1998 Mazda Protege QuestionsRefine by vehicle
They look like regular V belts,but I'mtold they are serpentine
it has check engine light on and want pass inspection
Sometimes when I flip the turn signal switch it comes on, flashes a few times and then stops. Every now and then (but not as much as the turn signals) the cruise control does the same thing. The turn signal problem has gotten progressively worse over the last weeks and now most of the time they don't work at all. Help! I'm not a mechanic, but I can follow explicit directions.
happens gradually at about 5weeks and continually gets worse until i have to replace them. I have replaced all plug wires. The electrode end of spark plugs look good. It arcs from the base where the porcelain insulator goes into the metal. They dont all arc at the same time . It is erratic and the car idles fine with an occasion mis. The hotter the engine gets the worse it gets especially under load. I had it put on computor and it says that i have bad spark plugs but it doesnt say why they keep going bad.
Transmission about ready to go? I hope not. I have a '98 Mazda Protege with 115,000 miles, 4cyl auto 1.5L. Seems to be maybe 2x a month I'll turn it over and if I get to around 25 mph it'll rev and redline and not want to shift into 3rd. If I continue driving for about 5 or more minutes it'll shift fine, but I've got to go s l o w. If I stop, turn it off turn it over again it'll drive fine. Haven't taken it to a mechanic yet but I fear the worst... Any insight is appreciated!
I have a busted carriage bolt to the engine and need to get it repaired. How much does it cost to fix this at a shop.
I have a a 1.5L 4 cylinder with an automatic transmission
the theft deterrent wont go off after replacing the battery. the car wont start.
How am I sure that it is my alternator?
My car started stalling out at red lights. I'm not sure if it is a 1.5 or 1.8L engine. Putting it in neutral or park works, but obviously won't fix the problem. Have any idea what is the problem?
