Flat miss on cyl #6 on 3liter V6. It has spark and it has compression

Check the distributor rotor and the contacts on distributor cap, check that spark plugs are not dirty with oil, even if they are new.
If distribution is electronic take it to garage for scanner test.

What is the order of spark plug cables to the distributor for mazda 323 2001

On the distributor cap on each HT Lead connection there is a number presenting the spark plug connection with the cap. if the distributor cap has only the number "1" and not on the other hole for the HT lead connection then you fit the spark plug one lead and following the clockwise rotation fit the other HT leads. 1 for first spark plug,2-for second spark plug etc. First spark plug is fro the front of timing belt side. Good Luck!

Car wont start but kicks over

Since you do have A fully charged battery and also you do receive fuel smell after crank start and the car wont start,either you do have an Ignition fault means not giving the spark,advice remove the spark plugs and check whether are wet with fuel,see whether are black,if so change them and before start check by leaving an HT lead off a spark and use one of the old ones connected to the HT lead and earthed to the engine,ask somebody to start the engine checking for any spark comes out. If yes then put the HT lead back to the new spark on the engine and try. If ther is not any spark,then you have to go backwards from the HT leads to distributor,Rotor Arm,Electronic igniter,Coil if is fitted,Fuse and relay. Good Luck.

Mantis-20 will not start - have tried new fuel?

Hi, chances are the old fuel has gone bad and caused the spark plug to get muck on it, i would go out and buy a new spark plug then leave the plug out but fitted to the ht lead, then rest the plug on a metal part of the engine then try stating it and make sure you have a good strong spark between the gap in the plug, if you have a good spark then take the plug out the ht lead but also leave it out the engine, then keep pulling the starter for about 20 to 30 seconds to ensure you have only the new fuel coming through into the combustion chamber, you should be able to smell the fuel after few seconds, then put the spark plug back in and try starting it, you should find it will now start.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Hi, I am not aware of your skills level, however, some office "WHITE OUT" or white paint etc will vastly assist you to complete the task successfully. Pick a lead in the cap, mark it's location with a dab of white out / white paint, follow the wire, (HT lead) to it's spark plug, very carefully remove the spark plug connection and / or rubber boot if fitted. fit the replacement lead and route it back to the cap. Carefully remove the original cable and fit the replacement. Do the same for the rest of the cables,(HT leads) marking the cap as you go, ie, a,b,c,d or a number sequence your choice.. Remember, doNOT remove all cables at the same time. Change out one at a time, and you will not mix up the firing order.

It is a wise precaution to replace the cap and rotor,when you replace the cables, (HT leads.). .

Good luck.

Check for
