    Wheel sizing - deathtrap?

    Death trap? Not really. It'll make some noises and rub. Fwd Mazda offset is generally around +40 to +50. Its +45 on 14" wheels for the GE 626. Possibly a combination of too wide tyres with slightly different offset - max I'd go for is 225 myself. Jack it up and take a wheel off to see where its rubbing.

    No crank, no start.

    I hint at bad ground my daughter has an 08 6 she would go out go to crank it lights come on go to crank loose all power no nothing. I traced it to a bad ground wire (Negative Battery Cable) cut it off as short as I could. Put on a new one $8.00 at auto parts store & sanded a place on the body for a good ground she's had no trouble since....... Bad ground will make that alarm go nuts at times try negative cable first............. So my opinion is with NickR (Bad Ground)

    No crank, no start.

    Definitely not the fuel pump, because the fuel pump has nothing to do with the engine cranking. You say you turn the key and sometimes (when it won't crank) the "interior" lights don't come on? You mean the lights on the dashboard don't come on? That sounds like it might be the security system, or the ignition switch, or some sort of fault in the wiring, like a bad ground.
  7. Hey! I'm a new member who's been looking arround the internet, but still have some questions. Im looking at a 1991 626 2.0 glx sedan (90hp) with 340k kms, but looks to be in good condition. If mileage isn't an issue, what would be suggested mods, and problems to look out for with this model? 90hp engine, this is an FE DOHC or? I want to put it on coils or stiffer springs, recommendations? How is the stiffness of this chassis, and how should improve this? Opinions on linked car? Here (Norwegian web page) Any help is greatly appreciated!

    No crank, no start.

    I have 2001 Mazda 626. I have been having problems with the starting in the car for a while, I had the battery, alternator and starter fixed. All brand new. But my car is still acting up. It will start once, run just fine and keep going until you turn it off. Then it won’t start back up. There’s no crank at all. I turn the key once after shutting it off and the interior lights come on, turn the key back and then try it again, no lights at all. I will leave the car and come back in a few days to a few weeks and hope that it will start again. Sometimes it does just to have above happen over again in cycle. Many people have given me their opinion that it might be the fuel pump or the security in the car and I was looking for more opinions because as I stand, I ran out of money to take it to the shop. If it is security, I don’t know if this would hint towards that option, but when I unlock the car with key (I don’t have a fob) the alarm will still go off unless I very quickly turn it on before the alarm sounds. It’s not every time I unlock the car but pretty close to. Thanks for the help.

    NO Start, Replaced Coil . Now What?

    So I went ahead and ordered a Crank Shaft Position Sensor, based on the fact that I have no RPMs showing on Crank. Comes in on Friday, Hopefully early enough for me to install it before work. If that doesn't do it, then I'm going to be stuck and I'll focus on fixing my wife's POS Chevy Equinox.

    I do now. Thank you very much.

    Do you have a workshop manual? This is 98 but same for 99. http://www.pmx626.info/US/Mazda 626 & MX-6/Work Shop Manuals/PDF/1998 US Workshop Manual.pdf

    NO Start, Replaced Coil . Now What?

    Also, I checked for voltage on the Crank sensor connector with switch on only, and got 1.5 v.

    NO Start, Replaced Coil . Now What?

    I checked for power at the coil pack connector. Nothing present with switch on or at cranking. Would a bad Crank Sensor keep the Coil pack from getting power?

    NO Start, Replaced Coil . Now What?

    On further checking, I think I was wrong about the 12 volts. Hmmm. I sold my 2002 626 some years back, so I can't remember exactly what crank position sensors it has. But I think there's one down by the crank pulley. For the 1993 to 1998 cars, there should be resistance of between 520 and 580 ohms between the 2 wires going to that crank position sensor. I don't know if it's the same for the 1998-2002 cars, but it might be worth checking the resistance with your multimeter. Then I think there's a second one on the rear cam shaft.

    NO Start, Replaced Coil . Now What?

    Belt is present and turning the cams. Certainly not a broken belt. I was watching a YouTube Video on the Sensor, and that's wait I gathered from it. All good points. Now I'm motivated to go out in the Cold Cold and get back to diagnosing the problem. Thanks for your comments Nick.

