1996 mazda mpv wont start?

Asked by Stephanie Jul 09, 2020 at 06:54 PM about the 1996 Mazda MPV 4 Dr ES 4WD Passenger Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1996 mazda mpv that will not
start. It cranks normal. Just no start.
So the other day I was driving and then
the reverse went out. So I went and got
some lucas transmission fix put it in
and then had to leave. I come back a
few hours later, start it and it starts but
dies a few seconds later and hasnt
started since. The battery will not hold
a charge on it either. I have switched
batteries changed the distributor cap
and rotor checked the firing order as
well as switching the crankshaft
sensor with another (used) crankshaft
senser..I couldnt afford a new one. I
have been told that it's not getting a
spark..the fuel pump turns on as
well..But I am still unsure as to why it's
not starting...I need to get it running
asap and I just cant seem to figure out
why it's doing this!
