SOURCE: Mazda MX-6 v6. One clyinder is not firing. Spark

Switch it with another and check if the miss follows the injector.
Also you should check for a voltage pulse at the missing cylinder injector connector.

SOURCE: how to set the timing on mazda mx-3

first you need to remove the timing belt cover and locate the timing marks both on the camshaft timing gear and crankshaft pulley and see if the timing mark synchronzed together while manually rotating the crankshaft pulley with a wrench or socket wrench and see if its rotates freely and if it gets really hard to rotate then you got the timing wrongfully set as it would do damage to your engine when you crank it up

What size motor does a 1993 mazda mx3 have?

The MX-3 came with three engine options: a 1.5 L I4 (only found in the Autozam AZ-3), a 1.6 L I4 and a 1.8 L V6. The 1.6 L was available in two versions, an 88 hp (66 kW) SOHC/16-valve B6-ME unit which powered 1992 and 1993 models, or a 106 hp (79 kW) DOHC/16-valve B6-D unit which was found in 1994 and later models. The Japanese market DOHC/16-valve B5-ZE produced 115-120 PS (85-88 kW) (lower powered in automatic versions) and the most powerful DOHC 24-valve V6 K8-DE produced 140 PS (103 kW) at 7,000 rpm (Japan) and 130 hp in North American models. All were available with a 5-speed manual or an optional 4-speed automatic transmission, depending upon the market.

Car won't start. Possibly fuel pump related.

Check the engine codes. That will give you clue where to begin repairs. See if youhave a spark on the plugs also.

Engine compatibility for a 1996 maxda Mx-3 precidia

If you have a 4 cyl motor, that any 4cyl will fit from an MX-3 (and a few other vehicles actually).

If you have a V6, then you can use any other MX-3 1.8L OR MX-6 OR Ford Probe OR Millenia 2.5L V6 motor (160hp)! You can import the KLZE (200hp) from japan for around $1300 and it will also fit (2.5L V6).

It might be an ignition lead faulty? They are known to have spark leaking at the suppressor. Give them a good check and let us know how you are doing.
