Question about 1994 Mazda Protege
Car was hard to start when cold..had to crank motor a lot did not show ck engine light. last few days started fine this morning cranks but will not fire. battery is charged. now when engine is cranked, ck engine light come on after 20 sec. of cranking. distributor? lots of folks have had this problem, seems that they are just replacing parts but no one has exact solution. need honest repair shop.
It could be a faulty Engine Coolant Temperature sensor. It sounds like when it is cold, your computer is interpreting your signal from the ECT (or lack therof) as being at a certain temperature and not providing the right amount of fuel in order to start the engine when it is cold. Does the check engine light blink or flash at all?
