    THANK YOU for all you have done so far.

  • johnnieherma Jun 02, 2010

    I called the used bike shop & they told me to bring in my coils so they could test them& when I was un hooking them I found that the #1 plug wire was kinda pulled loose from the plug housing. I finaly got it to pop loose & where the wire connects inside the housing was all nasty could that be part of the problem?

  • johnnieherma Jun 02, 2010

    Have it all apart so I can take coils down to make sure cause of how i was told to jump start it, THE WRONG WAY, plus its dark here in AZ so I'll wait tell I get them checked.

  • johnnieherma Jun 02, 2010

Check your coil pack sounds like your not getting power to the coil for spark to the plugs. There may be a fuse also.

    when i looked at coil pack there are 3 lpaces to mount it to the frame .The ones on the sides have rubber bushings & the one in the back is gone does it need to be in contact with the frame?

  • Roger Campbell

    well your definitly missing a mounting bolt that helps reduce vibration. That may be the whole cause of the coil going out. Test the coil by removing a plug wire. Holing the plug wire cranke the bike to see if you get a spark. DO NOT HOLT IT WITHOUT A GLOVE. put it on same bare metal and watch for a spark.

  • johnnieherma May 31, 2010

    couldent see a spark had screw driver in plug wire & next to frame cranked & no spark.

  • johnnieherma May 31, 2010

    I also just put in a used stator could that be it? I rode the bike 50 miles & had no problems,the next day I went 3 miles & it died.

  • johnnieherma May 31, 2010

    Do i needa rubberbushing on back mount of coil or just go strait to frame?

  • johnnieherma May 31, 2010

    Its my first bike & Im no mech Its a 98 ninja zx6r if that helps.

    Ok so there is your problem your not getting power to your coil or out from coil. Chances are its a ground or a loose connection, but it may very well be a bad coil.


    I also just put in a used stator could that be it? I rode the bike 50 miles & had no problems,the next day I went 3 miles & it died.
    No upon starting it is the Battery that starts the bike. You said its good. The stator just charges your system.

    Do i needa rubberbushing on back mount of coil or just go strait to frame?
    Yes get a rubber bushing to isolate the coil from the bikes frame and vibrations


    Its my first bike & Iam no mech Its a 98 ninja zx6r
    This is a great bike you just need to work the bugs out. Remember you need fuel, oxygen and fire to get it started. Sounds like your missing spark. Do you have a test light? If so you can check for 12VDC at the coil. That will determin if its the coil or a wire/connection issue.

  • johnnieherma May 31, 2010

    I must be a ****** cuz Im not sure I even know If I know what the coil looks like exactly. I thought it was the two round cylinder shapes, but looked one up on the parts page & its not the same.

  • Roger Campbell
    Roger Campbell May 31, 2010

    Look from your plug wires to the next componet. see if you have power to that. if you do then its that.

  • johnnieherma May 31, 2010

    the hot goes from batt to a small box 2 inch by 2 inch that has a fuse & fuseis good & i got power to box , neg goes to under tank & the small cylinder things on the bracket.

  • johnnieherma May 31, 2010

    never mind i cant follow directions i have to do it rite this time.

  • johnnieherma May 31, 2010

    ok the PLUG wires go to the two grey cylinders & yes i got power to them.Does a bike have two coils?

  • Roger Campbell
    Roger Campbell Jun 01, 2010

    ok yes it has 2 coils. ok so now we know it has power to the coils. BUT no spark from the coils. Thats one of 2 things. You have bad coils( find it hard to belive both are bad) or the electronic ingition sysytem is not giving a permissive to start. that could be a bad fuse or wire to the ingition module. Wow you not being mechanical make this harder. Ok so. try both coil wires. there should be a spark if there is power. do the spark check on both. do all the electronics work on the bike?

  • johnnieherma Jun 01, 2010

    All electric work, what is a spark check? & ya 15 years in prison makes it hard to be a mech.

  • Roger Campbell
    Roger Campbell Jun 01, 2010

    remove spark plugs on both cylinders. put plug in spark plug wires and check and see if ither cylinder gets a spark. There is also a control wire that tells the coils when to spark from the ingnition module. If thats out none of this will work.

