The Scots were too cautious for too long. Successful people get going as early as possible. Geoff Thompson, one of the greatest and most thoughtful martial artists in the UK, gets up at 5.30 a.m. every day to get the day off to a good start.
Check the coil itself by unplugging the wire that runs from the coil to the center of the distributor at the distributor end. Then place a spark plug in the wichita ks socket on the end of the coil wire. With the spark plug firmly in contact with the tractor engine (grounded), roll the engine over with the starter and watch for the spark plug to spark. If no sparks are observed the coil is bad and should be replaced. http://youtu.be/-Ds0sQm2wvE
Push the button on the key fob for all the Kia car doors to lock. The hazard lights flash twice and the horn beeps once to indicate all doors are locked. When the button is pushed with all Kia cars doors locked, the hazard lights flash twice and the horn beeps once as a reminder that the doors are already locked. If a Kia car door is open and you push the button, the doors will lock but the horn will not beep and the hazard lights will not flash. The horn may or may not beep once.
If your engine is receiving enough fuel, the no-start must be due to a lack of compression. Check each of the cylinders with a compression tester (the tester usually costs less than $30). Insufficient compression is often caused by a timing belt that has snapped or become loose. This will affect how the intake and exhaust valves land in their seats.
Unfortunately, we may never know. Mr. Tesla’s secret died with him. We do know that there was no battery, and no other visible external power source. We know that there was a motor, some tubes, the famous Tesla coil, and an ignition replacement.
Do not tow the Kia vehicle backwards with the front wheels on the ground as this may cause damage to the vehicle. Do not tow with sling-type equipment. Use wheel lift or flatbed equipment.
Moisture is frozen to the sensor. (It will operate normally when the moisture has been cleared.) The sensor is covered with foreign matter, such as snow or water, or the sensor cover is blocked. (It will operate normally when the material is removed or the sensor is no longer blocked.) Driving a Kia car on uneven road surfaces (unpaved roads, gravel, and bumps, gradient). Objects generating excessive noise (vehicle horns, loud motorcycle engines, or truck air brakes) are within range of the sensor. Heavy rain or water spray exists. Wireless transmitters or mobile phones are within range of the sensor. The sensor is covered with snow.
Unlike the standard ignition system consisting of just a coil circuit, the system functions independent from the charging system completely. This should be noted when working on outboard motors because the motor will not stall just from disconnecting the battery but will need to be shorted to ground. This always reminds me of growing up when we had snmall engines mounted on go carts or lawn mowers consisting of a metal bar to short the spark plug lead. The outboard ignition system works in a similar way that is why even the ignition repair cannot be a normal automotive type but a magneto type switch. It is especially critical to purchase the correct replacement parts if needed.
Ah, yes. It’s an outgrowth of my Once a Brat book. While we were in Korea, my mother met and played bridge almost daily with three other army wives, and one day one of the women decided to end her life there. No one ever knew why, but I have invented a story line about all four of the women, their backgrounds and their marriages, and how they developed the true grit to survive in such a primitive, far away country, at least at that time in our history. And 25 years later, the women hold a reunion, where secret sorrows and assumptions are shared, and the ghost of Leah vanishes from their world, now that the truth is known.
