2002 Mazda Protege

This car has sat for about 6 months now, just got it legal again, I was riding down the road at approx 50mph, and suddenly all the lights came on, the car cut off, and wouldn't start again, I checked with the dealership, they said to check the timing belt, it was good, the crankshaft is still turning, so that isin't the problem, this car has just over 65k miles on it, any suggestions

Just because the crank shaft is turning, it doesn't necessarily mean that the timing belt is O.K. as it could have jumped a tooth or it could be stretched.
Try to check it by bringing your # 1 cylinder to top dead center and checking to see where your timing marks are in perspective towhere they are suppose to be. There should be a sticker under yourhood somewhere that tells you what your timing should be. Then go from there.

Where is the EGR valve on a mazda protege 5


I own a 2002 Mazda Protege5 with the FS2.0 Motor. The EGR Valve is located below the throttle-body. You must take off the Intake tube to get a good view of it. To replace it I think you might have to take off the throttle-body, but I'm not sure about that...(yet)


NOTE: Mazda put out a technical note stating that "if your car has sat for a long time, the egr valve could be damaged by moisture (rain) and will need to be replaced". My 2002 Protege sat for 3 weeks and the rain caused this exact issue and had to be replaced. How did I know? The engine light came on (after never coming on) and the car had an extremely rough idle. Total cost was ~$400 (ouch).

3rd dead battery in 6 months


It's more likely a short circuit somewhere or a sticky door switch. Battery cables can be corroded but not normally bad in that they don't transfer current. Assuming the connections are tight and clean, the problem is probably elsewhere.
