IGNITION COIL INSPECTION

Ignition Coil Inspection

1. Perform the spark test and identify the malfunctioning cylinder. (See ENGINE CONTROL SYSTEM OPERATION INSPECTION).

2. Replace the ignition coil of the malfunctioning cylinder with that of a normal cylinder, and perform the spark test again. (See ENGINE CONTROL SYSTEM OPERATION INSPECTION).

SPARK PLUG REMOVAL/INSTALLATION

CAUTION:

1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.

CAUTION:

2. Remove the fresh-air duct and air cleaner as a single unit. (See INTAKE-AIR SYSTEM REMOVAL/INSTALLATION).

3. Remove the ignition coils. (See IGNITION COIL REMOVAL/INSTALLATION).

4. Remove the spark plugs using a plug-wrench.

5. Install in the reverse order of removal.

Plug Gap Inspection

CAUTION:

  1. To avoid possible damage to the tip, do not adjust the spark plug gap. (ZJY6-18110)
  2. To prevent damaging the tip, use a wire type plug gap gauge when inspecting the spark plug gap. (ZJY6-18110)

1. Inspect the plug gap.

  1. If it exceeds the specification, replace the spark plug. (ZJY6-18110)
  2. If the spark plug gap is not within the specification, adjust it. (Z6B7-18110)

Cleaning

CAUTION:

1. Carbon may adhere to the tip of the spark plug during vehicle delivery or repeated short distance driving during the winter time. If there is any malfunction such as rough idling or start difficulty due to carbon adhesion causing plug fouling, burn off the carbon by performing no-load racing of the engine.

2. When performing the no-load racing, apply the side brake and foot brake, move the shift lever to neutral (MTX), or the selector lever to P position (ATX) to prevent an accident and serious injury.

3. To avoid possible damage to the spark plug tip, do not use a wire brush for cleaning.

(ZJY6-18110)

NOTE:

  1. Remove the dirt from the spark plug completely using only gasoline.
  2. If the accelerator pedal is depressed continuously for a specified time, the engine speed may decrease to the idle speed. This is due to the fuel cut control operation, which prevents overheating, and it does not indicate a malfunction.
  3. Do not perform no-load racing at high engine speed continuously for 10 s or more.

1. If there is carbon adhering to the spark plug, perform no-load racing at 4,000 rpm for 2 min, 2 times.

Visual Inspection

1. Inspect the following items:
