SOURCE: Three wires melted.....

Possibly....usually a melted wire indicates a bad connection. Can you solder or crimp the wires to the compressor?

How to set time with light


Most timing lights have to cables with clamps that connect to the vehicle battery. A third wire is clamped over or put in line with the number 1 spark plug wire. Some vehicles require the vacuum advance be diconnected and the vacuum hose plugged before timing. The engine pulley bolted on the crankshaft usually has a mark that will be illuminated by the timing light when the engine is running. This mark has to be lined up with the proper mark on the engine block . Turning the distributor moves the mark back or forward. Adjust till timing marks line up.
Hope this helps.

I have a WWM450PC Waring waffle maker and it has melted at the top at the cord post


You can cut the wall plug end off and buy a new plug end at Lowes, Ace Hardware, etc. Just need an electrical wire cutter to cut it and remove the outer rubber on the wires inside the cord, along with a small flat-end screwdriver to tighten the 2 screws onto the wires. Very cheap fix and it's very easy to do.

91 chevy 4.3, put on new coil and icmodule but still no spark, what do i need to check


Hi there:

Refer to the wiring diagram, click here. First of all, you should have battery voltage at the pink wire to the coil with key on start or run. The pink wire coming from the ignition switch, not the pink wire from coil to distributor, although you may have voltage there as well. Second, the white wire for the tach you should be checking with a 12 volt test light while cranking. That should flicker if the primary circuit is ok.Quite possibly the other white wire may flicker also, according to the diagram.

Anyhow, how are you checking for spark and are you checking right at the coil? If so, swap a small spark plug wire for the coil wire and check again for spark at the end of the wire.

Make a test plug. You can make a test plug with a new spark plug and some wire, a mini hose clamp and an alligator clip. First open the spark plug gap to around 0.075" and strip both ends of a 16 gauge wire about 4 foot in length. Attach the mini hose clamp around the threads of the spark plug cause that is a ground and secure it with the mini hose clamp with the bare wire end in between to make a good connection. Next, take the other end of wire and secure to an alligator clip.

Now, you have a test plug. Remove any spark plug boot you want and insert your test plug onto the spark plug wire end you just pulled off and ground the alligator clip. Lay the spark plug in some shade somewhere under that hood and then crank the engine and look for spark. It should crackle with sound and should be blue but red is ok, orange is a little weak. If it can jump that 0.075" gap you should have no problem igniting an engine.
You can also use that to check coils on some vehicles.

Hope this helps.

Coil pack 2 is not working


First thing I would do is make sure it is getting a good spark and fuel. Since you already checked compression, the only other engine mechanical problem I can think of is a wiped camlobe. After confirming spark and fuel remove the valve cover and either measure the cam lift or start it up and watch the rocker arms and make sure they are moving as much as the others. To check for spark I would make a test plug. You may also want to make a cylinder balance tester and also you may want to purchase a noid light kit to make sure the injector is getting a signal.

Test Plug
You can make a test plug with a new spark plug and some wire, a mini hose clamp and an alligator clip. First open the spark plug gap to around 0.075" and strip both ends of a 16 gauge wire about 4 foot in length. Attach the mini hose clamp around the threads of the spark plug cause that is a ground and secure it with the mini hose clamp with the bare wire end in between to make a good connection. Next, take the other end of wire and secure to an alligator clip.

Now, you have a test plug. Remove any spark plug boot you want and insert your test plug onto the spark plug wire end you just pulled off and ground the alligator clip. Lay the spark plug in some shade somewhere under that hood and then crank the engine and look for spark. It should crackle with sound and should be blue but red is ok, orange is a little weak. If it can jump that 0.075" gap you should have no problem igniting an engine.

You can also use that to check coils on some vehicles.

Cylinder Balance Test
First of all you will need a 12-volt test light and about 8-12 inches of neoprene vacuum hose. The vacuum hose will conduct electricity cause it is carbon based, use an ohmmeter if you aren't sure and see if the vacuum hose you have will conduct.

Now, cut off the same # XXXXX cylinders you have in small equal lengths of the vacuum hose. 2-3 inches will do fine. The small diameter kind like to carburetors, etc will work as long as they fit over the distributor cap tower connection.

Now, mark all your spark plug wires at the cap or coil pack and remove them all. Put those short pieces of vacuum hose on the distributor cap or coil pack connections and shove the other end of the vacuum hose into the spark plug wire boot until it makes a good connection.

Now connect your 12 volt test ground clip to a ground and start the vehicle. With the engine running touch the 12 volt test light to each of the vacuum hose 1 at a time and listen for the cylinder to short out and die and drop in r.p.m. They should all be about equal. If 1 or a few don't drop or do anything than you have your dead cylinder there.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I replaced the spark plugs & spark plug wires with new & noticed the wire was totally melted on the left side of the engine (if you are standing in front of the car) right next to the exhaust...


Sounds like the wire was touching the exhaust manifold and was melted by the heat. There is usually a plastic thing that you clamp the wires into that keeps them from touching the exhaust manifold.
If theres not one of those things on your car, then use a zip tie or a piece of wire to tie the spark plug wire away from the exhaust manifold onto something above the wire on the cylinder head, throttle cable or something like that.

Where are the timing marks on ford ascape 2001 v6 3.0


On the crankshaft:

Timing Lights There are two basic kinds of timing lights--DC powered timing lights, which operate from your vehicle's battery, and AC powered timing lights, which operate on 110 volt house current. Of the two, the DC light is preferable because it produces more light to see the timing marks in bright daylight. Regardless of what kind is used, the light normally connects in series with the No. 1 spark plug using an adapter. Models that are more expensive sometimes use an inductive pickup, which simply clamps around the plug wire and senses firing impulses. Inexpensive models use alligator clips; one clamps onto the connection between the plug and the plug wire, and the others clamp onto the vehicle battery terminals. NOTE: Some timing lights will not work on electronic ignition systems, so unless you still own a vehicle equipped with points, check to make sure the timing light you buy will work. The biggest problem you will probably have when using a timing light is trying to see the timing marks on the crankshaft pulley. Before you time the engine, mark the appropriate timing indicators with fluorescent paint or chalk. Stay out of direct sunlight when you time the engine and buy a timing light with a xenon light, not a neon light. Timing lights that use a xenon tube provide a much brighter flash than those that use a neon tube do. Fig. 1: A modern electronic timing light. Note the inductive pick-up clamp. 88521p22.jpg

Set timming


You will need a timing light for Hi energy ignition as well as standard socket set or wrenches. 1. get the engine up to operating temp. 2 shut off engine connect the timing light to the number one[1] spark plug wire at the spark plug end connect battery connectors. 3 start engine and note location of pointer on the mark tab on the timing cover. 4 shut off engine loosen the hold down clamp on the distributor turn the bolt no more than one full turn[snug is better than loose here] then note the position of the dist. cap. Move the dist. to make sure it moves freely replace back to the starting position and remove and plug the vaccum line to the dist. 5 start engine and set timing to the desired spec. 6 shut off engine tighten dist. clamp bolt 7 start engine check timing one more time to see if still there at desired setting. 8 shut off engine dis-connect all tools and light
