Cylinders 3 and 4 filling with gas


spark plugs ruined/fouled, spark plug wires ruined/fouled, if the cylinders have individual coil packs then ruined/ fouled. if there is gas that means that spark isnt happening. something to do with that situation.

Tip

Fast relief for fouled spark plugs


I have found that by pulling the spark plug cap part way off of a fouled spark plug, so that the spark has to jump about 1/4" from the electrical contact inside the plug cap, to the end of the spark plug has the effect of raising the voltage to the spark plug considerably. Usually it's enough to cause a fouled spark plug to begin functioning normally again. It doesn't work in every instance - but you've got nothing to lose by trying it.

Spark plugs fouling in less than a week !! please help


Hi, Hitmagedz and the usual suspects are:
1. Dirty air filter.
2. Fuel mixture too rich or enrichner/choke left out too long.
3. Faulty spark plug.
4. Incorrect spark plug heat range for the engine type or service.
5. Piston rings badly worn or broken.
6. Valve guides are badly worn and/or seals worn, crushed or have come off the valve guide and are pumping oil through it.
7. Spark plug cable weak or leaking check for spark jump in the dark.
8. Faulty ignition coil.
9. Low RPM nonaggressive riding style.

Scott, 95 GMC 5.7L keeps fouling plugs


Hi Dale,

Several factors can contribute to spark plug fouling:

- The air/fuel ratio may be too rich as a result of incorrect carburetor adjustment or a poorly performing fuel injection system.
- Worn piston rings or valve seals may allow too much oil to leak into the combustion chamber, leading to oil fouling.
- The ignition system may not be performing properly.
- Prolonged idling or continuous low-speed driving may keep the spark plug from reaching its optimum operating temperature. Using too cold a spark plug can lead to the same problem.
- A dirty air cleaner can create a too-rich condition which can lead to fouling.

Have each of the above checked and corrected.

Fuel, oil and carbon fouling can all be the result of different causes but, once a spark plug is fouled, it will not provide adequate voltage to the firing tip and that cylinder will not fire properly.

In many cases, the spark plug cannot be cleaned sufficiently to restore normal operation. Hence, I always recommend that a plug be replace, once it becomes fouled.

Cheers,

Scott

Can a fouled plug be cleaned and if with what product


It can be cleaned and you must use a sand blaster (by far the best way to clean them) that is just for spark plugs. Another method is to use a wire brush and carburetor spray cleaned. Below is a link to the spark plug sand blaster i mentioned.

The bike was running fine. now it will not start at all. Does not seem to be getting any spark


Fouling a spark plug with unleaded fuel and wet fouling a spark plug with ethanol fuel is more common than you would think. Take out the old plug. Test for spark with a new plug. Then put in the new plug.

Cyl#3&5 foul plugs 97 suburban good compression all cyl new cap rotor distributor wires plugs module


Fouling occurs when the spark plugs' firing tip becomes coated with excessive fuel, oil, or combustion deposits so that it is unable to produce a spark. A plug can become fouled from continuous low speed driving, improper spark plug heat range (too cold), improper timing (over-retarded), too rich an air/fuel ratio or an oil leak into the combustion chamber. A variety of self-cleaning features are designed into most plugs to reduce fouling.

Spark keeps fouling but no clue why


Are you losing gear oil.
When the crankshaft seal leaks, oil from the gearbox is sucked into the crankcase, and this can foul the plug.
Also check the plug gap, most guys set the gap too small. It should be 0,7mmto 0,8mm. The plug should be a B9 EG, or equivilant.
Now, you can also change the plug cap to a type that has a built in resistor, this also helps with plug life.
Note that 2 strokes use plugs way more than 4 strokes, and you should replace the plug every 15-20 hours to keep your riding pleasant.
Good Bike you have there
