Fastening of the tire of grounding about the ignition coil

1. If the engine is turned by a starter, but not started, disconnect a wire from any spark plug and connect to an autotester. Connect an autotester clip to a bolt or to a metal arm of the engine.
2. In the absence of an automobile tester for check of system of ignition remove a high-voltage wire from any candle and, using the tool with the isolated handles, bring closer the end of a high-voltage wire on 6 mm to the block of cylinders of the engine.
3. Turning the engine a starter, watch an automobile tester or the end of a high-voltage wire to notice a spark during the work of system of ignition.
4. If the spark is present, so on a candle sufficient tension moves.
5. If the spark is absent, remove the electric socket from the ignition coil and, having included ignition, check tension on contacts of the electric socket.
6. If the spark still is absent or admissions of a spark are observed, check reliability of connection of the tire of grounding (see rice. Fastening of the tire of grounding about the ignition coil).
