    1999 Mazda 626 V6, 200k+ Original Owner
  1. My Mazda started with the P0400 code a few weeks after replacing the timing belt and water pump. Runs and Starts good enough to drive, but put your foot into the petal and the Check Engine light flashes indicating multiple misfires. Plugs, cables, Coil Pack, and Crank Sensor are new. I'm going to do aleekat's whole search list until I find the problem. My Mazda is no longer my daily driver, so I can focus on resolving it's issues without worry about getting to work. :-).
  2. 1999 Mazda 626 2.5 V6. I've got a serious oil leak in the back of the motor. It's hard to see that section because the power steering pump is right in the way. The oil is getting all over the passenger side suspension. I've recently replaced the timing belt, water pump and much more. Someone suggested it was the Oil Sending Unit, Oil Pressure Sensor, that may have broke and is leaking. Though I already purchased the replacement unit, I was unable to find any information on the location of the unit to confirm I'm barking up the right tree before I start ripping into the job. FYI: the head gaske
  3. What a prize. a 99 626 with Low Miles. Can't answer your question, but interested in the answer. I have an original owner 99 626 v6 with 216k miles. I've been slowly re-building the car while using it as a daily driver. Timing Belt, Lower control Arms and Ball joints most recently. I have a 1 1/2 mile section of curves on my commute that are absolutely break taking. It comes with a 500 - 1000 foot drop off on one side as a constant reminder of what if. So I recon I need to keep my suspension in good order. Even High performance.
  4. I'd hate to see it junked over such a trivial issue. Just Saying.
  5. *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. :-).
  6. 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.
  7. Also, I checked for voltage on the Crank sensor connector with switch on only, and got 1.5 v.
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. 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
