I got a 99 mazda millenia and it will start and run sometimes but it doesn't have no power to take off what's causing this

It could be anything. Is there a particular symptom. The above does not describe behaviour but the effect of the problem/ Does the car misfire, does it not rev.
Just from what is above I would say it needs a bit of garage attention.
You can clean/replace the spark plugs and check whether the air filter needs cleaning/replacing/ Check the distributor cap and plug cables. See if there is water in the oil.
Please add mor detail and resubmit

I need to know where the plug wires go.from spark plug to distibuter cap on a 1986 4.1 coupe deville(cad.)

FIRING ORDERS NOTE: To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement. If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes in your book to reflect how your engine is wired. Fig. 1: GM (Cadillac) 250 (4.1L) V8 GM (Cadillac) 273 (4.5L) V8 Engine firing order: 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 Distributor rotation: counterclockwise 85872009.gif Fig. 2: GM (Oldsmobile) 307 (5.0L) V8 GM (Oldsmobile) 350 (5.7L) V8 w/EFI Engine firing order: 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 Distributor rotation: counterclockwise 85872009.gif Fig. 3: GM (Buick) 252 (4.1L) V6 Engine firing order: 1-6-5-4-3-2 Distributor rotation: clockwise 85872010.gif Fig. 4: GM (Cadillac) 368, 425, 472, 500 V8 Engine firing order: 1-5-6-3-4-2-7-8 Distributor rotation: clockwise 85872011.gif Fig. 5: GM (Cadillac) 429 V8 Engine firing order: 1-8-7-2-6-5-4-3 Distributor rotation: clockwise 85872012.gif prev.gif next.gif

Replacing ignition distributor

Remove the cap and mark the orientation of the rotor with a mark on the intake manifold. This way when you put in the new distributor, you can line up the rotor with the mark for proper timing. You still need to fine tune the timing with a timing light.

How many knock sensor has 1996 mazda millenia 2.3 s.And also the right side bank do not has spark is it possible of knock sensor!!!! thank You

The distributor may be broken, it's what provides the electrical current to your spark plugs. And emissionwiz is right, knock sensor has nothing to do with your spark plugs.

Tired of buying parts after parts


It sounds as though the distributor is giving up the ghost.

Can you hear any sparking inside the distributor? If so then the cap is tracked to earth and needs replacing. If you're not sure then remove the cap and look for any fine black lines which lead from the plug terminals to the base of the cap or to another terminal. These are conductive tracks and they drain away the current which creates the spark, so weakening the spark.

Is the rotor in good condition? If not then renew it.

Otherwise you need a new distributor.
