2001 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.
The intake manifold gasket can fail causing vacuum a leak and/or a rough idle condition. Replacement of the leaking gasket will be necessary to correct this concern.
