How to Check Transmission Fluid 2000 Mazda Protege

I inherited the car about 6 months ago. I somhow managed to run over something in the road the week after I got it and ever since the car has run a bit rough- (This could be unrelated but I thought I should mention). It sometimes makes a rattling on the driver side of the hood while idoling and is now you can feel it transitioning (its an automatic but now you can sometimes feel it shifting). I have not noticed anything leaking from the car but I would not rule it out. I do not know how to check the transmission fluid. Car also seems to go through coolant pretty quickly - ( I have had to fill it twice in the last 6 months) Oil levels are normal. Any thoughts?

Theresa,

Plug in your car and listen for a "sizzle" sound. If you hear this then your block heater works.... if not..... Call Canadian Tire!

2000 Mazda Protege transmission


This is really hard, because the is no drain plug.
Lose the transmission bolts and let out some oil, this is a messy job.
Good luck.

Ihave a 1997 mazda protege and after having it for a week I noticed the transmission will slip when going into 3rd gear (automatic transsion) the fuid is brown and I was worried about really messing things...


.One of the most common causes of a slipping transmission is a low automatic transmission fluid level, also a dirty and/or clogged automatic transmission filter can impede the normal flow of automatic transmission fluid throughout an automatic transmission and cause the transmission to slip. Adequate, unobstructed transmission fluid flow is necessary for the optimal operation and function of an automatic transmission, including the function of the transmission bands and gears, two transmission components that routinely cause transmission slippage.Another cause would be faulty torque converter action and maladjusted transmission band.

Where is transmission fluid locted in a 1990 mazda protege


I would ask Standard or automatic since the vehicle came with both as an option but it really doesn't matter. The fluid is located in the Transmission itself. If you have an automatic there is a dip stick located near the firewall under the hood you can use to check the fluid level with. If it is a Standard or manual transmission you will have to locate the check fill plug on the transmission under the vehicle to check the fluid level with the end of your finger.

When I first start my 1995 Mazda Protege, it will not go into gear unless you let the car warm up for at least 10 minutes or longer


If you have an automatic transmission, check the transmission fluid level. If the fluid level is low, the transmission will not engage.

If you have a manual transmission, check the clutch fluid level. Look for a leaky master cylinder or slave cylinder.

I have a 2001 mazda protege automatic transmission. As i drive it seems like someone just shifted the car in neutral, after a couple of seconds it kicks in gear and drives, but the same thing happens...


It is possible that your transmission fluid needs to be changed. Get that done, and it that does not solve your problem you may have transmission problems all together.
Hope this helps
