Look for kill switch. Make sure it is wired correctly and not broken or something like wires no connected. It cuts spark when activated so likely the problem since its in-line with exciter.

I have a 2000 kia sportage that cranks but will not start what might it be?


When en engine won't start, there could be a number of things wrong. An engine requires air, fuel, and spark to start. You need to start by checking for spark. Take out one of the spark plugs and plug it back into the wire. Have somebody else turn the key while you hold the plug up to something metal on the engine, right next to the spark plug hole will be fine. You should see a bright blue spark, if you don't then you probably need to replace the spark plugs. You can do this same thing with any of the spark plugs. If you don't have spark on any of the plugs, get back with me and we'll go from there.

Was riding bike and was stopped at a red light when it made a loud noise and died, now it won't start. The engine cranks and turns over but won't start.


You didn't say what year and model the bike was but on any four stroke engine, you must have three things for the engine to run. You need fuel, spark, and compression. The easy one to check is the fuel. Take your air filter off and make sure you're getting fuel to the engine. Then, check your spark. Pull the spark plug wires off the spark plugs in the head and insert another set of plugs in the wires. Ground the plugs against the engine, turn the ignition switch on and press the start button. Watch the plugs to see if you have spark. The next test is compression. With the engine cold, remove the spark plugs. If you have a compression gauge, connect it to one of the heads and spin the engine over with the starter. If you don't have a gauge, simply put your finger over the spark plug hole. Turn the throttle wide open and press the start button. You should show about a hundred pounds of compression if you have a gauge or the compression should blow your finger off the hole with a good deal of force if you're checking it that way. If you have all three of these and they're timed correctly, the engine should run. If the engine won't run, find out which of the three elements is missing and work from there.

Good Luck
Steve

30 minutes after buying car off lot car just cut off while coming to stop no engine light was on the car started right up


Hi Robin. It may be a few things. If you don't know when things were changed on the car since you just bought it, I would have a tune up done on it and all the fluids flushed and filled. The spark plugs/coils may have never been changed on the car. If you have a bad wire or plug, it could kill the car. It may be a map sensor. Usually when they are bad or going out, they can go five miles and they will die. Then they can go thirty miles before they die. It always starts back up though. Since you came to a stop when it dies, you might need to change the air filter and the fuel filter. Check all of your fuses. One may be blown. Check your hoses for a vacuum leak as well. Robin, don't hesitate to ask me a question. I am here to help as much as I can. Just write me back if you need something. Thanks Robin.

Plug gap 0.19

Tappets

Intake .005 cold
Exhaust .006 cold.

Robin engine for 27 ton log splitter..starting problems


remove the float bowl from the carburator and clean it out. Either the float is stuck of the needle valve is gummed up. Both the float and needle valve together regulate the fuel allowed into the bowl, if they dont allow fuel in or allow it in fast enough, the engine dies. Also check for a fuel Screen in the fuel tank, it may be plugged up.
