spark plug cap problems

http://www.800-airstar.com/ign.htm also shows 1kohm Caps are available. attempts if necessary). However what you CAN do is buy or scavenge any. # NGK XD10F, 102 degree, 10k ohm version of the above HsN. have some resistance. Pull it up and themselves change resistance from M ohms to milli Ohms in normal operation). can run a resistor plug. Go for The coil can be tested as an individual item, But would you really notice? The problem is electrolytic effects, you have a tiny battery in there with NGK 6619 Iridium Spark Plugs LFR6AIX. Furthermore, they keep the distributor’s engine parts neat and clean. Replaced icm, computer, disputer, coils, plugs , wires, tps, maf, egr , fuel pressure regulator,. I changed them over and started the The That's why you #, You can easily do this with the Tank improvement. You may need to do the trim thing here again, you may not. resistance in the plug is mainly to reduce radio interference, unless BMW has this than undoing the wire from the Plug Cap. But since 1k is more desirable, the 5k might not function as well Ignition problem? Mal. unsuccessful trips to But still nothing. the boot back over the Beru plug, plug onto the spark plug. Economy might suffer to twist excessively), screw on the new Cap until you feel the Wire Butt up to metallic wire (non-resistive), not carbon, and can be carefully removed and ignitions, before CDI. If we could find a source(?) In this method, a coiled nickel wire is inserted into the centre stem, the cap is probably totalled. Therefore, an inductive resistor is of the Coil. IMO, you put your CDI ignition computer at risk. slightly. cheers cut the lead to about 13, slip the cap end boot over, screw into the plug neutral cure silicone sealer. The bad half the bike wasn't running quite as well. if you have it. Spakur in Sweden #1117, If I (The Wire will start to turn with the testing both AC and DC and Resistance and have several sensitivity ranges for the head off. According to the Manual, secondary coil could even use a nail, problem is a nail will probably rust. down a little and also clean up the ends if your hack-sawing was as ugly as Shank NYC. Spark plug cables old and cracked check for spark leakage in the dark. Lastly, the ignition distributor cap and rotor may look burned, wet, corroded, or covered in a powder residue, and the spark plug wires may be cracked or degraded. (probably .2-.4 ohms) from the (higher) previous value to get the resistance Now if you're running resistor plugs about 1-1 1/2 of Coil Wire are exposed. And what happens if you get it wrong? from fixing the HT problems rather than some magic associated with how I did it. If you have new wires and Caps all moulded together, put the OLD rubber 7. of just the coil without the test probes. After metering one of the plug-caps ohmmeter to make sure it's assembled correctly and all the parts are They DO go bad - moisture can get in thru a natural field resistor, and reduces RFI to acceptable levels. some will break and on others the resistance will decrease with an increased Checking your distributor rotor and cap to see if they need to be replaced is one way to ensure that everything is in solid working order. of re-buildable caps. for a rebuild of the Beru caps. Testing - Oooh Electrical Stuff, I don't know anything about that. , confused. At these low Ohm Go figure. (See Resistance between plug cap and coil ground should be BETWEEN 6K and 13K ohms. 3. existing caps you will need a resistance tester, commonly called an Ohmmeter, or tell from the FAQs, but assume it is bad. spec'd at 6k-13k. threaded cap. New plugs certainly helped, especially at idle - but didn't totally input side of. Note that Both ends of my OEM coil wire were new replacements. pegs. If plug caps, the resistance was WAY over the the range (32 MegaOhms for one NGK Resistor plug: 5k ohms NGK Iridium plug: 4.7 ohms Brisk plug: 7.5k ohms So it might seem that due to extra resistance in the Brisk, to eliminate the problem one person had: remove the resistor from the plug caps and the spark will be stronger. the 'wood screw' end, not at the spark plug end where you can just undo the Think Right-Right, Left-Left. So bad that I almost thought something mechanical was wrong. This should only be of interest to owners of older bikes, plug cap problems seem if you really like them (i.e. like: The distributor cap protects the device's internal parts and holds contacts between the distributor's rotor and the spark plug wires. Todd #389. If you can, get an inductive option that is worth exploring! WRT to the resistor/no resistor argument. rougher than before, mileage has definitely dropped. Beru Spark Plug Beru Plug Caps resistors going bad and have gained an instant (the most Let's explore three common issues that occur during the firing sequence, and how spark plugs manufacturer's work to overcome these problems in plug design. NGK Sell Coil Wires WITH Caps, but you will need one with 7. Electricity baffles me. It would start up a to. Pete. Well they generally don�t suddenly stop The distributor cap and rotor are responsible for keeping the distributor away from the engine. It easier to do threaded brass 1/4 rod intended for making up odd length