Question about Cars & Trucks
Check spark ay ignition coil has strong spark.
Well if the number one wire is not firing but the other 5 are, either you have a problem with the distributor cap, or the pickup module in the bottom of the distributor.

SOURCE: No spark?
Hi, common thing with the mazda was the coil or the ignition amplifier going faulty, both of which are located within the distributor, the coil ususally gives the symptoms you describe, a weak spark. The coil is the most common failure aswell for your vehicle i would recommend a new one, also make sure distributor is spinning as it could just be a case of a broken timing belt.
Good luck Davelee

i had the same problem. there is a group of wires that go by the distributer and branch off to the distributer and go towards the front. when i would jiggle it the van would die. it ended up being a pinched wire.
