1992 Mazda 3 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic
My daughters car was not running well so I gave it a badly needed minor tune up including plugs, rotor, cap. Wires seemed ok. After wards I started the car and it ran wonderfully for about 30 seconds after which it stopped and would not start again. I traced the problem to no spark from the coil and replaced the coil. Same issue again, the car started ran for about 30 seconds and quit, restarted again and ran for about ten seconds and quit. Again there is no spark from the coil. Tested wire to coil only one of the two has power.
as update, car started this morning and ran smoothly until I cracked the throttle. Car then stopped running and I haven't been able to start again.
