We have a 2002 Mazda 626 we recently noticed that the transmission feels like its is slipping. What should we do a transmission flush or no? Also could it be the timing belt? We had a oil change done yesturday and they said we need a new timing belt.

Get that timing belt replaced before it jumps. bad things happen if a timing belt jumps. Do we have an interference engine or no? Because then it would be really bad.

If the transmission is actually slipping, don't bother fixing the engine up unless you plan on rebuilding the transmission, otherwise you're throwing money away on a car you will likely junk.

What is the actual action that you notice? I don't know what slipping means. I do know this. Recently my radiator hose burst and sprayed fluid all over the engine. It shorted out some electrical part that controlled the transmission. I'd be driving at 35-45mph and the car would suddenly decide it needed to be in neutral or 2nd gear and shift. It would also ease up during idle from 750 to 1100 then back down. I got the part replaced for about $180. turns out it was a part Mazda has revised twice since my car was built.

I'll have to find the bill to remember what part it was.

How much are timing belts to do it at home and is it easy? the shop wants 288.00 to do it . Also on the maintenance estimate based on visual inspection they say we need transmission oil flush at 30k power steering fluid and hoses flush 30k and a fuel system tune-up service. also cooling system flush.

This is an E-mail I received yesterday after I asked the tech at mazdausa. There were buches of guys on probetalk that thought we had an interference engine. We don't. Here's the e-mail:

Hello Andrew,

Thank you for contacting Mazda.

Your 1994 Mazda 626 2.0 liter engine is a non-interference motor that uses a timing belt. The older model Japanese designed 1.8 and 2.0 engines were non-interference motors.

Sincerely,

Steve P
