2004 Mazda Protege Transmission Issues

Transmission speed sensor loss of signal will not allow torque converter lock up (no overdrive). Transmission filter should be serviced at 80,000 miles. Perform an OBDII scan for stored fault history. The scan should show any issues with trans. sensors or solenoids that can be addressed during trans. service. Let the ODBII scan be your guide to any repairs to avoid buying parts you don't need.

When driving 65 or above car loses power,turn off ignition and restart runs fine for a couple of miles then same thing. Runs great around town (car is not getting hot)

I would first scan computer to see if there are any stored codes, as these codes can help in pin pointing problem, i would start by checking fuel preasure but this has to be done when power loss starts, if preasure is good then i would check for a bad ignition coil, you may need to replace to test this one.

2003 mazda protege. 110,000 miles. Runs great except that it has developed a low and rough idle over the past couple of months. I hear it is supposed to idle at 900 rpm, but it idles now at 650-750 rpm...

I had the same issue except my car is a 2002 it is your idle control valve which cost anywhere from 174.00-500.00 depending where you buy the part. try i had my car checked out at madza and my husband is a mechanic between to two i have no doubts. Good luck.

No Power sometime, Engine Light is Flashing

If fuel filter hasn't been done lately I would start there & if you can, have fuel pressure tested while your at it. You may have tired fuel pump but pressure test will confirm. If you recently filled up somewhere different last time you got gas, I'd also try some "Heet" or similar just incase you got a tank full with some water in it.
