Check of a condition and replacement of components of system of ignition

* Originators of the real Management recommend to make check of a condition of VV of electroconducting slightly more often - each 80 000 km of run.

VV electroconducting

Check of an external condition


1. Check of a condition of VV of wires should be made each time at replacement of spark plugs.
2. Check begins with external survey of isolation of wires at the working engine. Tire out the car in a dark, well ventilated room, start the engine and make sure of lack of an iskroobrazovaniye on wires. Iskroobrazovaniye is a sign of breakdown of isolation. Try not to touch moving components in an impellent compartment. Make necessary marks on replacement of defective wires, then let's to the engine cool down and start checks of a condition of a cover and a begunka of the distributor of ignition.
3. Check of candle wires is made serially in order to avoid violation of an order of their connection at assembly. Usually on isolation of firm wires there is the corresponding marking. In case of absence that, put it independently by means of an adhesive tape and a marker.
4. Disconnect VV a wire from a spark plug (best of all use the special tool). At all do not pull for a wire, only for its tip.

On models of the last years of release for the purpose of ensuring access to spark plugs it is necessary to remove the top cover from a cover of a head of cylinders.

5. Examine internal walls of a tip. Corrosion is usually shown in the form of a fragile korkoobrazny raid of white color. In case of strong oxidation replace a wire.
6. Pull a tip back on a shaft of the candle, make sure of density of its landing. In case of need again remove a tip and as appropriate turn in plugs in a rubber cover.
7. Pure rags wipe a wire on all its length, having completely removed from an isolation surface dirt and greasing traces. Examine wire isolation on existence of cracks, traces прогара and other damages. Try not to bend a wire under acute angles in order to avoid violation of integrity of veins of the conductor in isolation.
8. Disconnect a wire from the distributor, - again pull only for a tip, instead of for a wire. Check a tip on existence of signs of corrosion, estimate density of landing it on the plug. Again connect a wire to the distributor.
9. Operating in a similar manner, serially check a condition of all remained candle wires. Make sure of reliability of their connection to candles and distributor plugs.
10. In need of performance of replacement of VV of wires (see below) track that replaceable wires corresponded on the standard size to parameters of the engine of your car. In firm shops of automobile accessories and Mitsubishi company service centers always it is possible to get sets of VV of the wires cut on length and equipped with tips ready to the use. Remove and replace wires serially in order to avoid violation of an order of ignition.

Measurement of resistive resistance


1. Check of resistive resistance of VV of electroconducting is made by means of an ohmmeter. Excessive specific resistance of candle wires is at the bottom of emergence of admissions of ignition and refusals at engine start in the conditions of the increased atmospheric humidity.
2. Measurement is made for each wire separately. The ohmmeter is connected between trailer plugs of a wire. The description of procedure of removal and VV installation of wires/cover of the distributor of ignition is provided below.

3. Having taken readings, compare the received results to requirements of Specifications. The nominal rate makes 1333 ÷ 2000 Ohm/dm. Wires with the increased specific resistive resistance are subject to replacement.

Removal and installation


1. Remove a sleeve of an air inlet of an air purifier.
2. At the corresponding complete set of the car remove the central cover from a cover of a head of cylinders.
3. Mark VV electroconducting by means of an adhesive tape, try to remember a route of laying of each of wires.
4. Since the longest, serially disconnect wire VV from candles and from bobbin modules/cover of the distributor of ignition.
5. At installation to the place of old electroconducting watch closely observance of an order of connection of wires (see the marking put before removal).
6. New wires should correspond in accuracy removed from the car on a standard size.
7. Grease protective covers of tips of VV of wires with dielectric greasing and plant tips on plugs of modules of an ignition/cover of the distributor. Track reliability of fixing of tips.
8. Having laid each of candle wires according to the scheme made in the course of dismantle, connect them to the corresponding spark plugs (begin with laying of the longest wire and act on decreasing).
9. In summary establish into place an air inlet sleeve.

Cover and distributor begunok


1. Disconnect a negative wire from the battery.

If the stereosystem established on the car is equipped with a security code before disconnecting the battery make sure that have the correct combination for audiosystem input in action!

2. Mark and disconnect from a VV distributor cover electroconducting (see above).
3. Turn out fixing screws / release clamps and uncover the distributor case.
4. Mark adjusting situation a begunka and remove it from a distributor shaft.
5. Good practice is replacement of a cover and a begunka of the distributor of ignition regardless of their condition each time at installation of new VV of wires. When using old components carefully smooth out contact surfaces of their plugs and measure resistance between wires and a cover (see above). In case of need replace a cover and/or wires.
6. If replacement of a cover and a begunka of the distributor are not included into the plan of carried-out works, carefully wash out the removed components soap solution and dry them (whenever possible with application of the compressed air). Make sure that after rubbing of components by rags on them did not remain the podlipshy and got stuck fibers and pile particles.

7. Attentively examine a distributor cover on existence of cracks, chips of facing of plugs, traces прогара, coal paths and other defects; estimate a condition of the central button of contact electrodes/plugs.

8. Estimate a condition of a working tip and a spring a begunka.

9. Installation of components is made as it should be, the return to an order of their dismantle. At installation of a new cover of the distributor transfer on it from old VV of a wire, connecting them it is strict in a certain order in order to avoid violation of an order of ignition, - try not to disconnect all wires at the same time, transfer them serially.

The order of ignition is specified in Specifications at the beginning of the present Chapter. On the majority of models the protective ledge (facing) of the plug of connection of a wire of a spark plug of the first cylinder on a cover of the distributor is as appropriate marked.
