Have you checked that you have power to the coil on cranking?You may also want to check wether you have a good strong spark at the spark plug.It could be an ignition module breaking down.If you have no power to the coil you may need to change the ignition relay.Its close to the battery.

SOURCE: mazda 626 will not start..no spark

Hi,

Offhand, a lot of possibilities that can cause no spark and/or deteriorating performance.

  • possibilities for no spark:
  1. faulty computer;
  2. if it is an automatic transmission, the neutral switch;
  3. if it has an immobilizer tied to the anti theft/security system;
  4. faulty cam and/or crank position sensors;
  5. loose wiring connectors, corroded terminals.
  • possibilities for deteriorating performance:
  1. major tune-up;
  2. restricted, blocked faulty injectors;
  3. clogged fuel filter;
  4. clogged air filter;
  5. engine age.
The correct procedure would be to have the car's computer scanned for the error codes. The error codes would give us a general idea where to begin diagnosis/tests. There are a number of known shops that would do the scanning for free and provide you with the error codes.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back with error codes, how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

VSS or vehicle speed sensor aka cam sensor or crank position sensor. Test the battery and alternator. You should also check for blown fuses, bad wires and grounds on a car as old as yours. If you find it's getting spark and fuel after further testing, check the timing belt. It could have slipped or broke even if it was changed recently so either pull off the cover or at least do a compression test.

Tell me some ideas i'm stumped... I had a bad fuel pump and I replaced it, and pump now comes on, the car started and drove for an hour and parked for the night. Next day I have the same problem the pump...


Could be the fuel pump. Where did you get it? Years ago I quit buying pumps, alternators, and starters from discount stores. I bought a fuel pump that died the next day. Only to do the job again. Now I work I do get OE parts. I have only replaced one OE part in the last ten+ years. I could even tell you how many discount parts I have replace that are less than 6 months old. Chinese made junk.

96 Benz ran out of gas other day, got it filled up & drove home (20 miles). Next day drove about 40 miles, left car running in park for about 15 min, when I left car was stalling like it was running o


You never leave a car running, as it will
overheat the Exhaust Converter
When you run out of fuel, you sometimes
ruin the Fuel Pump
It depends on gas to lubricate it,as strange as it sounds
Check fuel pressure & volume at the motor with a gauge

2.0 sdi running on 3 have changed fuel filter


Your not too bright--- I'm sorry

Changing a gas filter & then saying it ran a lot better
is not correct at all.

The problem comes back 220 miles later--so you change
the fuel filter again,absolutely stupid

You know that one cylinder is not contributing,would you
not go to a repair shop to have that resolved

Failure to start. then will start next day. Mazda said it was fuel pump. They replaced $790.00. did not resolve problem. they kept 2 days and said it was battery. Replaced. @ weeks later same problem.


Well, they probably did put on either a bad fuel pump or should've done the relay.There is also a fuel pump REGULATOR that can cause a lot of trouble. Make them keep at it,since their work should be warranteed when they say they've fixed it. don-ohio

Car stalls while driving. Will start after about five minutes. Is not flooded. Doesn't usually do this until after it has been driven a bit. Does it more in warm weather. Check engine light sometimes...


I'd have fuel pressure tested. I had a 95' did same thing. Cold winter day, worked fine, as soon as it got warmer, or hot out, it would quit, and re-start 20 minutes later and go for a distance then die again. If I parked in the shade on a hot day, I'd get further before it quit for the first time. I started carrying a fuel pressure gauge with me. Cool in the morning my fuel pressure was up to spec @ 49-50psi. Once it got warm/hot out and it died, Hooked up gauge and it was at 2-5psi. Let it sit and cool off 20-30 minutes, pressure would jump back up and run good until fuel pump got hot again and then pressure dropped off and car quit. It sure sounds like the fuel pump, but the hard part will be getting the car to the shop at the right time, or they will need to let it run on the lot until it quits to confirm the pressure drop. One thing you can try is when car quits, have a can of WD-40 or quick start with you and a screwdriver. Loosen the clamp on the air intake hose where it connects to the front of the throttle body and pull it off. With vehicle off, turn throttle linkage so the plate opens up enough to spray WD-40 a second or 2 in the throttle body. Then try to start it. If it starts and runs momentarily, then you can be pretty sure it's fuel related and my guess is the pump needs replacement.

Ran fine last night drove round trip prob 75 miles no prob parked tried to start in morming keepd cranking wont start less than 1/4 tqnk off gas banged on gas tank while cranking still wont start any...


One way to check the fuel pump is to turn the ignition to on and listen for the pump to run. It should run for a few seconds. It may be a couple of seconds after you turn the ignition to on before it runs. Normally you can do this repeated times.

If you don't hear the pump run that is most probably the problem.

I have a 95 ford f150m eddie bauer series, i always used the front tank, on long drive's i would switch, over, one day after use, i park it, next morn, it would not start, i switch over to the rear, no...


it may have a seperate pump for the seprate tanks im not sure. it acts to me like its running thaose few miles on fuel left in lines from the back tank. i would start by selcting the frount tank when you put it to bed one night, then in morning have some one turn the key while you listen for a fuel pump if i didnt hera one i would start there. if i heard one check for a seperate fuel filter for the frount tank then check for pluged lines between the two tanks. it has to be someting simple. good luck.
