Incident after incident

Recommended Posts

hello fellas,

Last week one of the spark plugs just shot and it made a loud noise. I shut down the car, took it to Al Futtaim and got a new plug installed. The car seemed back to normal. I brought it home. After a day or two I saw some error codes comes up, I disconnected the battery to wipe out the codes since I genuinely thought that those codes were triggered due to the spark plug incident. Now my car won't start and it has been sitting idle. I checked the connectors, wires, battery, everything ... can't seem to find anything wrong. What can it be?

Check for more sparks when you turn your car on ... have a friend help you out ... or the 'blown' factor might have caused some sort of damage to the engine control unit.

Yes the ECU might have been affected and plus a compression test might help - it will establish the compression rate on your vehicle and whether or not the car will run efficiently. Here is how you can go about doing it:

Another thing, have your battery and engine connections thoroughly checked - something you might have done already.. just a reminder.
