The capacitor is used in an ignition system to charge up in the rest period and suddenly discharge in the firing cycle. The reverse flow of current through the coil causes a rapid decay of the electrical field in the coil and produces the big spark. If the condenser is faulty the coil field takes too long to decay so you get a weak orange spark that has trouble jumping the points

The Tail Lights Are Accessed From The Inside Of The Trunk There Will Either Be A Panel Immediately Behind Where The Light Is Or Carpet. Remove It And It Will Give You Access To The Rear Of The Bolts Just Grab Twist And Pull And The Light Will Come Out.

SOURCE: mazda 626 2.2 litre voltage to the coil but getting no spark.

either the coil is bad, or distributor may be bad. test the negative side of the coil then trying to start the car with a test light. the light should flash on/off. if it does not flash, either a wiring problem or distributor is bad.

Where is the ignition coil module on a 1994 Mazda 626

The ignition module is integrated within the ignition coil itself, and the only repair possible is to replace the entire coil assembly. There are six ignition coils, therefore there are six ignition modules.

How do i plug in the spark plug coils? what order?

If it's the four cyl., the first coil pack bolts over the #2 spark plug. The #2 coil pack wire plugs into #3 spark plug. The number two coil pack bolts directly over the number four spark plug, and the #2 coil pack wire plugs into the #4 plug. The firing order is 1-4-2-3.

Spark plug firing order

check the ignition coil power source...get a test light & check for power with the key on @ the positive side of the coil...if it does have power have a friend crank the engine over & check the negative side for a flashing light..if it does then make sure you have spark @ the coil if not replace the coil
