Question about 2000 Mazda MX-5 Miata
Car will turn over but will not start. I can hear the fuel pump, fuel pump fuse is good. Sparyed starter fuild into the intake - did not kick over. Hearing a low volume back fire/pressure at the pipe as I release the starter switch.
3 days ago I had to run the car on a near empty gas tank ( ran fine). filled the tank ( sat overnight) and the next day it took 5 attempts to start- but ran ok . car sat at work and then took 3 attempts to start the car for the trip home -ran fine. Parked the car over night and could not get the car to start.
Have you checked that you have power to the coil on cranking?You may also want to check wether you have a good strong spark at the spark plug.It could be an ignition module breaking down.If you have no power to the coil you may need to change the ignition relay.Its close to the battery.
