2000 Mazda 626 ProblemsTransmission Failure Common
Premature automatic transmission failure is common. Diagnoses of the fault will be necessary to determine if repair or replacement is the proper repair.
If the engine cranks but does not start, it may be caused by a tripped inertia switch. Switch the key to "ON" and the fuel pump should be heard running for a second or two. Listen at the gas filler if necessary. If you do not hear the pump the inertia switch should be reset, it will "click" when it is reset.
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. If evidence of arcing can be seen on the inside of the spark plug boot, new spark plug wires will be needed.

The alternator needs replaced.. I can only. Find an alternator from a Mazda 323.. Will it work?
I took the car to get an oil change and when i got back home and turned it off and tried to start it again it will not crank at all. A friend told me to replace the main fuse under the hood and it keeps blowing. Could it possibly need a whole new positive battery cable? Thanks in advance.
I replaced the crank pulley and in order to keep the engine from starting I unplugged the coil pack. The engine ran just fine before I unplugged the original coil pack. Now even with new coil pack I get no spark. what could it be?
