Ok seen a lot of these questions and i may have a solution that isnt usually stated in the responses to this problem. I just got my exhaust in and was going to take the car to put it on. Just my usual luck it dosent want to start, i checked the fuel and the plugs were soaked plus i pulled the plugs and had decent spark. I got new plugs and aired the cylinders out so there was no excess fuel and still nothing. I tried messing with the timing and when i rotated the dist. there was all kinds of clicking and switches turning on. I set it back and it clicked again, i did this several times and kept getting the same results. I checked the harness and found that when i moved the forward most wire on the dist. i got the clicking, after cutting the loom back i noticed the wires were bare and touching each other tripping multiple relays. Once the wires were seperated the car started fine. I also have a friend with a 94 mx-6 we checked his wires and they were almost in the same condition. I am not sure if this is a common problem but its worth a check if you have spark and fuel and the car wont start but appears to try. Hope this helps some people.

back on this issue does anyone know where to find replacement connectors? I want a new one plus the harness is too short so its really straining the wires.
