Mazda Repair Questions? Ask Mechanics for Answers ASAP
Was there any service or anything done to this prior to this happening?Will the car start right back up after it stalls?
Try unplugging the mass air flow sensor and see if it will start and idle for you.
Please let me know.
Can check for spark or fuel when it won't start?
Possibly spray some carb cleaner into the throttle and crank it to see if it will fire
can you feed it carb cleaner or starting fluid and keep it running?Also, have you tried flashing any codes out of it?
Code reader isn't going to work on it, it's to old for OBDII.
If you have spark it should run on the carb cleaner...Makes no sense to be honest.
HERE is a link for flashing the codes using the check engine light.
See if there is anything stored.
Doesn't seem like you have spark if it won't run off the carb cleaner.
that's the check engine or service engine soon light.
Once it starts flashing you should see long and short flashes. Try to put this together to come up with a code.
Are you saying when you turn the key on there isn't a check engine light coming on?
Well, if the light isn't even coming on for the first three seconds with the key on, we will never be able to get the codes if there are any.
Can you do a compression test on this?
Seems like it would not be the problem. But you are pretty much ruling out fuel as the problem because it won't run off the carb cleaner. This would mean fuel and spark isn't the issue. All that is required is fuel, compression and spark. Something is going away and must be staying away to prevent the car from running.
Does the car have a remote start or aftermarket starter on it?So, the light does come on. Make sure your jumper is secure in the correct to slots. Even if there isn't any codes that light should be flashing when you turn the key on with the jumper in the 2 terminals.
You need to double check your jumper when you are putting it in the terminals. It should blink even with no codes. You got something going on there.
