HI WAS THE ENGINE YOU REPLACED FITTED WITH THE GENERATOR ,OR HAVE YOU REMOVED THE 1 FROM YOUR OLD ENGINE, PRESUMNG YOU USED YOUR OLD 1 WHICH YOU KNOW WORKED BEFORE YOU REPLACED YOUR ENGINE, I WOULD SUGGEST YOU GO OVER YOUR CONECTIONS CHECKING THEY ARE ALL CORRECT, POSS, SIDE STAND SWITCH FAULTY: IS YOUR STAND UP IN THE HOME POSITION? IS THE ENGINE CUT OFF SWITCH IN THE CORRECT POSITION? DO YOU HAVE THE DRIVE CHAIN FITTED, IF NOT IS THE BIKE OUT OF GEAR WITH THE SIDE STAND UP THIS COULD CAUSE LOSS OF SPARK IF THE STAND IS DOWN WITH THE CHAIN OFF, THESE ARE A FEW SIMPLE CHECKS, THINK SIMPLE SOME PEOPLE THINK COMPLICATED REMEMBER IT SPARKED AND RUN BEFORE, WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF YOU REPLACED GENERATOR WITH THE ENGINE.

Need to replace sparkplugs on 2002 ford escape


well replace spark plugs is not a hard job,when replacing spark plugs, good time to replace plug wires also.you need to replace one spark plug at a time so you wont mix up firing order. you need a spark socket, torque wrench, 3/8 ratchet wrench, 3/8 short and long extensions,you need a spark plug gap gauge.spark plug gap for 2.0 engine 0.051 the 3.0 engine spark plug gap is 0.052 - 0.056. just follow spark plug wires they will lead you to the spark plugs.warning wait until engine cool down first because removing spark plugs from hot engine could damaged the aluminum heads,use compressed to blow away debris before removing spark plugs keep debris falling into the cylinders.wear safety glasses if you use compress air and use small amount anti seize compound to the spark plug threads.good idea slip a short length rubber hose over the end of spark plug to use as a tool thread it into place.reason i use piece vacuum hose it will grip the spark plug enough to turn it, but will start to slip if the plug begin to cross thread.when installing spark plug, it should turn at least few times if spark plug start tighten before 1/4 turn thread cross threading need to back off start over dont keep turning you will stripped spark plugs threads in the head also damage spark plug threads, so be careful, good luck with job.

