Question about 1992 Mazda MX-5
This gentleman has written a pretty good guide for checking and adjusting your ignition timing and idle - http://www.mx5oc.co.uk/forum/forums/t/208.aspx
Try adjusting your idle - I wouldn't be surprised if this is not your problem (or only problem). If the idle is still drooping (or cutting out), you might like to think about checking, cleaning or replacing your air filter, cleaning your throttle body and possibly checking the correct function of your two clutch switches which can all cause similar problems.
The clutch switch problem is becoming somewhat more common now - have you tried idling the car without A/C? Then experiment with doing the same with the clutch depressed and then with the clutch depressed and a gear selected...if one of these combinations stops your idle problem, you'll probably find one of the clutch switches is dead. The purpose of the switches and the reason for the problem is a little complicated - if this turns out to be the case, reply and I'll try to explain it properly.
