Question about 1988 Mazda B2200

1 Answer

1990 mazda b2200 starts & idle but dies if I push on the gas.

My truck has 210,000 miles on it, and it only does this occasionally. It has no catalytic converter and good compression in the exhaust. The fuel filter is clean, the mass air flow looks good. It leaks oil pretty bad and the spark plugs look fouled, I'm changing them out tomorrow. It is fuel injected and has an in-tank fuel pump. Is there a way to check the pump for problems? I've undone the line and cranked the engine and gas shoots out. So I know the pump is working partially, how do I find out if it is working properly or if it needs replaced? Or is there another problem that is causing this? Like I said it doesn't always do this, I drove it tonight and it ran like a champ, but something is wrong and I don't know what.

    I have a 2005 Mazda Tribute V-6 and recently it quit on me while I was driving. I had less than a quarter tank of gas. I was not able to start the vehicle. I had to call the wrecker and the mechanic has checked the spark plugs; fuel pump/filter and compression and all works good. It cranks good but just dont want to start. Please help me to resolve this problem. Any recommendations are appreciated. Thanks

You need to run a pressure check on the fuel line with the appropriate gauge.
