VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) its on the back (firewall side) of the engine bay, on the tranny close to where the motor is, its one bolt, and a plug. Best way to change it is to remove the intake tubing, and move some wires out of the way and use a ratchet, extension, and a knuckle to reach the bolt, then should be able to pull it up.

Check EGR valve and circuit and also coolant temp sensor. Also bad cat converter or muffler can cause this.

Speed sensor


The sensor should be in the side of the transmission.
The speedo would stop working, or you would have shifting troubles with the transmission. And you would have a check engine light on with a trouble code for the sensor.

A/C has quit working on fan speeds 2 thru 4.....it will only work on speed 1 but the fan itself still works on all speeds...it just seems to kick the a/c off on speeds 2 thru 4 and blow hot air ....2001...


You probably have a bad fan switch. I had the same issue and had it diagnosed and replaced. It fixed the problem, but it seems to be coming back less than 2 years later.

2001 Mazda Protege cooling fan or thermostat


I am realizing that the cooling fan in this car is very important. It has two in case you didn't notice. The driver side fan motor is bad in mine and the only result is poor air conditioner performance in stop and go traffic. It's fine at high speeds. I would think the thermostat is likely the culprit in your case, but if the fans are not working at all, you should get those replaced. The motors may be bad in both, which could definitely cause overheating. I've been researching prices and you should be able to get the parts for less than $100 each and installation is just a couple of bolts on each assembly.
