I have a mazda protege 2001 1.6 dx manual and after i changed the motor and tranny mounts it started acting weird. the engine sort of jumps when accelerated and makes an awful noise also it shimmes when rolling down a hill but if you accelerate in neutral doesnt do the noise(almost like lifters sound) it also was smoking white but changed the oil and it stopped smoking it overheated a while ago but it was working fine till i chaged the mounts

2.4 litres have lifters, just like the 2.3 litre know as the quad 4 motor, throw some Lucas Oil Stabilizer into the motor, if it continues then this would be mechanical problem and needs to be taken to mechanic, sorry for wrong info you were given, and whatever you do, do not run anything other then 5w30, or 10w30

Just took my car to the shop for the same appearent reason me also thinking it may be lifters. My mechanic said it spounds like a worn wrist pin ...... bad news for you if this is the case .......recomendations rebuild the engine or buy a new or remanufactured one. if the wrist pin lets go then you could throw a rod. If you must drive the car please be gentle

It's possibly for the timing to be off even if you line up the marks. If it have variable timing the the marks only are a reference. You need special tools to properly set up timing

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2001 Mazda Protege 2.0 LX?


A 2001 Mazda Protege (actually, all models from 1999-2003 including the DX, LX, ES, Mazdaspeed, and Protege 5) does not have an inline fuel filter. The only fuel filter it has is a "strainer" or a "screen", which looks like a nylon mesh "sock". This strainer is connected to the fuel pump, located in the gas tank. Although this fuel strainer does not require periodic replacement, it is recommended that it be changed if you are replacing the fuel pump.

2001 mazda protege dx 5 spd dies, brakes are seized up?


It seems that one of the pulleys is bent, or you are using the wrong timing belt. I would suggest changing them. That would probably explain why the timing belt keeps breaking. The braking problem can be related, or you simply have a leak somewhere in the system and should try bleeding the brakes after thorough inspection.

How is the idle? Is it turned up and idles too much when brakes are applied? How are the motor and tranny mounts? Are they good, solid, and sturdy?
