    Don't bother anymore. The belt on the waterpump/alternator broke causing all dash lights to go on and running off the battery caused loss of acceleration.

The Tail Lights Are Accessed From The Inside Of The Trunk There Will Either Be A Panel Immediately Behind Where The Light Is Or Carpet. Remove It And It Will Give You Access To The Rear Of The Bolts Just Grab Twist And Pull And The Light Will Come Out.

Dumb question, but, did you happen to the diagram on the underside of the hood, the strut tower towards sides of the motor or on the radiator support.

SOURCE: what is a fair price to replace a freeze plug on

I would say around $100.00.....but...
Some engines have freeze out plugs between the engine and transmission, so removing one would drive the cost up. If your is fairly easy to get at, the plug is cheap, you'll have a labor cost, and some anti-freeze.

SOURCE: P1131 manufacturer control fuel air metering. What

Hi Galant5Rov,

Firstly, congratulations to you on identifying the Trouble Code. This code relates to the Heated Oxygen Sensor (H02s)

The oxygen sensors supply the computer with a signal that indicates a rich or lean condition during engine operation (i.e. fuel/air metering).

This input information assists the computer in determining the proper air/fuel ratio. A low voltage signal from one or more sensors indicates too much oxygen in the exhaust (lean condition) and, conversely, a high voltage signal indicates too little oxygen in the exhaust (rich condition).

The oxygen sensors are threaded into the exhaust manifold and/or exhaust pipes on all vehicles.

A faulty oxygen sensor due to loose connections, bad grounds, high resistance in the circuit, or opens in the circuit can cause the following symptoms.
Related Symptoms

  • Surging at idle
  • Unstable idle
  • Running rough off idle
  • Hesitation
  • Stumble
  • Chuggle
  • Poor fuel economy
  • Spark knock
  • Stalling on acceleration
You must take EXTREME care when removing these sensors, as they can be difficult to remove (seize up). You may require a special tool to remove these without causing damage to the sensor.

My 2000 mazda 626 has lost all coolant but has not overheated

Loosing coolant may trick the water sensor(will not show temperature as is not merged in water.The apearence of loosing all coolant also may be tricky,the coolant will stay at a lower level,mistaken as no coolant,as long as more than 50% of the cilynder is merged in water it will allow to cool down as u dont force it.

Under steady acceleration, engine light goes on

Being a 95 it dosent have OBD2 so it may not store a trouble code in the computer.
From the symptoms it sounds like either, Air flow sensor, O2 sensor
The O2 will not usually cause stalling under acceleration.
