Question about 1994 Mazda Navajo
It will start approximately 3 times and then becomes finicky for the rest of the day. I may have to wait 10-30 miuts and then it will start. I replaced the computer once and it was good for 2 years. then I replaced the computer last summer when it acted up again and it began being finicky after 2 weeks (used computers each time). A friends soninlaw a mechanic thought maybe coil pak?? When I won' start i do not hear the fuel pump. Could it be a relay switch or something? Its odd cause the other day here in upstate NY its not real warm yet about 30 degrees and it began again to give me trouble after 3 good starts I had to wait an hour for it to kick in. Thanks for your help.
You don't give any info on vehicle, engine...etc, but I think your friend is right about the coil. You have to try and determine if it's fuel or spark. Could be your fuel filter....

Have you checked that you have power to the coil on cranking?You may also want to check wether you have a good strong spark at the spark plug.It could be an ignition module breaking down.If you have no power to the coil you may need to change the ignition relay.Its close to the battery.

check the mas air flow sensor(is this the 6 cyl) the sensor has a problem with the nose piece inside not moving enough to tell the ecm the propper air flow for the cold start,also check throttle valve for dirt build up around it-if its a four cyl repost

i would ask the mechanic to check the ignition switch for pitting ....i had this problem with my honda accord for a long time until i finally just switched it for the second time and sanded it down to the point that it would touch but not keep contact to make the pitting .... hope this helped

Not a solution but i am going through the exact same nightmare and same symptoms with my 1991 mazda b2200. I've apwnt over two grand to have my rebuilt TWICE and my alternator replaced and still does the same thing just starts only to die 2 seconds or so later unless i let it warm up to its max but will still die when taking turns and stopping at lights.
