Question about 1993 Mazda MX-6
I took my son into the church parking lot to teach him how to drive a 5 speed manual. He kept "hopping" and stalling the car and after several times of this (which is normal for a beginner), it wouldn't start. It acts as though it wants to, but it won't catch. We tried putting in new spark plugs and jumping it, but nothing works. The car is a Mazda MX-6 but it has a Ford Probe engine (4 cyl DOHC), which seems to have the same basic parts. Please help!
See if the fuel pump primes the car when u put the key forward listen towards the gas tank do you hear a buzzing sound? if not u need to replace the fuel pump..
replacing the spark plugs on the motor is not fun at all i bet u guys had a real good time doing that haha..

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.
