    replaced the ECT and cap and rotor. the check engine light only came on after the engine had been cranked for a few seconds. Also replaced the wires and spark plugs. The car now runs fine. Thanks for your help.

It could be a faulty Engine Coolant Temperature sensor. It sounds like when it is cold, your computer is interpreting your signal from the ECT (or lack therof) as being at a certain temperature and not providing the right amount of fuel in order to start the engine when it is cold. Does the check engine light blink or flash at all?

1994 Mazda Protege wouldn't start, battery seemed dead replaced battery with a new one and still no power


Does anything work? Lights, radio? Do the warning lights and gauges turn on when key is turned to on? That would verify power is getting to the ignition switch and is being sent out.
Pretty limited in what you can check without a voltmeter or test light. If you have power to the ignition switch, need to know if power is getting to the starter solenoid on the starter motor when the key is held in cranking position. If power there, likely a new starter is called for-have yours tested.

Manuel transmission wont go into gear.


First, is your clutch working? Check this by turning the engine off then put the car in first gear. Firmly apply the parking brake and fully depress the clutch pedal and hold it depressed as you crank the engine. If the engine starts and the car and revs normally then check the oil level in the trans. If the car tries to jump forward then adjust the clutch.

Try changing the fuel filter. Many times fuel problems can be mistaken for transmission problems because the motor is starving for gas.

Instructions on how to change the rear brakes on a 2002 mazda protege?


Give me a call.
1) I have owned a Mazda protege 5 for the last 4 years
2) I have done 2 complete brake jobs on it
3) I am a braking systems engineer.
4) I know what I am doing. I have done 100's of brake jobs on lots of different vehicles.

Biggest issue with the protege is getting the piston back in.
Look at the back of the caliper.
There is a thin head bolt on the back.
You need to take this off the caliper and reach inside with an allen head (I think it's 5mm). Then turn the set screw in there out a few turns. Then you can push the piston back in with a regular piston push back tool. Dont worry if the set screw comes out. Just thread it back in. But you HAVE to at least start it back in. It is part of the auto-adjust mechanism. After you do your brakes you may notice that your parking brake has A LOT of play. After you work it a few times it will tighten back up just fine.

Clean averything well and grease the slide pins with a good quality waterproof grease. There is special grease for slide pins.

What type transmission does a 1994 mazada protege auto . F3A?


I'm seeing a lot of 1994 Mazda Protege problems so if you do replace it I would recommend a new trans and not a rebuilt or junk yard trans.
Most car repair shops use Jasper Transmissions most likely because they build them better than the original!

Voltage intermittent, engine missing at all speeds, affect auto trans. shifting, kills hot or cold


The charging system, pedal, and sensors have been checked. The trans. problem and missing problems were the original problems and when my mechanic finally sent me to Chev. none of the problems " choose to show themselves." I should know on Mon. if my mechanic has solved the problems with the greater number of symptoms. Keep me in your files. More later-  Bill
