SOURCE: 2003 Mazda Protege5. Cooling fan on radiator is

First, check the relay for the cooling fans. Not sure about Mazdas but Fords have two coolant temperature sensors. One for the gauge or light on the dash and one for the fan relay. Check and make sure the sensor hasn't went bad or come unplugged. If these don't fix it the fan itself may be bad.

SOURCE: check engine light on 2003 mazda protege5

The vehicle computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be looked at. To properly diagnose what is wrong, you need to take your car to a mechanic or a dealer. The technician at the dealership or a garage will then hook up the scanner to the car computer and retrieve the stored trouble code(s). Then he (she) will look it up in the service manual provided by a car manufacturer. The service manual contains the list of possible codes (about few hundreds) and describes what each code means and what needs to be tested. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, what engine parameter is out of normal range. The technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint a defective part.

I have a 2002 Mazda Protege5 that now has a loud, continuous metallic 'rattle' coming from the top, front of the engine. How can I locate the problem and how can I fix it?


code p0660 refers to intake manifold tuning valve , bank 1 --circuit open===causes --wiring---intake tuning valve

code p0302 refers to cylinder 2 --misfire detected ===causes --engine mechanical fault--wiring ignition /fuel system---injector---ECT/MAF sensor---ECM
form you description I suggest that you have a compression test done and check for a loose valve seat insert for no 2 cylinder
That would account for the rattle and loss of power and misfire for that cylinder

I have a 2003 Mazda Protege5. When I turn my lights on the transmission shifts to 3rd gear, D and R both light up, and my reverse lights come on. Any Ideas of where to start?


Yikes! Sounds like an electrical short from the lighting system to the transmission controls. I would see a mechanic about it. Shorts can be non-trivial to trace out and repair. Sorry I can't suggest something easy and less expensive.

Hyundai Balance Shaft Bearing making noise?


Possible. It's hard to give you an accurate cause, since I'm not able
to hear the sound. Most of the time, when you hear a slight wrapping
sound, it's a rod bearing,or crank bearing. When the rod bearing goes,
you'll know it,since it will knock like an SOB.

2003 Mazda Protege5. Cooling fan on radiator is not running. This is the main fan on the left side of the radiator.


First, check the relay for the cooling fans. Not sure about Mazdas but Fords have two coolant temperature sensors. One for the gauge or light on the dash and one for the fan relay. Check and make sure the sensor hasn't went bad or come unplugged. If these don't fix it the fan itself may be bad.

2003 Protege5 front suspension knocking noise


Upper strut mounts aren't prone to rattling or knocking as they are usually under load all the time. Very few cars do not have a swivel bearing - a few old Fords are all I can think of. Most current models have the swivel bearing integrated into the strut mount, the main job of which is to insulate road noise from the body. Some cars use a swivel bearing fitted between the strut and lower spring cup.

Worn shock absorber internal valves can be very noisy over small bumps and road undulations and wear in steering rack components can make similar noises especially the rack slipper bearing, the rack end support bearing and the rack end joints.

Many track control arm ball joints have an internal spring to compensate for small amounts of wear. When such a joint has worn significantly it is not always possible to detect free play with hand pressure but they are liable to make noise on the road.

Struts that are housings fitted with shock absorber cartridges retained by a single large nut - the nut can sometimes be loose by a small amount causing the cartridge to knock inside the casing.

The strut piston rod and bush is subject to a great deal of force from the reaction of acceleration and braking and considerable wear can take place between the rod and it's bush. The trouble is any free play cannot be detected when the vehicle is jacked and the wheels clear of the ground and similarly cannot be detected with normal force when the vehicle weight is on the ground. I find lifting the car until the suspension is only compressed an inch or two gives the best chance of detecting wear though considerable strength and energy is still needed.
