SOURCE: solenoid just clicks and starter doesn't engage

Does your starter have a good ground now after the paint job??? If you jump from the battery to the starter side of the solenoid, do you get any results?

If you have good power and the starter is known good, your solenoid could be faulty.

Thanks for your question at

You only have 2 ways to go......1. fuel .....2. spark, if your cranking your bike, first off try this. crank it with no choke . if nothing happens , take your choke pull it all the way out, now crank it.
if it fires, push choke half way in, continue to crank, it should start . If nothing happens a all .

You have to pull out spark plugs, look at them closely . Is it soaked with gas ? or is it dry as a bone ? if it is soaked with gas, clean it up and dry it off, now check your gap it should be alright
but just check it anyways if the gap is to much it will not fire inside the cyclinder, if it is closed
to much it will not fire . take your plug put it back in just the plug wire and rest it up against the
head or any metal surface, now crank your bike if it has a good blue spark your good with the
electrial check both plugs same way . Now if that is ok , then you have to move on to the fuel.
if you have new clean fuel, good , if it is old like lat years get rid of it . drain everything tank and
all of your fuel filters replace, make sure all of your lines are flowing and carb will clean them self.
give it a little bit after it starts running be gentle with let everything catch up. If it needs final

adjustment on carbs take it back to who ever rebuilt them . Good Luck

Yep, that is alright as the weak spark is a wasted spark. It should goes on each ignition cable a STRONG then WEAK sparks. It is just fine in your ignition.

This is likely an engine misfire. Check and replace all sparkplugs if it has not been done in a while. To do so, you will have to remove the throttle body (not hard to do) and then the black plate on the top of the valve cover. After doing so, there are 2 coils and 2 wires to which cover the spark plugs. Double check the insulators on the coils and the wires for evidence of "tracking" or white marks indicating the wires have a leak and it is grounding too soon. You can purcahse the insulators seperate I do believe. Replace the spark plugs with either NGK or Nippon Denso. This should take care of it. Let me know if you need anything else.

Engine miss fire with no apparent cause or problem

If you are just talking about the codes regarding misfires, this can be triggered by inferior spark plugs. Stick with NGK or Nippon Denso for this car. If you are refering the to an actuall feel of a misfire, double check all coils and wires for tracking which will be white trails that indicate an electrical leak and shorting to ground(the engine block). Let me know which one.

Where are the spark plugs located on a 2001 kia spectra

Remove the engine cover, black plastic cover directly on top of the valve cover, and then the 2 coil packs and 2 wires. 10mm bolts hold the coils inplace as well as the covers. Use Only NGK or Nippon Denso spark plugs to get the right performance and no check engine lights. Let me know if you need anything else.
