1992 Mazda Other Repair Question
Ok I have had my Mazda Mx-6 1992 V6 2.5L FWS AUTO for about 1 month. Its been running very well with 196,000km on the clock. I took it for a drive today and noticed the car when at idle droped to around 400-500 rpm and would idle kind of like a rotary bet
Ive had a talk to couple other mates they saying get the spark plugs and ignition leads fixed. But the guy recommended getting this test done but surely the problem was obviously the plugs and ignition leads...
Anyway i need some advice please.
When the last time you replaced the sparkplug and also is the check engine light On or has flashed.
The compression check might be a good idea due to the mileage on it-if it was me I'll have it checked-

Hi and thank you for your quick reply. Well i bought the car 1 month ago so i haven't replaced anything. The car was regularly serviced and she showed me proof. The mechanic said cars plugs and ignition cables were in poor condition and 1 when pulled out did not make a difference to the idle so it was not working. Also I have been looking up symptoms for head gasket failure and haven't got any, my oil is also not discolored its almost the same as if was just replaced. I know the compression would be good but maybe a waste of money for a simple spark and ignition cable problem. Unless the test will confirm other things not as serious as head gasket failure?? But this is all i was told would be looked for.
Also no engine check light has flashed
Also no engine check light has NOT flashed*
If its not firing check that cylinder's compression.

Yea i think im going to go ahead with test. but reason for not firiring is the plug is rused and ignition sparks against engine out the side when pulled out so i thought the problem is right in front of the mechanix but hes still not sure.
