Question about 1997 Mazda 626

1 Answer

Sudden loss of engine power

I have a 1993 Mazda 626 and was driving home yesterday. After about a half kilometer the engine lost power suddenly, the gauges all went to 0 and I had to pull over. The stereo was still going and the lights were still on. I started it up no problem and it did the same thing again after about 1/2 kilometer.

Do you have any suggestions on what this could be? It was very scary as I ended up stalling in a busy intersection the second time.

    Thanks for your answer. I have it in the repair shop to be looked at. God, I should buy a scooter with a side car for my child. It would be a lot cheaper :)



    Thanks again!

Car just stopped running. Lost power suddenly.


Find an inductive pickup indicator for spark. Place on distributor cap to see if spark is at coil internal tower. If no spark at internal tower, look at ignition module or pickup coil. Ignition modules are prone to failure on 626's. But if you have spark at tower but not at the wire end, then your rotor is gone.

Apparently the timing belt came off and caused considerable engine damage. On checking problems on internet this appears to be a not uncommon problem with this model.
