Question about 1997 Mazda 626
Every one thinks this not starting and overheating problem is due to a thermostat, waterpump, alternator or radiator but it's not I encountered the same proble went to many service station but no one could figure it out until on day I decided to change the Distrubitor for my self not the cap but the distrubtor. It's not cheap it will run u between 300 and 500 for the part but I'm 85 pct sure it will fix your problems.

Sounds to me that your thermostat is sticking shut. When theengine warms up the anti-freeze isn't circulating, it's evaporating. Not sure on the cost, a new thermostat is around $25 and probably a couple of hours labor should be enough to get it done. It's just a matter of removing a radiator hose from the engine and a base for the hose. Pop out the old thermostat put in the new and replace the hose and base. They wi;ll probably have to move some stuff out of the way to get at it, but I'd want some detail if they quote more than a couple of hours. Hope this helps.
