It could be a faulty ignition module or igniter in the distributor. Ask an auto electrician to verify it and change it. jw

Hi,I want to check the timing on my 92 mazda 323 astina 1.8 sohc as it is ideling rough but dose not affect it over1200-1500 revs what I need to know is what terminals to bridge


Hi!!
If the timing is not off, it is probably not the timing belt. The first thing you should do is to change the spark plugs, dist. cap and rotor (if equipped), If the problem does not go away, check the fuel pump pressure. On those vehicles, when the fuel pump is quitting, it starts like that, then runs for an hour and quits for 30 min. until it quits for good.
Autozone, Checkers and similar auto parts stores lend Fuel Pump Pressure Testers, ask the attendant what the correct PSI for your pump should be. Here is a diag. on how to connect the tester

When I turn on the engine of my Mazda 323 Sedan Standard Diseal (2000 Model), it struggles to start up, especially if I turn off the again after the intial start. The initial start is OK, but any...


thee are many things that cause this, first worn piston rings could cause it not to start when it's cold or the glow plugs are bad that would cause it not to start the first time, however you say one it starts and shut it off it is hard to start afterwords so this would lead me to believe you have a plugged fuel filter or a pump going out. The reason I say this is it does it only when cold so two things can happen that could cause this, the fuel would be to thick for the pump to pump the fuel or bad glow plugs, however if the engine started then and was hard to start afterwords I would suspect the fuel filter or fuel pump.

Mazda etude 160ie a/c cuts out after approx 45 min driving.


Could be an electrical part that only fails after getting really hot. Coils and ignition modules are known for this. Unfortunately, these parts cannot be tested for this heat-soak type problems, other than to see if spark quality at the plugs has degraded when failing. One other thought. A bad gas cap which is not allowing air to flow in as gas is used can cause this and that is a cheap part to replace just for grins.

the crank shaft sensor is bad, it is heating up, and that is why it works after the water being poured on it, it is cooling it off.....

Motor stops running after starting


You might also find that the fuel filter is in need of a cleaning. Sitting that long can lead to a bit of rust dust in the tank, specially if you have given it a push.