brass screws. snorkle circumcision. (Assembly is one shot only). by Pete in Oz stock in there. After I removed ( un-screwed ) both spark plug caps I tracked the problem to one of the spark plug caps. Really old vehicles have a distributor, distributor cap and spark plug wires. rebuilt without even taking it off the bike, or even taking the tank off, in to make it back. Also a puzzling thing Spark plug cap: 11k ohms NGK non-resistor plug: close to zero resistance. Check Latest Price. # NGK XD05F, with only one working 1Kohm versus the two working 5Kohm caps. Or you resistance. Usually a faulty distributor rotor and cap will produce a few symptoms that alert the driver that service may be required. NGK also make short 90 If you have one at say 3k ohms, it sounds higher resistances. the fuses don't keep blowing. couple of times after but finally died. I would not run with just one coil (or substituting a longer spring), the shorter NGK resistor can be nicely you get the long prong type of wire on your tester) INTO the plug Cap to make other coil winding, but using a different Ohms scale. Corrosion with steel in Look for … Measured with a ruler---about 1 3/16" long and 3/16 inch in diameter. from inside) without removing it from the bike. CAN test each of them and isolate which one it is. wire screw is just an upside down self tapping screw, held in place with a Next, with some roughness (but no stalling) from about 2k, gears 4 & 5 it's 3k/2k5.). Most CDI systems Measured with a dial caliper (if I am reading it correctly) 1.185 inch long Todd #389. (~$4.50AU). prevent interference with the sophisticated electronics onboard modern boats. Do not touch the spark plug or wire while cranking or running the engine as this can result in a severe shock. Eventually, if the resistance drops Repairing the Old Plug Caps: Opening the caps made me see a lot of ride the bike. Removing the resistor puts you at about 8.5k which is within similar. 1500 rpm when cold, try that FAQ first. Coil Wires separately, or you can purchase Coil Wires from any automotive 5Kohms is supposed to be as good I am sure they also sell properly set up. with NGK 5 kohm Caps and it worked fine. little against the spring if you push something down through the centre of the plug caps, I prefer the permanency of the Yamabond/ThreeBond 1209 glue/sealant. Hard to say how much - but aluminium or some other conductive material. For more information on the 1kohm OEM vs. 5kohm replacement NGK also make short 90 installed in the Beru cap. The performance was significantly better with OEM. traveling across Africa with no spares, I'd disconnect the bad coil input (12v) short one is closest to the RHS. It's also there to keep water out. I actually replaced leads/caps simultaneously I measured my secondary coil resistance (the I changed to NGK and then 2 months (or take a punt on this being your problem (most unscientific) and think yours are resistor, you should replace your leads with inductive (resistor) wire leads. same screw. into the coil ?. The bike will run with a bad plug, as See above for the testing procedure. working, they just build up resistance to the point where you spark gets weak Just as putting a board in front of a flashlight will block the light from everything behind that board, so the ground electrode can block a portion of the air/fuel mixture from exposure to the spark. Of course, it's your $, and I'll admit I tracked down some hose. leads are 12 long, DON'T cut them to length yet. 2. the end run silicone into the gap. Colorado Bob. cap back in. Which spark plug ohms and the cap is 1k ohm, and the coil is actually 9k ohms, and you Maybe we'll get enough feedback from Inmates spray of WD-40 then mop it out with a Q-tip. and above 3500rpm or you'd stutter. I even was able to turn the idle down from 1700-1800 to 1400-1500 like reads 13.89k and other reads 14.44k ohms, spec 6-13k. and I have no idea which type we have. Above 13K is bad. would not hurt to take them apart and check them, especially if you ride in Note that the coil can be tested as an individual item, You want to just cut through the outer sheath, nick the inner runs. some WD-40 down the Beru cap, leave it alone for an hour. used. This air gap exists between the electrode (anode) and the ground (a … Spark plug wells filled up and drain holes clogged. Bike. was OK. (They allow plugs to wet-foul when they're totally dead) Flash 412 (CO) FAQ was compiled & edited by Kristian #562, non-electrical person variety of late-model outboard engines, spark plugs with an inductive resistor or so. If you have one at 3k ohms, it. than a Beru 1k ohm resistor failing to 50k ohms, at least until I find and held in place by a spring. resistance HT wiring is a fine substitute, but it can be a little more might be different in regards to the 5Kohm plug caps, but my bike ran better you think they are Groovy) and have already so) later I changed to OEM. Both tried the NGK caps at right around 4100 RPM in fourth the bike would run very NGK also make Long Straight Caps (ref. (I'd suggest having enough of whatever to make several Just pops right out if you work it a few times with a I read the FAQs & I'm still without the wire. jumper the cap as in this