Question about Mazda Protege

Mazda protege clutch safety switch

I have had increasing challenge recently pushing the clutch far enough to start my 97 Mazda Protege. Now I can't seem to push the clutch far enough in to get it to start. Is it possible that the clutch safety switch is bad, loose, dislodged, whatever? Is it difficult to find this switch and remove it from the circuit? What does that look like?

SOURCE: obd2 code p0300 on mazda protege 2002

Just had one of these with a maxima, the code is multiple random misfire, when a misfire occurs, to start is do the basics, replace the plugs, check fuel pressure, clean throttle body, and coolant is topped up. also I have seen if the O2 sensor is not working correctly is can cause a misfire, you will need a scan tool to look at what the O2 sensor is doing, o rby back probing the sensor (don't damage the O2 sensor wires). If it wires replace them as well, if it has coils they usually dont give that code if one fails, it will pinpoint that a certain coil if one fals.

"HOW TO":
Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
4. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.

Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them

My mazda protege 1997 have a hard clutch to push,is there any solution to make more smooth to push the pedal?


If you have a cable operated clutch then replace the cable as it is binding up inside the case. If you have a hydraulic clutch system the replace the clutch slave cylinder and master cylinder as there is a problem with the rubbers in the units that have expanded from contaminants and are seizing up in the cylinders.

My 97 Mazda Protege will sometimes **** (as if the throttle is sticking) I will be driving and it will not accelerate, but stay at the same speed, then **** the car and catch up to the speed I'm...


It sounds like your neutral safety switch. Is it auto? If so, when it starts to slip try pulling back on the shifter while it is in drive, don't change gears, just pull back on the shifter. Sometimes it will move the switch just far enough to send the signal that it is in gear. You can try adjusting it by loosening the adjustment bolt and turning it. You have to remove the airbox to get to it, but it is really easy. If that still doesn't do it, then try to replace it. Like $20. You will need a large socket and breaker to get the main nut loose. But then it just slides off.
