I'm afraid you have a bad or blown head gasket. does it have water on the oil stick too? may not be worth fixing if this has gone on too long you may want to take it to a garage. is it smoking out of the exhaust.

1998 mazda 626 thermo switch is not working what are the effects on the vehicle perfomance?

Possible hard to start when hot. poor economy--cooling fans not working--overheating-- detonation sounds--. The switch is part of the engine management system and if it is faulty then the cpu alters other sensors settings as it tries to keep the engine in tune..

The oil light sensor in my 1998 Mazda 626 is faulty. My mechanic says it is not worth spending the money to replace it. Can you tell me how to locate and disable it?

I don't know what your car is worth but the oil sensor runs about $9.00 and labor to install the new part is .6 of an hr to replace, you might want to find a new mechanic, also you need your oil light to work just like your temp. light or gauge those are two thing will kill an engine if you don't know what's going on. Good luck

speed limiter most likely its a device they install to stop you being able to speed they also make rev limiters, or your engine can only go that fast which i doubt cos 130 pretty low for an engine stop at

I have a mazda 626 , went to get my oil changed and noticed my synthetic 10w30 had been changed to synthetic 5w30 oil. I've never had to specify wich only that I wanted synthetic. My owners manual only...

Nope, it's not a problem. The numbers relate to the viscosity or slippery'ness (if thats a word) of the oil. The first number (5 or 10) is the viscosity of the oil when you first start the car. 5 is more slippery than 10. The second number (30) is the operating viscosity of the oil after your car has warmed up.
Simply put, in the winter your oil thickens when it cools down so you need smoother oil (5w30) when you start the car.
Winter = 5w30
Summer = 10w30
Hope this helps.

My 1991 mazda 626 runs great but will not stop burning oil and white smoke keeps coming out of the exuast pipe

Hi Arelis,

It sounds like two different problems. White smoke is indicative of water in the fuel. If it was oil burning the smoke would be blue.

The oil may be leaking out. Is there evidence of oil leakage on the road when you park? Check the engine for for oil leaks.

There are additives available at auto parts stores that deal with water in the fuel supply.

Please feel free to contact me. More details will be needed to get to the source of the oil problem
