Posted 13 July 2005 - 06:34 PM
wanna ask, what to check when engine misfire/jerk... happens when low rpm
and idling.. macam engine off and on back less than 1 second.. i suspected
ignition sytem.. just changed the plugs... but i suspected the plug cables.
.. and most of all i suspected the short cable from igtn coil to
distributor because it never been changed... but how to really confirmed
that the cables are due?? tq

Tukar saja ECT (Engine Cooling Temperature Sensor) yang connect to ECU.

smoothly whether engine is cold / hot with/out acond... ermm... my

was confirmed having slip disc... so don't think can join u all... doc

One is that the inner cable core is carbonised and breaking up which will
eventually putus. Next is when the insulation properties of the HT cable`s
rubber is damaged and sparks are coming out of the cable to the engine
The first problem is more difficult to see as it`s intermittent, so better
change a whole set to confirm. With the engine running, you can also bend
the cables to check if there`re broken core, the engine will give upo
then. The second problem can be avoided by lifting all the cables away
from the engine / car body ground.
Sorry to hear about your medical predicament. So young have slip disc.
Better be careful hor.

thanks for the info.. going to check them.. my dad 'kebas' the 240 today,
so can't check... eheheheh...
actually, there are quite a number of youngsters nowadays suffer slip disc
in 20s and 30s.. the real fact is this; for those of you who have healthy
spine, take care of it, especially uncle2 yg rajin diy... make sure u move
and bend ur body, how to lift up heavy things, mcm mana tunduk semua in
rigth way.. kalau dah kene slip disc, then dont think about diy anymore,
cannot even wash the car... love ur spine, take care of it, if u love ur

now. You're right. Love your spine! Some years ago, I coughed when
brushing my teeth & pulled a muscle. Left me in pain for six weeks despite
medical attention. It's no joke, guys. You can be totally incapacitated.

zhafri- ur 240 still jerk & misfire? better let others do it 4 U lah,
Ur spine ok? this slipped disc can happen to almost everbody,
`coz a disc that support each backbone can easily slips
under certain circumstances, i.e sport,
heavy falls etc.. so once kena u've got to be v.v.v.careful
in future, forget about v. active lifestyle for a next couple of month,
but yet U can still surf thru the forum as usuall
`coz its a fingers job....

nope, the 240 didn't jerk for couple days.. i really suspect the plug cable
as it happened intermittenly.. tomorrow will bring it to workshop... to
change longshaft mounting, change tyres and also check for the jerk issue..
u punye advise are exactly as what my doc said!! he told me not to lift
heavy things, can't bend ur body for 1 month!! so, just relax for a month..
