Question about 1991 Mazda Protege

1 Answer

Snowmobile cuts out one cylinder sometimes

I have a 198 artic cat wild cat 650 and last year we put in a new stater, rebuilt the whole top half , new coil . but now when riding i have one cylinder that keeps cutting out or just wont work for hours ! checked the wiring and no power to 1/2 side of coil-traced down to brain box connection and no power on that same black wire . tested the wires comming out of the stater and no power on black wire also . so im i right i assming that the stater went bad or should i continue to look at other wiring problems

    have you checked the stater with an ohmeter to see if there are any opens in the wiring? Does this engine have an ignitor? I would look into those areas.

I would suspect the igniter is defective or possibly the coil.

SOURCE: coil problem [ misfire DTC code]

rx8 have a history of coil packs going bad internally and grounding out. best way to check if theyre bad is to pull the packs and inspect the back side. if you have discolorationg on the back side your packs are bad or are going to be bad soon. inspect the plugs if they are fouled or burnt replace them along with the coil packs.its a good idea to replace the wires too. and do not use cheap aftermarket parts. this will only cause more problems in the future. use oem or performance parts.

SOURCE: Car just stopped running. Lost power suddenly.

Find an inductive pickup indicator for spark. Place on distributor cap to see if spark is at coil internal tower. If no spark at internal tower, look at ignition module or pickup coil. Ignition modules are prone to failure on 626's. But if you have spark at tower but not at the wire end, then your rotor is gone.

any wires not plugged into there respective places, any sensors the old engine had that this one don't, did you use the old distributor for your coil setup,I think it might be, luck

SOURCE: Check engine light keeps flashing.

One of the most common reasons for the RX-8's Check Engine light to turn on is the gas cap not being on tightly enough. Turn off the car, make sure the gas cap is tight, and check to see if the light is still on. You may need to drive the RX-8 for several miles after tightening the gas cap before the light turns off.

V.w.jetta gas eng. timing belt broke ? .shut engine off then wood not start . dealer says needs head work ? bent valves? without disasembling is it possible valves never came into contact with pistons ?


Hi, im afraid i can only give you bad news im afraid, if the engine was running even on tick over when the belt snapped then this would have caused the valves to smash into the pistons as the top half of engine would have stopped spinning leaving at least 2 valves in the out position but what causes the damage is the bottom half of the engine, as their is no weight on the cams to keep them turning they stop at once but the bottom half the crank has a big weight called the fly wheel now when the belt snapped the cams would have stopped dead but the crank would have carried on turning under its own weight and this is what causes the piston or pistons to hit the valves this then causes the valves to bend and all the valves will need replacing and the whole top end rebuilding with new seals and the new valves and valve seats will need grinding in.

how ever as its only usually the top half that gets damaged you could save yourself some time and money by calling a local breakers yard and see if they have a cylinder head lying around or even a whole engine as the cost of rebuilding you head and engine would cost more than it would to get a second hand cylinder head or if you didnt want to take any chances look into getting a whole engine.

look at the costs involved get a quote off you garage for the head rebuilt and new valves, tell them worse case if it needed complete head rebuild with all new valves and valve seats and all the seals get a price on the whole job then ask them how much it would cost if you supplied a working cylinder head or even whole engine then compare the prices and check with some breakers for cylinder head prices or engine and you should find that a second hand head will work out cheaper than having yours stripped and rebuilt with new parts.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

please rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Snowmobile carb. problem


I would say no. Carburetors can be tricky. They might need a good cleaning. Jets might be dirty. Check the fuel filter aswell.
