SOURCE: My 99 Silverado 1500 won't shift into overdrive

There is an overdrive fuse in the fuse compartment on the drivers side door panel, check and see if its blown, if it is there was some problems with the overdrive shift wire touches the bottom of the tranny pan, and can cause the fuse to blow out.

SOURCE: 2003 Mazda Protege car is shaking When Drive and Engine light stay On

I bet it also feels like it wants to stall as well. I think my car was at around 65k and it did the same. It is the spark plugs and the coil. My mistake was going to the dealership where they charge you too much. Any experienced mechanic can do it. Changing the coil is also in the manual.

SOURCE: 2001 mazda protege keeps stalling

SOURCE: For 2003 Mazda Protege ES model 2.0L 4cyl engine;

Check the air inlet boot going from the air filter to the intake for rips or holes. If rips exist, this would allow air to bypass the filter and mass air flow sensor and will lead to a check engine light appearing. The code would read "too lean, bank 1." If this problem is allowed to continue for long periods of time, the EGR ports will have to be cleaned out and maybe even the intake.

Overdrive light is blinking an it wont run in drive


If you mean engine wont stay running in drive might be looking at torque converter, if you mean wont go into over drive even with your over drive switch on your over drive clutches and or shift solenoids are bad trans needs rebuilt or replaced

I have 2001 mazda protege with a 1.6 and its been sitting for 3years and when i went to drive it i noticed the O/D light and the engine light was on so i changed the transmission fluid. Then when i went...


well the o/d light should just mean that your overdrive button is pressed on the shifter, so try taking off and put gas and maybe fuel injector cleaner and then see what happens

What is the o/d button on top of automatic gear stick for please


Over Drive..... Generally speaking, overdrive (OD) is the highest gear in the transmission. Overdrive allows the engine to operate at a lower rpm for a given road speed. This allows the vehicle to achieve better fuel efficiency, and often quieter operation on the highway. When it is switched on, an automatic transmission can shift into overdrive mode after a certain speed is reached (usually 70+ km/h [43+ mph] depending on the load). When it is off, the automatic transmission shifting is limited to the lower gears. For an automatic transmission, it is almost always best to select overdrive and allow the transmission to control engagement of the overdrive. (It may be necessary to switch it off if the vehicle is being operated in a mountainous area or when towing a trailer.) With a manual transmission, overdrive should usually be selected when the average speed is above 70 km/h (approx. 43 mph).

I have a mazda protege 2003 and my car stinks like rotten eggs when i put on the gas and on top of that, my engine light is blinking and my car shakes when i stop at a red light!


i have a 2003 mazda protege. this is the third time my check engine light has come on. the first time the car started to shake when i stopped at a light and the check engine light came on. i had a readout done and it said misfire. i took it to a garage and they changed my spark plugs and wires. 2 weeks later it came on again and my car started to shake whenever i stopped. readout said misfire. they fixed the coils. it has been 2 weeks since then and my car started shaking again whenever i stop and the light came on. what could possibly be wrong with it?

At 60mph, why does its runs at 3000rpm


is it shifting into overdrive?, auto or standard trans, at 60mph most vehicles with overdrive are at about 1800 to 2200 rpms...

has someone lowered your final drive axle gear ratio...?

Rough shifting


It sounds like the MAP (manifold absolute pressure) switch might be bad. Since the check engine light is on, have the computer codes read.

Overdrive transmission


O/D light flashing is computer indicating an issue with the transmission -no surprise. Make sure the transmission fluid is still good (dosn't smell burnt, right level). Slipping could be the TCC (torque Converter clutch) - not a cheap part - but would only really slip in 4th gear (above 40 mph). Slipping before that could be numerous things in the trans (low fluid pressure, torque converter issues).
I would be tempted to replace the fluid anyhow, but there is a chance an expensive issue is starting to arise - and replacing the fluid on a failing transmission could cause it to fail 100% (or can fix it nearly 100%). These can be touchy transmissions, too much DIY without the right diagnostic tools can be bad. Not what you wanted to hear, and not an expert, but have had some expertise with these.hope that helps.
