Mazda Protege QuestionsRefine by vehicle
when the car is shifted from park or neutral to drive,reverse or any of the lower gears, the idle would do a sudden drop and car will cut off. but if i keep my feet on the accelerator immediately after i shift in to gear it wont cut off but will if i slow down. I recently put in a fuel pump, rotors in the distributor clean the IAC and or EGR and throttle body. also have a bad idle and would cut off if AC is turned on while in park or neutral. would gladly appreciate the help. Trani seems to work fine but do you think it could also be a torque converter issue
If the oil light turns on can it shut down the motor? Motor did not rattle. What can also make the car shut down if it is not the oil light?
my O/d light turns on it blinks and the check engine light stay solid yellowand ask if I'm going 35 40 miles per hour I like goes into neutral or shifts down and when I park and leave it in park sounds like the engine is celebrated

Now seems to need a transmission. Getting quotes of $1300-1,700 just to rebuild. Is it worth putting that kind of money into it?
I have replaced radiator,thermostat,head gasket,and thermostat housing flushed system refiled with straight antifreeze,and wired both fans direct with toggle switch and still am overheating.
Still same and gerting worse whats next the injecter?
I feel a wobble or shimmy in the front left wheel, and it the tire might be having trouble rolling.
It feels like its sputtering when its running.
i ran a scan on the car and a code came up p1345 i was told that was the cam sensor so i replaced it and replaced the plugs and wires too. any thoughs.
It moves as much as 15 degrees advanced. The engine is idling rough. The check engine light is not on. Why is the strobe light so erratic?
I have noticed it while driving straight, but not as often
I have a 1994 mazda protege dx 4 cyl. and i was driving one day and it just died out of no where. i pulled over and walked to the gas station to get oil, because i was low and thought that might be the problem, so i poured oil in and tried to start, it will make the noise like it wants to start but it never turns over. a mechanic tested it and said it was the engine coil, i paid 80 and got one and this was not the problem. I do have air in my car, ive read about an air flow sensor? i dont know what that is. a couple people said it might be the fuel pump also. Just trying to get some ideas.
I replaced the pistons due to loud knocking; replaced timing chain but not sure if it is correct. What should I check now??
when i restarted the car it acteds like it was going to cut off low rough idle lungin sort of like when car runs out of gas and you get it running.. new plugs,oil, coils,transmission flush, car was perfect for the first 10-15 miles drove since vandalized then all of a sudden it sounds like a sick john deer tractor with a flashing engine light..surges,idlesrough almost dies, continuously,, doesnt get better
