Car wont start

Almost didn't start this morning, then started, ran for 20 minutes, turned it off to get gas, then wouldn't start again. Battery is not the issue.

    I will check that, thank you! Also, we just changed the fog lights 5 nights ago because both went out, could this have caused a problem?

SOURCE: Battery not charging in Mazda Millenia year 2000

Sounds like a similar problem I had. I had a bad battery. Jumping the car and charger did not help. All instruments work as I am guessing the battery had enough juice to light those but not enough to start car. Either bad battery or alternator. I changed out the battery and everything was fine. If you have an aftermarket stereo or amp, make sure they are setup right. The amp may be drawing power even if radio and car is off which may attribute to low start power (including above suggestions).

SOURCE: 1991 Mazda 626 DX dies suddenly after running for 10 minutes.

Hello, It sounds like an engine ignition control module gone out or a coil. They get hot and quit working after a short period of time, cool off then work again till they get hot.
Is the ignition system pointless electronic or does it have points? Are you getting any fire at all now to the cylinders? Does the tach in the vehicle show any RPM's during cranking? Do you have voltage at the positive side of the ignition coil? Does the coil meet the ohm ratings for that years vehicle ignition? Does the vehicle have oil in it so the oil pressure sensor allows the engine to run, this may not be an option on your particular vehicle? You can check most of this out with a volt/ohm meter. Check your voltages before starting the vehicle, during running and after it quits to see where the loss is. Just don't get near the center tap of the coil or you will get a rude awakening and/or serious injury. Good luck, RAC

SOURCE: mazda 323 wont start until cold

If this vehicle has a distributor, try replacing the pickup coil. This should be located under your distributor cap and is responsible for spark. When your engine compartment gets warm from normal conditions, this plastic piece of **** shrinks and the metal tab attached to it doesn't make a good enough connection to conduct the electric spark to your plugs. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: 2001 Mazad 626 ran out

Hello
The electric fuel pump in this car is located inside the fuel tank, it is a very small pump but able to do its job without burning out because it is cooled by the gas it is immersed in, when you run out of gas you severely overheated the pump and it seizes up the rotor that pumps the gas. You should avoid ever letting the fuel tank level go below 1/8 tank on gauge to avoid pump damage from heat. Bottom line you will need to replace the fuel pump. I have seen this happen dozens of times in cars towed to the shop after they ran out of fuel..

Hi sounds like the typical fuel pump or filter problem with these cars, best way to tell is take top fuel hose off on fuel filter under hood, turn key on ignition (not start) and fuel should pump out, if not its your pump, just beware of doing when engine is hot
