You need to see if you have spark. If you went through water, it could be messing with your wiring, coil, stator, etc. Pull the spark plug and see if it has spark. If not, you need to figure out why. Remember to make sure the spark plug base is grounded on the cylinder, or it won't fire anyways. Dry out the wiring the best you can, and you may need to take the stator cover off to make sure the stator's not grounded out from water. You can use alcohol to help dry it out faster, as long as you keep ignition sources away.

    You first need to see if you have spark. If you have spark, then your coil is working. The coil is attached to the opposite end of the spark plug wire than the spark plug. If you have no spark, you'll want to see if you have power going to the wire at the coil. If so, you have a bad coil or spark plug wire. If there's no power at the coil, you then want to trace the wire back to the CDI box, and see if there's inpulse there at the input wire. If not, then it's likely the stator, or a bad ignition or kill switch. This all depends on not having spark. If you have spark, you're then looking at a fuel delivery issue. Try dripping a few drops of gasoline in the engine at the spark plug hole, and try to fire it. If it fires, you know for certain that you have a hang-up in the carb.

  • Dustin May 04, 2010

    Ok, if you have spark, we need to figure out the fuel hangup. It may be flooded by now, so Let's start over this way. Spray a little starting fluid into the spark plug hole. Take the plug out, unhook it from the wire, and crank it a bit to push some of it out of the cylinder. Next, let it sit open for a while, or you can burn off the cylinder. If you decide to burn it out, make sure the gas is off, and your face is away from the spark plug hole. Then hold a flame, i.e. match, lighter, etc up to the spark plug hole. It will puff at you pretty well, and likely blow out the flame. Do it again until it won't touch. Now you can put the plug back in and try again to start it. If it won't start now, you need to look and see if you're getting gas to the carb. If you are, look into your carburetor and why it's not getting fuel to the cylinder.

Your stator or coil is wet or shorted

    On the side of the crank case there is a plug to unscrew, some have dipsticks, others just look to see if oil is at the bottom of the threads that plug screws.

    There should be another drain plug on the bottom

    The coil is what is attached to the spark plug wire. It is held in by 2 bolts and then the wiring harness.

  • Nate Stansfield
    Nate Stansfield May 02, 2010

    You can test power to coil with a voltmeter. You can also test spark by removing spark plug from cylinder, plug back into the plug wire only, lay the spark plug on engine head so the electrode (bottom of spark Plug) is laying about 1/4" away from a metal surface. Then try turning the bike motor over, while observing a spark. You should see a spark jump from plug to the metal sufrace. If no spark, then test power to coil with a voltmeter while trying and turning the motor over. If there is power to coil, then coil is bad and you will need to remove the wiring harness and 2 bolts to remove it.
    If there is no power to the coil, then the stator plate is bad. That is a little more tricky to remove as it sits inside the crank case. Just follow the coil wires inside to the stator plate. Then remove the bolts and washers that hold it in. and pulll it out carefully so it doesn't brake any wiring.

    Check the kill switch and fuel filter. Clean carb out as well. That is about all that is left.

  • Nate Stansfield
    Nate Stansfield May 04, 2010

    If it had a key switch, there wouldn't be any spark. Just thought about that. There would be a fuel filter between tank and the carb.
    The carb would have to be removed, then disassembled and soaked in solvent or parts cleaner for an hour or two the air dried.
    The carbs can get gummed up and won't start. A bottle of gumout may help as well.

My daughters 2007 Odyssey loses power in rain. It started when she went through a deep puddle coming from work at night. Now whenever there is rain it has little power.


Possible the trip throught the deep puddle soaked the alternatior when water got above the splash guard mounted on the under carrage suggest you check all of the electrical wiring amd relays to see if any are wet or are now exposed to the weather. Good luck. Fixes for deep puddle adventures can be difficult to find and fix.

Car; 97 Nissan 200sx manual transmission 1.6l 4 cylinder with no mods.. What happen; drover into puddle and car dies in puddle.. Pushed out of puddle then wouldn't start like no power dried off battery...


How deep was the puddle...? I'm almost thinking water got into distributor cap,or car's computer, perhaps Alternator,or some electrical part...just a guess,mind you.

My 1991 aerostar van died while i was driving it and now it will not start


My 89 all wheel drive Aerostar will do that too if I forget to put that liquid stuff in that round thingy.

But seriously how was it acting before it stopped running ? Was it sputtering and hesitating ? Had you driven thru any deep water puddles that could have splashed water onto the engine ? You did not mention if the motor turns over when you try to start it , in other words is the battery charged? So if you are sure you have plenty of gas and the engine is nice and dry, the engine turns over when you turn the key - but doesn't start - I would check to see what could have come loose in the engine compartment such as a wire or an obstruction like a plastic bag over the air intake.

Good luck !

Does the engine turn fully or not? If not the connecting rods are more than likely twisted to your pistons if he hit the deep puddle at a fast rate of speed. The pressure of the water would of passed through the engine's crack seal producing deadly effects to the engine
