It is not the part that can be the fault but it is important that you check the fuel pressure- calibration and most important the ignition TIMING. So if you have spark on the plugs , fuel pressure at the pump, then the timing and valves settings must be checked.
So make sure that the timing belts are in order so that each cylinder fires at the correct timing.
Please check the fuel quality too.

SOURCE: No spark?

Hi, common thing with the mazda was the coil or the ignition amplifier going faulty, both of which are located within the distributor, the coil ususally gives the symptoms you describe, a weak spark. The coil is the most common failure aswell for your vehicle i would recommend a new one, also make sure distributor is spinning as it could just be a case of a broken timing belt.

Good luck Davelee

SOURCE: engine turns over but no spark at the plugs.

You can change pick-up coil, you need to remove distributor (mark where rotor is pointing first) Then you need to remove pin in cam gear on end of shaft to remove gear so you can remove shaft from housing. Then you can replace pick-up coil. Install in reverse. Note when removing distributor rotor will move to the right as you lift distributor out, move rotor to right of mark you made when installing distributor back in.

Do you have voltage to the positive post of the ignition coil with the ignition key turned to run? You do not mention that you have done any testing for system fault codes either, this is a very important test.

You may need check the spark plug. Cleaning or Replacing it could possibly fix the issue. Also clean or replace the battery terminals. Testing a different battery is another option to try.

No parts are ever replaced to resolve any vehicle issues

You have to proper test any vehicle systems that apear

Once all the answers are present, only then do parts get
installed if necessary

Things such as fuses & relays only fail here on these web site
blogs, for the most parts,way too much silly talk about nothing

From what I see on this site from people asking questions,

Truck wont start engine turns but wont fire

If the trucks turns over and does not seem like the battery is dead I would assume it is spark or fuel. Check spark plugs to make sure they spark. Pull one plug at a time hold it against side of engine and have someone turn the truck over for you. You should see bright spark from all spark plugs. If you do see spark then check your Fuel Pump to make sure it is getting power and is opperating correctly also check your fuel filter to make sure it is not plugged. Good luck, Hope this helps.

Hi i have a 90 mod rx7 turns over it has spark its got new plugs it has new battery and is getting fuel but still wont start what can you sujest could be rong with my car

Take a spark plug out, reconnect it to the spark plug wire and check for spark at the plug. Repeat as many spark plugs as you can. If you're sure it's getting fuel, you'll need to do a compression check, or make sure the tiiming is still correct. By the way what test did you do to determine fuel delivery is alright.

Car wont start i have a new battery, new spark plugs and wires

It need to have fuel and sparks to start.
Have you check to see if there is spark after all new parts?
If there is spark, then check if it has fuel.

To check spark, hold 1 spark plug touching engine chasis while cranking, if there is no spark then problem with the coils or ignition module.
To check fuel, after cranking several times but no firing, take out a spark plug to see if it wet.
If it is dry then no fuel. For this, problem could be following in order:
-Fuel filter
-Fuel pump
-Fuel pressure regulator
- Fuel injectors
- Fuel injector module.
Need to go through troubleshooting step by step before changing the parts to correct a problem. Good luck in finding a good mechanic to test before spending money in costly partts replacement.

1989 ford Taurus wont start. Started a few days ago and ran great. Now it just wont start. It has a new battery. It doesn't seem to be getting a spark.

Your distruber cap may need to be replace or re-aligned if your not getting spark. I would have someone check for spark. All this takes is a muti-meter or removing one spark plug and then plug back in and place the other end of plug to the engin to ground it. Then while trying to start have someone look at the plug to see if it sparks!
Good Luck!
Hope this helps!!

98 dode ram wont crank no spark

May have no spark due to a bad crank sensor, which is responsible for spark when it gets a pulse through the cars' computer.

Car won't start

Stang: Nissan had a TSB on weak spark related to the Altima's and Sentra's. It had to do with water getting trapped in the spark plug tubes due to the steam hole vents in the plug wires becoming clogged and/on the wires no longer sealing well to the motor, thus allowing water to accumulate into the plug holes. This would cause a weak spark condition. You would still get an injector pulse as long as the ignition can be triggered.
As far as fuses: There is a box on the driver's side which contains fusible links and fuses. Unless you are checking for power with the ignition on, most of the circuits will be dead because they are switched circuits through the ignition switch. The headlights will be hot without the key on, as will the running lights,horn and brake lights.
However due to the fact that you have light spark and have injector pulse, would tell me that you have power to the ECM. If you want to check circuits, buy a cheap test light and follow the instructions. it is a simple diagnostic tool for checking for open circuits.
Hopeful I might have given you some direction. Good luck.
PS: if you replace plug wires, do so with a good quality wire. I have found that NGK wires and the Original equipment wires seem to be the best quality, lasting the longest. Life time warranty parts mean nothing if they fail at inconvenient times and with frequency. Many of these warranty's are gambles made by parts houses based on the fact that people loose their information, don't keep the cars and or just forgot they had the warranty and went out and replaced the parts again.
