Are you checking at the Dist Cap or spark plug end of plug wire ?
If you are checking at the plug end of wire try exchanging that wire with a working wire. If the problem is not there with other good wire the wire must be bad. If it is not the plug wires to #8 & #5 replace DIST CAP. The Cap must be cracked or arcing internally.

Gx610 Honda v-twin small engine one side want fire


Hi, If you did the usual testing (comp,Carb cleaning, etc.) then I would go to the electronic ignition box if it has one. I've been fooled before. Checking for spark, wire off, or plug out, isn't the same as a plug under compression , Good luck.

Although more info would be helpful, the first thing that comes to mind
is that, somehow, the power to to ignition system was disconnected
when the starter was installed. Easy to check... take off a spark plug
wire at the spark plug, put a small piece of wire in the end, and place
this 1/4 inch away from engine block... be sure there is no gasoline or
gas fumes near. Have someone crank the engine and look for spark
from the plug wire to the block. If no spark, may well be the ignition
system (do this in shaded area so you can see the spark). If you have
spark, then the problem is elsewhere.

Will not start... Getting fuel but I think no fire


sounds similar to an issue i had... have you recently changed the fuel filter? if so, what about spark plug wise? check the ignition coil (remove plug wire from cap and place metal bit at least 1/8" from engine block and have someone start car for a sec caution stay away from cable when doing this) if spark occurs it could possibly be the pickup coil located within distributor however this coil can cost just as much as a new distributor so just get one from junkyard

2009 electra Glide Classic rear cylinder doesn't spark its not the coil or wire


Hi D, if you have a CKP sensor it needs compression to send correct signal to the ICM/ECM, make sure both spark plugs are in heads and use a grounded third plug to check for spark or hold spark plug cable close to spark plug in head. If still not getting spark the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Battery voltage below 8.7 volts, loose or broken battery cables especially "GROUND" cable to frame.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, MAP or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Security alarm failing to disarm.

I put a new long block in my 1997 Chev truck 1500 4.3L Vortec. I am not getting any spark from my coil to my distributor. What tells my coil to fire? And where do I check it?


If you have a distributor then it is the one that tells the coil when to fire then it distributesb to the correct plug. What you do not have is ignition power, be it manual or electronic ignition. Check for that. A picture of your ignition system or deeper description would help.

Firing order on a 305 on the cap. Got the wires all messed up...


This method is good for the firing order on all chevy small block v8 engines from 265 cubic inches to 400 cubic inches. This would include 265, 283, 305, 327, 350, 400 cu. in. chevy small block v8 engines.

Let's cover some safety concerns first. If you try to troubleshoot a mixed up firing order with the engine running, you could be in for a serious shock,.. literally. You can do it, with certain precautions, but you really don't need to check the firing order with the engine running. You definitely don't want to try checking the firing order if you are wearing any kind of pacemaker or sensitive electromechanical prosthesis. The voltage coming out of the ignition coil is in the thousands. Common sense dictates that you wouldn't stick a knife in an electrical outlet, so you wouldn't want to take chances with being shocked by the electrical discharge from your classic chevy's ignition coil either. See the diagram:


5d6424a.png

The firing order, which should be cast into the intake manifold, for the chevy small block V8 is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. The firing order is the numerical sequence in which the spark plugs are fired. The insertion position of each spark plug wire around the circumference of the distributor cap can be found according to a clock face. The insertion sequence determines the firing order. The firing order is followed clockwise around the distributor cap starting from the 6:30 position with the 6:30 position being the number one cylinder spark plug wire.

On classic chevy small block engines that use ignition breaker points instead of electronic ignitions, the number one cylinder is the one immediately clockwise of the small metal sash cover on the distributor cap. The firing order starts here. There is no sash cover on the distributor cap for GM HEI electronic ignitions, and the firing order is the same, but starting at the 5:30 position.
The firing order makes sense if you know how the cylinders are numbered. The number one cylinder is the front most on the drivers side and 2 being the front most on the passenger side. From front to back, the cylinders are odd numbered on the drivers side, and even numbered on the passenger side.

Additional details HERE.

Hope helps (remmeber rated this).

See the diagram; Click to open a printable larger image in a new window. The firing order starts with the number one cylinder. We would connect the number one spark plug wire to the distributor cap terminal in the 6:30 position. distributor.pngSince the next cylinder in the firing order is 8 (passenger side rear), we connect the number 8 spark plug wire to the next distributor cap terminal (approximately 7:30 position) in the clockwise direction from number one. You need to be sure you continue the firing order in the clockwise direction around the chevy small block distributor cap from the last installed spark plug wire. Setting the rest of the firing order is just a matter of repetition. Be sure to count the spark plugs from front to back on each side of the motor to identify the correct cylinder number in the firing order.

The car will run for 10 to 15 min then die then 5 to 10 min after it dies it will start again. it has the 6 cyl


I've seen this with several vehicles within the mid 90s (including a 95 probe) and traced it back each time to the electronic ignition. As the car drives, the ignition coil heats up and becomes more resistive. As this happens, the coil outputs less voltage until finally it's not enough to put out sufficient spark to fire the cylinders.

Try this: Drive the car around for a while. When you start feeling the motor struggle, park somewhere and idle until it dies. Then quickly pop the hood, pull an ignition wire, pop in an extra plug and hold near the block (check for fuel leaks first!!) and observe the spark strength. If it looks weak, a new electronic ignition unit will solve your problem.
