1993 Mazda MX3 Will Crank but Won't Start


Asked by Jul 14, 2017 at 12:47 PM about the 1993 Mazda MX-3 2 Dr GS Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I purchased the car after it had been sitting for two years
because of the clutch going bad. I replaced the clutch,
battery and alternator, and had the car running. When i
replaced the spark plugs and wires it would no longer start.
I've checked and rechecked the wiring order to ensure it's
correct. I've replaced the distributor, ignition module,
ignition coil, ecu, fuel pump relay, and ignition switch. I've
checked all of the fuses and the timing. I'm not sure what
to try next. Does anyone know what it could be? Also, the
motor is a swapped 2.5L KL series and not the original
