Check your coils,your points,your voltage regulator,and stator.
maybe check your fuses first though,if blown change it if it happens again then check all that other stuff.

I have a 1982 GS Suzuki 550. I am having trouble starting - It turns over but it won't catch. Thanks.


Hi, Stefan and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enrichner.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. A severely discharged or damaged battery, you need 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
13. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
14. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
15. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
16. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
17. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
18. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
19. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
20. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
21. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.
22. Check for engine trouble codes.

1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, starter solenoid only engages sometimes (starter motor always spins), occasionally starter gets stuck ON, and sometimes no spark (fuel is fine but car won't start u


ANY FAULT CODES? HAVE YOU CHECKED THE STARTE DEPTH FOR PROPER CLEARANCE? HAVE YOU RITIATED THE FLYWHEEL TO LOOK FOR MISSING TEETH? I HAD AN 82 T/A AND THAT WAS WHAT CAUSED MY STARTER PROBLEMS. AS FAR AS NO SPARK DO YOU HAVE ANY FAULT CODES INTHE ELECTRONICS? TO TEST WITHOUT A SCNNER GO TO THIS LINK

Hi, Zach and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enrichner.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. Fuel injectors stuck open.
13. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
14. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
15. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Sport it just won't start. It cranks, that's it. It was running fine yesterday.


If it was running yesterday and only cranks this morning you need to determine which you are missing - spark or fuel. The spark is easy - pull a plug and let it spark to the frame. while cranking. If you have spark then you have to start checking the fuel system.

My 1982 gs550 L will start fine but when it turns off the main fuse will blow every single time!


If you don't start the bike....just turn it on and off...does the fuse blow...or only if engine starts and stops?

If not starting engine still blows fuse, and it only blows shutting key off...I would inspect ignition switch for a short.

Not running on #3 cyl' on my 1982 gs550


Not likely valve timing if it will run, cams are one piece so if one is right all are right. Have you checked compression with a gauge, or just by feel? Try swapping the sparkplug wire with the #1 cylinder and see if the dead cylinder moves with the wire. Also try moving the spark plug to another cylinder and see if the dead cylinder moves with it. If the compression is indeed good, the problem will be with the spark plug/ wire, or in the carb, these are the only things that can kill a single cylinder. The coils run a pair of cylinders so a bad coil would put out 2 cylinders at the same time. Start with the spark plug, I have seen a perfectly good looking plug, that would fire whun held to the head, but would not fire in the cylinder.

Am looking ofr a copy of the manual - not a repair


Try this link, for download or for sale. Suzuki dealers can order them but they are often expensive if they say it may take six weeks. They have been known to source their own manuals from OEM partslist sellers who have remaining copies.

The following 2 links provide threads to these OEM sellers and have normal on-line shops. Cheers.
