Question about 1989 Mazda MX-6
Car idles at two speeds when turned on and when warmed up.
Car also dies (no power, no lights) but when key is inserted, lights come on, key is turned, car does not turn over, just clicks and everything shuts off. This problem was solved when the battery was shaken and the cables messed with.
Well, for the battery, sounds like loose cables or corosion on terminals. As for the two idleing speeds, is it carb or fuel injected? If it's carb, it's normal. If fuel injected, not sure off hand.

Engine stalls or RPM
fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
