1993 Mazda 626 Problems

Misfires Under Load

Misfires under load (acceleration) can be caused by leaky spark plug boots. When a spark plug boot leaks, it allows the spark to arc, or jump, to the cylinder head. If evidence of arcing can be seen on the inside of the spark plug boot, new spark plug wires will be needed.

Engine Misfire Under Load

Vehicles with a V6 engine may develop an engine misfire under load (acceleration). This can be caused by a valve cover gasket leaking oil into a spark plug well, shorting the spark plug to the cylinder head. To repair this concern, the valve cover needs to be resealed and the spark plugs and wires should be replaced.

Surging When Driving in Forward Gears

If the engine surges while being driven in the forward gears, the intake tube between the mass airflow sensor and throttle body may be split. The damaged intake ducting will need to be replaced.
