3 days for nothin' / Venting
Liebe Audi Freunde
I have spent the last three days in front of my 86 4KSQ because of an
ignition problem. The problem is that I canít get any sparks through the
The 1st thing I did was to check the ground to the engine Fine
2. check: ignition module Fine
3. check: coil primary resistance was off
>>>>>>>> changed coil <<<<<< ( no spark)
4. check: cap & rotor a little worn
>>>>>>>> changed cap & rotor <<<<<(still no spark)
I have spark (testing it with a bridge wire) to the distr. cap (HT from
but it seems that the spark is not able to get through the rotor to the
for some reason (used a ground wire to see if it will spark in the
inside of the
outlets for the plug wires = no spark coming through).
What is in between the HT feeding wire(from coil to distrib.)
and the five outlets for the spark plug wires ( except the rotor) ?
Hall generator ? Can it make the spark not jump from rotor
to the five points on the inside of the distrib.
I have checked the wires to the plugs and I have no continuity. I will
tomorrow. This has nothing to do with the sparking problem inside of the
distributor, since I have worked with ground wires.
I definitely need your help on this one
Please, Help ( Tell me what I have to do to please the Audi gods)
Thank You gentlemen
