It sounds as if the transmission might be slipping. Check the fluid level and condition. If the color is not a strong red color and more of a brown or black color, then you will need to replace the transmission. A fluid change at this point will not help you. good luck!

Mazda 626 2.2L Turbo 1989 - Alternator - Fuel Pump

Hi am just up the road on the SSC, it is easier to remove the alternator from underneath the vehicle & if you look under the carpet under the rear seat there is a plate which gives you access to the fuel pump cover in the tank. The pump can be accessed from there. If you want the workshop Manuals I have just uploaded them.
You can download the GD 626 Workshop manual & the Turbo supplement by going to the site.
