to clean and rebuild the carb. 90% of the problems we have experienced with small engines are fuel related and NOT spark related. We clean and rebuild more carbs that we do anything else.

I GOT NO FIRE ON THE PLUGS


The spark gets power to spark from coil packs.If the connection between coil pack to spark plug is weak or loose then it will not fire.But if the coil pack as well as the connection between coil pack to spark plugs checked ok then its faulty or dirty spark plugs.Clean the spark plugs with the carb cleaner liquid and let it completely dry.Then check.Also check the voltage between coil pack to spark plugs.If both checked out ok then the other possibility can be weak crank shaft sensor. Thanks.Helpmech.

I was driving and it just died,we now found we do not have any spark on driver side,can you tell me what it may be,or what we should try to fit it.it will not turn over.Thank you sherry


No spark.This is indication of faulty spark plugs.But spark plugs get power to spark from coil pack. So get the connection between coil pack to spark plugs checked.If it checked out ok then its faulty spark plugs that has to be replaced,but if coil pack has no power then its faulty coil pack that has to be replaced.But if coil pack and spark plugs both checked out ok then this problem is fuel related problem.In this case the fuel pressure needs to be checked.The fuel pressure can be easily checked at any local car garage.If its low then its faulty fuel pump as well as clogged fuel filter,which has to be replaced. The voltage for spark plugs and coil pack in voltmeter will show 12 volts.Its a 12 volt part.If there is no or low volt then there is problem with the part. ------------------ Keep updated with any more queries.Thanks.

I have no spark at plugs coil has good spark


If you have spark at the coil then you have a good coil. You can't measure Ohm at a spark plug since it is alway open at the gap. But you can OHM measure a spark plug wire at both end. If you have nothing mean your wire is bad. You can swap one more wire to confirm a bad wire. If your wire is not bad then I recommend to replace both rotor and distributor cap. Good luck in locating the problem.

Wont start, weak spark on the spark plugs


You should check your leads. if they are silicone a slight bend can break them and you will have a very weak spark. Also check the gap on the spark plugs, if the gap is too small there wont be a very good spark. If those are all ok check the coil pack(s), they may need replacing.
