Question about 1998 Mazda Protege

1 Answer

Driving my mazda on the high way a horrible clacking sound coming from the passenger side of the hood immediately brought acceleration down, but the rpms rocketed. In just a matter of moments the gas gauge indicated a fourth of a tank of gas was consumed. The car beagn to sputter as I managed to take it off the highway. Finally the car died. I have power, lights and windows work. What can be the cause? I know the car is do for an oil change.

Sounds like air is shooting out when accelerating. Could this be an exhaust leak? Plugs, coils, hoses seem fine. Noise is coming from passenger side under engine sounds like.


yes could very well be an exhaust leak.but that should be kinda loud and annoying..also u could have a slight whistling sound coming from ur air intake hose coming from air cleaner box to ur intake or throttle body or ur air inlet goin to the motor. when the motor is accelerated it would produce a high pitch sound like a whistling .hope this can help

Hyundai accent 2005 when starting up the vechile and driving there is a constant ugly sound coming from the front passenger side wheel and when applying the brakes on there is a high pitch squeel


That screeching sound is a warning that your brake pads are worn down to the point where they should be immediately replaced. If you do not replace the pads, you'll score the rotor and incur an additional expense. Remember to replace the brake pads on both sides, i.e., driver and passenger side.

Theres a strange noise coming from my 99 millenia's motor but seems when i accelerate it the noise goes away but wen idle the cars just clack clack clack even when driving it makes the noise unless you are...


It sounds like you have a valve or rocker issue, I would run an engine cleaner through the engine. I suggest draining 1 quart of oil, pour in the cleaner and run engine for 5 min. Let engine cool and drain the oil. Pretty much another oil change. This will hopefully clean a sticking valve if this is the issue. But I also would check for anything hitting the pulley's or fans that may have came loose. I've seen this a lot. Good Luck. It may take 2 cleanings for the engine, so don't get disappointed.

Hear a popping sound from passenger side front end when accelerating. What can it be? Mazda Tribute


Does it only do it while your turning,or while going in a straight line?
Might be your CV joint, if it mostly does it while turning to one side or the other.

Hear a popping sound from passenger side front end when accelerating. What can it be? Mazda Tribute


Sounds very possible that it is an engine and/or transmission mount and/or a bad suspension part(s). It may be very simple to fix. Have a front end specialist first test drive it well...they often like to skip this part...insist on a test drive or leave and go elsewhere...and then have them inspect it if they will give you a free written estimate. Good Luck.
