Replace the plug and retry (<$5), if no better try this.

You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You do not have to bend up the electrode.


Ignition module gap
Place a business or index card between the fly wheel and coil, rotate until the magnetic attraction pulls everything tight together. Tighten the coil screws, rotate the flywheel until the attraction abates and remove the card. Ensure nothing contacts when the flywheel is rotated.

Why wont start


Ok well there is only two things that make a combustion engine run! If you are getting gas to the fuel rail and it has adequate fuel pressure at the rail then you have a spark problem! Pick up a spark tester( looks like a plug wire in a way but has a light ) Plug it into the first plug on the right side of the motor,(# 1 cylinder) and have a friend turn over the motor. There should be positive spark and the light indicator should light as a constant . If it is intermittent in any way than spark is why u will not start. Then on these years I always start with a new coil or coil packs depending on your type of engine! Hope this helps!! Just my opinion and I could be wrong ! Good luck.

I have a poulan leaf blower that will not start.it sat for 2 years started once for about a minute


get a new plug and then check for spark. a spark checker is a better choice...and since I would be more inclined to believe you're not getting any fuel replace the carb and fuel lines. it's a waist of time trying anything else. just because you have fuel in the primer DOES NOT mean gas is getting to the engine. If you DO NOT have spark, but you have fuel, your spark plug WILL be fuel fouled (soaked with fuel)

2001 Kia sportage crank but won't start


Make sure you're getting spark at the spark plugs. You can do this by arching the plug to the engine block Just Google "how to test spark plugs". If there is a spark then it could be your timing, which is what happened to my wife's car, once we replaced everything, this was the final thing which solved her problem.

Did you change the fuel filter? Is there a way to confirm that you're getting gasoline to the carburetor? If it fired once it should mean that you have spark to the plugs but there could also be a short in the kill switch circuitry that kills the ignition system. Pull a spark plug and put it in the spark plug wire socket, ground it against the motor and crank the engine and see if you're getting a good spark. Ensure that the air filter isn't dirty.

Dump the fuel in the tank, get new gas and new oil and start over. Get a carbeurator cleaner additive for the gas as your carb. is dirty resulting in the sporatic operation.

A spray carb. cleaner that you squirt into the air intake by removing the air filter will also work for you. In fact, when you are getting the carb. cleaner get a new air cleaner and a new spark plug. get back and let me know how u make out.

I need to change the spark plugs and i dont know where to start?


Go through your spark plug wires and mark which plug it is on. Once you have done this then you can pull the wires off each spark plug. Once the plug wires are off take a spark plug socket and gently apply some pressure to loosen the spark plug. Once its loose you should be able to reach down and remove the plug by hand. Once you have the plug off grab your new plug. Make sure it has the correct gab setting for your engine size and then install the new plug. once you have the new plug in gently snug it down. Do this with the rest of your plugs. Once all your plugs are in place and snugged down then put your plug wires back on each plug (This is where the labeling comes in handy). It is also a good idea to get a good set of plug wires and just replace them while you are at it.
