You may have lost (went bad) a coil pack which feeds ignition fire to two of the four cylinders. Leaving it to run only on 2 will sound terrible, run rough, and have little power.

You got it, definetely is the symptoms of a bad catalytic converter including the smell.
Fortunately there is only one

You may also notice that if the vehicle is idling for awhile and you look underneath the exhaust may be glowing red in some areas, extremely hot
Hope this helps

Mazda 2000 mpv does not start


Couple of things it could be.

Try turning it over without touching the gas pedal. Sounds like you flooded it.

Check the coil and engine management sytem. Its probably that.

2000 Mazda MX-5 1.8i intermittent misfire problem. (It's not a Miata but the website didn't have an option for a normal MX5!) Sometimes the car starts with what sounds like only 2 cylinders firing - it...


All MX-5's are MIATA'S. the coil pack may be bad. 3000 rpms at 20mph, sounds like the trans is slipping if it was an automatic trans. it helps when you tell EVERYTHING about the car, like what trans is has, ect.

Intermitten starting issues with 1993 Mazda MX5 Miata


Sounds like a heat sensitive sensor--either the crankshaft or camshaft unit. Is the check engine light on? If so, rent a scanner, read any code(s), and pursue to repair(s).

Mazda mx5 abs light


most likely it is just a blown bulb.. and opening up a dash on the newer vehicles is a very tedius job... so unless you have like a full week end and another source of transportation i hate to admit but i would turn it over to a pro to do..lol... i have to admit it is kinda funny.. turn your car over to a shop... to change a light bulb...most likely a #194 bulb...
