Fails to start

  • Hi guys my mx3 V6 has suddenly decided not to start it turns over but doesn't fire up any suggestions please as where to start looking

  • Hello,

    First i would start by checking all connectors and make sure nothing has come undone.
    Then check the air intake pipework, if it has split then this can cause a non start.
    If that's ok then check the spark plugs, see if you have a good spark.
    Then move onto the fuel system.
    Then move to sensors but unlikely to be them.
    Hope this helps.

  • Thanks for the advice I don't seem to get any sparks ,I want replace the distributor but having difficulty obtaining one of the correct part any help please

  • Hello,
    Your welcome for the advice.
    With regards to to dizzy you have 3 options:
    1 Replace the dizzy.
    2 Replace the coil inside the dizzy.
    3 Perform a HEI mod, doing a search will give more details of this.

    I myself went down the option 3 route as its a common fault that happens ox the MX3.
    Also there is a possibility that you change the dizzy or coil and the same thing will happen again.
    I've heard of some people changing tjere dizzy 4 times in the space of a year where as others have no trouble at all.
    The choice is yours to make.
