    Just put in a new/replaced Distributor in a 93 MX6 2.5 liter v6 manual trans.

    The Distributor's Connector (Pigtails) were brittle with age. The smaller connector (three wire) broke/cracked and is loose. Which means it doesn't fit firmly/snugly in its place. So as a temporary solution we used some silicon to hold it tight. The car runs really well as long as it holds tight.

    NOW HERE LIES THE PROBLEM

    I cant find the part(s). Can't find either the "Distributor Pigtail" or the" connector plug" the three-wire plug that fits into the receptor on the distributor. The upper and smaller connector on the distributor. This can be spliced on I do believe if I could find a new/similar plug.

    I am crossing my fingers that someone can direct me to finding this replacement part that's essential for running the engine. Won't run at all or very rough without that piece.

    Would appreciate anyone's opinion on this matter.

    Yours truly,
    Memphis, TN

Coil resistance is not a good way to determine if the coil is good or bad. It might still need replacing. Check to see if your getting a pulse signal to the coil. You can do this by hooking a milivolt test light to the trigger wire and ground. If it doesn't flash as you crank the motor, check out your pickup coil in the distributor. Some of them you can change. Some you have to replace the entire distributor. Sometimes oil will leak into the distributors on certain models which use an optical pickup. If this is the case, change the seal to fix the oil leak and GENTLY clean the optical sensor and photo wheel.

What would cause a coil to burn out on a Mazda Tribute 05 v6


Ignition coils fail due to bad spark plugs or plug wires. Another potential cause is heat and vibration, which can damage the ignition coil's windings and insulation. If an engine is experiencing repeated coil failures, the underlying cause may be resistance from worn spark plugs or excessive spark plug gap. And in rare cases, the failure may be due to a lean fuel condition caused by leaky valves.

With coil on plug (COP) type coils, the rubber insulation dries up (over time and heat from the engine) and cracks and will arc across the engine's metal- shorting out. (Electricity seeks the path of least resistance)

By design, coils take low voltage energy from the battery (12-Volts dc) and transform that energy into a very high voltage charge (in the range of 30,000 to 35,000 volts) to energize the spark plugs which in turn ignites the fuel.

If a spark plug or plug wire is open or has excessive resistance, the ignition coil's output voltage can shoot higher (above the max threshold of 35,000 volts) and burns through the coil's internal insulation, causing a short.

When a coil failure occurs, the coil's voltage output drops, and the engine may not start or may misfire badly when under load.

Extreme caution should be exercised when handling coil packs that are energized- a lethal dose of voltage can arc across the air into the body. So don't touch them when the engine is running!

As stated earlier, if you need to replace the COP, replace the spark plug too, make sure the spark plug is properly gapped.

Mazda MX6 V6 firing cap order bottom 1 2 3, top 5 4 6. Is that the right cap? Won't start, and getting orange sparks.


Here is your firing order in relation to the distributor cap.

Engine cranks but no start, no spark. What else can I check?


is it actually rotating when the engine turns over I know sounds stupid but I\'ve seen the teeth that goes inside against the cam break off on first turn over happened to me once on a Honda, also that same car my original problem was I was getting power and everything like you but the icm on the distributor was putting the power out on the ground side and the power turned to ground not allowing the distributor to do its job and produce spark





hope this helps

Mazda 1993 MX6 2.5ltr v6 LS manual transmission. Discontinued Part/No Part #. The Distributor Connector (Pigtail).


Mazda do not make distributors or electrical connectors . These parts are made for mazda to mazda specifications by electrical manufacturers / contractors . So being aware of that it is possible (long process) to get the name on the distributor to Lucas-Nippon denso -nitto -Mitsubishi-( Mitsubishi make for a lot of different car makers as oem equipment) etc and any other details stamped into the body of the distributor or ignition module and contact them on the web site at the technical section or parts section and try and track down from there. Another way that I sometimes use is to cruise the wreckers (mazda in this case ) and look for distributors from other engines that will have this part in use as there is always a parts over lap where new products are fitted to the run out models before the new model is on the market

the tps may affect the idle, but not really the excessive fuel. check that your coil has enough spark, remove plug watch spark. otherwise check haul senders in distributor or check injectors are not leaking.

Check the resistance of the pick-up coil in the distributor. Reading should be between 800 to 1200 ohms. Disconnect the two wire connection at the distributor control module to measure the resistance.

No spark produced by my distributor on my '93. V6 Mazda MX6


sorry i could no doubt sort it but i would need car in front of me,check the ignition module which could be in the dist or under the coil first before you start playing with the wires ,but yes sounds like the other wires could be an isolator switch or boy racer weekend mechanic alarm,dont know why people are guilled and fooled into fitting these useless things they always go wrong and have to be removed,cant beat a decent steering wheel antitheft lock.
