wut wat: Hi, Scotty. I checked my spark plugs after watching this video but I got sparks for all four spark plugs but they looked all thin and yellow and weak not like those sparks in this video. Does that mean I have ignition problems? I am having a engine cranking but no start problem. Tomorrow I will do the starting fluid test but I pulled out all four spark plugs but they all looked and smelled like soaked with gasoline and black. Does that mean I have no fuel problem to those spark plugs? Thanks. I hope you can answer those two questions. I forgot to tell you that when I crank the engine it sometimes back fires.

strikewolf42: What about a situation where the car will only start if I have my foot on the gas, and will only stay on if I have my foot on the gas? If I take it off it dies and if I don't put it on to begin with it won't start, it's a 1998 Honda Accord V6.

Dhaka Music: dear scotty

I am having trouble with my x corolla 2002.
1. when i blow my horn in gear & in slow speed like 1kmph with ac on the car shuts down
2 when i turn the wheels full left or right it shakes & shuts down

3 the starter doesn't work all the time a mechanic bypassed it with a relay is it ok? he says the original wiring cannot handle the high amps needed anymore

roadrunnervs godzilla: Here is a good one for you Scotty,
I got a 57 plymouth with a BB 383. I had a problem with it only running 7 cylinders. I tested with timing light and one leads was dead. So I swapped it out. Still dead. Then I noticed with the lead disconnected from the plug and fitted to a spare plug the lead fired fine. When I reconnected to the engine dead again?? So I switched the plug out and the lead fired. Then I tested the plug i removed and it was fine. All the plugs where about 2 weeks old.
this has happened to me twice on two different cylinders on different days.
I never come across this before ever? A far as i know the leads should fire regardless if they are connected to the plugs or not. I also noticed if i just rested lead on the non firing plug it fired. Soon as i locked it down. Dead again. Wtf is going on? I have asked mechanics and others in the know. No one has giving in a explanation why??

Jose Felix: PLEASE HELP!! Hello my 96 ranger cranks but won't turn on. I've changed the battery, alternator, fuel filter and crank shaft sensor after it started doing that. About a little less than a year ago I changed the spark plugs and and wires when it actually ran. I can figure out what is wrong with it. Sometimes it turns on and stays on as long as I keep giving it some gas and it will drive if I don't let go off the gas but that is sometimes. I saw sparks come from the spark plugs so idk what it could I can also hear the fuel pump turn on and I saw that it had pressure so Idk what else it could be please if you can help me I'd really appreactiate it.
