Check stop switch mechanism (kill switch, safety interlock cable). Check for damaged coil wire to spark plug. Make sure coil wire is completely seated onto spark splug. Sometimes the coil wire gets damged and shorts out to the shroud.

Check spark?


Benjamin, remove spark plug, attach plug wire onto plug, hold end of plug against cylinder head or a metal fastener that you know is going into engine for good ground. Make sure engine switch is in the on position, now pull engine over, observing the gap in plug for spark. If no spark get a new plug and try.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Won t start


If the plug is wet, it is likely fouled and the cylinder flooded. Dry off the plug and reinstall it. Open the choke and throttle so the carb throat is wide open and crank the engine over. This will evacuate excess fuel out of the cylinder faster then anything. It should fire at least once.

Fuel pump cycling long time bike won't fire,has good spark.


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
11. Security alarm needs a reset.

My 2001 mercury sable has new altinater,battery, and spark plug but won't fire up.What could be the problem?


Are you getting fuel pressure? You have an inertia switch in the trunk and it might need reset(push the red button down). It shuts off the electric fuel pump in case you have an accident or get bumped hard.Sometimes they just actuate for no known reason.
Also crankshaft position sensor could be dead. Have you run the engine codes? don-ohio (:^)

Engine won't fire. Starter turns over, but, won't run


Hi Anonymous, when checking for spark the CKP needs to measure the compression bump in order to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM so always check for spark with either a third plug grounded or lift the end of the plug boot 1/2 " off one of spark plugs that are in the head. and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty
2. Fuel supply valve turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded with gasoline as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Fuel valve or filter clogged.
6. Vacuum hose to automatic fuel supply valve disconnected, leaking, or pinched.
7. Discharged battery, loose or broken battery connections especially the "GROUND" cable to the frame.
8. Loose wire connection at coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, spark plug cable connections loose,
or cables connected to wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to faulty ignition coil, ignition module, or sensors " Manifold Absolute Pressure" "Camshaft Position Sensor" "Crank Position Sensor" "Brake Apply Sensor
11. Engine lubricant to heavy ( winter operation )
12. Sticking or damaged valves or push rod wrong length.
13. Primary cam sproket spline sheared or missing spacer.
14. Security alarm system not disarming.
For a primary suspect please visit the website below. Good luck and have nice day.

My car will turn over but it dont get fire to it. What should i do?


Here's a couple of options ... from least expensive to most expensive:
if your engine is turning over, then your electrical system is probably good, but if you are not getting fire, it is likely your spark plugs. Try replacing them and see if that fixes it.
If it is not your plugs, then you might have an issue with your spark-plug wiring (between the distributor and the plugs). If they look old and worn, try putting on a new set.
It could be your fuel system -- if your engine is not getting gas, it won't fire no matter how good the plugs are. Give it a new fuel filter first and try it out ... if not that then try the fuel pump.
If you are still not getting fire to the engine, have someone look at your distributor cap -- if it is not distributing power to the spark plugs correctly then your engine will not fire
If it is not any of these problems, you will probably have to take the car to a professional and have them give it a look. The above issues are the most common, most likely, and easiest and cheapest to fix, so I would try those first. If you plan on doing the work yourself, grab a Haynes manual to help you out -- it might even have a list of common issues that are specific to your make and model of car.

1997 dodge avenger won;t start. engine has no spark. checked the spark plugs, they look good.


Does your engine turn over, just not fire? if it sounds like it wants too start but its not firing, try your distributor. this happened to my car last week actually, went out and bought a new dist. and it is fine now. its a big expense, so try to find one at a junk yard and they say you can take it back if its not that. thats your best bet. hope it helps.
