I had recently posted about a cold-start problem with my
Many hours of tests in the garage, yet, the problem is hard
to replicate and appears to have gone away. Perhaps gas
formulation changing to winter mix helped masked the
underlying issue or it was a bad connection that was
‘‘fixed’’, a least temporarily.
Anyhow, I had done a tune-up 2000 miles ago and had replaced
the original spark plugs wires with new aftermarket ones. A
local mechanic advised me to check them and I did so by
measuring the resistance – they all ranged from ca. 450 to
1200 Ohms, the longest being the highest in value.
But, when I check the old ones, they were all in the kiloOhm
range – from 4 to 6.0 kΩ.
Thinking that the higher resistance of the old wires was due
to age, I then went to the local autoparts store and tested
another set of brand-new wires for an unknown 4 cylinder
engine – they were also in the 3-4 kΩ range.
After this long rant, my really simple question to the forum
members is – what is the normal range of the resistance
values of the spark plugs wires on a JAG V12?
Hope someone would be able to help.
