SOURCE: mazda bongo 2.5 turbo diesel 1996. over heating

My Bongo's been naughty like yours called the dealers and they said they had the same problem with a different persons Bongo.
They found in the end it was the water pump it had a very small hole and was drawing air in causing airlocks and the bongo overheated. If you open the expansion tank and theres more than normal back pressure.Id look into changing the water pump.

Mazda Bongo Altenetor Is Not Charging.What May Be The Fault?

-Most Alternator not charge, because the brushes are won out.
But here is the basic to determine what is wrong before replace any part.

-Turn on the car let it run to normal idle then use voltmeter to check
power at battery terminal. If it's below 13 volt. The alternator need to be replace. But if it show 13.5 to 14 volt. The alternator is good. The battery is bad. It doesn't hole any charge. Need new battery.
Keep in mine. each battery is last ONLY 5 Years.

Good Luck

Mazda car battery pilot ight in front panel was found "On" while driving from home. After completing the journey and returning home, battery was found dead, ie could not start the engine. Why and...

The light you describe is not a pilot light, this is an indicator that the battery is not being charged (It comes on when you first turn on the ignition, before you start the engine because at that stage, without the engine running, the battery is not being charged. Its being on when the engine running is a warning that you have a fault).

Hence, the reason the battery was flat after the journey is because you used the power in the battery to run the engine, illuminate lights and indicators etc.

Causes for the syetem not to charge the battery are usually 1 of 3 things.

The fan belt that drives the altenator has come off. This belt usually drives a fan or power steering or both, so if broken, you would probably have other problems. - Check that the belt is on and not slipping

There may be a fault in the wiring, so your altenator is not charging. Check the plug on the back of the altenator and check around the general vicinity for damaged or faulty wiring

Most likely cause is that the altenator has failed. It may be repairable or require replacement depending on the fault.

Please add a comment to this thread if you need further guidance.

I have a 2001 mazda protege (1.6) and I believe the catalytic converter is clogged. It looses power going uphill. There are no manuals published for this year(2001), so I'm only guessing that the catalytic...

Don't be presumptuous, replace the EGR valve and put your cat back together. Losing power on am incline/hill means but one thing, the Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve is bad.

I need to replace my mazda mpv catalytic

Ok the fastest way to solve weather it is the cats in the exhaust system is to take it too a exhaust specialist and ask them to do a exhaust pressure test. They should have all the pressure drop data there and can tell you if there is to much restriction in the exhaust, if there is to much chances are they will be the cats, usually the front one. Yep your dad is correct with his theory, but excessive overfuelling will also cause the cats to build up excess heat and start to melt, or fall apart. So get a good service when your able too, plugs/filters and oils. Yep your firing order is correct.

Service engine light comes on code is p0420

That code means that the catalytic converter is operating below it's threshold of efficiency. It could be that the cat is clogged which would necessitate getting a new one (the car would run terribly with almost no power) but more often than not the post-cat oxygen sensor is failing. That's the one between the cat and the muffler. Its only purpose is to serve as a comparator against the readings from the primary (pre-cat) sensors, to determine whether the car is working correctly. I'd change that, clear the code, and start driving to see if it comes back.
