Engine Missing After Distributor Replacement

Recommended Posts

Hello All !

I have just replaced my cracked distributor with a brand new one.
It was running great for a day or so, and then i got a bad series of misfires along with corresponding blinking engine lights.
It only seemed to happen once the engine warmed up, I had my mechanic look at it, same thing.  It didn't act up until way down the road.
Could it me a bad alignment of distributor, or could it possibly me something else such as a spark plug, wires, and or fuel injector issue.
All help is greatly appreciated. 
Thanks in advance you Mazda gurus !!!
I ALWAYS find GOOD help HERE !!!
Sincere Mazda Warm Regards From Indiana

Which year is your 626?  Did you replace a cracked distributor cap or was the entire distributor cracked?

Given a heat related misfire, I would ohm out the coil and make sure it's well within spec.  If it's marginal, replace it.  If you didn't replace the plug wires when you replaced the distributor/cap, I would do that as well.
