Having years ago,owned a trans repair business,I will tell
you, that you don't want to consider removing any trans axle
in your driveway. You need a lift

I would go to a trans only repair shop and get involved
I my shop we took the customer into the shop and educated
them and were honest. So,make sure your in there and involved
and they can prove what your issues are.
They love rebuilding them,that is what they do
You need a solution to your issues

I would suspect engine misfires etc,motor and transaxle mounts,
bad drive axle joints

Mazda 626 2.2L Turbo 1989 - Alternator - Fuel Pump

Hi am just up the road on the SSC, it is easier to remove the alternator from underneath the vehicle & if you look under the carpet under the rear seat there is a plate which gives you access to the fuel pump cover in the tank. The pump can be accessed from there. If you want the workshop Manuals I have just uploaded them.
You can download the GD 626 Workshop manual & the Turbo supplement by going to the site.

1989 mazda 626 turbo window washer pumps

well the pump for the washer solvent is probably fried (unless there is no solvent in the resovoir). and on the gas gauge the way that works is there is a little float handle that goes up and down with the gas. when you put gas in this little float floats on top of the gas and this is how your car knows how much gas you have it sounds like it is getting stuck and will probably need to be replaced
