pulled off 2 spark plug wires to my motor and there was no change in the motor. How is that possible?

Asked by Jul 18, 2017 at 08:07 AM about the 1971 Volkswagen Beetle Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


Logic would say those two cylinders weren't doing anything to make the motor run. My question is how can a two cylinder engine even run with half the cylinders going along for a free ride? Pull off the other two and see what it does.
