Engine Mechanical problem
1995 Mazda Truck 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual
1995 mazda B2300. Sometimes it will not start. Playing with it I have started it 3-4 times without driving it and then around the 5th time it will not start but it cranks over at what seems a normal speed. Will a bad alternator cause this. The battery has gone dead twice. Have not had the lights on to see if it drains the battery while driving but today after using the air conditioner for awhile it just died at a stop. The battery was dead and it started with a jump. Got it home and while it was running, disconnected the battery ground and it died. Bad alternator? I dont have anything to test the amps with. I would think that the alternator is bad but cannot figure why it starts and then dosent start and then after awhile it will start again, and this is without jumping it.
have the same problem?
