Question about 1999 Mazda 626

1 Answer

Now it wont start...

As I was driving down the road I felt my car lose acceleration. When I pulled into the gas station I turned it off and it would not turn back on. It only starts if I have the gas all the way down and makes a bad muffle sound like it is trying to catch gas or something and it dies soon as i let up on the pedal. I recently had a head gasket job and transmission job done. Any ideas what may cause this before I take it to the shop?

You might want to check the fuel injection system it sounds like the fuel injectors are clogged and might not be letting enough fuel in

Ask your local technician to set up a fuel gauge pressure monitor so you can track it while your driving. Ask him what the normal range is so you will know when it falls below. Document it and let your Tech know. It sounds like your fuel pump is loosing Pressure.

Acceleration - cannot get above 40 miles per hr.


If the engine revs up while in drive and running at 40mph, your transmission is probably slipping. Try checking your transmission fluid level. If it is OK, I would get it by a garage to have them look at it to cofirm.
