Run fault codes and look for cam/ crank position sensors faults. check that the cam shaft is turning ( broken timing belt/chain). Check that the immobiliser is operational.

SOURCE: Ignition system

I have the same model of car, and I have had this problem before. It is normally the ignition module. Check that the coil has power going to it, using a voltmeter. The coil should have 3 wires connected to it. One is the big HT lead, and then there are two small wires, one on either side of the coil. One of the wires is for the constant 12volt power source, the other is the control wire. With the ignition switched on, you should be able to read 12volts at one of these wires.

The other wire is the control wire, it receives pulses from the ignition module that is inside the distributor. Effectively this switches the output of the coil on and off, and controls when the spark plug will fire. It is difficult to detect these pulses without proper equipment, but a multimeter set to AC might be able to detect the presence of an AC voltage (although it probably wont accurately display the correct voltage), which would indicate that the ignition module is working.

If the pulses are not present at the input of the coil, then your ignition module is probably the culprit.

Open the distributor, and remove the rotor button. There is a round plastic cover over the ignition module, which must be removed. The ignition module is semi circular, and has four wires attached to it, via small screws. Take note of the location of each wire, and unscrew each one. The ignition module can be unscrewed with a phillips head screw driver, and removed. When fitting the replacement module, you must cover it with the heat sink compound that is supplied with the new module (mechanics sometimes refer to this compound as ignition module grease). Without the heat sink compound, the new module will over heat, and burn out. You should be able to replace the module in 15 minutes, it is very easy to do.

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!

Sorry for the delayed response.
If you still need the information:
The 1994 Mazda 323 does not have a V6 in it, It is a 1.6L Linear 4-Cylinder.

Mazda 323 timing marks


well, I hate to tell you, but they never made such a beast. 1994 Mazda 323 , with a 2.0 lt engine, and also no v6 was ever installed in a 323, now if you have the original engine that will be a 4 cylinder 1.6 liter timing mark on the crank and cam is at 12 o'clok., the cam says up, and you line up the mark at 3 o'clock, to the block, i hope you changed the water pump, coolant and rolers ?
