Car looses power, bogs down check engine flashes rapidly. No acceleration, then 15 - 30 seconds later power comes back and check engine light goes solid and stays on for 2 or 3 days.Anyone with idea?

You should read check engine code.
It tells you more than you can guess.
You can buy quality $1000 snap-on OBD scanner or $30 cheap one.
$30 will do good job. (you need to google after car tells you error code because cheap scanner shows only code but not meanings in plain English)

or you can visit local autozone and ask them read code for free.
unless you ask car itself, nobody will be accurate.

run the fault codes.problems may be from faulty sensors in the exhaust system, low fuel pressure, venting problems in the tank,loose connections to the ECM or MAP/MAF/VAF sensor problems

Mazda mx5 smoking problem

Please provide more details for analysis like:
- what is the mileage on your car?
- is it smoking continously or only intermittently? How much smoke is it?
- what colour is the smoke? bluish or sooty?
- does it smoke when engine is cold or hot?
- is your car losing power?
- is your car consuming motor oil and at what rate?
- has the engine ever been overheated?
- is there an engine MIL ( malfunction indicator light ) code flashing on your dash? If it has, then you need to get the workshop to run a scan of the engine's computer to find out what the possible faults are.
- by the way, is your mx-5 fitted with a rotary engine or the common 4-stroke piston engine?

1996 v6 model..loosing power but managed to get home working through the gears..but allways threatening to cut day would not start at all,and key warning light kept coming on,auto electrician did...

even though it won't start it should still be possible to retrieve fault codes. On an OBDII car your going to have to have a code reader tool, so either have your shop scan it or buy a scan tool. Post up your codes and someone should be able to helkp you from there
