Question about 2001 Mazda 626
On Saturday my father changed the headlights, windshield wipers,cleaned the battery acid off and added 3 quarts of oil. 2 quick trips were made to the store and there were no problems. Later that night I was driving on the freeway and noticed smoke from the rear (unable to tell the color as it was dark). I got off the freeway and about 30 seconds later the car cutoff. The battery, check engine and oil lights were on. It seemed to have power but would not turn over (just a clicking noise). Please help. I'm a woman, ready to have it towed to the dealer and am afraid of getting taken.
If it si just clicking it is either your starter or your voltage regulator, make sure the battery is good too....
My advice is to take it in and tell them you want the battery checked and the starter replaced if the battery is good, it is the first thing to check. Tell them the way i did to make it sound as if you know what your talking aobut and they will be afraid to take you, in fear you really do know what your talking about.
