If your tach does not work that is a symptom. Of course a timing light is most useful. If not you can coil wires (swap with known good wire) ; check ignitor,(swap trail/lead ignitor plugs at distributor) coil, check with ohm meter.
Trailing ignitors are very common failures, especially when either jump starting or being jump started when a battery is stone dead. What happens is there can be a huge power spike through the ignition system damaging the electronics in the ignitor. 90% of trailing ignitor failures happen during a jump start procedure.
At this age though, wires and coils can be suspect. My recommendation for ignition parts, Mazda Mitsubishi Cap/rotor and NGK wires and plugs. They are good enough for Mazda factory race teams and I have been using them since 72 with no ignition related failures in racing or all the street vehicles that have been maintained. Most critical is the fit of the rotor, it should be very hard to install, very tight fit. If loose the rotors have a tendency to rotate and move causing changes in timing and at worse damaging the cap and rotor.

SOURCE: number 1 spark plug for 2000 Mazda MPV

The cylinder order is 1,2,3 (rear row, left-to-right) and then 4,5,6 (front row, left-to-right).
When replacing spark plug wires or plugs, it's very helpful to do one at a time to avoid connecting them incorrectly.
Hope this helps, Sherwin

For Mazda Car 2005-06 Spark Plugs...

Inspection
Inspect the electrodes and ceramic insulator.Burned or worn electrodes may be caused by:

Advanced ignition timing Loose spark plug Plug heat range too hot Insufficient cooling
Fouled plug may be caused by:
Retarded ignition timing Oil in combustion chamber Incorrect spark plug gap
Plug heat range too cold Excessive idling/low speed running Clogged air cleaner element Deteriorated ignition coils
Do not adjust the gap of platinum tip plugs; replace the spark plug if the gap is out of specification. The gap should be 0.049-0.053 in. on all models except Mazdaspeed6 or 0.028-0.031 on Mazdaspeed6 models.

  1. Replace the plug at the specified interval or if the center electrode is rounded.
  2. Apply a small quantity of anti-seize compound to the plug threads, and screw the plugs into the cylinder head finger-tight.
Removal & Installation
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions section.
  2. Remove the battery cover.
  3. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  4. Remove the plug hole plate by lifting off and removing the plug hole plate from the installation areas (rubber and clips) as shown in the illustration.
  5. Remove the front suspension tower bar (joint).
  6. Remove the ignition coils.
  7. Remove the spark plugs.

To install:
  1. Installation is the reverse of removal, tighten the plugs to 8-10 ft. lbs. (10-14 Nm).

The coils might be wire in reverse polarity. The FSM diagram shows that the B/W ground wires go to the terminals and the yellow striped wires go to the - terminals which is different than most.

I have an 84 mazda rx7 and all it does is crank over but it doesnt start


The engine is most likely flooded. I worked at a mazda dealer a long time ago and the best way to fix it is to remove all 4 plugs and wind it over Not touching the throttle at all.Take an oil squirt can filled with engine oil and put a couple squirts in one spark plug hole of the leading and one plug hole of the trailing.Again turn the engine over about 10 seconds without the plugs in. Wait 20 mins and reinstall the plugs (all 4) then try starting as you would normally. IF this dosent work,,get ur buddy to hook a ROPE to the front of it and tow it.Once you reach about 30 mph with the transmittion in 4th gear let the clutch out (with the ignition switch on so lights r on on the dash) . Let ur buddy tow it a bit like that without touching the gas at all and it should start.IF it dosent,,keep on towing but play with the throttle and it will soon start to run on its own.These engines are the worst thing I ever seen to get going after their flooded.Thats if that really is the problem.Not too much goes wrong with them so Im betting this will work.

Spark Plug Wire Sequence


Your firing order is 1-5-3-6-2-4 and your #1 is the cap terminal the 3 O'clock from the front so that would be the one towards the driver's fender and the rotor rotates clock wise. So the next post would go to the #5 cylinder. Hope this helps friend. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your truck running 100%.

Exact spark plug wire placement


Turn the crankshaft till the timing mark is at 0...Check where the rotor points...if towards the back of the engine, turn one more time till it points to front. It is now at #1 on cap. Plugs are 1357 on left bank, 2468 on right. order is 18436572 in that order around cap in the direction the rotor turns when cranking.

2002 Madza 626 has fire but seems like it's not getting gas


I had a similar sounding problem: my '02 626 would turn over but not start and I know my solution will sound strange but it worked. To start with I had a 4.5 year-old battery and I cranked on the starter until the battery started dying. I then left the car in my driveway overnight and the next afternoon, when I had time, I hooked it up to my battery charger (set on 'fast charge' ) and I pulled off one of the spark plug wires and tried to ground it then had my 17 year-old turn the starter over to see if we had any spark reaching the plugs. The car then started! While I was holding a spark plug wire in my hand! I replaced the battery that night and have not had a problem since (about 4 weeks ago). How old is your battery? Take it to a parts store that does battery diagnosis and have 'em check it out... It may just be your culprit.
