Question about 1998 Mazda 626

Open Question

Mazda Capella 1998,not idling evenly

One of the ignition leads was cracked so I replaced the whole set.I've also changed the spark plugs but the idling is still very bad and the car sounds as if it wants to cut out.There might be a possibilty that I've connected the ignition leads incorrectly,can you please tell me what the ignition lead formation is so that I can be sure I've matched them correctly,

Thank you

Craig

    The problem has been fixed thank you.The gasket was blown and was sucking in air causing a fluctuation in idling.

SOURCE: REPLACING NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL

The large one goes to the engine block and the little one goes to the sheetmetal of the right wheelwell. Those little ones often pull loose such that you can't imagine where it came from, it was a 5/16" headed screw into the sheet metal.

There is also a couple of bare naked ground cables that also grounds your transmission with your starter and vehicle frame close to the starter. If these get pulled in two when changing out an engine for example you will get all kinds of odd blinker problems, gauges reading off the chart full and then empty, you will swear the thing is possessed.

You could make your own and add it into the GM grounding system already in place. Bolt the big end to the block, put a screw thru a handy frame hole where ever it lays across one and finish with a smaller self tapping screw right into the fender well right thru the cable.

Initial start up the engine sounds like its running on 2 cylinders under powered intil the temp gauge reads normal ???? any body got the answer please


Cold starting misfires can often be caused by either tired high tension spark plug leads or ignition coil packs. If replacing leads, then replace with a full, new set. Coils can be changed individually, but it is often the case that if one has failed, then the others aren't far behind. Some cars have individual coil packs on each spark plug. Some cars have a single pack for all plugs and some have coil packs which may control two or more plugs.

To check for a misfire (ignition failure) follow these steps:

(Cold start) (Use a pair of insulated pliers)

1) Start the vehicle

2) When the vehicle starts misfiring, disconnect plug leads or coil pack connections one at a time. If the vehicle idles even more roughly, then that plug or pack should be considered fine.
Replug each connection before disconnecting the next one. Once you disconnect a plug lead or coil pack connection and find no difference in poor engine running, then you have likely found the offending cylinder. Check the spark plug condition, lead and/or coil condition and connections on that cylinder.

3) Replace components as necessary.

Need to know how to replace spark plugs and wires on a v6 mazda 2001


All you need is a deep socket that is the right size to fit your spark plugs and the new set of leads.

Spark plugs:
remove the spark plug end of the lead, use a screw driver and rag to place down the whole to mop up any oil that may be down there. remove your spark plug, place the new one in and replace the lead. simple as that really.

Leads:
These can be more difficult. As you pull the leads off the park plugs and distributor you will need to take note of which lead goes where and write it down. once all 6 are removed just simply reverse the process. A good rule of thumb is the length of the leadas to its location on the engine but dont take it for granted.

Wires and distributor cap too-they should be changed if you are going to rule out ignition problems. You can check the wires with a digital meter, but if you know they haven't been replaced in a while, do that-distributor caps are a little trickier in that they can hairline cracks or 'carbon' tracks that can disrupt the spark.

Ignition problem car runs on two cylinders randomly


if one spark plug were fouled or one plug wire was arcing to the engine then 2 cylinders would not work, the spark is controlled by the computerif its been 30,000 or sole miles since plugs and wires were changed change them it might fix it but at least you will know it isnt that and plugs would have been close to worn out anyway

Replaced coil, spark plugs,plug wires, rotor and rotor cap, and the part under the rotor (forget the name) car has a miss when idleing and when getting on it, NAPA said the spark plug gap should be .035,...


if this is a four cylinder engine,the plug gap is what NAPA told you,verify you have the right plugs and gap,next remove the cap again and verify the plug wires are pulled into cap where they will lock in.