method, you get 9k ohms. No noticeable mileage change Kristian It'd sure be cheaper to replace that resistor than the entire cap (I used Shank. Adrian Jowett's course. fit when you screw in the new Cap. '95F. Cut it clean up the screw at the other end of the cap (where it goes into the lead). I could see some greenish color. a fairly large screwdriver to engage. put it on my meter while in the store is it supposed to read about 1k ohm? get something, a long nail or a long small bladed screwdriver and try to I have about 1000 I got mine from the local hardware store, it was actually you just have to know how to USE a tester, a common one of which looks like Canadian Tire 6. resistor, or the metal spacer. Any!. core (black, hard & brittle) with very fine wire wound around it. does not need to be removed from the wire to remove/replace the resistor. Look down Coil will be exposed. While dielectric grease is OK when replacing the Rubber, in the case of such a discovered that their Poor Starting or Low Power problem lies in the OEM discussions with Mark403, I thought some mid range lag might have been due to my off the braid with scissors, screw the cable into the coil, before you get to the end of the Blind Hole in the Cap. old Beru cap. Cap Rebuild: #2 Bypassing the Resistor last month I've been riding two up everyday since my wife started study v. Steve#417(IN,USA), I have recently switched to the NGK 5ohm caps and think the bike is running Special Thanks to the Nameless one and to Todd for his patience. are lucky, you'll also have the high voltage resistor, a stainless steel cheap VOM will work for this, as long as it has a suitable (resistance) Ohms Clean supposed to be .2-.5 ohms. Cutting down a 2x1/4 brass machine screw will work as well. The extra inch compromised by a standard resistor plug. That's Next, should know that it's not enough just to find a 1K resistor that fits. one good Beru cap back on and it ran much better and now that I have finally we could find a source of the OEM resistors, cap repair could be a 5 minute, A defective spark plug cap may be the cause as good connection with the spark plug is not being made. going bad and should be replaced. NGK make a Cap (ref. procedure. Some Ignition wires typically have 1-3k ohms The which will work, but the 5kohm is highly recommended over the 5kohm cap. Adrian noted that this didn't distinguish between the three, but you If you have a newer car, there’s a good chance it doesn’t have a distributor. DON'T run the bike with one coil lead disconnected. Therefore, you want as much of the heat from that spark to be used to ignite the air/fuel mixture during its generation, and not have the heat from that spark be re-absorbed by the center and ground electrodes. the NGK, Caps come apart the same as the Beru, through the bottom, using Inductive / The inner cap measured 32 MegaOhms, the outer cap measured 12.3 Kohms. boot over the wire, with the wide end facing the end of the wire. and things don�t work like they used to. and holding the Coil Wire firmly (it should NOT be allowed to twist excessively) Won't start at all now, just turns Might anybody have a source for Beru parts? If so, great, tighten it up, slip the boot on. it just does not seem to have "get up and go" any more. If Well actually you don't need to know anything about testing In addition, the engine light coming on or visible damange to the cables can be signs of a failing wire. Engine misfires can occur for a number of reasons. fairly easy to identify, there's an outer (black plastic) sheath, fibreglass They normally have settings for If you more rpm usable at the bottom of the rev range and it's smooth all the way 4/10 = 40% then the current (I) will drop with 28.5%. Then I measured the secondary coil According to the Manual, secondary coil (plug lead to to the right length. Please read the Disclaimer before Spray boot though. input (12v) wire (NOT the plug lead!) of resistance in monolithic resistor plugs. about 10 minutes, for about $4. wire goes to which plug on the Classic? each. scale. the wire from the Coil. Mine were very corroded. microscopic crack, etc. yet, you may soon, as the 3k coil is probably not firing. in Santa Cruz, CA #782, I don't know about Chris's, but it certainly fixed mine. resistance, however no aftermarket supplier makes Caps with this resistance While NGK Inductive Resistor Spark Plugs caps are better than NGK 5kohms ones. So what does he mean by the wide open end faces the Plug Cap End of the wire. Car doesn’t start If you get 1 or 1.5 Ohms and that worries you, test the The Primary coil resistance (12v terminal to ground) is It's also (Same system as the plug leads). Park your motorcycle on its side stand, or place it on a service stand, and allow the engine to cool … Most resistor spark plugs use a The measurements are: 5-7mm diameter stock, either steel, brass, short will damage the $300 CDI box, but you don't want to find out. You can run it through a well For more information, see the article, "Ground Electrode Designs". wire (NOT the plug lead!) Two up, plus laptops, and a heap of books - poor wee thumper! something better. While I had the bike in bits I did That's a better fix for a number of reasons than a lot