just trace the spark plug wire to the coil but you can check the spark by putting a new plug in the wire and make sure it is grounded and turn the engine over if you have spark then you have to pull the fly wheel off and check the fly wheel key

Im not getting fire to cyclinders to my 27 Hp kohler engine,I replace key switch.

Check your ignitions coils under your engine shroud and you can do that by pulling your spark plugs and leaving those intact in your spark plug boot. make sure your plug is meeting your engine block and turn you ignition key on to start and check for spark or go to your auto parts store get a ignition coil tester. they can be expensive depending on the store. If no spark then you need a new or used coil. Try Ebay that.

Stihl fs 80 trimmer, replaced carb, air filter, spark plug, ignition coil. still doesn't start. Next? not getting spark from plug

Loosen coil screws, adjust coil to magneto flywheel magnets with a double sheet of common paper, tighten screws, so that paper will pull out without tearing. That will give you the best chance for a good spark, with all you have done. Pull spark plug out , put top of plug back in spark boot.......crank ovr with rope, and ground spark plug on top of motor(metal), observe the blue spark. If none, check the short wires for any breaks from coil to switch. You can open handle and take out switch, if nothing else works.....then try and start. The wires are just to break the ground, to turn off motor. Can choke motor to stop.

I have a 2002 Mitsubishi galant. I replaced the fuel pump, spark plus and coil packs. It still won't start. Any ideas?

ignition controller (computer) - easy to check. hook up one or two of the old coils with old spark plugs. make sure plugs are touching metal on the motor (for grounding), have someone crank starter while you CAREFULLY observe plugs, you should see spark at plugs. if spart, i'd check for timing sensor problems, if no spark then problem is in ignition computer.

Sears tractor cuts out while cutting grass like somebody turns the key off

Could be a failing ignition coil,i have seen a tractor start right up and runs,until the coil heats up from the motor. When this happens the motor dies,do to the coil not producing spark to the spark plug. You didn't mention if the tractor's motor was restarted right after it quit running or was it left until later when you attempted to restart the motor allowing the motor to cool. However,how old is the spark plug? If the spark plug is old,the plug will start failing,do to heat also. I would try a new right type spark plug,make sure the gap is set correctly according to your Owner's Manual. I have found that the gap on some new plugs,not set correctly,when it comes right out of the box. You can check the plug,by turning the motor by hand to see if there is a spark,turn on the ignition switch first(DO NOT USE THE START POSITION) when doing this,the tractor just might crank over,will not start if the plug is out.(But your hand could be injured). Check for a bright spark,if there is one,install the plug then try starting the tractor,in the start position. If you,have checked,what i suggested and everything is good-to-go. The tractor should start and run,like a new tractor. One more suggestion,check the fuel filter,while your down,this maybe or maybe not be the problem,doesn't hurt to check it. Sincerely,Brad Locke.

Vehicle missing and intermittent non starting Nissan Pulsar

Hi, when you turn the ignition to start that the engine turning not at all. If your car engine turning but do not pick up. There is only this three things can start your car.
1- Fuel
2- Spark
3- Compression.
If you have fuel look for spark, If you have spark look for fuel, if you have both do compression test.
If no spark check your leads or coil packs
if no fuel check your filter is not block it or fuel pump.
If your engine is not turning at all check your battery or your starter.
Give more information do you have pack coil for each plugs or loose plugs wires.

I have a26hp kohler engine on my craftsman riding ractor and it doesn't run after 5 minutes. I have changed the carb, and tune it up with Sears parts and it still does the same thing. How can I te

they make a inline spark tester you can put inline to the plug so the plug fires and you can see but that motor has 2 coils so if 1 cuts out the other cylinder will keep on going so if your loosing spark look at the safety switches the seat the clutch/brake pedal the trans shifter etc if its starving for fuel the gas cap vent could be plugged not allowing the tank to flow fuel
