Question about 2001 Mazda 626

2001 mazda 626 heater/temp gauge?

When the car is not in motion the temp gauge will go to normal. When it is in motion it will drop down below cold. When it is not in motion, it will blow out warm air if the heater or defrost is on, however when in motion it will only blow cold air. This morning was the first time I had seen the gauge go to hot. I warmed up my car and could not get any hot air even while sitting still. The gauge was normal until I started driving and then it went up to hot instead of how it has been going down to cold. Got any suggestions?

Heat goes in and out and the temp gauge goes up and down


Your temp sensor has nothing to do with your heater. The temp sensor needs coolant in order to work properly. So first check the coolant level because if it is low your heater will act the way you describe. Once the coolant gets low enough the heater will blow cold. Another possibility is the radiator cap. After the engine has warmed up it expands when it cools down it contracts. As it is contracting if the cap is weak air can be drawn into the system and cause air pockets to form and will cause the same problem

Mazda eunos leaking cold water, engine running hot and smells like burning rubber, temp gage is not showing a problem. Could it be the themosat?


Unless your gauge is faulty you engine probably is not overheated. Any vehicle engine at normal operating temperature is hot. I'm guessing but I bet your normal operating temperature is about 185 degrees. You say it is "leaking cold water". Were you using the air conditioner when this took place? If so that is normal condensation. As for the burning smell I would look at the exaust area to see if a piece of trash has caused it.

I have a 1996 Mazda 626, the check engine light came on and the car has been redlining the the temp gauge. I got the engine codes which are: p0117 and p0421. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?...


The cooling fan must run or the car must be running into the wind to keep from cooking the engine. Physically turn the fan to see if it turns freely (cold engine). The computer reads coolant temperature and trips the fan relay on when normal temperature is reached. You need to read the control voltage at the relay to determine the problem. Possible bad temp sensor.

It could be very well your water pump from the sounds of it. When was the last time you had that check or replaced? That would be my next guess to the problem...what's your mileage on the car?