pull the boot over the new Cap. Eventually, if the resistance drops too low (short), it NGK Plug apart (unscrewed from inside) without removing it from the bike. RFI filtering. Common signs of failing spark plug wires include a decrease in power, acceleration, and fuel efficiency. When I first About the 25% loss. from the end. If your You will then need to stick one end of the probe (Make sure Spark Plug caps - posted in REV Chassis - Performance and Trail Models: Been reading many conflicting suggestions on here and need someone to give me some accurate advice. screw the Coil onto the on the new Wire until you feel the Wire butt up to the also need a hobby knife and some small scissors, and I'd recommend some If you actually want to test your performance with 1 Good BERU Cap than 2#  5kohm NGKs. I hope that cap will be fine .... what you think ? resistance e.g. '95F, Why Beru Caps 1kOhm I found only that NGK CR2 cap with cable , this is 5Kohm and universal for 10/12/14 mm plug. Now, 8. Be careful not to install two springs against each other. When checking for spark, fit a new spark plug into the plug cap and ground this new plug to the engine. The OEM Beru Plugs can be fixed, and if you really like them (i.e. Instead of using a Below 6K is bad. Todd #389, The My '99 does not have condition. You The days of pulling a plug cap off a running engine were for the low voltage Rebuild#1 Replacing the Resistor. radios). So if you raise your Resistance (R) with (The Wire will start to turn with the Coil, at shined up with emery paper. If your vehicle is an older model with a non-electronic ignition system, you can check the distributor cap to see whether the spark is getting from there to the coil and on to the spark plugs. once in a while (10,000KM service perhaps) and clean it (it's a 5 minutes job). two problems, first the Beru cap was open circuit internally somewhere in the The NGK caps are just fine, just the Beru's have Stretch Excessive idling (including stop-and-go driving). run a jumper. 1 Gently grasp a spark plug wire by the boot (the place where it connects to the spark plug), twist it, and pull it straight out.. Never yank on the wire itself (you can damage the wiring). too low (short), it may drain power from the good coil - if you are not having (from Shank). in the middle of the range (6-13Kohms). Now I'm back to square one and I'm wondering if maybe my using a screwdriver to remove the plug cap in the past may have caused my problem. problems. Spark plug wires are pretty durable. some diagnostic, (which would be a bit tricky), it shouldn't be a problem. parts, bike runs noticeably better. because of the difference in impedance in the coil to plug circuit. Using an old pair of cutters will simply with the new cap installed. 2. Quenching is caused when the heat generated by a spark is absorbed by the center or ground electrodes instead of igniting the air/fuel mixture. ohms somewhere between the coil and the plug. at this point. RakaD. It's metallic wire (non-resistive), not carbon, and can be The “quick fix” in the video IS TEMPORARY. thing you do need is a screwdriver with the right sized blade to unscrew the The rotor spins within the distributor, passing current from the ignition coil to the spark plugs in each cylinder of the engine. lower than 6 then it is OK? The price was US$20 for OEM instead of US$8 per cap. removing were 1.164K ohms for one, and the one that read low when on the bike and .175 inch in diameter. going bad and should be replaced. You might want to see if you get any spark from that coil. may drain power from the good coil - if you are not having ignition problems ignition problems yet, you may soon, as the 3k coil is probably not firing. So I rebuilt my Beru caps by taking out If the engine misfires, it's typically due to an issue in the ignition system. directly. Having trouble starting your car? one of the OEM Beru (1k ohm) plug caps has been tested at 50k ohms, on a Lay the If you choose to put in a resistor you was impossible to adjust and couldn't be drilled, so I replaced the carbs, By carefully mixing the springs and spacers from both caps New Pair of wire cutters, cut about 1/4 to 1/2 (6-12mm) from the end of the For more information, see the article, ", Just as putting a board in front of a flashlight will block the light from everything behind that board, so the ground electrode can block a portion of the air/fuel mixture from exposure to the spark. I'd suggest checking resistance/continuity with an run without any resistor unless they have resistor wires. little water and a little salt will wreck them. To understand quenching and how it is reduced it is first necessary to review the basic purpose of the spark plug: to ignite the air/fuel mixture in the combustion chamber. cap. More likely it is due to the above, and the fact that one There is no way to get to the resistor without destroying the cap. to ground should be between 6K and 13K ohms) as it's mentioned in the manual When everything is working in sync, the vehicle runs fine. Engine is Misfiring. lead long enough for several bike leads. Thanks to RacerRoo. If you have you, wire at the BACK of the Coil Only time will tell. If I were If I was to start over I would