Question about 1997 Mazda 626
I have a crazy problem so to make it easy here ya go.
- 15 to 30 minutes of cranking and it will start and run fine
- cylinders will flood out on intial cranking
- fuel pressure is good
-spark is great
- timinmg belt, tension are new and right on
- noticed welding done to the exuast manifold, believe the ECU might be fried because of this.
This is just really funny, because once it starts it runs like a top. But don't shut it off. Almost forgot, no stored or current codes.
Would initially suggest that a compression test be performed as well as check for vacuum leak especially on the intake manifold to cylinder head.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
