Question about 1999 Mazda 626

1 Answer

Cranks has fuel and has spark but no start

The car had a problem for awhile with me having to baby it just to get up to speed with the accelerator and cleaning the spark plugs or replacing them just so the car would get somewhere..Eventually the car got to the point where if I gave it to much gas it would cut out and shut off... I was told the timing could be off so I replaced the belt crank PS and Cam PS & coil pack just for good measure.. Car has spark and fuel Aaaand cranks but yet no start..

When you say it has fuel, have you checked fuel pressure at the rail ?
Has the fuel filter been replaced in the past couple of years ?
Have you tried spraying starting fluid into the throttle body ?

SOURCE: Hard start problem

I had the same problem right after installing a 45 DCOE on a stock 12A. The problem was the carburetor was not properly tuned. To tune it, refer to "Weber Carburetors", by Pat Braden, from HP Books. The main thing I had to do was adjust the idle mixture screws. Seat them lightly (screw them all the way down, but not tightly), then turn both of them out 3 and a half turns. Pull the choke and turn the key WITHOUT pumping the gas pedal. You may also need to adjust the idle speed screw, I've found that about 900 or 1000 rpms is a good idle speed for my particular aplication, but when I first started it with the Weber, I had it at 1500 rpm. It took me about a week of driving it and adjusting it to different settings to get it to run well with a reasonable idle speed. Good luck!

check timing belt timing on the cam gear and crank gear. if timing belt has 60000 miles or more. if they dont break first. they stretch enough jump out of time.

Hello, I am going to make a few assumptions here. The vehicle has an electric fuel pump and you replaced it. The vehicle has fuel injection. The engine is actually cranking, just not starting, when you say "car still won't crank". You are getting fire to the spark plugs at the plug ends. You checked the fuel pump for power at the pump. No power, then you back traced the wire to the fuse block and checked the fuse to see if it was blown. If the fuse is good back trace the power to the ignition switch and/or ECM for power. You have power at the pump, check the ground and make sure it is connected properly. Will the pump run when someone turns the key on? Pump runs, check fuel manifold for pressure. No pressure, check the fuel filter for blockage, or replace it. Fuel pump doesn't run, new replacement pump is defective. There is usually some type of control module for the fuel pump on fuel injected vehicles. Good Luck, RAC

2004 nissan turn over but wont start. replace fuel pump and still got the same result

could be a problem with engine electrical or still with fuel delivery. unhook a fuel injector line while it cranks and see if it shoots out spurts gas, just as the fuel pump line is supposed to shoot out a stream of gas while cranking. if you replaced the fuel pump, and no gas shoots out the disconnected fuel pump line, there is an electrical problem, (fuse, relay or wiring issue) to your new fuel pump. if the gas spurts out the loose injector line, then move on to electrical:

first ensure your ignition coil has spark by disconnecting the coil ouput lead and shorting it out to the chassis of the car. you should see a spark, when you short that circuit while cranking. if you have spark, you will have to move on to the spark plugs/ cables, then the distributor cap/coil packs.

if its part of the electrical system, it will be sensitive to temperature/humidity, and that may be why it only fails to start early in the morning. if it were the fuel injector, it would be more likely to start cold, and NOT re-start after it had already been warmed up and cut off recently.

I have a 1998 Chevy blazer it starts but when it warms up Bout ten mins the engine shuts down

How long since a tune-up? Are there any applicable trouble codes? Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free.
When the vehicle stalls, does it restart quickly or do you have to wait awhile? If it cranks good but you have to wait awhile to get it to start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also check fuel injector pulse.

What causes my 2006 dodge stratus run for awhile and shut off. could it be the tempature sencor

if it were my car i would check the fuel pressure, sounds like maybe the fuel pump. first, when it dies and wont start you need to check and see if you have spark. pull off a plug wire and put a scewdriver or such and hold it about a quarter inch from the valve cover while someone cranks the engine. you should see a spark to the valve cover. if no spark then the ignition has problems, like maybe a cam or crank sensor. if there is spark but it dosnt start, its the fuel

2006 hyundai sonata takes awhile to start

Could be a fuel problem. I would have someone check fuel pressure before and after cranking the engine. You may be loosing some fuel pressure back into the tank when the engine is off.

My 1992 dodge dakota truck will crank but not start

The basics, make sure battery has a full charge. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also check fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes? Your obd1, you should be able to check some codes, yourself.
You can try cycling the key on and off several times before you crank it, when problem is ongoing, if that helps, I think it's a fuel issue.

The car starts 99% of the time but every once in a while it won't restart after it has been driven for a few miles. It cranks over but won't start until it has been sitting awhile.

first you need to check if its fire or fuel the next time it wont start pull the plug wire off and hold it close to metal and have someone crank it if it sparks check to see if you got fuel pressure at fuel rail or throttle body but be careful it could be high pressure if no spark an intermittent problem could be ecm or crank sensor no fuel pressure could be fuel pump in tank

Jerky accelerating, late response to gas being pressed

Well for one, make sure you speed up slowly, dont HIT the accelerator. It may also be problems with your fuel filter. After you are stoped fuel stops running through the fuel pump/filter and then when you start going its starts to run through again and it cant keep up so it gets bubbles in it and doesnt move throught the filter easily hence the jerky accelerating. Good Luck
