Question about 1992 Mazda 323
My 1992 Mazda Astina, a 1600 cc carburettor model ex HKG (I lived there for 12 years and had the car sent here to Melbourne) has suddenly quit running, no spark, can't get parts, but advised to use same year Ford Laser engine parts, now no longer available new, to fix problem, but can't get any tech support, (wiring diagram or other info) that might help to identify the problem. My feeling is to remove the distributor and coil and get them tested to identify the faulty part, since 2nd hand dealers are loath to accept returns on parts wrongly diagnosed, can you advise where I might get help to test parts or get help, Mazda here are not particularly helpful with imports. Ford are helpful, but it means towing the car at some expense when I might be able to do it myself. (I'm an aircraft electrician (retired) by trade.)
If you get a after market workshop manual for a kf/kh laser (also have mazda wiring diagrames in them).best look on ebay.the motor in the earier laser and mazdas is very similar.i am a laser /mazda fan.i own at least 3 of these cars love them..check to see if you are getting power to coil first.this would be no 1 to check.if all is okay at this point then the dissy.a good auto elect should be able to test for you.when you get a manual just follow instructions on removeing the dissy.put on top dead centre 1st before removing.this makes it easer to replace.i live in nsw
