SOURCE: engine misses on#5 cylinder i have already changed

not uncommon to have bad injector plugs can fire all day but if #5 injector doesnt give it anything to fire you will have a miss but first i can,t stress the importance of using die electric grease on those coil packs and booties i have found alot of problematic misses to end up being repaired by a little die electric grease

How is the EGR Valve?
What is causing the issue, is the higher vacuum
signal when you get on the gas.
Use that and theory to figure it out.

1993 Ducati M900. On cold start up low power. Feels like dropped cylinder. After a few minutes returns to normal. My thoughts, one of the coils. Spark plugs appear ok.


if the plugs look ok and don't indicate a fuel mixture problem, it could be from a weak spark. You can check the resitance on your coil and plug wires with an ohm meter to see if they are within factory specs. Also, check for a possible vacuum leak around the carb & cylinder head on the cylinder that is missfiring. You can do this with some carb cleaner, spray it around the carb mount and vacuum lines---if the RPM's change it sucked some in. Hope this helps.

Just will not start


You have most likely done this but lets go back to the basics.

Do you have spark at the plug?
Check to see if the plug is fouled - pull the plug connect to the plug wire- ground the metal part of the plug to the metal body of the engine - as you turn the engine over it should fire cleanly from the center to the electrode, if it fires off to the side or has an orange colored spark it is fouled - replace it.

Once we have spark check for gas is it getting to the carb?

90+ % of all small engines not running are due to the fuel line or in tank screen being plugged with garbage. Remove the fuel line from the carb, point it down and using a small container to catch the gas it should flow freely.
If you have good gas flow reconnect the fuel line to the carb and put about 1 CC of gas in the plug hole reinstall the plug and fire it - almost all small engines use a bit of vacuum to pull the fuel from the carb into the cylinder, jump starting them with a very small amount of gas directly in to the cylinder can help them get going.

Craftsman gas leaf blower will not start. Spark and gas lines ok. Not getting gas to plug even after prime and several pulls. How do I find gas supply problem. Diaphram in carb looks ok .It actually...


Basics to check:
1) Spark plug - brown or dark brown - OK
a) is it carbon or fuel fouled
b) is there spark

2) Muffler remove for inspection
a) exhaust screen clean or plugged
b) inspect cylinder wall/piston as the flywheel is slowly rotated
3) Check cylinder compression


Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
Chain Saws:
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside
