Goid day. I replaced my timing belt of Mazda 323. 16valve. 2001 model and now it does not spark. When starting. Please help. I took it to Novel ford agents garage and they stil strugling

check for wires connected to the crank position sensor. Run fault codes and check for ommobiliser
Mazda and ford festiva run the same systems so they should not be struggling to fix.

89 ford festiva. Runs and Idles stalls when gas pedal is depressed

The two most likely causes are low fuel pressure because of a faulty fuel pump or filter, or a faulty throttle position sensor.
Is the check engine light on ?

I have a 1990 festiva and it will run until it gets warm then it dies.

It sounds like an ignition problem. Next time you are experiencing the problem, check to see if spark plugs are firing.I would guess ignition coil.

Dear sir
PLeas place back old ignition coil, if you getting this problem after long run or after car gets hot, it is problem of fuel pump ,if pump motor is faulty , then it can cause problem in hot condition , replace fuel pump your problem will solve. thanks.

Died like the key was turned off

I think you need to replace the pick-up coil under the distributer cap>The ignition modual can cause this but useually would'nt last for more than a few minutes.If you take off the distributer cap and remove the rotor button and then remove the plate under where the rotor button was you will find the pick-up coil.note;you will need a 5.5mm socket to remove the plate but a 7/32 in. socket can be tapped on.
