Question about 2003 Mazda Protege
I have a 2003 DX protege with 55K miles. I never before had experienced any problems with my engine until some parts got changed this past weekend. I had this changed:
this was a first for those 3 parts. after changing that, the mech also washed the engine (i had this done one time before, 2 years ago without any issues). this took place 2 weeks ago. since then, i'm experiencing the engine kinda stuttering at neutral revolutions. the mechanic turned the revs up at idle to compensate but i want to get rid of the problem at the root cause. the engine problem is more evident if one take a look/hear at the exhaust pipe.
i changed the spark plug cables with no effect.
i would appreciate any insight. i'm not technical so pardon if I'm missing the correct terms.
Thanks for update. That timing belt issue, was the first thing that came to mind, well let's hope they find problem. I'd make a point of showing the original mechanic the repair order/bill after to see what his response is, if it is the belt installed wrong. Keep me posted.
