I have replaced the alternator and the battery.the battery has been replaced twice within the last two days.

My 1994 Mazda Protege with 120,000 miles stalls during warm-up. About 3 minutes after starting cold it will
stall several times. It runs OK once completely warm (after about 6 minutes of run time). Asking for
help to solve this issue.

I checked the fuel pump for correct pressure as well as the pressure regulator, both are OK.
The Idle air control valve is OK as well as the coolent temperature sensor and Mass air flow meter.
I replaced the throttle body gasket and added gumout fuel injector cleaner to the tank and replaced the spark plugs,
air filter and ignition wires. I would appreciate any help!!

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.

have what sounds like a knocking sound when going over small bumps. also i hear a creaking sound.

has great spark, no codes . still flooding. acted like it was going to start when holding accelerator to the floor, but still wont run.

why do i smell gasoline through my vents when the air conditioning or heat is on?

when car has laid for a while white smoke comes out of the exhaust pipe. what does this mean?

When I drive I notice a foul burning smell, and smoke...the wheel on the left side is very hot to touch. Then when it happens, I have to let it cool off because I can't get the car to move...the car also shakes when I drive at 60mph or higher.

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.

how hard is it to chance the struts

Coolant leak on '91 DOHC Protege coming from the seal between coolant bypass tube and the water inlet housing that attaches to the water pump. There's no clamp; only a rubber seal that fits over the end of the bypass tube.

The seal is very loose on the bypass tube, and is also too large to fit inside the inlet housing - is this supposed to be a "presses against the end of the housing" fit, or is the seal supposed to allow the bypass tube to slide into the housing?

Alternatively to replacing that seal, I'm wondering if I should just get a short piece of hose and clamp it over the connection.

Anyone with knowledge of this issue?

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 had it checked more than once and they said it is noting mechanically wrong with it. Sometimes it loud and sometimes its really loud, especially after raining.

I put diesel fuel in my gas tank and started the engine, how much will it cost to fix it.

when the AC button is pushed in and I turn the fan from 1 or 4 to 2 or 3 speed, the A/C green light goes off and the compressor stops running (clutch engaged)

The manual said something about an AC amplifier. Where is that located and how can I test it?
