    MSD Enhancer

    Got a 97 XP that won't start. I'm not real sure if the problem is carburation or electrical. I can put new spark plugs in and crank on it for 5-10 sec , pull the plugs and they soaked w/gas. I test for spark and it does show spark , but very weak. Saw an ad for the MSD Enhancer and wondered if anyone has any experience with them. Wondering if it could help me. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    I did check compression. It has been a few months back, so I can't remember what the values were but it did seem normal. I was curious so I did take the cylinders off to have a look. The rings didn't have a good look to them but I decided not to change them since compression seemed good. Looking back it seems pretty stupid not to change them but i was convinced i had other problems.

    I don't think they make one for your year ski. The 4255 is for the 96 ignition, you have to completely remove the MPEM and hack the harness to make it work.

    Check all your grounds. Then the connections to your coil inside the black box.

    i agree, i had some problems with the elect. on my 97xp.

    its almost always connections en ground, pull them and clean them...

    i fixed the sparks this way and the speedo and the feul sender!!
