recently replaced water pump, & have codes PO106(MAP Sensor), PO506 (Air Idle Control Motor), & PO128 (Thermostat).
appears that I have a leak from my tranny on the bottom side in the center where there is a round black cover about 2 in in diameter?
My car is actually a Mazda Lantis, which is similar to the Protege. The problem is very sporadic and has been occuring for just over a year. One minute I'm driving and the engine is fine, then next it starts shaking, sounds very rough and loses power and/or is extremely slow to accelerate. In fact you have to depress the accelerator further down than normal in order to get it to move and it's even worse going up hill; it barely moves. There's a strong gas smell and I've been told it's noticeable to vehicles behind me as well.
As I mentioned, it's very sporadic. When it's misfiring, it can last 5 seconds, 5 minutes or even for the entire drive. The misfiring can go in and out and there doesn't seem to be any particular cause; it happens when it's idling in traffic, going up a hill, driving on flat road. Some times I get out of the car to go to the grocery store or drop off my children, then get back in minutes later and it misfires on starting. Weeks can go by without any problems where the engine is running nicely and then it happens again. Or, as it usually the case, it occurs at such dangerous times as just before you turn into incoming traffic. I've learnt not to take any chances when turning across vehicles or using roundabouts as you never know when it will start acting up.
We've had two diagnostic scans which didn't reveal any codes and I've been informed it could be anything from ignition coils to sensors. I'm extremely frustrated and want to know how to realistically diagnose the problem without randomly (and expensively) changing parts. Thank you for any help you can provide me with.
There is a huge variance in prices quoted. I assume that has to do with whether it's got ABS or not. True?
I had my tires checked and balanced, no rubbing from the tire, wheel, or wheel wieghts. i recently changed both front brake pads and rotors. I put new rear bearing seal and repacked the bearings. Did not change the brake calipers (that is my next thing i am gonna try). I was convinced it was a wheel or tire rub because it started after a tire repair and rotation and balance. No grinding or squeeking just a low winding sound with a little shimmy or vibration but not all the time.
wvery time this happens and seems like getting louder
on the flat or cruising it works fine, just heats up when you get into the turbo hard
while makeing turns and makes a noise, it just started doing this
power folding mirrors travel too far

I recently just had my steering column replaced and now the dash shows service stability system is it expensive
I turned off the truck and now my trailer break box acts like the brakes are on. I moved the senors by the pedal and the light. I try to start it but the lights come right back on but still will not start.
