Plug cap resistance...
« on: July 23, 2019, 03:59:55 AM »
The plug cap on my Symphony 200 was really bad and shaky, so my mechanic just took it off and place a new on instead. But then I read that some caps have resistors in them... what could happen if for example, the original one has a resistor while the new one doesn't, or vice versa ?  can this change damage the engine or another system ?

The resistor is in the plug, not the plug cap.
It's in there to minimize RFI.
Could interfere with it's own computer I suppose, not sure how well shielded those are.
They were mostly used to reduce radio static on AM in cars as I recall.
