Did it run before?
Check to see if engine has fuel at carburetor and if it's getting spark at the spark plugs. If both fuel and spark are good then the problem could be with the timing settings or timing belt/chain is worn out/broken.
The spark timing must conform to the increase in rpm's of the engine. If the timing does not advance as the speed increases, the spark will not happen at the correct time during the exhaust stroke.
Your engine timing is off.
no the plugs just delivers the spark. you only need to do timing if u pull the distributor out of the block or do a timingChan or if the distributor slips
You change plugs because the continual sparking erodes the electrode, which slowly retards the ignition timing, which then makes the engine run inefficiently,
No. Ignition timing is totally controlled electronically, and changing plugs will not have a direct effect. You can always check it with a timing light if you want, but there's nothing to adjust.
That year does not have 1. The timing is computer controlled and you MUST have an engine scanner to set the timing on that engine. A timing light will not work.
By advancing or retarding the spark.
Does it have spark?, Compression? Timing?
Check engine compression Check engine timing
The timing for this engine is electronically controlled and not adjustable
It advances and retards the engine timing as needed.
one is on the cam gear and the other is on the crank timing belt gear. spark timing is on the crank to the rear of the engine
I need more information about year, make, engine size.
On a 1998 daewoo matiz after doing a few jobs on it ,it wouldn't start.so i checked the spark from the dizzy cap no spark while turning the engine over. the reason turned out to be the ignition key.got another one and hey presto starts first time.if your engine is sparking then it could only be the belt timing out.so check the timing or better still get someone else to look at it as you may not see where you went wrong .ged
electronic spark timing is your distributor.
that's funny because I have a 350 Chevy engine that's is doing that as we speak.theres a few reasons it could be doing that. It could be something as simple as getting carb cleaner and cleanin your carb cause when it gets even a spec of dirt in there it can cause it to backfire.if that doesnt work try changing the spark plugs and if that doesnt work than you have a deeper problem which would be that your timing is off which is what wrong with mine.
An engine needs three things to run, fuel, timing, and spark. Check spark first (it's easiest) pull a plug and crank the engine. If spark isn't your problem check your fuel fiter, pump, etc... Fuel is the next most likely and easiest to fix. Good luck!
Check for a spark at the plugs. A lack of spark could be bad spark plugs or coil or the timing system. It could also indicate an anti-theft device not resetting or an engine management problem. If the spark is good it could still be a timing fault although it is more likely to be a fuel issue.
timing off, spark plugs need changing take it in and have it looked at
Try changing your spark plugs, and your spark plug wires.
Timing an engine requires that it have spark plugs, a diesel engine only has glow plus, no timing required. Now, if the valve to piston timing is off, you will need to replace the timing belt or chain, aligning the timing marks then. Get a repair manual like a Chilton's.
You need a timing light, hooked to the #1 spark plug, pointed at the timing mark on the main pulley on the front of the engine.
i suggest changing the distributor. i had erratic timing for a while, during cruising speed the emgine would chug here and there. One day I decided to replace the distributor cured my erratic timing, and stopped the chugging.
try changing the spark plug wires also