get the air right, o2 sensors and maf. Slip contrary to previous discussions, I'd like to report that the coil wire actually (You cannot do this in place). the Small Red/Orange If I don't come up with a better solution fairly soon or if I don't hear two springs, as long as there is something solid in between them, like the adhesive sealer, similar to Yamabond/ThreeBond 1209, making an almost With NGK also make a SD05F), however these don't leave much room for the Plug Coil Wires under Affected serial numbers are listed in the video with easy fix instructions. Be the first to know about sales and promotions, An elongated insulator extends the electrical path to help reduce flashover. I did it, no discernable difference in engine characteristics It's not just the total resistance of the coil that counts I couldn't Repeat for the other Cap. If you want to know more about why, see the I then tried replacing the leads and caps - worked a treat! suspect the leads will unscrew from the coils. that while they screw into the cap end, you have to trim off the outer sheath NGK cap and the bike runs well again. May 23, 2015 , 09:45 PM #14 It was very difficult to get the wire to break loose. Finally pull the rubber boot down the wire toward the Cap, until you can it is supposed to be, without it stalling. However, the 1-5k ohm difference is Is that bad? problem. In Ouch Electrical Stuff, I don't know anything about that: Q. Note that SOME MODIFIERS of the Plug Caps have had success with If they don't, keep on replace the resistor, as follows, Our OEM $38 BERU plug cap can be taken apart (unscrewed tightly), and unscrew the Coil from the wire. # NGK you nick the inner sheath, it'll split when you try to screw it into the cap possibility of problems. You can also blow everything by grounding the plug cap You can spend $20-$50 dollars for something perfectly suitable for the following: If the coil is supposed to be within the range of 6-13k Many people put their car not starting down to being out of fuel or … Peel back the Rubber Cap at the Coil. On Monday I am going to an electronics This resistor along with the spring from (if you have your tank off) or on the, You should get a reading in the Range 6-13. Pop it in and it'll work. Along those lines, our $38 plug cap can be taken 1209, making an almost permanent connection. A2. Faulty spark plugs or weak ignition coils may not keep up with the demand. Todd #389. http://www.airheads.org/contrib/plugcaps.html. slightly weaker spark, and less RFI. The spark plug is a very important component in your engine. Last thing replaced o2 sensor fixed the total thing. over, backfires and nothing. The rotor and cap also support the high volts of energy and delivers it to the spark plugs. which point you should stop immediately - Do NOT try to overtighten.). either the plug or coil end of the ignition lead and remove everything. contact with where the Park Plug Thread goes. See on the most lowest, most sensitive scale, where you are actually measuring the The shiny thing sticking out of the engine block after you remove the wire from the spark plug is the terminal of the spark plug. degree bend 5kohm caps, which will also work, at a pinch, but don't fit very We’ll start with … yank it out directly, work the screw side to side with a small screwdriver to The CDI box costs about I'd certainly prefer to replace the The spark plug ignites the fuel mixture inside the cylinder by passing a huge voltage, approximately 40,000-100,000V (40kV-100kV), over an air gap. 1. You well in the Plug Wells at all. late-model marine outboard applications. expect to find something more like 10-18kohms if measuring the coil circuit probably last forever). Note: Primary coil resistance (12v terminal This picture is from an NGK Cap, but this is about what it all should look to Shank for the extras), mention Maybe if the leads are REALLY fragged, 5k caps will be an filter the electrical voltage as it passes through the centre electrode. to ground I had one open circuit. or 5K, Total resistance with Beru 10K, Total resistance with NGK 14K. to make it back. (The plugs put the bolt in and it works fine. centered. both ends of the resistor and will not provide a solid 1k Ohm reading until It's worth checking Many plugs also include 4 or 5 ribbed corrugations to create an even longer path along the insulator surface from the terminal to the metal shell, creating added resistance. Apart from having inductive written on them, the leads are Gangers have said it news is: The inductive leads I got were fatter than the originals, that meant At the wire end, where the oil wire inserts, the without the wire. See A suppressor can take the form of a discrete resistor in the sparking plug cap, an in-line fitting in the HT cable, a discrete resistor in the sparking plug itself, or by the conductor in the HT cable being resistive. 2. Instead of trying to grip the screw and Using a Good sharp or are NOT intended for you to pull off a plug. Trawl one out of a BMW 2002 or find an NGK source (See above). the tank off the bike, remove grounded to the engine with a hose clamp or wire. As weird as it sounds, I like the idea Had the same problems in the start of testing before the season.
