The noise is caused by the hot exhaust, all cars do this, the exhaust gets up to 1000 degree's. The noise is the metal contracting as it cools, it is a clicking or popping noise.

Ive got a 93 mazda mx-6. the motor came out of a 97 ford probe 2.0. with that being said.. 2 days ago, i drove it down a bumpy road (slow) at a coast. it dies and won't start. ive looked everywher

According to the wiring diagram, there is no inertia switch on a Mazda MX-6. The fuel pump circuit only has a pump relay which is powered by a fuse and grounded by the computer.
And if the car did have an inertia switch it would not affect the ignition system.
If you have no spark and no fuel pressure I would check the circuits for the pump, coil, and computer at those fuse locations and beyond. Could have shaken something loose at the key switch or in the wiring.

Mazda MX 5. Manual. Grinding noise upon moving in reverse gear only. Any suggestions what this could be? Thanks.

Reverse synchronizer could be defective. The clutch could need adjustment but this does not seem likely as it is only doing this in reverse.

An help closing the sunroof on a 93 Mazda MX-3? It opens but it doesn;t close. Fuse is OK. I can hear the motor when you press open but nothing when you press close.

Sounds like a faulty switch. If you pop it out and test it with a test light, You should see the power switching from one terminal to another.

1997 Mazda dies when warm - runs smooth when cool

possibly a bad module------cracked---or???? In any case you may get expansion as engine compartment warms up----module shuts you down. Sometimes really hard to diagnose and just putting in a new module is "spendy"----especially if it turns out not to solve the problem!
