Sounds like you have lost the transmission. There are bands that clamp down to lock the transmission into the gear you want. They are controlled by a hydrolic unit located in the trans. The first thing I would do is have a shop pull the trans oil pan and see if it is full of chips of metal. If so you definately have a problem. At the same time they can look at the bands and see if one of them is broken. another cause would be that metal has gotten into the hydrolic valve body and frozen the drive band portion so it will not function. You may also get lucky and have it be an internal adjustment of the drive band. Good Luck, RAC

its not to bad to do it yourself. you will have to jack up that car pretty high and us some good flexible ratchets to get the bolts off. you can follow the wires from the battery cables and it will connect to the starter. make sure you disconnect the battery first. you will see it to your left from the center of the engine when you are laying underneath your car. kinda looks like a cylinder attached to the engine. if you cant do it have a pro mess with it unless you have time on your hands. make sure to check the wire connectors to the starter or else it will make poor contact and drain your battery as well. they start to rot after being over 10 yrs old but you cant tell unless you peel off the tape or rubber molding on the copper wires.

A common problem with Mazdas, it's a sign that the transmission is worn out. There is a seal on a hydraulic system that activates the clutch for Drive. When this seal wears out, it leaks and it takes longer for the clutch to engage. The only way to repair it is to take the transmission apart. You may be told to try flushing the the transmission, chances are this won't work. The seal needs to be replaced.
