1994 Mazda Protege Q&A

1994 Mazda Protege Question: engine cranks but won't start

1994 Mazda Protege. The engine cranks but won't start. This has happened 2 times in last week. Not the battery. I have a mechanic who says he can't do any diagnosis unless it won't start for him. -

Pretty much true. Not a whole lot of clues come up in a 1994 Mazda (or most any vehicle). You need to kind of catch it in the act to see if spark or fuel is missing. Could be a fuel pump, could be a ignition issue (coil, etc). Could be a relay. Hopefully you will catch it in the act. Good luck. -
