Question about 1992 Mazda MX-3
It starts right up, idles fine then dies after a couple seconds. If you touch the accelerator it dies instantly. I think it's a fuel problem. If you try to start it again right away it won't start but if you turn the key to "on" for a coupe seconds (giving the fuel pump a chance to run) before you try to start it, it fires right up... then dies again. It ran fine yesterday, today... this. It did this a couple days ago but it finally kept running then was fine for a few days. Any ideas? Fuel pump? Fuel pump relay?
Before you replace the fuel pump, I would check the cheaiper parts first. Such as fuel filter and injectors.
