Question about 1988 Mazda B2200

1 Answer

Wont Start 1988 Mazda B2200 wont start after replacing,plugs, wires,rotor,cap and coil. What happenned? Cant figure what possibly could have gone wrong. Have done my own tune-ups before with no problem. Just finished putting plugs and wires on my 97Buick Regal. Pulled my Mazda truck in the garage today and replaced the plugs ,wires, coil, rotor,distributor cap and coil. The ignition system doesn't have points and condenser. My repair manual says its electronic. Have had this truck for about two years and am retired and use it for short trips and such. The only thing weird was when I pulled the coil wire off it had oil in the top where it connects to the old coil. Stumped by that for sure. Thought this would be an easy job of tuning but to my dismay the truck instead of running better wont start. Put the old coil back on thinking it might be the new coil that was bad. There is no one but me here so I cant see if Im getting any fire.Checked all the plug wires and have a good connection. Checked everything and cant figure it out. Everything was replaced exactly as it was removed. Please help.

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.

91 MAZDA B2200 DIES AND WONT START UNTIL IT SITS AWHILE HAS NO FIRE TO SPARK PLUGS WHEN THIS HAPPENS


I'd say the coil is shot. However when ot does happen make sure you still have 12volts going to the coil. This will help eliminate wiring issues.

Idling problem


need to adjust idle speed by turning air adjusting screw on throttle body idle should be 750 - 790 RPM. make sure spark plugs and wires okay. make sure distributor cap and rotor good.replace fuel filter do a little tune because if engine not fine tuned one bad cylinder will cause engine not to idle if you have fuel injection system clean fuel injectors by filling gas tank full add a can of seafoam to fuel tank see what happens.

When im driving my truck,it starts to sputter and


I would try spark plugs and wires. If it was a fuel line you would see the leak or atleast smell it very strongly. If the problem still exists after new plugs and wires try the distributor cap.

Will not start, no spark


get spark tester and start testing from the spark plugs back. first hook it to aplug wire and check for spark if no spark ten hook it to the coil wire and check for spark if no spark then there is a chance that your coil or ignition module is bad if it is equipt with electronic ignition.
