1989 Mazda 626 Repair Question
89 626 2.2 cranks, will not start - intermittantly
I replaced the Vane Air Flow Meter, vroom, and it ran great for a few short trips. Failed to start in my driveway the other day, used my Mustang GT. Next day went out and it started right up without touching anything. (I think it must be a girl car.) Ran fine for a few days, started every time. Tonight it cranks, will not start. I loosened the big rubber tube after the VAFM and spryed starting fluid into the intake and it started and ran on the starting fluid and stalled shortly as it was used up. It is as though there is no fuel - seems to run fine if it has something to burn.
I am going to clean up some corrosion around the battery terminals tomorrow after I get it towed home (again) and see if that does any good.
Any other ideas? :?:
Well - borrowed a Toter this morning, got a helper, drove to the other side of town, cranked but did not start, pushed it onto a toter, towed it home, unhooked the Toter straps, put the key in to release the steering, thought "why not" and hit the starter, vroommm, there was an immediate start. :shock:
I did not do anything to it except tow it home!!!!!! :roll:
It seems like there is an issue with fuel delivery. Sometimes there is fuel and life is good. Sometimes everything else is there except fuel. Can it be a corroded contact somewhere? Circuit breaker? What?
I'll have some time to look at it later tonight any ideas gang????? :?:

I had a Dodge Neon that did that. It turned out to be the fuel pump. :roll:

if no fuel is problem during no start, then the pump and it's associated electrical feed mechanisms are suspect.

Interesting. The server says my answer was successfully submitted, but I don't recall opening this question and there is no answer from me. Before this, that is.

Nevermind, I figured it out. the timing belt slipped. Still dunno why it had compression some of the time.
Thanks for your help.
