Question about 1994 Mazda Protege

1 Answer

I'm working on a 1994 Mazda Protege DX 1.8 sohc. The car recently died while running and will not start again. It has plenty of fuel pressure. There is no spark out of any of the 4 plugs. There is power to the coil. I replaced the coil and still nothing. I'm learning more about this car than I care to know at this point. I'm told it has an "ignitor." Is this before the coil or part of the distributor?

I had the same problem. first I changed the computer. No avail. comp. was fine. Second, got a distributor from junk yard. Works great 10k mile later. Try the distributor and ignition coil. the New oem parts are pricey. good luck.

2001 mazda protege dx 5 spd dies, brakes are seized up?

It seems that one of the pulleys is bent, or you are using the wrong timing belt. I would suggest changing them. That would probably explain why the timing belt keeps breaking. The braking problem can be related, or you simply have a leak somewhere in the system and should try bleeding the brakes after thorough inspection.

How do I change the valve cover gasket?

I just changed mine two days ago.I have a 1994 Protege DX and the VIN number says it's a DOHC. It does have two overhead cams BUT the value gasket is for the SOHC. My gasket has 6 holes.... just double check.

Simply loosen the six 10mm bolts and don't forget the 10mm bolt left side holding the timing belt cover in place. Disconnect the two rubber hoses and each end of the valve cover. I used a small screw driver to try out the old gasket. reverse process.

Engine quits running after starting.

Check the fuel pump pressure while it is running and begins to die, the fuel pump has 2 circuits, one supplies power while you start the engine, the other after the engine is running, you may have an issue with the run circuit of the fuel pump.
