pardli720 We all know the famous misfire
codes. P 300 through P308. The dreaded Misfire
Codes! Sometimes they’re a breeze to troubleshoot
and solve, and sometimes they can have you

So many things can cause an Ignition Misfires.
But by far, the main cause is something called,
carbon tracking. In 60% of cases, over time,
carbon deposits wreak havoc on the ignition
system. But the issue is, finding them, and
finding them quickly. par

As always, the right tool is important. Also
keep in mind that you may do a complete tune
up, or spark plug replacement today, and have
the same car come back in a month or two for
a misfire issue. Why does this happen? the
answer is, lack of a way to detect issues
before thay happen. It is for this reason
that the Zapper Ignition Tester was created.

As you can see in this carbon tracking, both
the boot and plug become mated to each other.
If left too long, the rubber then becomes
hard and carbonized, needing replacement.
But, why not tackle this problem before it
happens. That will save the customer money,
and keep him as your customer. The idea is
to find these carbon tracks in their early
stages, at the same time you do the spark
plug replacement. Here is what carbon tracking
looks like when we use the Zapper Ignition
System Tester. par

  1. Here a link to the ZAPPER for those of you who are interested. We designed, developed and build the ZAPPER. It was designed from the ground up as a COIL, SPARK-BOOT, WIRE, & PLUG tester. Here it is…

  2. Look like a great tool . buy not sure why any one would need this ? first you have taken the Ignition coil out of the motor now it does not  have to do any work( no pressure ) not sure why any one would do this when you had the motor missing and you removed the plugs and cop coil  to test on the bench   . For me I would  test the system before I removed any thing using a lab scope and I sure if you know how to read a scope you will see carbon tracking . and with the scope before I removed the cop coils and pugs I could see if the system had blocked injectors low compression all by looking at the ignition system so taking out the cop coil and testing on the bench would be a no no for me !    I sure you must know we can not fix the problem !! the  poor cop coil has  to fire a very lean mixture this is why all cop coil does not last long like the old coil on car that was running much more rich . yes we can put in new cop coils but in a year or so the cop coil will carbon track to the most easier path I check a lot of engines misses most days and I almost every time find it with a Lab scope  .. but maybe this would be great for someone not having a Lab scope or knowing of to read a scope .. thanks and all the best
