I have a 92 Mazda protege. U have to drive it with both feet even though it's an automatic and it will died on u as ur driving down the road. It will restart after sometime of it setting or sometimes it...


If its automatic driving with one or two feet will not matter. As for dying while driving there is a few things to check. Air filter has it been changed recently? Fuel filter? And fuel pump. Your description of less mileage sounds like air filter first. If its severely dirty change it and see how it goes first.

2001 mazda protege dx 5 spd dies, brakes are seized up?


It seems that one of the pulleys is bent, or you are using the wrong timing belt. I would suggest changing them. That would probably explain why the timing belt keeps breaking. The braking problem can be related, or you simply have a leak somewhere in the system and should try bleeding the brakes after thorough inspection.

Madza protege 1998 front brakes making grinding noise when brakes applied , changed brake pads last week


You would need to apply some adhesive to the back of the brake pads.
This is common practice regarding disc brakes.
Quite a few brands are sold in most autoparts stores, and you should ask the clerk to show you some disc-brake noise reduction adhesives.
Once you get one of these adhesives, jack up the car again, and remove those pads. Follow direction as written on the adhesive's package.

Instructions on how to change the rear brakes on a 2002 mazda protege?


Give me a call.
1) I have owned a Mazda protege 5 for the last 4 years
2) I have done 2 complete brake jobs on it
3) I am a braking systems engineer.
4) I know what I am doing. I have done 100's of brake jobs on lots of different vehicles.

Biggest issue with the protege is getting the piston back in.
Look at the back of the caliper.
There is a thin head bolt on the back.
You need to take this off the caliper and reach inside with an allen head (I think it's 5mm). Then turn the set screw in there out a few turns. Then you can push the piston back in with a regular piston push back tool. Dont worry if the set screw comes out. Just thread it back in. But you HAVE to at least start it back in. It is part of the auto-adjust mechanism. After you do your brakes you may notice that your parking brake has A LOT of play. After you work it a few times it will tighten back up just fine.

Clean averything well and grease the slide pins with a good quality waterproof grease. There is special grease for slide pins.
