Not uncommon for ignition module to fail, but before ordering one, check flywheel for its magnetic field. Use some steel material to test for field strength. Coil too is an option but typically they are pretty reliable.

John Deere L130 riding lawn tractor will not start what do I do?


I'm assuming the motor will crank over, but not start. Remove the air intake cover & filter off the carburetor air intake. Do you smell gas? Is gas dripping out of the carburetor? If not, spray a couple shots of starting fluid or carburetor cleaner into the carburetor air intake throat. Close the choke & crank the engine. If it starts, & stalls, repeat the process. If it won't stay running, your carburetor float jet is gummed up & needs to be cleaned. Check & clean the spark plug. Does the spark plug fire when the engine is cranked? If no, then you have an ignition problem.

Replacing the pump


There are only 3 things necessary for ignition.
1. fuel
2. air
3. spark

Use a starting fluid spray directly into air filter.
if engine starts but doesn't run the problem is fuel'

remove the carburetor float bowl and then use a screwdriver to remove the jet locking nut in the tube the bowl nut attaches.
Use a small wire to remove the jet locking nut after it is loose. Then use the wire to remove the jet tube. Tube has several jet ports that should also be cleaned. reassemble. Allow carburetor bowl to refill then crank at full choke position. If the engine starts buy some techron fuel additive from an auto parts store and add 2-4 ounces to the gas for the next 2 tanks. this will completely clean the fuel system.

If engine doesn't start check for spark either using a spark tester or removing the spark plug and holding plug against the engine frame and pulling starter rope if spark is present replace the spark plug and try to restart the engine.

If these steps don't work I would replace the carburetor.

check for spark at the plug lead while cranking engine

Cranks, why no start?


Usually because of an ignition or gas related problem. You need to check for spark at the plugs and for gas at the engine.

A quick method to check for a gas problem is to spray some starting fluid into the air intake on the throttle body. Take off the big boot from air filter housing to the engine, spray a shot of fluid into the engine, then try to start it. If it fires up and tries to run from the fluid for a few seconds, then you know it is a fuel problem. Maybe the fuel pump has quit working, or the fuel filter is clogged. If both are good, maybe a fuel injector circuit problem, less common but possible.

If nothing happens from the starting fluid, it may be ignition related-not getting spark. Pull off a spark plug wire from a spark plug and hold the plug wire end terminal about 1/4 inch from an engine bolt or ground. Have someone crank the engine over from the key and watch for a consistent, blue, snapping spark. If no spark, test a few other plug wires to verify no spark at all. So it is not just one ignition coil not working, but none of them produce spark. No spark means the ignition system needs diagnosing. Sometimes it is the ignition control module that goes bad-it can be tested at any parts store. Post back and we can go from there.

My 1998 honda civic ex wont start, I have tried changing the fuel filter, distributor cap and rotor, and air filter. It cranks but wont fire up... a couple days ago the car stopped running while my dad...


Make sure your distruibutor rotor in turning while cranking engine, if it is timing belt ok, more then likely your not getting spark to spark plugs check your ignition coil, but more then likely it's going to be your ignition module.

"Cranks, but won't start". Replaced fuel pump, CKP, ICM & nothing


If the engine cranks over normally when you attempt to start you car, but the engine does not start, the problem may be NO FUEL, NO SPARK or NO COMPRESSION. The engine needs adequate fuel pressure, a properly timed spark and normal compression to start.


1) To find why the engine won't start, remove the air inlet tube from the throttle body, push the throttle open and spray a small amount of aerosol starting fluid into the engine. Crank the engine. If it has spark and compression but NO FUEL, it will start and run a few seconds before dying. If it does NOT start, it probably has NO SPARK.

2)Another method to check for spark is to pull a spark plug wire off of a spark plug (if it has plug wires, coil-on-plug ignitions do not) and place the open end of the plug wire near a metal surface on the engine. Have a helper crank the engine while you watch for a spark. DO NOT hold the wire while doing this as it can shock you. If you see a spark, the problem is not spark, but most likely NO FUEL or NO COMPRESSION. If you do not see a spark, the problem is in the IGNITION CIRCUIT.

3)Proper fuel pressure is critical for fuel injected engines to start and run. You should hear the fuel pump inside the fuel tank buzz for a couple of seconds when the ignition is turned on (no buzz means the pump is not running and the engine is not getting fuel). You can smell the tailpipe for gasoline vapors after cranking the engine. If you smell gas, the problem is likely not fuel but NO SPARK. You can also remove the plastic cap and press the schraeder valve test fitting on the fuel rail to see if there is any fuel pressure to the engine (not a very accurate test because fuel pressure must be at a certain level for the engine to start, for that you need a gauge). Even so, no fuel at the fuel rail would tell you fuel is not getting to the engine..

Poulan 6.75 Lawn mower will not start


Remove spark plug, clean and dry. Replace plug. Remove air filter. Spray WD-40 into carb opening; one second blast. Turn over engine, (pull handle). Engine should start briefly and run for 3 seconds.  If not, you are not getting spark to spark plug. If engine starts, you have a dirty carb and you can buy a rebuild kit from manufacture.
