My car shut down wen im driving alot wen im at the lith 1996 mazda 626


have you checked if your air filter is blogged? since you removed the air flow meter and run ok means that the flow of the air is wrong read and the ECU is causing shut off the engine. Check also if the air flow meter itself is not working correctly.

u should check ur transmission fluid to see if it is dark (burnt) if so ur gonna b outa luck u most likely burnt it up. fluid will also have a strong burnt smell if it is black. trannys build up alot of heat wen trying to get unstuck in snow an ice. diminished air flow through radiator or trans cooler wen stuck also adds more heat to the unit,especially wen running it hard on ice. they get hot really fast

Have you checked the coolant level? If it is low fill it up and check for leaks. Low coolant can cause the car to overheat and shut down. IF the coolant level is ok you could have a bad thermostat/sensor. Its job is to shut the car off if it thinks it is over heating.

Battery is dead... get a volt meter, jump the car and with the car running on its own power check the voltage, anything less than 12v could point to an alternator but a new battery is a better place to start. put it to you this way if the car shuts off while driving, then its your alt, and if its fine wen drivin but wont start back up... its all battery

Engine shuts down after it has been running for awhile


You are on the right track. The ignition module on that car is affected by heat and can cause those very symptoms. That is where I would start.

Starting probles


have them check the ignition !!!

I had a 1990 Cutlass that did the same thing. It would turn over but not start when it got hot too or just cut out on me right on the road. I had it in the shop 2x's , thought it was fixed and got it out of the shop only to have it die later that night in the pitch dark. I had it towed back to the shop , they let it run , hoping it would cut out and it did. It was the ignition.. when it would overheat it would just shut off the car ... you couldn't start it peroid! Like you said 20 to 30 minutes later when it cooled down the car would start back up just fine ... then you'd drive it , it would heat back up, the car wouldn't start again for another 20 to 30 minutes !

hope that helps !

I think you are onto something. The thermostat in my opinion is too low causing the radiator to not cool enough before it is sent back into the motor. The block and the pistons are heating up causing it to run poorly. When was the last time you had your radiator flushed? ( I would have said that the headers are heating up the starter and this is causing the drain on the battery but you stated that once you get the car started it runs rough so i would have to rule the starter out.)
