SOURCE: 2001 flht standard not getting fire 2 plugs will

Sounds like the coil. Had the same problem with a Sportster, changed coil. As coil ages it breaks down, heat expands internal connections and coil fails. When cooled, coil contracts and the contacts come back together. This COULD be your problem, not sure. Do you have a buddy that will let you try his coil for a test?

2001 FORD WINDSTAR stopped heating


Check top rad hose for heat. When enging has been running for 10-15 minutes, shut off engine and feel top rad hose. It should be very warm if not hot to the touch. If it is not hot, Change thermostat. It is located under housing that top rad hose mounts to on engine. You can get a eplacement at any auto parts store. Get a failsafe one. If it fails it does so in the off position only and will not cause overheating problems if it fails.
If rad hose is hot it is a problem with your heater, possibly plugged

Why is check engine light on when my 2001 electra glide std. is carburated?


Although your engine is carburated, it still has an ECM. The engine gets it's timing pulses from a crank position sensor on the left side of the engine. It also has a MAP sensor and several other sensors.
