Question about 1994 Mazda 626
Since the HOLD light is illuminated, you need to retrieve the codes. You can do this easily with a special tester connected to the data link. Assuming you do not have this tester, you can do it a different way. Locate the Data Link Connector (DLC) on the left side of the engine compartment. Ground the service connector test terminal (TEN for 2.0L, TAT for 2.5L) and turn ignition on. Transmission warning codes are flashed on HOLD indicator light. Codes are flashed in numerical order if more than one code is present. Note the fault code numbers and let me know what they are so we can begin proper diagnostic steps.
Usually it is only stored with the light remaining on but just to be safe you should still test for any stored codes. Since this is somewhat of an intermittent problem I suggest having the transmission fluid/filter replaced and inspect the fluid for burnt smells or metal shavings.
Let me know the code, so that we could proceed.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
