I am having problems with Lionel Fastrack layout. When I put electrics to the layout the green light comes on and I think all is ok. However as and when I start to increase the power the red light A.


remove all the cars and engine from tracks and try it, if green stays on add one car back to track at a time and try it , when light turns red , the last car added is the problem

Engine wont catch


Catch?
cranks fast
starts every time.
idles fine hot or cold , or both? hot idle not too fast.
i race engine , in park and neutral, I can hit 3500 rpm easy, can you.
i release brakes, (brakes are not packed in ICE , are they?)
I select 1gear or reverse (A/T or m/t)
the car moves or dont move, which is it, my guess catch = no move at all.
I try to drive, i look at RPM and MPH
RPM moves up and MPH track.
track means they both move in a linear progression.
RPM rises and for all RPM increases MPH also increases.
does it?
if all that works then we have an engine power issue.
weak on hills?

Not firing


if you have an inductive timing light try it on all the spark plug cables to see if they are getting any voltage (dont worry about checking timing, just that the light is firing as it should) if it isnt check coil lead, then the distributor cap and rotor. Next check the ignition module... These are the basic things that would prevent the 94 from firing over. After that you would look to the ECM (computer). NOW this makes the assumption that the engine is getting fuel, which is another situation entirely. fuel filter, fuel pump, pressure regulator bad injectors, can all be a problem as well as a blown fuse to the fuel pump. Another problem though not likely, is a bad oil pump, as if the engine does not bring up oil pressure the ECM will not allow the fuel pump to power up... So you need to know if you are getting fuel, air and spark to make sure the engine will start. Air is the least of the problems as that is almost never an issue

I have two dimmer switches in the same box side by side. one goes to three pot lights, the other goes to a halogen track light. these have been working for 5 years. the lights have burnt out and been...


Sounds like the transformer in your track light. In the box where the green light is, the voltage is converted by a small transformer from 120v to 12v for the halogen lights. With the breaker off, try jumping out the dimmer going to the track light (disconnect the dimmer and connect the two loose wires from box together). With the breaker back on, if you have 120v power on the wires (black/white) going into the track light transformer (measured at the track light), and the green light won't come on, I'd say it's the track light transformer. You may have to replace the whole track if you can't get the transformer as a part.

Are you getting power to the coil on the dark green wire with the orange stripe? The relay must have power to the coil and also to the contact. If yes, then problem might be with the crankshaft position sensor.

Hi, Hope I can help you.
I do not know how you have checked for spark, but lets start from the beginning.
Lets start with an ignition systems check.
1. I want you to remove the high voltage coil wire. ( That's the wire in the center of the distributor cap.) Using a good pair of insulated pliers. I want you to hold it about 1/4 inch from a good engine ground. Now you will need a bit of help from a partner. Get them to turn the key and crank the engine. You should see a bright blue and well defined spark. Ok, If you have spark I want you to slowly move the coil wire away from the engine ground. As you do this I want you to pay attention to the coil tower. (The coil tower is where the other end of the coil wire is attached.) What your looking for is arcing and sparking at the coil tower. If this happens then you need to replace the coil with a new one. If this does not happen then your coil is working fine, and we will have to move on.
Note if you do not get spark from the coil wire replace the coil.

2. Ok if you have spark now we have find out if the spark is making it to the spark plugs. How are we going to do this? By checking the rotor, distributor cap, spark plug wires and spark plugs.First lets remove the distributor cap. This will allow use to inspected the rotor and the distributor cap. What your looking for is, cracks, carbon tracks and wear at the tip of the rotor. On the distributor ,look inside the cap for cracks, carbon tracks and wear on the terminals. If you find any of this replace the distributor cap and rotor. ( Note if you have any doubt of the condition of the rotor or the cap replace them.) Next lets check your spark plug wires. Lets pull off one of the spark plug wires from the spark plug side. Now inspect the wire connection for a white crusty powder. If you find crust replace your wires. Now you should check all of them the same way, but if even one has corrosion replace them all. You are going to have to inspect the wire its self . Going down the whole length of the wire. Holes cracks burn Marks and other damage. Once again if you find any damage replace them all.
I hope this will help you and good luck to all the read this FixYa

Replaced power supply after the old one died and now all i am getting is a solid amber light on motherboard with a green blinking light on usb port


first off double check your power connections to EVERYTHING. sometimes those connections will loosen. if those connections are fine then its a faulty power supply or there isnt enough power going to everything. double check with your motherboards manufactor and see if you have enough power for everything if you dont a bigger power supply is needed

98 suzuki marauder cranks over but will not start.


Hi,

- Some stupid checks to do ( but essential )
Is there fuel in the tank?
Is the fuel **** in an open, or even 'res' position?

- Remove the spark plugs, look if they aren't soaked wet.
- reconnect the ignition leads the the plugs, with the spark plugs touching the engine.
- Crank the engine and see if there are sparks at all the spark plugs.
- If yes, check for clogged carburettors and/or too low compression.

Wont start


Make sure that you're getting spark. A very common thing on these engines are coils going bad. If you can verify spark, check to make sure you have an injector pulse. As you rotate the engine, look inside of the throttle body and make sure that you see fuel pulsing into the engine. You can still have good pressure but you don't have an injector pulse, the fuel still cant get into the engine. You can use a test light as well to test for an injector pulse. One wire going to the injector will have constant power and the other will blink when the engie is rolled over. Does it start if you spray starting fluid into the throttle body? If it does, it's a fuel delivery problem. Again be sure you have spark from coil to distributor and plugs. You can remove the ignition module and take it to NAPA and they have a module tester. Have them test the module several times not just once. This will eliminate the possibilites of an intermitted problem. Let me know how it does. tiqautoperformance@live.com