Will not start


THE BLOWERVAC COULD HAVE GAS PROBLEM OR A NO SPARK TO SPARK PLUG PROBLEM. TO DETERMINE THE SPARK PROBLEM FIRST, REMOVE THE SPARK PLUG, LOOK AT THE END OF THE SPARK PLUG (ENGINE END) TO SEE IF IT IS DRY OR WET WITH GAS, THEN RE-ATTACH THE SPARK WIRE WHILE THE SPARK PLUG IS LAYING LOOSE AND PULL THE ROPE TO TURN THE ENGINE AND LOOK TO SEE IF THERE IS SPARK OCCURING AT THE SPARK PLUG. IF THERE IS SPARK PRESENT, YOU HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH SPARK. REPLACE THE PLUG AND WIRE. IF NO SPARK CHECK YOUR WIRE LEADING TO THE SPARK PLUG TO MAKE SURE IT HAS AN ELECTRICAL CONNECTION AT BOTH ENDS, SPARK PLUG END AND ENGINE END. IF LOOSE FIX THE CONNECTION THEN RE-TRY THE SPARK/ENGINE TURN OVER BY ROPE METHOD AGAIN TO SEE THEN IF YOU HAVE SPARK. IF THEN YOU DO HAVE SPARK, RE-ATTACH SPARK PLUG TO THE ENGINE AND RE-ATTACH SPARK PLUG WIRE TO THE SPARK PLUG AND TRY THEN TO START THE ENGINE.
IF THERE WAS A WET PLUG WHEN YOU FIRST REMOVED THE SPARK PLUG AND YOU NOW HAVE SPARK AT THE SPARK PLUG, YOUR ENGINE SHOULD START.
IF IT STILL WILL NOT START AFTER THE SPARK CHECK, I WOULD REPLACE THE SPARK PLUG WITH A NEW ONE.
IF THEN IT WILL NOT START, THEN REMOVE THE SPARK PLUG AGAIN AND POUR A SMALL AMOUNT OF GAS INTO THE ENGINE SPARK PLUG HOLE. A PINT PLASTIC OIL CAP FULL OF GAS IS ENOUGH, DO NOT OVER USE MORE THEN THAT.
THE RE-ATTACH YOUR SPARK PLUG AND SPARK PLUG WIRE AND TRY STARTING THE ENGINE AGAIN. IT MAY TAKE SEVERAL PULLS TO GET THE EXTRA GAS IN THE SPARK HOLE TO BE USED UP BEFORE YOU START TO HEAR IT RUN ALITTLE AND FIRE NOW AND THEN.
IT SHOULD START THEN.
IF THEN IT DOES NOT START, YU HAVE USED UP THE GAS YOU PUT INTO THE ENGINE BY THE CAP FULL METHOD AND IT IS NOT GETTING GAS BY THE GAS TANK SUPPLY.
THIS MEANS THEN YOU HAVE AN IN LINE GAS LINE FILTER THAT IS PLUGGED UP OR YOUR GAS MAY BE OLD IN THE GAS TANK. IF GAS IS NOT OLD AND FILTER IS NOT PLUGGED, THEN YOU NEED TO REMOVE THE GAS LINE LEADING TO THE ENGINE CARBURATOR TO SEE IF IT WILL FLOW FROM THE GAS TANK OUT THE GAS LINE SUPPLY HOSE. IF IT DOES FLOW FREELY, THEN YOU DO NOT HAVE A GAS SUPPLY PROBLEM,
AS LONG AS YOUR GAS IS NOT OLD GAS. OLD GAS WILL GO BAD IN TIME. I'D REPLACE THE GAS WITH NEW AND TRY AGAIN.
IF THIS DOES NOT WORK, THEN ITS CARBURATION CLEAN UP TIME.
IT WILL NEED TO BE REMOVED FROM THE ENGINE BY A FEW BOLTS, HOSE'S REMOVED AND TAKEN APART AND CLEANED. TARNISH FROM GAS AND OIL WILL BLOCK THE CARBURATOR JETS AND VACCUM PUMP FROM WORKING PROPERLY. CLEAN AND REPLACE, TRY AGAIN TO START ENGINE.
MORE GAS IN SPARK PLUG HOLE TO GET GOING MAY BE ANOTHER ATEMPT AFTER CARBURATOR CLEAN UP.

Inspection

Inspect for the correct routing of the spark plug wires. Improper routing may cause cross-firing. Inspect each wire for any signs of cranks or splits in the wire. Inspect each plug wire boot for tearing, piercing, arcing, carbon tracking or a corroded terminal.
If there is any corrosion, carbon tracking or arcing indicated on a plug wire boot or terminal, both the plug wire and component it was connected to should be replaced.

How to replace spark plugs in a kia sorento


The 2006 KIA Sorento is a smaller SUV with a 3.5-liter V6 engine. This engine uses six spark plugs to run the engine properly. There will be three spark plugs on each side of the engine. All six spark plugs will need to be changed at the same time to ensure that all six are working equally. The spark plugs are in plain sight on the right and left side of the engine and have rubber wires connected to the top of each one.
  1. 1 Insert the edge of the spark-plug gapping tool under the meal arm in the center of the one of the new spark plugs and turn the gapper until the number .038 is in the center of the metal arm. Repeat this for all other new spark plugs.
  2. 2 Open the hood of the 2006 KIA Sorento and remove a rubber wire from one of the spark plugs. Use the ratchet and spark-plug socket to remove that spark plug from the engine.
  3. 3 Insert the new spark plug into the hole where the old plug was. Hand-tighten the new spark plug until you are certain it is seated properly, then tighten it further using the ratchet and spark-plug socket. Replace the rubber wire to the top of the new spark plug.
  4. 4 Repeat for all other new spark plugs. Once you have replaced all six spark plugs and replace the rubber wires to the tops of them, close the hood.

WHERE ARE THE SPARK PLUGS LOCATED ON MY 1999 PONTIAC GRAND AM


Hi. here's the procedure on how to replace your spark plugs. Spark plug location is in this procedure.

