Question about 2000 Mazda 626

2000 Mazda 626

My car starts right up when the engine is cold and runs great. After the engine is hot (I drive 25 miles each day to work) and I turn the car off, it will not "run" again if I get back into the car within an hour (give or take). The engine starts but will not idle without my foot on the gas pedal. When I take my foot off, the car shuts down. I have had the car to my mechanic and we have been able to recreate the problem in the shop. However, there are no codes on the computer indicating that the car has a problem. We have replaced the mass air flow sensor and radiator to engine sensor, but the problem is still there. We don't want to start replacing everything... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    My Mazda 626lxi runs erratically and when the revs drop it normally cuts out. I have changed the Lambda sensor and it did not make a difference. I do seem to hear like a hissing noise on the inlet side of the engine if that helps and also my engine overheated by running a bit low on oil, just about when the problem started. On acceleration it still goes well.

When the car is hot and will not crank have someone get under the car and TAP the gas tank moderately hard with a rubber mallet, if this helps start the car you have an intermittent problem with your fuel pump. If your not getting gas properly your problem will exist in your fuel system if you are not receiving a ecm code. So, it could be the pump, mass air flow, or injectors. I have replaced mass air flow sensors and received a damaged sensor or damaged it myself, but if you have a decent mechanic who knows what he is doing he can hook up to your computer and tell if it is your mass air flow.

I had a similar problem with my 626,what sorted it for me was to clean the crankcase breather tube on top of the rocker cover.The little valve inside this seems to stick but spraying some air intake cleaner (comes in an aerosol can) frees it out and allows the engine to breath better and so tick over evenly.

Well it could be an engine problem, or a bad connection with one of the battery cables. The engine would require more voltage to crank when it is hot, but not that much.
You might want to have someone check the engine to see how much drag is has when hot, by turning the crank by hand.

of course the top is hot water goes into the rad from the top and out of the bottom into the engine, the fact that the belt broke makes me wonder about the integrity of the water pump, the impeller might be slipping, could still be the rad , does the heat go from the top to the bottom???

99 mazda 626 lx -i have a slow oil leak. only leaks when i drive.


It sounds like it's actually burning the oil, rather than leaking it then, I'm assuming that your usage is a lot more than the drop you mention. The entire car has 234k on it? (or did you mean just the trans?) With that many miles I wouldnt be surprised if your valves are letting a little oil slip into the combustion chamber. If the usage is bad enough, it may be time for a valve job, or even a rebuild.

Engine shudders and dies trying to go from a red light


The engine has an electronic module where the spark plug wires connect to. Replace this and you will see the difference. Once this module heats up it will malfunction. After cooling down the car will start up again. hope this helps.
