Question about 2006 Mazda Miata

Open Question

My throttle stuck open as I was changing up the gears after overtaking. This is the first time I have experienced this and was quickly remedied when I slowed the car back down and dropped back to third gear. The car is a 2006 Mazda mx5 mk3 1.8se with 23k miles

SOURCE: mazda 121 manual gear box stuck in gear

What do you mean "rooted" ?
Generally if a manual transmission is stuck in gear it points to one or several of 6 possibilities ( barring any damage to hard parts such as gears or shafts.)
1: Damaged shift linkage.
2: Worn clutch.
3: Faulty clutch slave cylinder.
4: Damaged fork assembly.
5: Damaged synchronizers.
6: Bad throwout bearing.

Be prepared for sticker shock when pricing repairs or parts !
Mazdas are not cheap to buy parts for or to work on.
( thats why I will never own one )

My 1995 kia sportage is loosing power, wenever i accelerate it does not pick up speed quickly, so overtaking is a major problem, and the engile idling is too high! past the 1 mark almost 1 and a half. what...


Timing issue needs to be checked out first with a timing gun and maybe adjusted accordingly, There are mivor maintanences that you can do like put injector cleaner into gas tank which will clean your fuel injectors and opens it up so more gas gets into the piston heads. Simple things does wonders. Also you can put a cleaner to where the throttle is at on top of engine so it does not stick. Have you yet put new spark plugs or distributor cap and rotor because if you did would make this same problem with timing. If you changed the distributor cap and rotor and did not replace the old one with the new one in the exact same place is why timing could be off by an hair or two.

We a vac line on the top of the tranny.cant find where to attached it. the new motor is reall hard to start.it pops and smells like it flooding. it came with the trotle body on the motor should i replace...


The pops and the disconnected vac(uum) line and the smell of fuel may al be related. The vacuum line to the auto transmission is there to tell that gear shift about the level of load that the engine is under. When you first start the car and accelerate really slowly notice how quickly the gear box shifts up through the gears. However if you accelerate hard the transmission holds each gear for a long time to take advantage of the high power delivered by the high engine speed. The vacuum line conveys to the transmission the level of vacuum in the inlet plenum manifold. When you accelerate slowly the throttle plates only opens a small amount and maintains a strong vacuum level. This vacuum permits the transmission to shift up through the gears quickly. If hard acceleration is demanded the throttle plate is fully open and there is almost no vacuum. The lack of vacuum on the transmission restricts gear shifts. The vacuum lie usually makes connection with the transmission on the left (facing towards the front of the car) near the selector switch. The other end of this line must make connection with a port on the inlet manifold plenum or runner (on my car the port connection is actually very close to the injector on the inlet runner towards the back of the engine). The open connection port is causing the other problems. With un-metered air entering the plenum (not passing through the throttle) the engine computer is struggling to keep the injection times long enough to keep the fuel to air mix balanced. This gives rise to very uneven running and perhaps the 'pops' and smell of fuel that you are experiencing. Locate the connection and stick the vacuum line from the transmission on it. Make sure that there no further leaks compromising the inlet vacuum. Make sure the interior of your 'new' throttle is very clean. All of these things help and add up to a better running engine.

Misfiring


If you are getting a lot of misfires and you know everything is good (i.e. spark plugs & wires, etc...), you may want to check the cat converters as one may be plugged. you can use the front O2 ports to check this.
