Question about 1988 Mazda 626 Turbo

Mazda 626 2.2L Turbo 1989 - Alternator - Fuel Pump

Went for a drive from Brisbane to Gold Coast then to Sunshine Coast. Car died going up a hill - car totally switched off. Everything went dead! Called a RACQ said it was the alternator - can not find out how to get it out!!! I have looked for an online workshop manual. Everything thing is in the way - turbo inter cooler, engine, several wires, air hoses, fuel hoses etc. Is there a quicker way of taking out the alternator without removing several vital pieces of automotive equipment? Also a manual to remove and reinstall the fuel pump would also be appreciated

Hi am just up the road on the SSC, it is easier to remove the alternator from underneath the vehicle & if you look under the carpet under the rear seat there is a plate which gives you access to the fuel pump cover in the tank. The pump can be accessed from there. If you want the workshop Manuals I have just uploaded them.
You can download the GD 626 Workshop manual & the Turbo supplement by going to the 626.net site.
Cheers

95 Eagle Talon stalls out after driving for a while. Has new ignition coil, plugs and wires, computer and fuel pump but I've been told it has something to do with the fuel line, any help?


I have the same year and stalls out occasionally in the beginning and now I can barely drive a quarter mile. All of the parts you listed I've tested and appear ok but what I'm thinking is not fuel because it would act crazy gasping for fuel but the camshaft and crankshaft sensors. If either of these are failing then the engine stops firing and dies. Also could be the alternator or battery. If not enough charge then the car could die. Mine dies like I turned the key off (and don't think it's ignition switch) and gauges all just drop to zero still sounds like engine is sort of on until I finally coast close to stopping and then dies and oil light comes on.

check if you have a spark when engine dies. if not, check the rpm sensor or ignition coil. both have the simptoms like you describe.

Warning lights coming on with nothing happening


loosen the positive battery cable.... start the car.... remove the battery cable.... if it keeps running... it's your battery failing... if it dies... it's your alternator. wear safety googles when you perform this test and it should be done outside where it is well ventilated.

1991 Mazda MX-6 starts and it dies within 30 seconds or less.


Check to see fi your fuel pump is functioning, also change the fuel filter. I had this same problem on a 1984 626. While i waited for the car to restart fuel would seep into the line to allow for the enging to startbe that was it.

Volvo slows down going up steep hills when air temp >95 Fahrenheit


THOSE VEHICLES HAVE A SECONDARY FUEL PUMP THAT FEEDS FUEL TO MAIN PUMP UNDER VEHICLE. THE SECONDARY PUMP IS INSIDE THE FUEL TANK. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE 2NDARY PUMP IS STARTING TO SEIZE ON YOU. CAUSING POOR FUEL PRESURE AND MAKING VEHICLE TO LOOSE POWER
