things to check first

need to see if coolant and oi l has mixed on the dipstick
or sluggy oil and coolant mix in radiator

does the coolant gush out with motor at idle
if the coolant cap is left off

My car shut down wen im driving alot wen im at the lith 1996 mazda 626

have you checked if your air filter is blogged? since you removed the air flow meter and run ok means that the flow of the air is wrong read and the ECU is causing shut off the engine. Check also if the air flow meter itself is not working correctly.

Find put where the hissing noise is coming from, you have a vacuum leak. Fix that , and everything else will be fixed. After you fix it, disconnect the battery for 5 minutes to reset the computer and fuel trims.

sounds like the head or head gasket is blown. your cylinders may be getting coolant in them which will not only cause the motor to lockup, but also cause bent rods and valves. check your oil dipstick and transmission dipstick to see if it looks like water or coolant is presant, also check the coolant to see if it smells like gas or has any kind of oil in it, if so, your head is likely blown.

Sounds like this may be the coolant recovery tank low of coolant. But I may be wrong. You need an owner's manual or at least go to the Mazda web site and sign up on the owner's section. You will be able to learn about your vehicle there..

first thing get sombody to check all fluids in your car. if the red light comes on only with the air conditioning on then it seems to me insuffient cooling. i say this because your aircondiioning condensor fancy name for rad is in front of your actual engine rad and some times built in to the engine rad itself. have to tried stopoing at a red light with the airconditioning off?? does it still do what you say it does??
i really cant see the problem being the altenator because it only powers your blower motor and anythign electrical. you air conditioning is powered by a belt attached to the motor. hope this helps you.

Engine coolant

you need maybe 1+1/2 gallon of distilled water;NOT TAP WATER and 1 gallon of Mazda Coolant; NOT 50/50 mix..


1.from the radiator, remove the drain plug, let it drain. for faster drain, also remove the resevoir cap.

2.when empty, put drain plug back on refill the resevior with the distilled water until full.

3.with the resevior cap off start engine with heat settings on Hi, until the coolant temp guage begin to rise or when thermostat opens. turn off engine.

4. repeat steps 1-3 until only clear water drains.

5.make sure drain plug is in, refill resevior with Mazda coolant til about half way (in case there's any expansion), do not put cap on yet, let the air bleed. start engine, let it run for 5 min.

6. accelerate in park/neutral to 2500RPM's (DO NOT drive yet) to help bleed the air keep an eye on coolant level because you will have to top it off.

7.check level as temp reaches normal; half point as usual. put resevior cap on drive around the block and check level again. make sure coolant is on the proper level; "F" or "MAX"...of course when the engine cools it will be below, but while the temp is normal it should be on the proper level.

If its on the left side of the instruments and looks like it is a house with a chimney in the center its the low coolant light.
I hope this helps.
