You need to check all related fuses and relays. Your car is old enough for me to be comfortable saying that should be the problem. Fuses can be checked fairly easily, your fuse box should say which fuses are which. Though I've had cars where the instructions were long gone. In that case, I'd by a Haynes manual; they're handy anyway. Once you've found the correct fuses, check to see if they are blown. The piece of metal that runs through them should be solid; if it is broken or the plastic has a smokey appearance it is probably blown and needs to be replaced. If that is not the problem, use the Haynes manual to locate the relays. These are harder to check since they aren't like fuses, you cant look at them and tell. You can check their supply to see if they are getting power. If it is, then it is probably bad and in need of replacement.

My 1994 mazda navaho seems to be vapor locking. How do i fix this

You need to know the fuel pressure. Just turning the key to on should cause the fuel pump to put high pressure in the fuel line to the engine and fuel injectors. If the pump doesn't turn on, there is an Inertia fuel shutoff switch in the power line going to the pump, so check that has not tripped.

If hard starting or running poorly problems, you could have a fuel pump that still works but fails to keep adequate pressure- a weak pump that needs replacing. If your Mazda has a fuel pressure test port, called a shrader valve, it is easy to hook up a fuel pressure test gauge to check fuel pressure. Autozone and maybe other national stores rent or loan fuel pressure testers.

98 Mazda Millenia won't start. Belts turn but doesn't seem to get gas. Doesn't seem like fuel pump working. Ran a hot wire to fuel pump, still doesn't appear to work.

Ever consider the fuel pump has failed?

You don't run wires to items to test them

The are many places you can power up a fuel pump,
but you need to check for a good ground connection

You have a 16 year old vehicle,may as well drop the tank &
get involved.

Truck is not getting fuel

First check to see if a fuse is blown left side of steering column lower dash door. If fuse checks good remove the driver side kick panel for the fuel pump relay, a small plastic box with wires entering it. Raise the hood, disconnect the negative battery cable, then remove the relay. A good parts shop should be able to check the relay. If it's faulty, replace it. If not, test the wires leading to the fuel pump for power and replace or splice any where the power supply is broken. If replacing the the relay and checking wiring doesn't fix the problem you'll need to check the fuel pump which is located in the gas tank. This involves dropping the tank and removing the pump for testing. Relays in the Mazda pickups are the usual culprit. If none of the above works, the vehicle computer may be shot, and not a cheap fix. Mazda a in the late 80's to early 90's used Mitsubishi computers which are notorious for failing. Rebuild: $200. Used $60-150. If you need a new computer, go for the rebuilt, since a junk yard replacement could fail as well if it hasn't been previously rebuilt.

I have 1990 Mazda Protege Se. Gas fuel guage is showing empty but about 2-3 gallons gas is in tank. When I fuel it up to full, gas guage showing full again. What's the problem? How to fix?

the extra fuel is "reserve" to get you to a fuel station... this is normal. If you were to run it completely out you will damage your fuel pump, fuel is used to cool the fuel pump. Soo... DON'T run it so low!

My 1998 Mazda 626 is not getting any power to the fuel pump. I currently have straight wires connected so that the car can run but that is only temporary. I want to fix it the right way.

On Many cars, there is an emergency fuel pump disconnect. It is usually located near the front passenger seat, between the seat & door jam. Make sure that it did not get turned off accidentally. Check your owners manual for the exact location of this cutoff switch. There is a 99% chance that this is your problem.

Do you know where or if a 2000 Mazda 626 has a fuel pump cut off switch. According to the parts store it doesn't have a fuel pump relay. I have replaced the fuel pump and the car still won't crank. I am...

Hello, I am going to make a few assumptions here. The vehicle has an electric fuel pump and you replaced it. The vehicle has fuel injection. The engine is actually cranking, just not starting, when you say "car still won't crank". You are getting fire to the spark plugs at the plug ends. You checked the fuel pump for power at the pump. No power, then you back traced the wire to the fuse block and checked the fuse to see if it was blown. If the fuse is good back trace the power to the ignition switch and/or ECM for power. You have power at the pump, check the ground and make sure it is connected properly. Will the pump run when someone turns the key on? Pump runs, check fuel manifold for pressure. No pressure, check the fuel filter for blockage, or replace it. Fuel pump doesn't run, new replacement pump is defective. There is usually some type of control module for the fuel pump on fuel injected vehicles. Good Luck, RAC

1996 mazda mx6 ls cranks but won't start

you may need to run a wire from a keyed ignition source that has power while cranking and running to the fuel pump relay and bypass the pcm to test wether it will run, if it runs put a more permanent wire in place.Not too sure what tests youve done but it seems that fuel is what your focusing on so a quick test is too spray engine start up the intake tube to see if the engine trys to run if it does it eliminates a lot of other potential reasons for a no start condition.Also try squeezing the fuel return line to see if the added pressure will try to make engine run.Could be time to replace fuel pump etc anyway let me know how it goes good luck with it
