Was driving my 2005 Mazda 6 in the curve of an exit ramp and just at the end of the ramp just before being able to exit onto the highway, the car cut off. We tried to start it, but it wouldn't crank. ...


This is likely to be electrical related.

Your vehicle's On-board diagnostic (OBDII) computer will have stored the applicable fault codes.

Have your computer scanned by your local Mazda dealership (or approved agent) for these codes, which will immediately identify the circuit/component causing this condition.

My 1994 Honda Accord LX engine cut out while driving on highway. I have found no spark at plugs, distributor or coils. Fuses all look good. I "tested" the main relay by watching the check...

The ecm receives a signal from the crankshaft position sensor and sends timing signals to the ignition control module, whick fires the coil. The problem can be the crank sensor or the control module. The crank sensor is inside the distributor. I have pasted a test procedure below to help you troubleshoot.
See Figures 8 and 9
Remove the distributor cap, rotor and the inner cover.Disconnect the wires from the igniter.Check for voltage between the black/yellow wire and ground. Battery voltage should be present with the ignition ON . If voltage is not present, check the black/yellow wire between the ignition switch and the igniter.

Fig. Fig. 8: Terminal identification on engines without VTEC
Check for voltage between the green wire ("BLU 2" on VTEC) and ground. Battery voltage should be present with the ignition ON . If voltage is not present, check the ignition coil and the green ("BLU 2" on VTEC) wire between the ignition coil and the igniter.

Fig. Fig. 9: Terminal identification on VTEC engines
Turn the ignition switch OFF .Check the yellow/green wire between the engine control module and the igniter for continuity. Then check the BLU 1 wire between the tachometer and the igniter for continuity.If the wiring is OK and a problem still exists, the igniter is probably at fault.

Sounds like your fuel pump is going bad. Have your mechanic do a pressure test on it.

95 Jaguar XJ6 will not start and No codes present?

During cranking @crk sensor u should see up to 1 ac volt. Also if cam position sensor is @ fault u may not get a code, internal fault. Cam sensors are not availible,but rebuild kit is availible. The engine has to be set to top dead center aligning mark on crank pulley & tab aswell as mark on cam sensor itself.
