1991 Mazda B-2200 Pick up 2.2L mileage: 128,000. My truck has an intermittent no start problem. When it does start, it runs normally. When it does not start, the only time I get a spark from the wire, from coil to the distributor is when I release the ignition key from the start to the run position. How do I determine where the problem is? The truck has a manual transmission, nonfuel injected, and standard ignition. I have asked this question at several other web sites and no one has responded. Is this that tough of a problem to solve? Thank you.

Your occasional no start problem may be a faulty ignition switch. When the car is acting up (no start) check for 12 volts to the coil. If there is no voltage, then the probable cause is the ignition switch. If there is 12 volts, it may be a bad ignition module.

My truck was doing exactly the same. I needed the wire part (the less expensive part)of the ignition switch. It runs from the mechanical part where the key goes in to connections up under the dash. It was a bear to get to the connections up under the dash, but once installed, the new wires solved the problem. Starts every time, now.
