Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here
In order for the engine to start and run you need good spark, injector pulse, proper fuel pressure (32 to 45 PSI) and good compression. You need to start first with checking each one of these things and post back with which one you are lacking and I will help you find the cause.

ok I well open fuel line and check for fuel pressure .and pull a spark plug to check for spark . I live out in Tanana Alaska no service station I have to do It myself
Mazda Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
The fuel pressure can be checked by installing a fuel pressure gauge on the fuel rail service port. Let me know and we can work from there.
