Question about 1992 Mazda MX-3

1 Answer

My Mazda mx3 starts up idles for a couple seconds then dies.

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.

Whether your key fob is damaged or just has a dying battery, there is a way for you to unlock your vehicle and start the car. Just follow the steps below:
  1. Press and hold the auxiliary key release button on the underside of the key fob.
  2. Grab the looped end at the top of your key fob.
  3. Pull out the auxiliary key.
  4. Use the auxiliary key to unlock the driver's side door.

HOW TO START THE MAZDA 3 WITH A BROKEN OR DEAD KEY

Now that you've managed to enter the vehicle with the auxiliary key, you're going to need to know how to start your Mazda 3. At this point, the auxiliary key can be put back into the key fob, as the key fob can still be used to start your vehicle. This will only take a few extra steps.
  1. Make sure the shifter is in the Park (P) or Neutral (N) position.
  2. Depress the brake pedal.
  3. The light on the engine start button should flash green.
  4. Take your key fob and touch the back of it to the push button start.
  5. When the green light on the engine start button stops flashing and remains continuously illuminated, press the push button start normally to start the engine.
  6. It is recommended you allow the vehicle to idle for about 10 seconds.

1992 Mazda MX3 is sweeking when I turn car on...might be some sort of belt but I'm not positive.


Sounds like the belt, you're right on track. Check the belt(s) and replace if neccesary. If belts are fine, check for tightness. Should be about a 1/4" flexibility when you push down on them. If all is ok, belt dressing should take care of the problem.
Now, if for some reason, one of the components that run off the belts may be going bad, specifically a/c compressor. If it's starting to lock up, it will make your belt squeal and finally snap.

Mx3 idle


your throttle body is dirty and needs to be cleaned- also, you might want to check the spring and the various parts on the throttle itself for wear and tear.

the intake for air and the flutter wing could also be hanging up inside the air intake
