No Wet, oily deposits. Will cause weak spark and eventually misfire.Fault: worn bores/piston rings or valve guides; sometimes occurs (temporarily) during running-in period. Plugs can be re-used after a thorough cleaning. [ See pictures] [ A Short Course on Automoble Engines] Good Luck and Remember.

If you are aware of which two cylinders are NOT firing, I would change out the spark plug wires and the spark plugs with brand new for those two cylinders.

How many spark plugs are there in a Mazda 1.6 liter?

The number of spark plugs go by how many cylinders the vehicle has. If the vehicle has 4 cylinders then there are 4 spark plugs If the vehicle had 6 cylinders then there are 6 spark plugs If the vehicle has 8 cylinders then there are 8 spark plugs This is because of what the spark plug does. See, in a combustion engine, a small amount of fuel and air is compressed in each cylinder, and it has to be ignited to combust. this is the job of the spark plug. It gives the "spark" needed to ignite the fuel/air combo to force the piston down which will turn the crankshaft, which is connected through other things to the wheels. Anyway, if the vehicle is 1.6L it should be a 4cyl vehicle, therefore 4 spark plugs.
