Summing Up The Spark And Fuel Tests

Well, we've come to the end of this article. Boy, we covered a lot of information! And it's only the beginning! There will be future installments to this article that will shed some light on a lot of the stuff I didn't cover here. Below you'll find some useful links within this site.

Testing any type of problem on a vehicle is a very dynamic thing. So many variables come into play. That a specific flow of tests for every situation does not exist. There's not a strict cookie-cutter type method of tests (or testing) that can be applied to every no-start condition you will face.

The good news is that knowing the basics of how to test a no-start condition will take you a long way to solving the problem(s).

Knowing theory and a handful of tests, you can improvise as you go. You test something and make a decision based on the result of that test and you go on to the next step. It's as simple as that. You might be asking yourself. How much do I need to know?

You will be amazed at how even rudimentary knowledge of theory and of tests will go a long way to finding the solution to most of the problems you're trying to solve.

As a last piece of advice, read as many books or articles as possible on the subject, find as many web sites offering help and advice for this information to make sense. Every bit of information in each source will complete the picture.
