I have a 99 Mazda 626 that just quits running when you are driving down the road. Today it quit and I waited about 20 minutes and it started right up. Anyone know what could be causing this?

Try replacing the ignition switch underneath the steering collar. Pop of the top then the bottom you need a screw driver or ratchet cant remember. Its very easy to replace. I suggest buying a repair manual to see what it looks like. Very small part smaller then your hand. The part cost 100 or less with life time warranty. DO NOT BUY IT FROM THE MAZDA DEALER. They warranty their part for only 9 months? Or 30k miles.

If it starts to putter or not stay on and turn off like you describe it maybe the switch. When you install it first it may shudder or have a high rpm. I think it does this because the main computer is trying to adjust. You may have to turn it off 5 or six times or drive around the block a few times to get it to adjust. I have replaced mine twice already since I have hit 234,000k miles on it. It does burn out and my car at times will not start or turn and try to turn of while I’m driving and stop at a light with low rpms.

99 mazda 626 lx -i have a slow oil leak. only leaks when i drive.


It sounds like it's actually burning the oil, rather than leaking it then, I'm assuming that your usage is a lot more than the drop you mention. The entire car has 234k on it? (or did you mean just the trans?) With that many miles I wouldnt be surprised if your valves are letting a little oil slip into the combustion chamber. If the usage is bad enough, it may be time for a valve job, or even a rebuild.

I have a mazda 626 it will turn over but it won't


If the timing belt or chain is broken, or if there is no oil pressure, the car will not start to protect the engine from damage. Check these two items.

Your "crank angle sensor" may be getting to the end of its life: the fault you have described is a common symptom of this failure. The sensor is easy to replace but not cheap to purchase.
