Crank no start or no crank and no start?


If you washed the engine, you have to dry out all the electrical connections.


Try this. Use a hair dryer set to Hi....and at a distance of about 2 inches...dry the Distributor Cap and the Spark Plug Wires . Try drying out the area around the Spark Plug Boots and SP. Get back to us with results.

Hi after washing I got the blower vac on to it then the wd40 on all electrics, and has sat with the bonnet up for 2days of 30 degrees Celsius, checked all fuses, got me beat, thanks for any answers. Dave


Ok....it's back to the basics. Do you have a way to check for spark at the spark plugs. Can you carefully remove the distributor cap and check for moisture inside the distributor?
