What would cause a 2 stroke engine to not get spark?
This can be caused by many things. Kill or ignition switch shorted, a wire to them gone to ground, ignition coil bad, stator bad, plugs. Need more info to determine cause. Check if you have spark on one plug if there are more than one.
Fire refers to spark in an internal combustion engine. When a vehicle's ignition switch is on, direct current voltage from the battery passes through wires to the coil which amplifies the voltage and the distributor passes this high energy to the spark plugs at the engine cylinders at a precise time as the piston approaches the top of its compression stroke. The spark plug has gap between its electrode and its grounded body. When the…
As you did not say which vehicle this can only be a general answer Unlikely that a faulty coil would cause an engine to knock. Very possible it would cause bucking, if the coil is failing there would be a lack of spark. This would cause bucking/missfire, which may cause the engine to shake on it's mountings possibly causing a knock from contact with the vehicle frame.
There is not a lot of information to go on from the question as posted. When an engine is in proper operating condition, the spark plugs should not be "wearing out", on a regular basis. From the information at hand, I would suspect the wrong heat range plug is being used. Check to see what spark plug the engine manufacturer recommends for your engine.
Lots of things, most of them engine problems ( assuming you your parking brake is not set on and your tires all have air.) The cheapest to fix would be badly adjusted or worn carbuerator and/or spark plugs and spark plug wires - this is what the typical engine tune-up would fix. More serious engine probles such as bad piston rings or warped valves would cause slow acceleration and would require an over-haul.
Yes, a bad distributor can cause the engine to fail to run, the distributor (distributes) a spark to the spark plugs that ignite the air/fuel mixture, if it is malfunctioning there might be no spark at all, there may be spark at only a few spark plugs, or the output may be intermittently bad which can make troubleshooting difficult.
Many things can cause this problem. Spark plugs and/or Spark Plug wires are 2 of the most frequent problems. Has your check engine warning light come on? You should have the engine fault codes checked. Auto Zone does this for free as do other parts suppliers. If the engine misses, then the computer senses this and at low speed or stopping the engine will stall. I hope this helps
That would depend on whether the engine is a 2-stroke or a 4-stroke. You can determine by looking for an oil filler spout or filler cap on the engine. If it has one, the engine is a 4-stroke and the oil is added through there. If it doesn't have one, the engine is a 2-stroke and 2-cycle oil must be added to the fuel in the recommended ratio.
On a waste spark system you should use double platinum plugs. Because the cylinders fire on the compression stroke on the positive side and the exhaust stroke on the negative side, copper plugs would burn out very fast. As an example, double platinum plugs are advertised as 100,000 plugs, but I wouldn't go past 50,000 miles due to the possibility of the plug getting stuck in the engine. The copper plug on the same engine…
Why would the spark plugs on a 350 Chevy engine be glowing every time the cylinder fires when the engine is running and how can the problem be fixed?
the fuel pump needs replacing, might be in fuel tank. To test if this is the cause. Squirt some gas into the throttle opening and try to start car, if it almost starts or feels like it will then that is the cause Another View: If you have both spark and fuel at the injectors AND th engine is cranking - before doing to the expense of replacing the fuel pump I would check the…
