    does it run good for the first 15 minutes? Does the engine has power in the first 15 minutes? It could be a clogged exhaust system. It could be a lot of things, please describe more about the condition.

Did they install a fuel filter also? Sounds like it might be plugged or your new fuel pump might be defective.

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.

Where is the fuel pump on a mazda protege 93?


The fuel pump is in the fuel tank. You have to remove the tank to get the pump out. I would check the fuel pressure with a gauge to make sure the pump was out just to be sure. Changing the pump is a lot of work, and checking the fuel pressure will let you know if you need a new pump.

Did it start doing this after installing the new battery?
Does it crank slow? If that's the symptom, I don't see how it could be many of the other things you listed. For example: a clogged fuel filter won't cause the starter to turn the motor slowly. Fuel filters rarely are the issue anyway.
If it's cranking fine but not starting when it's hot, start by checking electrical connections, primarily at sensors. Look for loose or corroded connections. Also, make sure the cables are clean and tight at the battery. I've seen some corrosion cause issues. Also check relays and fuses to be seated good and clean. Maybe wiggle them a little to make sure they are seated properly.
Unfortunately, electrical issues can be a pain to sort out.

Battery dies after car sits


a lot of chargers have an automatic setting. otherwise charge it on a lower amp setting like 15 amps for an hour - hour and a half. question is why did battery die in the first place?
