Question about Mazda Protege

1 Answer

2002 Mazda Premacy It does not start unless you pump the accelerator while you turn the key. It vibrates when stationary or moving slowly. You think it will stall but it doesn't. But it is not working at full power. Sometimes going on a straight flat road or even downhill it does 'bunny hops' as though the engine has hiccups

When you say it has an erratic idle, I initially thought the Idle controller. On a forum post I found, it seems that it could be your PCV valve, or as simple as needing your fuel injectors cleaned with a bottle of fuel injector cleaner! I have posted the forum, and where you can buy a bottle of this cleaner. You can also buy this fluid at your local autozone, or pepboys. Just dump it in your gas tank. They also mention to never run this car dry.

2002 2w 4 cy stick shift. My car is running but there is a rattling or drowneding sound. Not sure if it's timing, water pump or center bearing. How do I know


Timing will not make a noise unless you are under acceleration or load ---Water pump will make a dead rattling sound ( listen to the end of a screw driver on the water pump housing . It will have a deep rumble if faulty)--centre bearing will be noisy when travelling and will produce a vibration at speed . More information as to when the noise is happening and wether the car is stationary or travelling would be a big help.

My 2002 mazda premacy sticks in gear when the transmision is cold,what can i do to fix this


I would consider a transmission oil change to freshen up the oil . The hard braking may be that there is a rust build up on the rotors and that makes the pads grab for a few applications. May be a way to fix the gear problem is to start it and let it idle for say 10 minutes to allow everything to get some heat into it instead of starting and driving immediately

Check first the fuel filter for debris/dirt that may have clogged it. See if fuel passes through the filter. Check also the intake of the fuel filter if it gets fuel during starts. You may also have a bad fuel pump. Check first the fuses and the pump relay.
