Mazda Repair Questions? Ask Mechanics for Answers ASAP
Hello, I'm Brandon - Mazda tech.
The ignition coil is bad therefore it won't fire any spark. You have to replaced the ignition coil.
I recommend using factory Mazda coil from the dealer. Not aftermarket.
Please rate me positive for the prompt service, thank you!
Which engine do you have 2.3 or the 2.5 ?
You might have burnt the coil.
I would recommend replacing the ignition wires.
First replace the wire and re-confirm the car.
Then if still does not spark. Do this:
Check spark output using a timing light. Attach the timing light to each cylinder one at a time. When the problem happens check to see if the timing light cuts out. Check spark output at the ignition coil. Spark should jump a minimum of a 3/4 inch gap.
Take your volt meter put the positive probe in the coil connector touch the metal part and the ground probe on the ground. What is your volts?
Have someone crank the engine.
When you crank the engine. It is still .5?
Tomorrow, change out the ignition wires and replaced the coil. The coil is shot, it is too low.
Please rate me positive , thank you.
Ok great, thanks. Keep me posted.
