I dont think plug gap is your problem .the machine only gets used once a year but yet it has gas in it all year round and that gas does go bad with time, so i would suggest you replace all the gas, if its a 2 stroke you need to mix it with 2 stroke oil the spark plug just needs drying use a cigarette lighter to burn off the wetness at the tip if plug is two seasons old you might as well replace it cost maybe 3 dollars and you eliminate guess work

1990 Cadillac Seville won't start. Is it the electronic control module?


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

No codes rough idel fills like running on 4 cly exhaust smells good feul pressure new plugs coils firing hard start


You could have a bad spark plug wire, not allowing all your cylinders to fire. make sure the spark plugs are gapped correctlly, they don't always come pre-gapped,check your timing, and your firing order, if just one sparkplug wire is out of place it can make your car sound like its falling apart. good luck!

You always have to at least check spark plug gap

In 47 years, I have never seen a set of plugs that were not
knocked around & the ground electrode bent, on at least
a couple of them

You can clean a rotor & cap & get 3 years out of them,
no need to replace until they get too corroded

Wires last 15 years no problem
Don't get caught up in all the hype & tune-up non sense

The gap is on the radiator support label

The coil has to be tested,you don't throw parts at a problem

If it doesn't start, it has nothing to do with rotor,cap,plugs or wires

You could throw away 2 plugs & it would start on 6

Replaced sparkplugs and sparkplug wires, now runs rough. I checked connections all tight. check firing orger, looks right. run good till I touched it. Help.


Check the firing order with the firing order diagram that I have uploaded, and if that does not solve the problem then remove the spark plugs and be certain that there is an even spark plug gap between all of the spark plugs, (see the emission label under the hood for the correct spark plug gap) and be certain that there is not any split-fire or multi-fire spark plugs installed in the engine, because those plugs will not work with an OBD-II system, and a random mis-fire is the least that they will cause if installed in an OBD-II controlled vehicle.

1997 Honda vf750c turning over but not starting


In order for it to start, you need to find out if it got spark and fuel. If you thinks it fuel, you could try a small shot of starting fuild into the air filter box. If it fires and then dies out it definitly lacking fuel. If it does fire up with starting fluid, you need to check spark. Remove one of the plug wires and install a spark plug on it. Gorund the plug to engine by resting it on a metal part. Locate the plug as to be able to see the gap on the plug. Crank engine over and check for spark at the gap. If no spark check kill switch. Ed
