Mazda MX-5 Engine Problems

Which new MX-5 engine?

Answered by CarsGuide 20 Jul 2015

For road use I'd be happy with the 1.5 but, since you're going to be hitting racetracks, I'd definitely get the "big banger" 2-litre engine as it will be more rewarding to drive in those conditions.

ANOTHER possible cause of the problem. One worth checking.

INTERMITTENT problems are always hard to track down, but I doubt it's the plugs or leads. I would be looking at the engine sensors and making sure they are working correctly. I would look closely at the crank angle sensor. That can cause a problem like the one you describe.
