Customer Question

mazda(###) ###-####1.8 hatchback The car was fine and then I ran out of petrol and now it will not start. I have checked the fuel pump and it is working. There is fuel getting to the filter. I used rapid start on the pistons and there seems to be a spark but appears to be weak. I have cleaned up the plugs and gapped them but still no good? Do you have any advice please ?
