My Mazda B2600I Pickup is getting bad mileage, overdrive doesn't kick in till 60 mph and now it will turn over but will not start. Could it be electrical? This is a recurring problem after replacing the distributor and, electrical part of the ignition switch, TPS and everything else checked out ok.

I have a b2600i, pulling each plug wire causes no change to r.p.m. on cylinders 3 and 4. 150 lbs. compression all cylinders. New fuel filter, plugs, wires, rotor and cap.
