Question about 1994 Mazda 323
Car was running fine,,then wouldn't start...was told it was the rotor button,replaced that still nothing,it will wind over but will not start
I was just told it needed a timing chain,I need help with this please anyone who may know what else I can try,can't not afford to put in shop
it's a 1994 mazda 323 4 cyclinder automatic
I HAVE THE SAME CAR! ...and same problem.... After 4 days of jerking around.... I found the problem...
1) pull off the distributor cap... --- hang it AWAY from the distributor
2) get in the car and KICK IT OVER....
3) If the distributor base does not turn, you have a bad timing belt
(NOT A PROBLEM, cause it is a non-interference motor -- CONSIDER YOURself lucky!)
4) if it does turn, most likely it is the IGNITOR (or ignition control module) -- $90 at Checkers....
GOD BLESS ....
911 was an inside JOB
