O/D light flashing is computer indicating an issue with the transmission -no surprise. Make sure the transmission fluid is still good (dosn't smell burnt, right level). Slipping could be the TCC (torque Converter clutch) - not a cheap part - but would only really slip in 4th gear (above 40 mph). Slipping before that could be numerous things in the trans (low fluid pressure, torque converter issues).
I would be tempted to replace the fluid anyhow, but there is a chance an expensive issue is starting to arise - and replacing the fluid on a failing transmission could cause it to fail 100% (or can fix it nearly 100%). These can be touchy transmissions, too much DIY without the right diagnostic tools can be bad. Not what you wanted to hear, and not an expert, but have had some expertise with these.hope that helps.

I have a 01 mazda protege. When im driving, it acts like it wants to cut off for a second then drive fine for a while. Also cut off at a stoplight.


check the fuel filter for clogging up. if a fuel filter gets bad it will lack power and it will stall at stops. when starting engine up, the debris is on bottom of filter. as you drive, if its bad it will continue to plug up.

There might be a vacuum line off somewhere, or forgot to be reconnected.
Also have the idle/air control valve checked, ( It's mounted on the throttle plate), the pintal inside might be stuck or inoperative.

How old is your battery? If I am having problems with starting, and my battery is getting close to 5 years, I automatically change it, as I want to have reliable starts. This usually fixes the majority of my problems. If it doesn't, I take it to the shop and have the starter checked.

2000 Mazda Protege LX AC starts cold, blows "vapor", then warms


Sure take your buddy with you when you go so he can drive you away while they fix it but you do the talking with your buddy standing by ready to leave.

This is an old car and the mechanics will likly find many things wrong with it make sure they know that you what them to run it awile after it's fixed so that it in with some gas in the tank so they won't worry about running out.

Engine rotates but will not start. I have spark and can hear the fuel pump relay click, but I don't know if the fuel pump is working. T in Georgia


the only method that work was pulling the fuel pump fuse,wait 1 minute, crank her with out your foot being on the gas for 15 sec. Put the fuse back in , and start her up normaly. 1 st attempt she started but cut off, redid the process over , got in started her up normally, but had my foot 1/4 way down on the acclerator. She started and feathered the gas til she was fully operational. Let her stay on for about 10 minutes then took her out for a good long spirited drive.smile.gif
