Question about 1999 Mazda Protege
Obviously you are not getting any spark through the wires to the spark plug. The fuel is still being fed into the cylinder and that's why your spark plugs are fouling with excess fuel.
There are so many areas to check for no spark.
Verify that you have +12v at the coil (+)
terminal? If not, look into the wiring, fuses, ignition switch etc.
And also check the voltage at the coil (-) terminal while cranking. It would normally be about half the battery voltage. A reading of +12v indicates that
the module's not firing, whether because it's bad or not getting the right inputs.
The cam position sensor, which is built into the distributor can be an issue, or the distributor itself.
You may want to have a repair shop begin the methodical process of eliminating each of the components.
