Why is the check engine light is flashing?


the check engine light is on and flashing to let you know that either the engine or transmission needs urgent attention. Check coolant level, oil levels, overheating and take it to an accredited service centre before the problems become real money

1998 Mazda 323 Protege - constantly overheating, even after fairly short runs (10 minutes). Coolant overflow bottle turns from green to dark grey each trip and almost "explodes".


Possible cause ;
1. Water pump
2. Thermostat
3. Bad head gasket.
4. Low coolant level.
Try to replace thermostat first , this way you illuminate thermostat and coolant level , you'll have to ad coolant after replacement and purge system.

Mazda protege 99 o/d light starts blinking and transmision goes to 4th gear. What causes the o/d to start blinking


This is just a guess, but my Mazda o/d light was blinking and it was the transmission overheating. It didn't hurt mine. Coolant was getting low in the radiator. But the engine was not overheating. It was highway driving.

When I first start my 1995 Mazda Protege, it will not go into gear unless you let the car warm up for at least 10 minutes or longer


If you have an automatic transmission, check the transmission fluid level. If the fluid level is low, the transmission will not engage.

If you have a manual transmission, check the clutch fluid level. Look for a leaky master cylinder or slave cylinder.

2001 mazda protege battery overheating - bad smell....., not catalytic converter . 1.6l.


You need to get the alternator output checked. If you can smell something like rotten eggs then what you are smelling is hydrogen gas which is explosive !! Batteries get hot and smell because the alternator is charging at too high a level. Check the output with a multimeter across the battery with the engine running. If it reads higher then 14.4 volts, its the alternator and you need to fix it as overcharging of your battery will cause total failure (if it has not already screwed your battery)..

Altanator keeps dieing.


A fresh charged battery does not mean it is a good battery.The battery is working the alternator to death,replace it,it has a bad cell,or the amps are to low,and has a short in it.The alternator senses the battery is in bad need off charge,and puts all out until the alternator has nothing left,This is the most likely cause of this problem.Also be sure the battery cable ends are shiny clean when replacing the battery.
