    No this car doesn't have a distributor, it has 2 coil packs connected to the spark plugs....I have replaced the KNOCK sensor ($300) which made no difference. I have been told maybe I should change the CRANK sensor???? is this different to the knock sensor????

If this vehicle has a distributor, try replacing the pickup coil. This should be located under your distributor cap and is responsible for spark. When your engine compartment gets warm from normal conditions, this plastic piece of **** shrinks and the metal tab attached to it doesn't make a good enough connection to conduct the electric spark to your plugs. Hope this helps!

Mazda 1990 323 1.8L LX, 5 minutes after the start up she stop no way tos restart again only when sitting about 1/2 hours start again but stop....

Start by having the charging system checked,unless the car engine spins but doesnt start,if it spins over and wont start then it not the charging system,when the car dies check for spark, remove a sparkplug wire insert a screwdriver in boot and place 1/4 inch near metal and crank engine and see if theres spark,this will help pin point your problem if theres spark then the next thing to do would be to spray starting fluid in throttlebody and see if it starts,hope this helps let me know the results.

Mazda 323 stops every now and again wont start leave for hour starts ok does this every now month or so suspect crank censor year 2000

this vehicle is the same as ford in regards to wiring and computer software but only on US models us in europe have to put up with encrypted software and manufacturers pins in the OBD II connector.When it doesnt start pull a plug lead off and stick an old plug in to see if any spark,no spark change sensor ...spark and no start then sticky fuel pump.if both working and no start then engine immobiliser could be at fault try the spare key eliminate all posibilities
