Question about 1996 Mazda MX-6
When i am accelerating in 2nd or 3rd and sometimes 4th gear, at times the car will stall. i push the clutch pedal back down and basically pop-the-clutch to start the car again. the problem is getting worse every time i drive the car. it started just doing it every now and then, but now it is constant.
I had similar issues on mine. I bought it from the Good Will for less than $1000. :)
It's been totaled i believe at least twice.
Anyways, replace the fuel filter. It's about the size of an oil filter and is very easy to replace.
Also, replace the spark plugs with some good titanium type plugs. They're like $4 from Wal Mart.
Next, put some fuel injector cleaner every other tank of gas or so. This will definitely help.

The problem is most likely your fule pump or possibly a clogged injector. if it's the fuel pump, then you'll have to drop the tank and replace it, but if it's the injectors, which is less likely unless it has not been driven for a year or so, then you'll have to go to either a dealership or a mechanic and have them pressure clean the injectors. most manufacturers would have you do this every 60,000 miles or longer, but it really depends on the amount of driving you do and the quality of gas you use.
