My 1991 Mazda 626 won't start. The starter is cranking but the car just won't start. I have new plugs and the starter itself is new. Sometimes the car will start after trying for something like 2 hrs. I have noticed that when the gas is below half tank, it sometimes cuts out when I make right turns, but will pick up as soon as I line the car up. However the failure to start happens indiscriminatly.

Well it could be an engine problem, or a bad connection with one of the battery cables. The engine would require more voltage to crank when it is hot, but not that much. You might want to have someone check the engine to see how much drag is has when hot, by turning the crank by hand.
I'm back, Gary-like that commercial on tv where mechanics chase cars down the road on creepers! You have a failing connection somewhere. If you rock it and it works, don't sound like a relay-don't sound like the neutral safety switch-it really sounds like a failing starter or starter solenoid. To check, wait till it won't start, then check for power at solenoid wire when key is held in crank. If power then, suspect a bad starter or solenoid-have tested. If no power, try a new relay-starter relay. Another relay in your car may be same as the starter relay (same part number) so try swapping a different relay. Again, doesn't sound like relay, but you never know until tested. Good luck.
It sounds like your starter motor is going out. More specifically the solenoid on your starter motor, and since the they are both connected these days unlike the older vehicles you like need to replace the whole starter motor. I hope this helps you out.
Start by making sure you have a good battery, or a good charge on the battery. locate the starter signal wire on the starter , usually the small wire, connect your test light. have a friend turn the key and see if test light lights up. if so, your starters bad, replace the starter and you should be good to go.
Hello your starter relay switch look under hood at the power distribution box beside battery open see diagram for relay remove the starter relay switch the starting on it's own will cut off and stop.Sometimes these relays stick you might consider changing it or trying a another used one.
If it just clicks, your starter might be done with, the brushes wear down and need to be replaced, if you can find someone to rebuild your starter, or you can buy a new one/refurbished one and have it installed.
If it trys to crank over then it could be many other problems such as the distributor might be out of timing, Spark plugs might have been worn down, Air intake might be clogged, Fuel pump might have given out, or fuel filter might be clogged.
