You're 5th gear syncro has just gone out. It keeps your shift forks and slider gear from popping off. It also makes it possible to shift the gear in. It's going to take a rebuild of the transmission to fix this problem.

Yes it is the clutch slipping, in high gear the greatest load is put on the clutch so that is when they slip the most.

I have a 1999 Mazda 626 5 speed and my rpms seem to always be high weather I'm driving n town, 4th gear 30 mph 2100 rpm, or on the highway 5th gear 70 mph and rpms at 3100. This I'm sure is killing my gas...


check clutch for slipping condition,mayb due to worn clutch disc or a oil contaminated disc or a weak pressure plate not locking disc to flywheel therefore giving u a slipping condition and higher than normal rpms

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.

Timing Belt 2002 Mazda 626


re-install belt, lining up the timing marks, crank to TDC #1 cylinder, cma pulleys have marks on them, line them up to the index marks as well. If you have a drive wheel in the air, you can pop the car into 5th gear (make sure it's chocked!) and rotate the wheel to turn the engine for alignment, etc. You can put a wrench/socket on the cam bolt to align it as well.
