Have a 94 MX-6 v6 5 speed
Vehicle has started sporatically to hesitate/miss while driving down the road. You would be driving down the road and for a brief second its like the engine
shut off, the momentum keeps engine turning then it fires up and keeps going. Occasially the engine shuts off for more than that hesitation and can not run for a few secs.. then continue to run. And then finally the engine shuts off and will NOT fire back up. (Engine could go for 100KMs or 10 kms.. totally random)
If i put the clutch
in and release it so the engine catches it sometimes fires back up and often would backfire THEN continue on without a issue it seems for a little while.
Sometimes. If the car
totally wont run i coast off to the side Turn the key off and then often just restart and away i go. Somtimes it wont start right away .. and have to wait a couple secs, or minites and then it fires up and i go again.
the annoying thing is that it does this totally random. I could go up to 2 hours and nothing happens.. or i can go 2 mins and the engine stops for a sec and either continues on or such.
Little more history
The last time i had this happen i had a massive backfire and then i could not start the vehicle again totally dead ( turned over fine but no run/start) .. Shop took it ( No mazda dealers where i live) and the timing belt was shredded.. so they repped all my belts and reset timing and they got it running jut like before. I got 10 mins away and was the same ole shutdown i felt before.. but only for that brief second and was able to continue with the odd blurp in the engine. I cna tell that the shut down is onyl a matter of time.
thank you in advance