  • johnnieherma Jun 01, 2010

Car dies when slowing down

Sounds like #2 is still missing. Misfires can be caused by an ignition problem, a fuel problem, or a mechanical problem where there is no compression in the cylinder.
Okay, you have changed the coil. Now try changing spark plugs and the spark plug wire-Swap #2 and #1 spark plugs and the plug wire too, and see if misfire follows now on #1. If it does, bad plug or bad plug wire. Of course you could just drop a new plug into #2 and see what happens. If no change, swap the plug wires and test again. If still misfiring, check the spark at end of plug wire-you need to see a blue snapping spark to know the ignition is working good on that #2.
If you have spark there, need to check if the injector is pulsing and spraying fuel into the cylinder. You might be able to feel the injector pulse if you hold a finger lightly on the injector while engine is running-should be a steady, rather rapid click feel to the injector. If not sure, have the injector circuit checked. You can buy an inexpensive "noid light" at auto parts stores, one that fits your injector circuit, plug it into #2 injector, and crank the car over or run the engine and watch the light-if working, the noid light will be blinking. This verifies the circuit is good. If the spark plug is wet with gas when pulled out, that would verify that injector is spraying fuel into the cylinder.
If still no help, have the compression checked in #2. Low compression from a valve problem or head gasket problem can cause misfires.
Good luck.

Almera wont start


Even a relativly new battery can develope a bad or dead cell. Does the engine spin over when ignition is attempted? Easiest way to check this is to load test the battery. Any major auto parts dealer( Advance, Autozone, NAPA, Oriellys,etc.) can test this at no charge. Also use a voltmeter to test the alternator output. Most alternators put out between 13.5-13.8 volts at the battery. A faulty alternator can cause the engines electrical system to pull voltage from the battery until it (Battery)gets down to around 10 volts at which time the voltage is to low to support the needs of the system and the vehicle simply cuts off and will not restart as described in the first part of your post. Hope this helps.

Check the wires coming off the altenator. They vibrate and break while engine is running. The insulation will still be intact, so gently pull each wire to see if one stretches. If it does, strip and splice the wire. Don't pull the wires out of the connector end, hold wire at connector with one hand, and 6 to 8 inches up with the other hand. I have fixed two vehicles with this.

Car ran fine until I pulled into driveway. After I turned off ignition it wouldnt start again.


Have the battery tested and clean the battery cables. Just because it reads 12 volts doesn't mean it can supply power under a load.. Autozone and others test batteries for free

Why wont my pt cruser start it died will turn over


It sounds like you might have multiple problems. First you need the car with a starring system that will start the car. If your battery goes dead right away, first check your battery, charge it up and test it. Or put a different battery in the car to test it. You also may have a problem with your charging system so check that too. Once the car will crank fast without slowing down you should be able to start the engine. If this is not the case, poor little gas down the throttle body or intake manifold. Now if it starts and dies out you probably have a fuel problem. Check for fuel pressure on your fuel rail first. Then check fuel pump and relays. Now if the car did not start, check for spark. If spark seems to be good checked the timing belt or timing chain. Good luck.

Dirt bike quits running when slowing down.


I'd definately clean the gas tank out & blow the screen out with air. Replace or install a fuel filter,drain the carb(s) & remove the bowl to clean that. For the starter I'd take it off & clean it & the connections real good & try again. If that doesn't work get a test light & check if it gets power to the solenoid on top when trying to crank. If it lights & doesn't crank,you need a starter.

Sounds like you have a loose connection on a battery cable. loosen the bolt and pull off each end and clean, then replace. When you clean them, make sure you get down to clean metal.

I have a 2008 ford fusion and the battery keeps dieing because theres a draw somewhere but i have no idea where to begin looking. this is the 3rd battery in 3 months


wow 3 batteries in 3 months???? undo the positive battery cable & connect a test light in between the + cable & the + battery. the light will go on if there is a draw, start pulling the fuses out one at a time until the light goes out then you know what circuit the problem is on. make sure you take the interior light out as the door being open will cause the test light to go on. This is called a parasidic loss..
