Try running it on a colder range of spark plugs. One with a shorter porcelain insulator around the central electrode. This runs the heat away from the electrode more efficiently and should eliminate the hot spot. Kohler recommend their own OEM plugs, the part number is 359979. Compare that with other plugs and see if you can match up a colder version.

I have a 2005 ford e-coline van when running and going over 25 mph it shuts off i have to turn key off and restart

this might be a worn throttle position sensor because if it runs at idle and then when you increase with gas peddle there could be a worn spot in the sensors contact also if this is a drive by wire throttle body(throttle motor with a plug on it and no lever for manual throttle increase this also could be bad you must have a check engine light on if not when you first turn the key for power///NOT CRANKING ///check to see if all dash warning lights come on in the self test of the system the bulb could be burned out for the check engine light if so go to auto zone or advance auto and they will scan your system for trouble codes to give you a better idea post back with results and progress and we will go further if needed you did not specify what E van 150-450 and motor size 4.6--5.4gas------6.0 diesel so I'm assuming that it's gas please be specific if you post back all of us here need this info for trying to help you remember your there in front of the vehicle we are not here is a couple of pics for you this is the throttle body motor and you would get a check engine light and a wrench sign on the dash warning lights
this is the throttle position sensor below check engine light will be on
26381095-lw30xb3gqn3gwqtvkpmbzy1k-1-2.jpg there is also the possibility of really warn spark plugs that are way out of gap and the engine can only run under light rpm load and when rpms increase the spark plug electrode gap is to far out and the heat from the plug firing inside the head is making expand even more and thus no spark plugs firing and no rpm increase and engine dies look at the plugs first and check the gap then go further as described above good luck Stephen

49cc no spark

What make, model, year is the bike??? The coil likely has no gap to set. Do you have a points type ignition system?? The spark plug and any other gap(s) will always be critical so do not rely on a bit of business card or other thing unless you know it is of the correct or close to the correct thickness to achieve the proper gap. With points if the gap is to large the dwell will not be sufficient to allow an adequate voltage rise and if the spark plug gap is too small it will allow a weak spark to jump too soon and if it is too large the spark may never reach a high enough voltage to bridge the gap. It could be so weak, so low voltage that it will not bridge a spark plug gap or you will not see it or otherwise evidence it because it is so weak. If there is spark but weak and the bike will not fire this is exacerbated with increasing compression pressure as it will be harder for the spark plug to fire/spark as required with increased pressure. With some bikes if you have both of two spark plugs disconnected ie wires not grounded at the plug end there will be no spark produced. That is another reason why bike information is needed to properly address your question. Also one would like to know how you are testing for spark? You also should provide some history of the problem and why you have done whatever you have done so far?

What is the proper spark plug gap in a mazda 6s

Don't think you will notice difference . I would set to .035 because the gap will increase with use ,the electrode ware away over time .044 ?.

Hard to start, when i get it started it fine shut it off try to start it hard to start

General advice aplicable for all gas powered chain saws;
Clean air filter regularly.
-Adjust spark plug gap (very important). A faulty gap will either cause poor spark or a overloaded and damaged spark plug coil.
-Use correct good quality spark plug
-Use correct oil/fuel mix ratio and correct oil.
-Do not use old premixed fuel if you can avoid it.

Carburator adjustment;
-idle speed setting screw should be set so that the saw idles well, without engaging the chain. If you normally have to press the gas lever to be able to start it coul indicate a to low seting. Clockwise will increase idle speed. This screw is found near the carburator and is slightly larger the the two adjusment screws.
- fuel-air mixture screws can be set to standard factory setting as a start. Normally there are 2 screws labeled L and H, for Hi and Low rpm band adjustments. Factory setting are usually 3/4 turn out(anti clockwise) from fully closed setting for both (clockwise to closed position).
Experiment with adjustments by 1/8 increments at the time. Anti clockwise turning will increase fuel to air ratio and opposite. Warm weather will require a slightly leaner mix and cold weather will reqire a slightly richer mix(more fuel). Low rpm setting only serves the idling performance. The Hi rpm setting can be evaluated by removing the spark imediately after running at full load for a period. The spark plug should be dry, and be lightly brownish at the electrodes. White-ish color indicates low fuel to air mix, and this causes too high combustion temperature. A black colour indicates a too high fuel to air mix ratio, and it causes carbon build up on the plug.

If you still have starting problems, cylinder/piston compression is the next to check for. This is a more extensive job and should best be left to professionals, unless you are very skilled and have access to special tools required. Compression on modern saws are very delicately balance, so the slightest damage to either the rings, piston or cylinder can cause problems. Is is not alwas worth to replace the cylinder and piston kit, so compare prices and ask for advice at your dealer.

I hope this helps you.

John Deere 445 Garden Tractor, starts immediately,

could be bad gas, but it sounds like a choke problem. did it sit over the winter with less than a half tank of gas in it. try putting some rubbing alcohol in the fuel or draining the tank and disconnecting the gas line so you can drain the gas out of the carb. also check the gap of the spark plug and make sure that is correct. when was the last time there was fresh oil put in. also check the air filter, it could be full of dirt.

Engin developes diesel knock followed by the engin management light comes on

Assuming the engine timing is'nt the problem; you may have a fouled spark plug, bad spark plug wire, or excessive carbon build-up on the valves and pistons etc. Make sure all fluid levels are where they should be. Try replacing the spark plugs and wires. Look in your operator's manual in the specs sections and make sure the spark plugs that are installed are gapped properly. Improperly gapped spark plugs or split-fire ( can't be gapped) spark plugs are known to cause engine issues. Make sure to use dielectric grease when connecting the spark plug boots to the spark plugs; and the wires to the distributor. Also run a couple bottles of fuel system or injector cleaner and water remover through several tanks of gas to remove any possible excessive carbon build-up. Hope this helps. God bless!
