1992 Mazda 323 Problems

Crank but No Start Condition

If the engine cranks but does not start, and diagnosis shows no fuel pressure, the fuel pump relay is frequently the problem. If the fuel pump relay is defective, the fuel pump will not energize and therefore, not generate fuel pressure so the engine can run.

Idles Rough, Misfires, and Possible Check Engine Light

A loose or corroded ground terminal on the driver's side of the cylinder head can cause a rough idle, misfires, and there may be trouble codes. Restore the ground to the cylinder head.

Engine Cranks and Doesn't Start

An electrically shorted air flow sensor can cause a crank-no start condition. Diagnosis may show that ignition spark is normal, and there are no trouble codes stored.

Ignition Electrical Switch Overheats

The electrical portion of the ignition switch may lack proper grease at the contact points, leading to the points becoming conductive and overheating. Dealers will replace the ignition switch free of charge to resolve the concern.

1992 Mazda 323 Reviews

A great little car! Gets in the mid 30s for mpg but still is a blast to push around the twisty back roads around here. Not to mention there are a range of motors that are direct swaps and easy to find in any junkyard if the factory 82hp motor isnt enough for you.
