SOURCE: mazda 6 diesel wont start

Have you run the car without fuel? There must not be any air in the fuel line... Blead the fuel line of air and try to start it. There should be bleader screws under the hood....

Why do my Mazda mx 6 cuts right off after starting like it's not getting any gas just put new fuel pump

sounds like you might have a vapor lock issue. Too much typing to explain how to troubleshoot but you will find lots of info Googling the issue. also make sure you're fuel filter isn't clogged.

My Mazda lantis does not start .I put some gasoline in the brake booster line and it will start and rev as normal but when I leave it for about 2 hours it will not start someone please tell me why?

if you are putting fuel in the brake booster vacuum line then the problem is that there is no fuel being supplied to the injectors or the injectors are not being activated by the ECM
Get the fault codes read before sometjing like a backfire blows the booster off the car

2002 Ford Explorer ran out of gas put gas in and won't restart. replaced fuel pump and fuel filter still won't start. Cranks but won't start

Most Fords have a fuel reset button. When you ran out of gas you tripped the circuit. Most of the time the button will be on the passenger side by the kick panel. The exact location should be in your owners manual or your local library or auto parts store will have a copy of one for your specific vehicle.

Had a question bout my mazda rx8 I was driving it one night it was running fine the next day went out and it won't turn over it takes awhile bit it finally starts and idles real rough and you give it...

Too many possibilities

Won't turn over is one problem -battery,cables,grounds,

Idles rough-- vacuum leaks,spark plugs never replaced,
egr valve etc

Worn O2 Sensors
Dirty MAF Sensor
Old Fuel Filter

You have to go into a lot of technical detail & history
on your vehicle, for us to even guess.

Mazda protege backfires when try to start it

SOUNDS like you have put 1 of the plug wires on the wrong way around OR you have got a valve sticking or burnt out so go back and check the firing order
on a 4 cylinder its 1342 and on a 6 clinder its 153652

First is there a charge for this service advise?

It sounds like an ignition problem. I would probably replace the plugs and plug wires first (I suppose they need replacment anyway). If that does not help, check your coil packs (the black boxes that the plug wires go into on the back of the engine - I think the 1990 had direct ignition system [DIS]), if not, replace the distributor cap and rotor button. Also, check the ignition timing.

most likelly when your fuel pump gets hot it looses the pressure going to engine replace fuel filter and if this dont help then have the fuel pressure test done when problem is present
