Condenser usually is placed closer to the dizzy.
Negative from coil, through condenser, through to points.

u have to make sure nothing is draining the battery. It sounds like a drain or it may be a fault in the ignition (starter etc) if all else is working.

check if the negative terminal of your ignition coil is connected to the condenser of your distributor.
also, make sure that the negative terminal of the ignition coil is not connected to the negative terminal of the battery / body ground.

check the ignition module, poss near the distributer for heatsink (contact) paste on the base to draw the heat away from the module. With the engine light coming on, it should have thrown a code possibly a bypass ignition or no pulse while cranking. If so refresh the ignition module.

1991 Honda Accord won't start. Battery seems ok


Sounds like the distributor. But you may have a faulty replacement coil..get an exchange and see if it is faulty. I have received many replacement parts that fail prematurely.

Car just stopped running. Lost power suddenly.


Find an inductive pickup indicator for spark. Place on distributor cap to see if spark is at coil internal tower. If no spark at internal tower, look at ignition module or pickup coil. Ignition modules are prone to failure on 626's. But if you have spark at tower but not at the wire end, then your rotor is gone.

I've had three sets of ignition coils go bad on my 2001 Mazda Protege ES within approximately 18 months and 20,000 miles. What could make these coils go bad??


Major problems with 04 rx8s. Flooding etc. Many motors replaced under warranty. Check your plugs, heard that could be a problem, and not sure about this, but also heard that the alternator and voltage regulator my have something to do with it.

2001 Mazda MPV upper front oxygen sensor change


No you don't have to move any of that you need a "crow foot" type oxygen sensor it looks like a short brake line wrench that you can put a 3/8 ratchet on it with an extension. This will help you to get this sensor out. Good Luck

I don't have a solution to the problem, but Mazda should. I have replaced 3 different ignition coils in the last 3 months. I am spending more on repairs than I was in a car payment. Mazda has been no help at all!

Wont Start


Have another look at your plug wires, and make sure that you have them in the right order. As you probably know, if the firing order is wrong, you can have problems. That is somewhere for you to start, anyway.
