Remove one of the plugs, plug it back into the lead and holding the rubber lead, allow the spark plug end to touch the metal on the engine. Turn over the negine and check for spark. Repeat for the other plug.

No spark = faulty CDI unit, faulty coil, faulty stator

Need to chech how to fix my fish finder i check its power its ok but wont come on


Had a problem with my Humminbird. Took connectors out of cradle and ran direct into unit to check cradle, no difference.
Check your getting 12 volts of power to cradle. Did all this and ended up taking finder into a shop and plugging into their set up demo model and still nothing. Unit is stuffed, I'll replace it with similar brand to utilize cradle, wiring and sending unit

Took RAV 4 to NC mountains and back twice this weekend. It ran fine but started it this morning and it would stall when I took my foot off gas pedal


I would change your fuel filter. The mountains, and the sudden jerking would provide a great chance for the fuel to pull up any nasties, and then run them through the line.

Did you put a fuel stabilizer in when you laid up the engine. If not varnish will build up in the system and clog the needle valves and jets. Use a good carb and injector cleaner to clear the jets.
