    Stutter at start up

    Good Day , I have my 2000 626 4cyl. The engine stutters at start up or sometimes hesitates to start and just swings. I have Changed plugs, Mass Air Flow Sensor and cleaned my air filter and it still continues. Any help will assist

    If you use a regular bolt, it would block the flow going through the PS pump. A banjo bolt has a hole on the side and that hole runs to the bottom hole of that bolt thus allowing fluid flow to bypass through the bolt and into the pipe as it's designed. I'm not an expert in everything inside a PS pump so I don't know the damage it could do without the banjo bolt but I'm sure it will cause premature failure down the road. If you're going to temporally put a regular bolt in until you find the correct one, make sure you buy another pair of copper washers since they can only be used once. Again I am not sure what happens once you put the regular bolt in and start the car and drive it.

    Compatible Vehicles?

    Thank you
  7. Sorry for the VERY late reply as you might have already addressed this issue already. I did not have notification or "followed" this post. If you have validated that the part numbers are different between model years, I recommend grabbing any 93-97 Mazda 626 or probe and just pull the sensors off of them and swap it out with yours. However, if you live in a heavily salted region, good luck trying to get that off without damaging it. But yes you are correct.

    HELPPP ME PLEASE!! 2001 Mazda 626 V6

    I’m wondering if a regular bolt if used instead how that would effect the pump. I think I found the bolt that was previously in the old pump that broke. And it’s just a regular bolt. Which is stripped. And leads me to believe a new regular bolt in my new pump will just break my new pump.. or maybe last until I can get an actual banjo bolt for it.

    Ford probe, there's probably a lot of those laying around. Not sure if engine size matters in power steering pump bolt size.

    Those are called Banjo Bolts, with the hole that goes through it just like brake lines do. I have not removed one myself on these cars to know the dimensions and thread size, but what I suggest is ask the dealership if they have the bolt available to order, or ask a auto parts store if they have a kit full of aftermarket banjo bolts available, or go to junkyard and pull one out yourself. Or find it on every hidden spot around your engine bay, it will eventually show up somewhere where you can't see it, use a mirror and light.

    Compatible Vehicles?

    Hello! Would anyone happen to know if any compatible vehicles to the 2001 Mazda 626 V6. I am planning on going to a junk yard to find a bolt I lost that goes on my power steering pump.
  13. Hello, I recently have been working on my 2001 Mazda 626 V6 working with the power steering pump. I bought a brand new pump and lost a bolt. I can’t find it anywhere and I was wondering if anyone has ANY IDEA of where I can buy one. Please help. Any help would be appreciated!!

    NO Start, Replaced Coil . Now What?

    *UPDATE* Crank Shaft Sensor arrived Friday. Installed and Started. Notes of interest: The dip stick tube is literally in the way. Had to remove the Idler wheel assembly to access the bolt holding the tube in place. Thanks for all your feedback. Can't wait to do the timing belt, head casket and more. :-).

    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.
  19. 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.
  26. DanielM

    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?
  27. NickR

    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.
  28. DanielM

    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...........