    Timing happiness

    I appreciate the post I recently purchased an 01 626 from an Independent Dealer. Stumbled on the Car by Accident on way home from work a route I usually don't take but was detoured, had 116k & looked like it had just rolled off the show room floor asking 2650. Bought it for 2300.I've been extremely worried about the Timing belt, has a great service record info from (mycarfax.com)has everything ever done to the car but nothing on a timing belt change. No real answer as to close Interference Engine or not needless to say Ive been saving to get a timing kit not a DIY on this a little beyond my scope of fixing them but this info made me do a little dance. it's a great car still gets 27mpg shifts great (Except when its cold 1st to 2nd will snap your head back) runs great no problems scared to death that belt would snap before I had everything saved up & the Engine would be done for............ Thanks Again. PS: From what I've Read the people got rid of the Car shortly after the rattle in the trunk came about had rear struts replace a month later it was traded needless to say this Mazda forum helped me solve the problem w/rear sway bar bushings...........

    NO Start, Replaced Coil . Now What?

    Those codes are all O2 sensor codes? I don't think they would help explain a no spark problem. Timing belt broken? As a quick first check, remove the oil filler cap, look inside and check to see if the cam gear turns while a friend tries to start the car. (When did you last change the timing belt and tensioner?) When it cranks, does it sound different from normal, like the engine spinning more quickly? As far as I know, there isn't supposed to be voltage going to the crank position sensor. It's the crank potion sensor itself that sends a small electrical pulse to the ECU. But since you don't have a code for the crank position sensor, my guess would be that it's not the problem.
  19. I've been on and off this site for years. My Original Owner baby is real sick, and I know their are some real Genius's on here. So I'm laying my chips on the table. Okay, So here is the story. It worked Monday, wouldn't start Tuesday Morning. I poked around here and else where Looking for Possible causes. Getting no Spark to the Plugs. I opted to order a new Coil since the Plugs and wires are new. Got it Friday, installed and no such luck. Put a multimeter on the line for the Crank Shaft Position Sensor. NO Voltage (Assuming it has a 12V feed) btw, where does the come from? I didn't have a Scanner, but one of my coworkers gave me one.... :-). Here are the error codes I'm getting. P1131, P11333, P0400. This is my only transportation to work, Public Transit it a one way trip only, and I have already spent most of my disposable income for the month on that replacement coil. So it 's all me getting it fixed. As much as my baby needs work, I can't afford to just replace everything. Gotta get her running then put the budget for what I can repair later. Kinda sucks. Any and all suggests, greatly appreciated.

    Need help finding parts

    Junkyards. Try car-part.com.
  21. I bought a 1990 626 back in April for $400 It has a dent in the driver side by the lights (I'll attach some pics) but I can't find any where that sells those parts. I've tried fenders, quarter panels, nothing. Any suggestions on where to find those parts?

    Try going to one of the online Mazda part houses and look up the part number. It's likely not available from the factory anymore. But, I've had reasonable luck searching part numbers on ebay and finding NOS parts there.

    I need one too..someone told me to go to a salvage yard
  25. This is the Mazda 626 forum. They stopped making the 626 in 2002. You have a Mazda 6, which is a different car. I think you should try asking your question in one of the Mazda 6 forums, like the one here: https://forum.mazda6club.com/ Good luck!
  26. I have a 2006 mazda6. This problem started 3 days ago and its a real pain because I cannot drive at night. I was sitting in my car listening to the radio and when I turned it back on the headlights didn't work. However, my wipers would turn on when I tried to turn my headlights on and they wouldn't turn off. Also when I go to use my blinker the wipers turn on and won't turn off. I am wondering if anyone has any ideas on what is going on and How I can solve the issue. If you do please let me know! Thanks -Cfalk802

    Code 626 (V) GF 2.0 Turbo DI 101hp

    Hi, Have a 626 GF diesel 2.0 101 HP, and the glow light turn on , always blinking at the same speed when motor is on. Some times takes 1 ir 2 minuts to star blinking. After seeing it on Google, I did the following test on the diagnostic box that is in the motor compartiment ( IMG_20181125_142625.jpg ) but i did not use the led, the wire was direct from FEN to +B . and the result was this: https://youtu.be/Qep6P8cBHbI Can you help?? I am from Portugal. Thanks and sorry my English... This is the vídeo

    changing engines

    If using the ECU from the 626 is not possible, the next solution I can think of would be a standalone such as a Megasquirt. Any reason you want to swap the KL as opposed to a V6 from a Camry, outside of you simply having one lying around? The KL is a good engine and decent power for the size, but there is limited aftermarket support and not much additional power to be had. The V6 from let's say a 1995 Camry is already more powerful. People started throwing the Camry V6s into the MRS, so I feel it has a lot of support. On top of that, did you check the transmission positioning and the axle splines? If they differ, different axles/hubs/spindles may be needed which also means different bearings, calipers, rotors, etc. I'm not trying to discourage you. As long as you are prepared to put in the work, go for it.
