Question about 1998 Mazda 626
I recently replaced the gear box oil seal of my 1998 Mazda 626. The first test drive after the replacement, the 'HOLD' light started blinking, the rpms went up to 3000 at speed of 80 km/h, and the car couldn't accelerate after that. The gear shifted up to only gear 2 and there was this strong smell of burning metal. We put in more ATF, but the 'HOLD' light still came on(blinking), the first gear shift is rough, rpms still high at low speed, the engine temperature shoots up but the coolant is full. Surprisingly, driving at speeds of 20-30 km/hr the 'HOLD' light doesn't come on, but once speed is increased the 'HOLD' light starts to flash and if I drive for a long time the car then decelerates by itself until it comes to a complete stop (even if I depress the gas pedal it doesn't move an inch!). I'm at a loss what could have gone wrong during the oil seal change because the car transmission was fine before, please help!!!
I have a rubbing/burning smell in my 2002 Mazda Millenia. I don't know if I should get rid of it or keep it. It has 100,000 miles and I drive 600miles a week to work.
