As the title really driving home tonite engine dies, it had stumbled a couple of times on the way home the nothing. The roadside service bloke said no spark I've not checked myself yet.

So anyone know the best way to check out which bits actually bust. Coil or ECU? or Distributor thing?

TIA Jeff

Start with the primary spark wire. It's the one leading from the starter. It's just one wire going to the distributor. If you have no spark on that it's your starter. If you do have spark it's your distributor.

Ok narrowed it down I've got the coil in the distributor one and the coil is cracked (You can see it arcing when you pull the cap off)

So it's off to the wreckers from me.

For a laugh I called Mazda for a quote, the don't sell the coil but they'll sell you a distributor for $1957.

Wreckers??? It's not that bad. You can fix her!

RockAuto only has 1 ignition coil left for a 1997 Mazda 626 2.0L w/Standard transmission for $72. RockAuto is a sponsor of this site so it's ok for me to promote their products. They have one of the best selections for 626 parts anyway.

Hell you could get a reconditioned distributor from them for about $140. Would you really send your car to the grave for the difference of about $200?
