Question about 1991 Mazda 626

2 Answers

Starter is cranking but car won't start

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.

Listen to the fuel pump while starter is cranking, if it is not making sound, check loss wiring to it and check if the in let screen not damaged, fuel pump in side tank under rear seat cushion.

99 Mazda 626 2.0 changed starter 3x's. No start

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.

Montehammons answered my Mazda 626 starting problem .BUT I wanted to ask, when it will not start I rock it and it starts ??? Trans relay switch?

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.

When i try to start my 97 mazda 626 it clicks but won't turn over and other times it starts.. What's the problem?

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.

My 92 626 was running good then died now wont start

Does it Try to Crank over or does it just click?

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.
