If I had to guess this sounds like a four cylinder engine, with one or even two cylinder's misfiring. Best guess is a problem with either a spark plug wires, or an ignition module. I'm looking at high resolution photos of your engine compartment and its not clear on what type of ignition system you have. Generally there are two types of systems. One has a ...

Sounds more like a problem with the ignition switch, possibly some kind of interference with the steering wheel lock. Do you usually park on the street with your wheels turned? If so, maybe try to make sure your wheels are pointed straight before you shut off the car. This should take the binding out of the steering linkage and put less stress on the ...

Make sure to check all of the safety features that were included on the bike. Kickstand up, in neutral, clutch in, kill switch set to run, and key on.

If the engine is cold, there is no way the combustion chamber is going to get up to 160 degrees C. even when the air is compressed. So your problem is with the fuel system; either the fuel pump, or something in the fuel injection system.

You could try unhooking the cable at the handle and then tie a loose knot in it. This may make the cable too short. In that case you could drill a hole in the safety handle bail a little further up. I'm fairly certain it's not adjustable at either end. The proper repair requires replacing the cable. Believe it or not, sears.com has an incredible range ...

First off, yes the starter solenoid is attached to the starter motor. And yes from your description it sure sounds like a problem starter. Are you doing this work yourself, or having it done? First have you checked ALL fuses and relays in the system? Do that first. There is likely two different fuse boxes to contend with, one inside the passenger ...

Double check everything. If you can power the S terminal on the starter and get the car to start than it's on the other side of the circuit. Pull the relay again and make sure when someone presses the clutch the relay coil is grounded. Check your fuses, the relay should have power on two pins, one that powers the relay coil while cranking and one that ...

Please stop testing your starter with a screwdriver! You could get hurt. A simple volt-meter or multi-meter is a good investment for a home mechanic. Is your starter cable fused? Check the fuse with your new multi-meter and then you can check the voltage back to the battery negative post. It's possible the earth strap has come off your engine and there's no ...

Should start similar to a car. There may be a push button to start, but most trucks don't have that anymore. The knob marked tractor will release the brakes as soon as their pressure builds up to around 90. Drives similar to manual car. Leave the small lever on the shifter in the downward position. Reverse is towards the steering wheel and then straight ...

There may be a lead plate weld broken inside the battery. I would try a new battery, or at least determine if the battery is taking a charge before trying anything else. You can measure the OCV "open circuit voltage" of the battery by connecting a voltmeter between the positive and negative terminals of the battery with the the car completely off. And NO ...

Start by checking ground terminals coming off your battery. While this may not be the issue I can't tell you how many times I've found bad connection to be an issue with starters on my cars and for years it was something I consistently overlooked. If the connections are too loose or really corroded that can cause a huge resistance spike which will cut the ...
