According to one of Fords websites : For the 2.3 liter four cylinder engine in a 1989 Ford Tempo : ( the spark plugs are gapped at .054 inch )

Some auto parts retail websites have spark plug wiring diagrams. One of them, AutoZone, shows the spark plug wiring diagram for the 1993 Ford Tempo 3.0 liter 6-cylinder model.

The spark plug torque spec range is between 6 and 10 ft/lbs.

1988 kx 250 not getting good spark now what can i do

User Avatar

not to sure to be honest if it has a spark plug the spark when fitten to the engine could be shorting to earth before the spark reaches the cylinder( ignition of the fuel) could be worth a try changing them

User Avatar

If getting fuel and spark, then need compression and air.

User Avatar

sometimes fire gets so hot that it bursts and brings out a tiny spark.

If your Honda CRV cranks but won't turn over because the spark plugs are not getting spark, ensure the wires are connected. A loose spark plug wire can cause this issue.

Simple your not getting spark from the spark plugs. i recomend getting someone that knows how to check for spark because there is a lot of items you have to check.

User Avatar

If you're not getting spark from the distributor, see if you're getting spark from the ignition coil. If there's no spark there, then the coil is either bad, or it's not wired up correctly.

User Avatar

A: Do you mean firing order? If so on a 2.3 liter it is 1-3-4-2.

User Avatar

Absolutely, although most auto parts stores will sell you plugs that are gaped correctly. Sometimes they are not and therefore there is not enough spark for the air and gas mixture. This will cause vibration as the gas is not getting burned.

User Avatar

You need three thing, gas, air and spark for it to start. I would first check to see if you are getting spark. Remove a spark plug and lay it on the engine with the spark plug wire attached and have someone try the starter again. If you see a spark, then that's ok. Got gas? You may be able to spray some starter fluid into the air intake while the engine is turning over to see if it will fire. If it does the problem may be the fuel pump. Good luck
