Pull the spark plug after pushing the primer bulb and cranking a few times...if the plug is "wet" (indicating fuel is present in the cylinder) then the next step will be checking the compression...compression should read above 90psi (preferrably 100-125psi)...if compression is below 90psi, the most likely culprit will be a stuck piston ring.

What do I need to do it is spin over but will not crank

Make sure fuel is reaching the engine as a first step. Have someone check the TDC crank sensor for you.

Recently purchase a non running 03' 883cc. with 10k. miles, I change plugs, wires, ign. coil, cleaned the carb. replace all fuses, main fuse, starter relay, new battery fully charged, checked all wires...

What the VOS does is controls spark advance, it will NOT cause the spark plug to not fire.

You said no spark.
I assume at spark plug?

Did you check for fire at coil?
When you replaced coil, did you wire it correctly?
Did you use the right coil? Different Harleys require different Ohm coils.

If all above is good, follow wiring back to find why no fire.

1993 Grand Cherokee Lardo runs great then it decides it does not want to start

THE JEEP ZJ ! NO ENGINE STATED, so real hard to help !!!!
cranks robustly (crank shaft actually turns, look)
and will not start.?
no engine stated, there are many , must know engine to fix them.
so did you check spark at all cylinders. ?
and timing of them.
and spark wire firing order, one guy had a friend swap them for fun.
(he had a accident later.. LOL)
if spark is hot on all 4 or 6 cylinders.
and #1 fires near zero on the pulley, then
try test fuel, spray it. runs for 3 seconds and sounds good.
that mean engine and spark are good and you lost fueling
the steps are same 1920 to now, on mr. otto cycle engines.

a 60k tune up is more.
1: spark plugs , J plugs, stock & gap'ed right.
2: spark wire. new.
3: cap and rotor.
4: air filter, and fuel filter.

when you replaced the dizzy(why?) did you read the FSM
to retime it, it times injection too.
be sad to make it worse throwing parts on top of a good dizzy

there is no reason to replace the DIZZY unless
one of these fails #42 or 54. 54 is dead dizzy Cmp sensor.
ever see this? DIAGNOSICS.

got a ignition spark strobe light?, this is childs play.
check spark x6
check firing near TDC #1 , near 0 degrees. see hood spec for exact spec. (open hood ,USA, look up, see EPA, timing spec, BINGO.)
and firing order, do not cross wire to wrong plugs
do not guess at firing order or rotor direction or all this fails.
true for all cars with dizzy,
the fsm is there. no need to guess. ever


  1. if engine is good (compresson)
  2. and spark is good
  3. and not flooded, (look)
if not flooded it will run for 3 seconds, at least.
if flooded
use super secret , unflood mode, crank WOT
wide open throttle, its in the oper , guide this for all cars made, 1988 to now.

92 GMC sonoma 2.5L 4cylinder - replaced plugs,wires,fuel filter on the rail,checked fuel pump plenty of fuel. Wants to crank but doesnt seem like its getting fuel. used starting fluid still would fire off....

How about no spark or did you screw up the firing order when you replaced the plug wires? It is easy to do.Typically there are 2 things to get an engine to fire that's fuel and spark. other things will make it run bad but not even a short rumble when you use starting fluid, there is no ignition. Get a spark test tool from the auto parts store. Check the firing order and be sure your wires are in the correct order.

Darien, just because it's getting good spark at the spark plug wires doesn't mean that the spark plugs are firing. Now let's get your girlfriend happy again, Remove those spark plugs, check the center electrode and see if they are worn down, if they are worn down, change all 4, Good luck, Gary

Engine was running fine and shut it off 5 min. Tried restart and engine cranks but won't fire. Dual tanks 1 new fuel pump.Switch tanks still no start, tried next day, runs fine???????

Step #1 in any automobile diagnosis is "Isolate the system"
Switching fuel tanks may have seemed like a good idea, but it did not definitively determine whether the the fuel is getting to the fuel rails, so you are no closer to eliminating the fuel devery system than you were when the engine died.
If it does it again, you should do the easiest things first.
Pull a spark plug wire and check to see that you have good spark reaching the spark plugs. Good spark will eliminate the entire spark control system.
Only if you have good spark should you suspect a "part-time " fuel system problem. The Fuel delivery system can be eliminated if actual fuel pressure is checked at the fuel rail. (although you could still have injectors not firing for one reason or another)
You are losing one of these systems. (spark or fuel) only once you have determined which one, can you continue diagnosis to pinpiont the failure.

Cranks but won't start fuel pump not coming on

put a small amount of fuel in the intake near the throttle plate then crank and see if it fires, if it does then it's a fuel problem, if it does not fire then pull a plug wire and put a philips head screw driver into the plug wire hold it 1/4 inch away from a good ground then have someone crank it over, you should see spark and it should be blue, if not then you have a ignition problem a bad coil or cam sensor but need to know what you found out on the two tests I told you first to give you a direction to go.

1991 Honda Civic STILL won't start

if your not getting spark then your coil is the mostlikely cause it's obviously not a timing issue since you stated that the rotor is spinning. if the spark plugs are bad then replace them too . to be sure that your getting spark to all cylinders test each of the spark plugs after replacing the coil. just to besure it's not starving for fuel as well spray a little ether in the breather if it fires off right away that means the even though your fuel pump works it may not have a high enough pressure. let me know the results
