Yamaha XVS 400 won't start. fuelpump is ok there is fuel to carburretor. There is spark at the plugs. Starter cranks ok. I am puzzled. Someone suggested blown head gasket, I see no evidence of this on

A leaking head gasket, will cause pressure in the cooling fluid on a water cooled motor even when you start. And with an air cooled motor, you can see and feel the bass coming out.
But there are more causes, like a wrong timing wrong saturation of the gas and more. Sometimes it is better to visit a repair shop.

My Kia Sephis keeps dying and wont start sometimes

That Engine fuse you are replacing is the engine fuse,The nearest ground that can short that out is the oxygen heater circuit of the catalytic convertor,it may be the oxygen sensor itself,but more than likely its the harness you will have to open the harness and inspect for a rub through wire

Test the battery by jumping from another vehicle. This engine has high compression and will act as described when the battery fails to produce adaquate cranking amps. If this solves it, replace the battery and ride on.

Went for a ride the other day my ktm 450 died couldnt get it too run brought it home checked valve clearances all ok cleaned carburettor out and jets all ok checked spark at plug all ok bike still wont...

the flat battery shouldnt cause the problem and you said it has spark at the plug, so that sort of eliminates electrical problems.
if the carb is clean and it has good fuel, its a bit tricky to diagnose.
perhaps a sheared flywheel key,
blocked fuel line( it might have a tiny filter in the tank on the ends of the fuel tap pick up tubes)
or short in the kill switch may let it spark sometimes)

Engine cranks. sparks but does not start. fuel pressure ok

Have you replaced the crank sensor? The crank sensor on top of the trans. bell housing does control the injector pulse through the ECM.
The sensor is a common problem with the Jeeps. Sometimes the sensor stops working when the engine is hot and will start again when it cools off and sometimes it dies from oil leaking on top of it or it just dies.

Car dies and battery light comes on.

Will it crank over when it won't start? When It dies check for spark at the sparkplugs if none change the ignition module. FaQ and BLOG