  • Park the car in cool, shady area and allow the engine to cool.
  • Step 2 Remove the parts of the Grand Am engine that hinder access to the spark plugs. For a 2.2 L engine, remove the ignition coil housing. For a 2.4 L engine, remove the bolts that hold the retaining ignition coil and disconnect the electrical connector. Pull the assembly straight up and away from the engine to remove it. For a 3.1 L engine, remove the air cleaner. For a 3.4 L engine, remove the windshield wiper module cover and rotate the engine for service access to the rear spark plugs.
  • Step 3 Locate the spark plug wire and grab it by the spark plug boot. Twist the boot in both directions and pull back to remove the wire.
  • Step 4 Insert the spark plug socket over the old spark pull and unscrew it from the cylinder well. Remove the old spark plug.
  • Step 5 Lubricate the threads of the new spark plug and screw it into the cylinder well.
  • Step 6 Test the tension and adjust it to the required setting. It needs to be 15 ft-lbs. for a 2.2 L engine, 16 ft-lbs. for a 2.4 L engine, 13 ft-lbs. for a 3.1 L engine, and 11 ft-lbs. for a 3.L engine.
  • Step 7 Reconnect the spark plug wire and twist it to lock the plug in place.
  • Step 8 Repeat Steps 3 through 7 for the remaining spark plugs.
  • Step 9 Replace all of the parts that were removed from the Grand Am in Step 2 to reach to the spark plugs.

    Where are the spark plugs


    Instructions Things You'll Need:
    • Spark plug socket
    • Socket wrench with extender
    • Anti-seize compound
    • New spark plug
    • Tension tester tool
    1. Step 1 Raise the hood and locate the battery. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Allow the engine to cool before attempting this process. Depending on the climate, it may take 30 minutes or more to cool the engine.
    2. Step 2 Find the spark plug cables on the Kia Spectra engine of either a four- or six-cylinder variety. The number of cylinders indicates the number of spark plug cables on the engine.
    3. Step 3 Turn the cables by the boot, or cover, that connects to the engine or directly to the spark plug. Disconnect one cable and complete the replacement process before removing the other cables to ensure the cables don't cross. Pull back on the cable to reveal the spark plug.
    4. Step 4 Remove the spark plug from the cylinder well with the socket. The extender may not be needed for 4-cylinder engines. Turn the socket in a counter-clockwise motion to unscrew the plug and remove it from the cylinder block.
    5. Step 5 Use the applicator supplied with the anti-seize to spread the compound over the threads of the new spark plug. This compound allows for easy removal when you need to check or replace the spark plugs.
    6. Step 6 Screw the spark plug into the cylinder well by hand. The spark plug needs to be tight in the well but may have to be loosened after the tension test finishes.
    7. Step 7 Test the torque of the spark plug with the tension tester tool. Normally the spark plugs on a Kia Spectra need 18 to 22 ft-lbs torque. Check the Spectra model's owner's manual or the manufacturer's package because some premium or performance spark plugs use different torques.
    8. Step 8 Reconnect the spark plug wire and turn it to lock it in place. Continue replacing the rest of the spark plugs. Reconnect the battery cable after you replace all the spark plugs.

    Hello,

    Remove both sparkplugs from engine. Plug them back in the sparkplug cables and let them rest on the engine.
    Make sure your battery is well charged.
    Check for sparks while kick-starting...
    Interchange the sparkplugs in the cables:
    -Same plug give sparks: replace the spark plugs.
    -Same side of engine sparks: interchange the low-voltage connector at the ignition coils.
    Give it a try:
    Same engine side sparks: Replace the defective ignition coil.
    Other side of the engine sparks: Check the circuit harness for loose connectors, and/or Clean-replace the breaker points ( left side of the engine carter ).

    Cant find the spark plug location on 2002 4cyl tacoma


    Locate the spark plug cover on the engine.On some Toyota Tacoma engines, the cover is across the top of the engine. On others, it is along the side 4 cyl. Remove the cover to reveal the ignition coils and spark plugs wires. The spark plug wires are plugged directly into the engine and the ignition coils are in the tip of the spark plug wire.
    Remove the coil and wire from the spark plug. Twist and pull the plug out of the engine. Remove the spark plug from the cylinder well with a socket extender and socket wrench. Turn the wrench to the left to unscrew the spark plug from the engine.

    Discard the old spark plug and apply a coat of anti-seize compound to the threads of the new spark plug.

    Insert the new spark plug into the socket. Use the socket and extension to screw the spark plug into place.

    Return the ignition coils and spark plug wires to the engine and turn it to lock the plug in place. Repeat the entire the process with the remaining spark plugs.

    Replace the spark plug cover when all of the spark plugs are replaced.

    Good luck and hope this helps and The spark plug tension may range between 11 and 15 foot pounds, depending on the size of the spark plug. The correct tension is indicated on the spark plug's packaging.
