Mazda 626 ProblemsKnocking from suspension on rough roads due to worn or loose sway bar links
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.
Premature automatic transmission failure is common. Diagnoses of the fault will be necessary to determine if repair or replacement is the proper repair.
Mazda 626 QuestionsWhy would i have water in oil? (1 answer)
I have a 1991 Mazda 626 5 speed transmission and i ran the motor to let it get warm, i pulled the oil dipstick to check oil level and oil mixed with water was spewing out of dipstick?
This is a manual trans. The handbrake problem seems to be near the handle at the console, and went from half-working to not working at all.
The cruise control system seems complicated, and has totally stopped working a year ago. Can you supply instructions for diagnosing/repairing these systems?...
I took the car to get an oil change and when i got back home and turned it off and tried to start it again it will not crank at all. A friend told me to replace the main fuse under the hood and it keeps blowing. Could it possibly need a whole new positive battery cable? Thanks in advance.
Mazda 626 RecallsIgnition Electrical Switch Overheats
The electrical portion of the ignition switch may lack proper grease at the contact points, leading to the points becoming conductive and overheating. Dealers will replace the ignition switch free of charge to resolve the concern.
