Question about 1995 Mazda MX-3

1 Answer

Car wont start.

I have a 1994 Mazda MX3 V6 1.8L.
I have been advised it was most probably the distributor but after inspection the mechanic now says its the oxygen sensors.

My usual mechanic says the oxygen sensors would not stop the car starting as they only effect the emmisions.

Before I pay out for new Oxygen sensors I would like to know who is wrong.

Can you please help at all?

93 mazda mx3 was running cut off and won't start

You might check the coil. If there's no spark it has gone bad (around $100.00 at Auto parts stores, if you replace it yourself.) That's the easier one to fix. The other is the distributor. They also go bad, and cause the same problem.

I have a 1994 5 speed 4 cylinder mazda mx3 and about one block from home after down shifting to second the car shutoff/brokedown? while in motion. As i was still moving i was able to turn the car back on...

If you downshifted into second at too high of a speed, you may have broken some major parts. I would get it checked by a professional who can properly assess the damage.
