Looking at a 1996 mazda 626 6cyl dohc manual transmission. Car has been running great. Drove home from work, locked it up, come out to start it and it just cranks over, no fire. I smell no gas and I have no spark from the distibutor. Have 12v to coil and the 5v to coil. Is there a inertia switch that needs reset or possible a fuel cutoff relay bad. Any help appreciated.

    may have lost ignition control module or distributor is bad, first thing remove distributor cap and check rotor button, is possible it just maybe time for complete tune-up. if it has not been done in a while..

    Primary voltage is there . The 12v, 5v and ground. Coil ohmage(resistance) is good for primary and secondary. If ignition modulator is bad. Would this also stop my engine from injecting fuel. I have no fuel delivery either. Resorted to try to find a inertia switch which could be rest, but was unable to find one. Cracked open the fuel line to discharge the pressure so as to hear if fuel pump was going. Could not hear running. Recracked line. No pressure. Jumped fuel pump relay. Fuel came out. What ever it is, it is disabling both ignition and fuel.

    This is a mulit componet distributor, it has the module and coil inside along with the usual componets! The distributor assembly is the most likely suspect. However without testing it is not a given. There is still a timing belt and crankshaft sensor to consider as well If you are SURE there is no spark. Your best bet is to do or have some testing done before throwing on parts!

    I appreciate you responding to try helping. Here is what happened. Drove the car home from work. It has been running great. Tuned up less than 2500 miles ago. Plugs wires cap,rotor and oil change. Also a new radiator has been put in. Timing belt is turning. Tight no slack. I have no fuel delivery or spark. Primary voltages 12v, 5v and ground are present. Removed crank and cam sensors. Bench tested to checked for signal ability. Both are working properly. Also checked by manually cranking engine to trigger position, working. Cant find a inertia switch anywhere either. Cracked fuel line open. No pressure. Jumped fuel relay. Fuel is pumping. Any other things I could check. Thank you for your help.

    Fuel pump needs distributor input or reference to run. If you had another dist. just plug it up , ground the housing, key on, spin the dist., check for spark! Key= another distributor! Which I think is your problem.
