Mazda MX-3 Problems
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. New spark plug wires will be needed.
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.
Mazda MX-3 Questions
Just replaced the backup lamp switch and that's what iT does now they didn't work before.
I was driving and heard a pop and I pushed in on my foot clutch and coasted. It won't pull its self. The clutch is hard to move I can get it into every gear but first but they all sound like I'm in neutral.
I already replaced the distributor. Whats next? I have not been able to get the codes from the dia.

Mazda MX-3 Reviews
im from canada. Its a great engine and nice car. The rings wear out at 225,000 km (170,000miles) if you dont do proper maintanace. the engine sludges up if you do oil changes over 2800 miles. the rings are a sludge problem so engine flushes (dont use solvent based) are a must every 30,000 km. great power and smoothnes from engine and top of the line handeling at all speeds.
