  5. Shaking horribly

    What year and what engine? What is the idle RPM? What is RPM in drive foot on the brake?
  6. Shaking horribly

    I've owned my 626 for a year now. First car. I've been able to actually drive it for about 3 months. It has 128k miles. I've replaced the motor mounts, radiator, spark plugs, compressor, CV joints, head gasket, belts. Harmonic balancer and the idle was I believe just tweaked? My mechanic said he couldn't find a new one as mine was bad and decided to fix it somehow. I'm clueless with that unfortunately. Just picked it up again today 3rd time back at the mechanic this week. Originally picked it up Monday after spending $1800 on work. When I'm moving it's fine rides smooth. When I come to a stop light ect it shakes which you can very clearly see and hear inside and out of the car. I don't know what to do. Any help is appreciated!
  7. Last week
  8. Clutch sticking to the ground

    I bled it a few times and it seemed to have worked. Must've been the clutch master cylinder. But now it's a POA to shift. Where i gotta push hard to switch gears. Like i said before it was shifting just fine a week or so ago. Any other ideas?
  9. 1997 Capella S/W with Mazdaspeed goodness

    Can not stand the 4 speed slusher on this. Useless to me - it works and changes good but I hate not being able to choose when/where I want to change gears myself. I find myself thinking I'd have changed gear now or I wish it would change later. Driving this engine until it dies. The only FE-dohc engine some guy has build and wants $3000 for it along with a rwd gearbox and will only sell it whole. ABS lights were because of the ABS pump. Heap of money wasting crap. Sort of fixed for now. This just drives and feels like an unresponsive appliance - sure its good for its age and mileage. I'd feel a bit more warmth towards it if it was 5 speed, maybe. The unfortunate truth is that motorcycles have my soul. I get on my CBR and I just cringe when I have to use this. I look at the TX5 and I want to fix it. Funds are not there though. No one can tell me if GE spider gears will work in a GD gearbox which is a pain - I've hit the wall at the research stage. If I knew, I would get a junkyard box, swap spider gears over. Sure its not elaborate but at least it would be drive able once again.
  10. Clutch sticking to the ground

    Pressure plate, release bearing?
  11. Clutch sticking to the ground

    Hey y'all, i've been having recent issues with my clutch catching and sticking to the ground. To get it back I have to pop it back up with my foot. But with it constantly sticking it makes the car undriveable, i've recently replaced the slave cylinder and also the clutch cylinder. No luck. Before this happened it was shifting smoothly and never got caught. Anyone have any other suggestions? I'm open for anything! Just wanting to get my daily driver back up and running smoothly.
  12. When you start the car and you have nothing electrical running (heater/lights), the battery should read 13.7 to 14.7 volts? When you turn heater on, does volts on the battery drop? If yes turn off heater and turn on rear demister. Does the engine revs drop, and volts on battery drop. If yes, check your alternator out put. If the alternator is OK, it could be the battery (check battery connectors and earth) If alternator and battery OK you could have a bad connection somewhere. I had a car many years ago that kept loosing power when I reached 50mph or accelerated. Found the connection had come lose on the coil. Everyone was telling me it was a fuel problem. I hope this helps? If not let me know.
  13. Ok so I cleaned the throttle Body and The IAC cleaned up nice verified that it was working properly with volt meter and apply voltage reinstalled did new gas filter and the gas regulator valve while I was there , put it all together made sure there where no leaks and I still get the same results the car run fines until you put the heat on or try to put the windows up or down at a stop and this only happens when in driving the car at a stop not in park sitting in the yard , really need some help here as this is our only car at the moment and just can,t figure it out , my friend said check transmition fluid level or egr valve , some help please as I am out of work so money is tight and can,t keep spending money only to have the same issue thanks for your time
  14. Serpentine belt replacement

    I am trying to replace my serpentine belt which as far as I understand it is also the radiator belt. My question is there any way to replace this belt without having to take off the head of the engine block to get way down to the third pully that is not seen. Or would it be best to take it to the shop instead.....(very last option). Please help. Thank you. Jdb
  15. rough idle

    **** Update ***** I have finally solved the issue! It ended up being the old valve cover gasket. I changed it and now it idles smoothly!

  18. Indicator sound but no indicating

    it could be indicating that there is a problem? (ill show myself the door) have a feeling that it may be the immobiliser or a relay. thats as far as im willing to go just in case im heading in the wrong direction.
  19. it could be me, but when idling, the tacho bounces up and down and the motor seems to not find a comfortable place to idle. it usually bounces in the region of 650 to 850rpm. new champion plugs, all gapped to 1.0mm as specified in the manual, oil changed, no fuel problems, and runs as good as ever. but it still concerns me that its floating around like it is. solutions?
  20. Earlier
  21. Car is a 1983 626 LX coupe 2.0. While I'm stopped at a light, the steering column vibrates a lot, as does the engine hood. Engine doesn't sound rough, idle doesn't seem high. Is this normal? Is there anything I should check which would normally damper the vibration (like engine mounts)? Thanks for any advice. :)
  22. Doors aren't "catching"

    Thank you for this advice - I'll definitely give it a try and report back once I do. :)
  23. Odbii Protocol For 2001 626 2.0L V4

    used and OBDII reader on my 2001 mazda 626 and got a short list of codes however the codes and descriptions dont exactly line up the way they should. My codes read with numbers that have crossed descriptions. Not sure why. But it reads, and the dsescriptions are crossed.
  24. Started my Mazda 626 last week and I had the same problem. The car had been standing for nearly a year. I pulled the throttle body intake off and gave a quick squirt of Wynn,s air intake & carburettor cleaner into the throttle body. Now runs perfect. Hope this helps
  25. Erratic Shifting

    Hi All, New here as I just inherited my brothers old I4 4 speed 626, still going strong with 534,000kms on it When I first got the car off him, I drove it home, 2 hours on the highway and thought it was odd that it was sitting 4,000rpm on the freeway. Some investigation last night showed that in 'D' it will stay stuck in 3rd gear and won't really do anything else. We also discovered that the 'L (1)' position on the shifter allows the car to shift from first to second and shifting it from that into '(S) 2' position allows it to go into third and then fourth. If you put it back in drive, it will go bezerk and downshift into 3rd after a moment. We tried turning the hold function on and off but it has no affect on what happens. Has anyone ever heard or something weird like this happening or know what might be causing it?
