92 Mazda, B2200, intermitent starting problems
My Mazda truck has been having intermittent starting problems for a couple of weeks. On 4 or 5 occasions during the past month it wouldn't start. If I leave it for a short time (usually 10 minutes or so) it starts. The problem isn't a frozen gas line, or flooding and I am getting spark. It turns over ok but won't start. This past weekend it wouldn't start even after sitting overnight. I had it towed to a garage and of course it started then. They couldn't find any problem. Any help out there???

1990 in the U.S.A. Your intermittent no-start
condition is most likely electrical. One easy
thing to do (if you're mechanically inclined) is
next time,check fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge. If no pressure exists, the problem
may be either a pump ( take off the gas cap and
listen for a humming noise while someone cranks
the engine) or lack of power to the pump.There is
only one relay on this system,its located near the battery. Also,check your fuses.
fuel-injected. Cars.com is mistaken. I am a technician in a Mercedes dealership who works
down the street from a Mazda dealer. Both the
Service and Parts managers at the Mazda dealer
tell me that the B2200 came fuel injected from 1990 onward. Only in certain markets were these
trucks still carbureted,as likely the truck in
message 8. But few of the carbureted trucks were
made after 1989.
