When checking these subsystems keep an eye out for evidence suggesting trouble such as sludge or debris in fuel, missing or damaged air cleaner, score marks on top of piston and cylinder walls, and excessive carbon build up on the intake and exhaust valves. All of these give you valuable insight to your problem.
A great feature of many DMM’s is the continuity setting. The continuity function measures resistance, and if there is a complete connection the meter will give an audible beep. If there is no continuity your DMM will show “OL” on the display meaning there is an open line. You can use this to test for electrical shorts in wiring or components. I commonly use this function to quickly test for shorted ignition switches and ignition coils.
