Having problems with your 1995 Mazda MX-6 ?
Is there a way to know if you have a park plug issue or spark plug wire issue?
To check a spark plug it must be removed from the engine. The insulator should be a light golden brown with no oily deposits. The gap should also be checked and compared to the specification in the owners manual or a repair manual. Spark plug wires can be tested with a spark plug wire tester. A tool that looks somewhat like a spark plug with a clear section in the middle and a clamp on one end. This tool gets plugged into a spark plug wire and clamped to a ground or the engine block. Start the engine and check for spark through the clear part of the tool. Also run the car at night or in a dark garage and check to see that none of the wires are raking.
