Question about Bimota DB5 Mille Motorcycles

1 Answer

My check engine light is on and I had it put on the computer and they said it is misfiring on cylinder 4. We changed the spark plugs and all. My uncle said we could adjust the valve and it would fix it. Can I?

Hi, Bamababy2881 for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. For more information about your issue please visit the website below. Good luck and have a nice day.

SOURCE: Rear cylinder not firing

The first thing I would do is replace the spark plugs again. You can foul a plug and it will cause you more problems than you can ever imagine. I see you have done all the logical things that I would recommend but I did not see you have replaced the plugs after the 200 miles. You would be surprised at how many times a $2.00 part can cause fits beyond belief.

hi mate,, pretty rare 4 these babies to pack up ,,but if there is no spark,,1st thing u will have to get checked is the cdi box,, which operates the sparking system, as well as the coils,, rare that the coils pack up,, check the wires on the coils b4 u go any further,, make sure they are all secure,, and pull of the plug caps and just snip a bit of the ht wire ,,ie the big thick wire from the coil to the plug ,,snip a bit of the cap end so u can see a couple strands of copper wire in the core of the ht wire,, then replace the cap,, if all that is cool,, then its a cdi prob,, if u can see if u can borro one to try out,, any probs come back and step 2 il take u threw,, cheers

CYLINDER 1 MISFIRE?


Check the spark plug gap on all of your spark plugs.

Dec 27, 2011 | Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Missing,viborating


Misfire could be a number of things:
a) spark plugs - change them if used over 15K miles - inspect/regap.
b) spark plug wires - change them if over 15K miles - inspect
c) ECM (electronic control module) - test with HEI (high energy ignition) tester.

The vibrating tells me that the engine is running on less than its normal compliment of cylinders - the shaking is produced by the imbalance caused in the engine by one (or more) cylinder(s)
not firing at all.

The "Check Engine" light probably is coming on due the the misfire condition. Go to Pep Boys or
Advance Auto Pats, where they'll tell you (free) your codes causing the "Check Engine' light to be
lit - the code coming from your truck's computer will probably be one or more of:
P0300 - Random/Multiple Cylinder misfire detected
P0301 - Cylinder 1 misfire detected
P0302 - Cylinder 2 misfire detected
P0303 - Cylinder 3 misfire detected
P0304 - Cylinder 4 misfire detected
P0305 - Cylinder 5 misfire detected
P0306 - Cylinder 6 misfire detected
P0307 - Cylinder 7 misfire detected
P0308 - Cylinder 8 misfire detected
P0313 - Misfire detected with low fuel

I changed my spark plugs and afterwards the chech engine light came on. the jeep runs great. what can make that happen?


IT could be something such as a loose plug wire.The best advise I can give you is to take your jeep to your local auto parts store and have them pull the codes out of your on board computer.This will give you an area that you can concentrate on to make the necessary repairs to get your check engine light to go out.

My check engine light is on and the code is reading p0304 what could be the problem


You have a Misfire at Cylinder #4 meaning:
Dirty, fouled or malfunction Spark Plug at #4 Cylinder. Remove the Spark Plug and check the igntion (spark end).
Ignition (Spark Plug) Wire malfunction for #4 Cylinder.
Misfire from the Coil/Distributor at the #4 connection from Cylinder #4.
Get a Spark Plug/Wire/Coil/Distributor tester and check the Spark Plug, Wire and Coil.
I always recommend changing everything in sets meaning: Change all Spark Plugs and Wires.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!
