Hi
Welcome to Ja.com
Have you checked the valve timing?
As the igniter pack been checked out?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
hi the valve timing is correct as far as im aware....as for testing the igniter..i live in jersey channel islands and no one has the equipment to test it ..the main dealers over here aint very helpful..have priced up a new one and are asking 303 pound .....have been told the igniters are pretty bullet proof ..have you ever come across igniters failing ......its just strange that on first crank you get 3 sparks then it dissapears when still cranking then i turn the ignition off and then crank it again then i get the 3 sparks back then loose them again..this keeps doing the same over and over again.....

Hi
Thanks for getting back to me.
Yes i would agree the the igniter are bullet proof.
I had a Jimny 1300 G13 engine with the similar symptoms, you need to remove the rocker cover and timing belt cover and check the valve timing, If the timing XXXXX XXXXXne up on the cam and crank pulley's then you need to check the position of the cam.
Align the cam pulley with timing mark remove the rocker cover and check that the camshaft is rocking between off inlet and on exhaust rockers exhaust on number 4 cylinder, if you move the cam slightly clock then anti clock wise you should you should see this happen.
The fault i had on a jimny was the cam seized and twisted on the pulley, all the timing XXXXX XXXXXned up but the camshaft was out by 10mm
