    I have 1997 Mazda 626ES (six cylinder), car runs fine except after about 1km going uphill car starts to miss, lacking power, pumping gas petal helps a little, then when car is going downhill and the engine reached running temperature, runs well. Fuel pump problem, perhaps? Welcome any ideas. Thanks Mel

    Well, Im having pretty much the same problem with my wifes mazda 626. The first thing I did was to find out what code the check engine light was giving. It said that the number 1 spark plug was mis-firing. I pulled the plug and there was oil on the plug keeping it from sparking due to a faulty valve cover gasket. I changed it and no more oil on the plug but, I think theres a cracked valve stem that's making the car burn oil like crazy. Hope that helps.

I had the same problem and found that the air admission tube was badly cracked.

Since this let air enter the engine downstream of the mass airflow sensor it is not measured so the engine ECU don't send the proper amount of fuel to provide the right air/fuel mixture. At higher RPM, the vacuum in the tube is enough to close the crack and hide the problem.

I temporarly repaired it with duct tape until I get the part.

I would try a flush. If its set up like my 96, and it likely is, changing the trasmission gasket and filter will be difficult. Mine has a medal plug on the bottom and takes an allen wrench, and possibly a breaker bar. If you take out this plug, drain, flush then refill via the dipstick tube and a funnel, it may help. You may need to do this a couple of times due to fluid still in the torque converter, pan, etc.
Lucas is good stuff, I would add it again when I was done. The tranny fluid should be pink, mine looked like used oil black before I flushed it.
Also, when adding the new fluid, shift slowly up and down through all of the gears to lube well and check your fluid levels after 100 miles or so, as sometimes a bubble will form and make it look full....then not after it pops.

Sounds like you have lost the transmission. There are bands that clamp down to lock the transmission into the gear you want. They are controlled by a hydrolic unit located in the trans. The first thing I would do is have a shop pull the trans oil pan and see if it is full of chips of metal. If so you definately have a problem. At the same time they can look at the bands and see if one of them is broken. another cause would be that metal has gotten into the hydrolic valve body and frozen the drive band portion so it will not function. You may also get lucky and have it be an internal adjustment of the drive band. Good Luck, RAC

SOURCE: 2000 mazda 626 o/d off light blinking/flashing.

the light is flashing to alert u to the fact that a fault has occured in the transmission, the common cause is slipping, you may not even feel this, but to confirm where the problem is the system must be tested for fault codes.
