Question about 1997 Mazda 626
Smoke on startup clears after time or no smoke if i set off straight away splutters and pops around 3500 rpm on occasions most of the time runs fine
my car is a mazda 626 by the way 1998 2.0 lx
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.
