1999 Mazda Protige shuts off while driving...

So I've had this car for a while but in the last year it keeps running worse and worse. Last summer it shut off on me while driving twice. Everything was fine until this summer. It started cutting off on me, but my temperature gauge stays mid as always. It literally has almost no acceleration. If I treat it like its over heating and sit for about 10minutes it restarts again. I brought it to a dealer. They cleaned it out and replaced a few gaskets, but my car still runs like ****. I've had people clean the fuel injection. Please help. No one know what is wrong with it.

Try changing the temp sensor... it might be behind your air hose... i had that same problem and i changed so much stuff and it ended up just being that sensor... it was the water temp sensor.

My car lags at about 20-30mph.

Rust in the radiator can mean the antifreeze broke down chemically and failed to stop rust. You would need a compression test, cylinder balance test, or pull and inspect the sparkplugs for contamination.

A bad head gasket is possible.

2003 Mazda 6 alternator keeps going out

Could I ask-- who is replacing the Alternators and why?
Did you take each one to the Auto Part Store and have it tested. If they were bad they would warrantee them and give you another for free.
Please don't tell me a dealer or professional shop put 5 Alternators on your vehicle and you accepted that !!

Tell me someone is still in the Diagnostic Mode and working to solve what happened,when the OEM ALT failed.

1995 honda odessey runs rough in drive and worse when ac is on .

One thing to change right off is the fuel filter. If its running rough it could be a few reasons but that definitly needs to be changed if it never has been. Depending on the transmission, I would have a service done on that.

1994 Buick Regal 3800 shut off periodically and now won't turn on

Sounds like you need an internal inspection of the engine. Valves, lifters, rods. pistons and rings etc. One of the worst things for cars is to let them sit for years.

My 1997 mazda 626 lx isnt charging right it wont start after its shut off its worse at night when I need the head lights

Sounds like your altinater is going out. Take your car to auto zone or one of those places. They can check it for you. Once your altinater goes out you wont be driving any where cause thats what keeps your battery charged and keeps your car running. Do that today!
