1992 Mazda 323 Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 1992 Mazda 323

Misfires under load (acceleration) can be caused by leaky spark plug boots. When a spark plug boot leaks, it allows the spark to arc, or jump, to the cylinder head. New spark plug wires will be needed.

If the automatic transmission shifts in and out of overdrive while cruising, it may be due to the thermostat that is stuck open. The 323 transmission is especially effected by the engine running too cool. If possible, check to see the engine is running at full operating temperature while cruising. The temperature gauge in the 323 may also read normal when the engine is not reaching normal operating temperature.

A loose or corroded ground terminal on the driver's side of the cylinder head can cause a rough idle, misfires, and there may be trouble codes. Restore the ground to the cylinder head.

A great little car! Gets in the mid 30s for mpg but still is a blast to push around the twisty back roads around here. Not to mention there are a range of motors that are direct swaps and easy to find in any junkyard if the factory 82hp motor isnt enough for you.
