If it's the org. engine it will has over 150,000 miles on it.
It's normal to has the valve seal/oil seal on the head to leak oil into the cyclinder.

The smoke you see is the motor oil drop from the seals. It land on the top of the cyclinders and it create black smoke at start up.

The inexpensive fix is to start using high mileage oil with seal conditioner.
This will help soften the rubber seals and help reduce internal oil leak.

The correct fix is to wait until it's time for a head gasket replacement and let the professional service the head.

Complete head service is the only method to stop this internal oil drip problem.

SOURCE: transmission filter

That car was available with 2 different transmissions.1 is the CD4E.That trans,the filter is only accessable if rebuilding the trans.You literally have to tear down the trans to get to the filter,so just drain and refill that one on a service.The other trans it could have is the GF4AEL,and that one has two pans.The filter is located in the bottom pan.Good luck.

Cant get rotor off 2000 mazda 626


Hammer time! all the brake rotors I've ever seen just slide on over the wheel lug studs. Your rotor could be seized on there due to rust or excessive heat. tap your way around the back side of the brake rotor and if you can put some heat to the wheel stud areas and it should pop loose. Hope this helps

Mazda 626 the car is smooking what can i do?


It is time you had the car checked up for the scheduled service maintenance. Please see if the oil/oil filter is changed, the fuel settings are correct, the valve settings and the timing is in order.
If this is blue smoke then the oil rings can be faulty and it is time for an engine overhauling... if oil is used or oil level drops too much.
But if this is black smoke check the fuel settings, check the valve settings
