Set the valves at .004 when piston is 1/4 inch down from TDC, This is to help with cranking when plugs are in but not sure why its hard to turn past TDC when plugs are out,could be from coil or coils conntacting flywheel magnets.

I put the wrong type of spark plugs into a eclipse and the wrong type of gas into the car and rebbed it up it shut down and does not crank anymore. It's a 1998 turbo misutibsi eclipse


What was the difference in the spark plug, long reach, or hotter?

What was the 'wrong gas', not nitro-methane or methanol I hope?

You can try removing the spark plugs and try turning the engine by hand. If manual, put car in second gear and push backwards. If the engine turns, check for compression. If automatic, put a socket on the crankshaft pulley and turn it.

Have used 4g63turbo evo2 . Aftermarket bov etc . 800kms through bottom end run-in process . All is well but tonight acceleration is straining .airflow/turbo related? Also thinking exhaust.


first with engine cooled down removed spark plugs then turn engine in direction of running rotation by hand from the crank to see if its mechanical related like eg bearing seized. With the spark plugs removed engine must turn easily by hand if not something is holding

1989 ford f 150 i been driving and the engine stop fuel have don't start


could be fuel pump,check for fuel see if fuel pump supplying fuel and you are getting spark.make sure ignition timing is correct and the idle speed setting correct check the under hood emissions information label.also check engine make sure engine not over heating check cooling fan clutch see if cooling fan clutch is okay by turning it by hand if engine is hot cooling fan should have resistance if engine is hot, if cooling fan feel loose no resistance the fan clutch is bad.

I have know by experience that if you cross plug wires you can get an engine extremely hot ive seen it also seen it hot enough to get the exhaust manifolds glowing red if they havent put their hands in it and corrected the problem i would check the firing order to make sure it was correct and that they didnt cross the plug wires.

Please check to be sure that connections at your battery are tight and clean. Try to turn them by hand. if you can, they're not tight enough. If this is not the case, I would suspect a faulty starter. When it will not turn over, do your headlamps, and the rest of the electrical accessiries work? If so, try tapping the starter with a hammer, LIGHTLY. This will usually make it work a few more times. Good luck!

I blew the turbo on my 2005 pt cruiser limited ed. I replaced the entire turbo,and added new sparks...(only has 52k miles) Since then my car does not get over 65mph without feeling like its stalling...


What kind of spark plugs did you use??? Here is a list of plugs that you can use on your Turbo engine.

Champion
* Copper - stock # 440 - RE14MCC5 (OEM)
* Copper - stock # 470 - RE14MCC5 (supercedes/replaces # 440, but some catalogs same part #)
* Copper - RE16MC (supercedes/replaces RE14MCC5 and new Chrysler recommended gap is .040)

NGK
* Copper - LZTR4A-11 (supercedes/replaces RE14MCC5 and new * Chrysler recommended gap is .040)
* Copper - stock # 4306 - LZTR5A-13 (one range colder)

If you use the platinum spark plugs used on the Non-turbo engine, they will start to glow and cause misfires and can cause engine damage to saver detonations throughout the RPM cycle.

As for the over heating, you could have a blown head gasket from a severer detonation if you notice coolant and oil mixing in your engine and coolant tank. The less cause for over heating wold be a bad thermostat or a faulty radiator cooling fan, cooling fan relay or cooling fuse which is located in the engine compartment fuse box by the battery.

Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Where are the spark plugs


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Spark plug socket
  • Socket wrench with extender
  • Anti-seize compound
  • New spark plug
  • Tension tester tool
  1. Step 1 Raise the hood and locate the battery. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Allow the engine to cool before attempting this process. Depending on the climate, it may take 30 minutes or more to cool the engine.
  2. Step 2 Find the spark plug cables on the Kia Spectra engine of either a four- or six-cylinder variety. The number of cylinders indicates the number of spark plug cables on the engine.
  3. Step 3 Turn the cables by the boot, or cover, that connects to the engine or directly to the spark plug. Disconnect one cable and complete the replacement process before removing the other cables to ensure the cables don't cross. Pull back on the cable to reveal the spark plug.
  4. Step 4 Remove the spark plug from the cylinder well with the socket. The extender may not be needed for 4-cylinder engines. Turn the socket in a counter-clockwise motion to unscrew the plug and remove it from the cylinder block.
  5. Step 5 Use the applicator supplied with the anti-seize to spread the compound over the threads of the new spark plug. This compound allows for easy removal when you need to check or replace the spark plugs.
  6. Step 6 Screw the spark plug into the cylinder well by hand. The spark plug needs to be tight in the well but may have to be loosened after the tension test finishes.
  7. Step 7 Test the torque of the spark plug with the tension tester tool. Normally the spark plugs on a Kia Spectra need 18 to 22 ft-lbs torque. Check the Spectra model's owner's manual or the manufacturer's package because some premium or performance spark plugs use different torques.
  8. Step 8 Reconnect the spark plug wire and turn it to lock it in place. Continue replacing the rest of the spark plugs. Reconnect the battery cable after you replace all the spark plugs.
