    Nothing wrong with battery or alternator (alternator is 5 months old) All fuses are sound, fusable links on the left fender by the battery show no signs of damage and are solid. All lights and electronics are bright and show no decrease in intensity. Starter cranks nice and strong. All diagnostics in digital dash show all is fine except for the big red "Power Loss" message across my speedometer.

    This happend instantly. It did not happen over a period of time. There is NO power to either side of the coil with the ignition switch on. All belts are fine (timing belt observed being engaged and working through inspection port while cranking the engine)

It may be the alternator going. If u have a battery light comming on and other power sources weakening or cutting out and ur car dies then that usually means alternator. If u can get it to a parts store like checker or advanced they usually do a free alternator and battery test right there under the hood to let u know if one or both are bad. And if it's the alternator i believe those are pretty easy to do.

Hissing from exhaust and loss of power, especially when towing

You didn't give the year make and model, so I will give a generic answer.
A hissing noise from the exhaust is from a leak, and if you have a loss of power you could have a restriction in the exhaust such as the muffler or catalytic converter.

My 1994 Honda Civic DX hatchback's engine light turned on. Are there any troubleshooting tips i should try? besides the obvious loose gas cap.

well you could stop at an autozone or advance and one of their folks can attach an analyzer to it and give you the error codes. that help is worth exactly what you pay for it but it is better than simply looking at a warning light and trying to guess what it means. or looking at a warning light and asking someone else to guess what it means.

Loss of power with Check engine and VSC light on

There are several possible causes for the Check-Engine light coming on. First, it could be your oxygen sensors, PCV valve, dirty or clogged fuel filter or something as simple as a bad spark plug or loose spark plug wire. Also, contaminated fuel can also cause your loss of power and the subsequent light coming on.

Total shut down. Will not start. Blown computer.

Hi Candy!

I have never personally seen the scenario you have described, but it would take severe overcharging OR a very strong voltage spike to blow your computer, so they are on the right track...

As far as the money goes, you should only have had to pay for the first replacement if the work was done by a reputable shop... Did the first repair not come with some sort of warranty? I would strongly suggest that the Ford shop that gave up be asked to either cover the subsequent repairs OR refund what you spent on their NON-repair. You might need to be a little tenacious in your approach on this, and if you are denied at one level, ask to speak to their superiors. If you are persistent, calm, and reasonable, I'm sure you will receive some type of accomodation!

Sorry for your troubles, but hang tough... I'll send a copy of your complaint and my answer to New Bern Mazda for you, and also to Mazda USA. And please don't forget to rate my support: Your rating is my ONLY compensation for providing this assistance!
