    Do you hear the electric fuel pump start when you turn the key to "on"... not "start"? It should run for a few seconds then shut off.

SOURCE: 2001 mazda protege will not start

well, with all that you have changed the only two possible things that are left PCM and the ECM....

Do you have an alarm system on this vehicle? If you purchased this car second hand it may have something that is inhibiting the engine from firing. From what you have told us here that would be where I would start looking.

I really hope this is helpfull

SOURCE: Does my 2000 Blazer have a distributor cap and rotor?

First I wasn't a party to this situation, so I cant say for sure if you were ripped off or not. I can tell you that the symptoms you were having and the repair does possibly match up. Your rotor though is part of the wheel assembly and has nothing to do with overheating, One thought is you may have had another issue they noticed while repairing your vehicle. I would definitely follow up with them and find out why your rotor was replaced:)

SOURCE: blown head gasket. what is the cause

Running hot will cause head gasget to fail. Or if head is not torqued properly, or a faulty head gasget. Pressure in cooling system means, blown head gasget or cracked head.

Mazda Etude 180 ise produces a screeching sound and overheats, over a short distance. What can it possibly be, water pump or radiator, belts ,,,,, ? So depressing.


belt squeal
check tensioinand condition the drive belt to the water pump
or if the timing belt drives the water pump thats a bigger job

suspect a blown head gasket
if it boils out of the radiator

oil in coolant
coolant or water bubbles on dip stick

flush the radiator
refill with new coolant
replace
any old or leaking hoses
the thermostat
make sure the engine cooling fans turn and spin fast enough to cool

Fixed every possible cause but still overheating


checked water pump for circulating the coolant?
checked the radiator if the coolant circulated correctly?
thermostat renewed?
thermo switch checked whether is working?
fan switch checked whether is working?
checked whether the matrix could circulate the coolant?
ckecked whether there is any valve on the matrix hoses and is working?
have you bled the cooling system ?
have you checked whether you have a cylinder head gasket with problem and pressurized the water?
checked whether have a cracked cylinder head and on accelaration expanded the water hoses?
have you checked whether the radiator cap is working ok?
have you checked whether the radiator cap is with the correct pressure for the cooling system?

My mazda protege is running hot and the radiator has water


Some thing too check:
Make sure coolant level is up to line and clean (not dirty, do to clogged radiator, may need to be flushed or replaced).
Make sure air flow through the out side of radiator is clear (dirt, leaves, ect..) .
Make sure fan is working properly equip t (is not running too slow). Or Manual (belt driven) fan clutch is working properly, not loose or spinning too freely?
Check for broken or cracked fan blades itself.
Check radiator cap, (no gasket tears).
Could be thermostat going bad ?
Could be coolant temperature Relay or sensor/switch (from computer) going bad?
Check radiator hose(s) (too soft, may collapse)?
In some rare cases:
Timing could be off.
Could be water pump.
Could be blown head gasket(s).
Could have cracked head(s).
ECT..............Hope this was some help???

My van had over heated, I let it cool down, started it again, and it would not idle correctly and I had no power. I put new spark plugs in, new wires, new distributor cap and new rotor, still no power to...


When engine cold, remove radiator gasket, fill with water and start the car with the radiator cap off, if the water is blowing out from the radiator, then you have a blown head gasket or bent head. If the water doesn't move inside the radiator if it's still then your head gasket and head are fine. I asume that you didn't move the distributor to change the rotor and cap so there is no chance to left the spark timing a little delayed. Remove the new spark plugs one by one and look for a sign of rust, that could mean that cylinder is getting water from the head. (Only if it didn't pass the radiator test).

2002 Mazda protege heater only blows cold air and engine is over heating. What could be wrong with this car?


1. See if simply adding coolant fixes it. 2. Try replacing the thermostat and the radiator cap. One way to check the thermostat is to start the engine and feel the upper radiator hose. The hose should not feel uncomfortably hot until the engine has warmed-up and the thermostat opens. If the hose does not get hot, it means the thermostat is not opening.
2. Look for antifreeze leaks, inspect the radiator, water pump and hoses. 3. If there are no leaks, and the above steps don't correct the problem, you might have a blown head gasket.

1998 Mazda 323 Protege - constantly overheating, even after fairly short runs (10 minutes). Coolant overflow bottle turns from green to dark grey each trip and almost "explodes".


Possible cause ;
1. Water pump
2. Thermostat
3. Bad head gasket.
4. Low coolant level.
Try to replace thermostat first , this way you illuminate thermostat and coolant level , you'll have to ad coolant after replacement and purge system.

How do you replace the water pump on a 1992 Mazda Protege?


Hi:

The water pump is driven by the timing belt, which is on the passenger side of your engine. You would need to remvoe all belts, and then the timing belt cover, and the timing belt to change your water pump.
