Hi there
You may need to do a few more things: * Change Spark Plugs * Check HT Leads * Check Battery Voltage * Fuel Filter * Get a mechanic to check your Carb settings.
As i say this could be either one thing or the other but could be a combo of these.

I have the same car and i've worked on it alot so theres a few things you need to check out.
But if you repost on here please give me more details: ie, ill the starter crank,

Hi my mazda 323 99 won't start I thought it was the battery but I charged that up and it worked then I thought it could be the fan belt came off but that's not the case. I'm no thinking it

step 1check for spark take off coil lead then unscrew plug pop the plug back into the lead and hold it to the block turn the car over if it sparks then you know there ok
step 2
turn on reds on dash the listen out for a buzzing sound this would be fuel pump if no sound fuel pump could be faulty hence why car won't start!

My 89 mazda 323 turns over but wont start

Last week my 323 89' Mazda stop working as I was driving it in middle of the street, I pushed to the side. it would not start, the starter sounded ok, but the car just didnt start, I checked the fuses, gas pump, and all seemed to be ok, finally with the help of a friend we found out that the ignition rotor at the distributor wasnt working we then replace it with a new one from autozone , is about 5 dollars, now it works just fine, big problem easy solution.

Engine will not start

could be your distributor contact point. if you do not have contact point, then the electronic part that replaces your contact point. some called it the electronic ignite r.

you should concentrate on the spark. you can check the presence of 12 volts in your coil while starting.

the primary windings of the coil are the one in the clips or screws. check be sure that you have positive 12 v on one wire and pulsating negative from the other terminal. the negative pulses are coming from the contact point.

tnx 4 using fixya,
