This is killing my battery.

There have not been any signs of this problem

once it blows can't connect the scanner

I have a 2001 Mazda Miata and the passenger window is not working. Would this be a bad window motor or a regulator. Could this be just a blown fuse. the drivers window still works but this is a different window switch

The clutch starts to slip. Thank you

For almost 3 years I've had this problem and no one has been able to troubleshoot it. My car occasionally jerks at highway speeds, and when I pull over, it knocks off. It won't start again until 20-30 minutes later after it has cooled. It has stalled at least 7 or 8 times while sitting idle at stop lights or in parking lots. I have to get people to push my car out of traffic and wait a few minutes for it to start again. I've noticed that my car acts up more in hot weather. Don't know if this is related to the stalling problem, but my floorboards get pretty hot in just a matter of minutes.

I thought it was the fuel pump causing my car to jerk and stall, but the last mechanic didn't think so. It's never been replaced and the car has 120,000 miles on it. The fuel filter and ignition coil have been replaced, but neither helped. If it's not the fuel pump or those other things, what else could be the problem?

a missfire and a catalytic converter problem. Replace catalytic converter about a year ago and problem still persists. Been recommended to get major tuneup, but no assurance that light will go out. Any other suggestions. Six months ago i had the catalytic convertor replaced again. Can't sell car unless light is off and can pass smog

recently the batterie was crossed and blew a few fuse to the radio and i believe a relay switch. its a green block located in the engine compartment fuse box, has the numbers B5B4 dc12v. when its plugged in. a part in the left back side of the engine will get hot, which then starts to drain the batterie.

I can drive for 40miles before overheating. No loss of water,

where is location of coolant temp sensor,already replaced the thermostat

have an 01 Miata that was parked for 1yr. Will not stay running. Just starts up and shuts down. The AD Fan fuse blows every time. Unplugged the fans and still blows. Any suggestions.
