Mazda 323 auto gear box when engine up to running temp and been driving for about 15 mins it keeps wanting to change gear culminating in the hold light flashing...and lumpy when slowing down or speeding...


You need a full service of the auto transmission. Check the oil condition for burnt smell.
The oil may be burnt out and fails to lubricate when temperature goes up.
But most likely the gear gaskets or gear teeth are worn out.

I have a problem with my mazda lantis '94. it seems to drive fine when i drive at 50km/h but it slips out of gear all the time. would it be the transmission itself or the sensor?


Hi B,
Is your vehicle automatic or manual? If its automatic start the engine and leave it idling. With the engine running check the gearbox oil level on the transmission dip stick (the one with the red top) and make sure that the fluid level is correct. If not, top up through the same tube where the dip stick fits. Don't over fill. If the fault persists the problem will be inside the gear box with the clutch and drive bands having most likely been damaged. The best and most economical way of fixing the vehicle will be to look for and get a good second hand box and have it fitted.
If its manual there is a probability that the syncro mesh cone has worn out. To repair the box is not very economically viable, so I'd recommend the same as for the auto box. Get a good second hand box and fir that.

What is the "Hold" button for on the '93 Mazda Protege gear shift? (A light that says, "Hold" keeps blinking on and off on my dashboard...I'm assuming they are somehow related?)


hold is used to hold the gears longer in an auto like sports shift mode on newer cars, it should come on and then switch off at start up unless you have it engaged, if its continuingly blinking you have an issue with your gearbox as the auto box will run its own little self diagnostic on start up

There's most likely an issue with your transmission. Bring it to a shop to have it scanned for any codes

Does a mazda 323f 2001 model need gearbox oil change after some milage or is it a sealed unit?


Automatic and standard transmission needs fluid change every 24 months. On automatic transmissions, the gasket needs to be changed as well as the filter. On standard transmission there is a drain plug that can be loosened up, and refilled through the refill hole. Standard transmission use gear oil, while automatic transmission uses automatic transmission fluid.
