Mazda B2600 Ignition Module
Common Effects of a Bad Mazda B2600 Ignition Module
Your Mazda B2600 ignition module is very important to the functions of your pickup. It is the electrical device that controls how the ignition coil fires up the spark plugs. Without this device, your pickup would continue to run with a struggling engine because of irregular fuel combustion. Over time, the electrical components inside the module fail, causing problems with the part. When this happens and worsens, a wave of engine performance issues would come your way. With this, you need to know when you need to check your ignition module.
Strong fuel odor
This happens when there is a short circuit inside the module. This problem may be caused by extreme heat. The high temperature affects the electronic components inside your ignition module, affecting its operations. When the module fails, the spark plugs would not fire at the right time, causing irregular fuel combustion. This results in a rich fuel mixture that manifests through a strong fuel odor from the exhaust of your vehicle.
If your engine shuts down with no warning, it may be a sign that your ignition module is going bad. When this happens, the spark plugs are not fired at all, so no fuel combustion happens. This results in a complete stop of your engine. However, this symptom may also be a result of a bad ignition coil. So before you make necessary actions, you have to be certain whether the fault is at your ignition coil or your ignition module. This can be done by a simple electrical test.
This happens when a misfiring is caused by the module as your press your gas pedal. Because there is irregular fuel combustion, your engine runs rough and finds it hard to get enough power to accelerate. Again, this may be caused by a bad ignition coil, so you have to do the electrical test to be sure which part is going bad.
If your engine is making noises, it may be telling you that it is struggling. Because of bad fuel combustion, the engine is finding it hard to muster enough energy to keep your pickup truck running. When this happens, check your Mazda B2600 ignition module and replace if necessary.
