Question about 1999 Mazda Protege

1 Answer

My 99 Mazda Protege cuts out when I start in Drive. It acts as if it is starved for fuel and then kicks in and all is well. At first I thought it was only happening when I was parked facing up a hill( it is worse) and then it was occurring at stop lights on level ground. Any thoughts?? FYI....I'm still getting nearly 30mph gallon on the highway and 20-25 in town, so it's not really affecting my gas mileage. Thanks.

It may be the fuel pump, the fuel filter may be dirty and need replacing or it could be a faulty injector or 2.

I believe it is located directly underneath the throttle body intake.

99 ford ranger, idles rough till it warms up,then runs good. Hard to start after it gets hot, it acts as if it is starved for fuel. Once it does crank it runs fine.


First thought: Check the idle air control valve, or whatever its Ford equivalent is. Sometimes these start to stick and cause the rough early idle that smooths out later.

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.

Mazda cuts out when given gas. we changed fuel pump .cleaned fuel filter but still acts like it dont get gas


try unplugging the mass air flow sensor in the air intake tube from the airfilter housing to the engine and see if the problem gets better, if it does the sensor is bad if not could be anything from a tune-up to catalytic converter

'94 Maxda Protege automatic transmission--no upshift, overdrive


Try changing the fuel filter. Many times fuel problems can be mistaken for transmission problems because the motor is starving for gas.

Engine bogs and stalls


Check the air filter hose. My '99 Protege was idling rough and would sometimes shut off. The air filter hose was cracked half way around. I replaced it (easy just loosen two hose clamps and pull out the sensor) and the car is running fine.
