MAzda etude 323 Familia cuts out

My mazda has recently started to cut the engine out. All the gauges are where they are suppose to be. The car will not start for about 20-30 min and suddenly it starts and thereafter it will drive again for say 60-80 km and then it cuts out again. If I pour water on the crank and camshaft censor then it immediately starts but after 60-80 km it cuts out again. If I drive abit slower (120-140 km/p) then it takes longer before it cuts out.
Please assist??????

My daughter has a 1998 Mazda Familia and had a similar problem with her car. She took it an auto electrician where they checked the engine computer 'fault register' and the two items with fault codes were the Knock Sensor and the Cam Position Sensor. The Knock Sensor had 'melted internals' and they replaced it with a good second hand unit; they also replaced the worn spark plugs. The loss of engine power continued.

The crank shaft sensor is bad, it is heating up, and that is why it works after the water being poured on it, it is cooling it off.....

Why dose my mazda 323 gtx over boost buzzer come on and boost cut


Sounds like the waste gate is having trouble. It could be what's called a "boost leak". the waste gate is most likely internal on a factory system. On the turbo, You'll see a small, vacuum pod looking thing with a linkage connected. Check to make sure the vacuum line/hose is properly connected and run that line to make sure it's not cracked some where.
Otherwise, it could be any coupler, connection on the pipes that carry the air from the turbo to the throttle body. Even a "loose clamp" can cause boost leaks. With over boost, it's most likely the waste gate.
Good luck. Hope ya find it.

Mazda etude familia not producing spark to the engine while the distributor has a spark


The rotor under the distributor may be bad, pulled the cap and turn the engine over look at the rotor and make sure its turning. If it doesn't turn the distributor gear maybe sheared, timing belt or timing chain may have come off.

My car's timing belt break while driving. is my car engine busted?


I had my Ford Fiesta timing belt replaced according to the manual at 150000. 132000 in my case. The engine sounded a bit better. You're supposed to do it every 150000 to avoid engine damage. It's not absolutely certain your engine is busted, but one guy didn't know he had to put oil in every 10000 miles or so and complained about how his car had no balls. It took a looser like me to know that he hadn't changed the oil in it.
