Check battery. Could be loose connections or alternator


thank for your resonse the car turns over fine but just wont fire


How many miles do you have on the motor? I had an issue like that after i thought it could be the battery. Took it to the dealershipship and they gave me a brand motor under warranty. Mazda extended out the motor warranty to 100k now instead of 80k. Had it replaced 3 weeks ago. I had 80k on my old motor.
