As you didn't explain which fluid is low, here's a general explaination. There's always a cause for any fliud being low, the only fliuds that can fall below minimun levels are brake fliud [ as the brake pads or shoes wear it takes more fluid to push the surfaces together ] if not checked on a routine service, such as oil changes. The other is windshield washer fliud, which is lost with use.
Any other fliud loss isn't normal, and should be addressed.

WELL ITS A NO RUN


No, not the coil. you just showed it is a gas problem with your starting fluid test. 32psi sounds too low, so before you suspect the injectors not pulsing, you need to check with Mazda for the specific pressure for your protege. There is a problem with the pump or the pressure regulator, but something is not right. Multi-port injection systems usually are 40--45psi and above.

2006 Mazda Neo 2 manual makes no reference what symbol to look for on the dash if the car has low engine coolant.


It may not have a sensor for that other than the overheat symbol.
It is easy to check your coolant level. Look for something like this under the hood https://ebayapi-loc8apartltd.netdna-ssl.com/00/s/OTAwWDE2MDA=/z/cKkAAOSwwpdW70F-/$_1.JPG it is a coolant expansion/overflow tank. The liquid inside should be greenish and the tank usually has min and max lines. If it goes below the min line, add more coolant. While you are there, don't forget to check your oil and maybe transmission fluid.

In my CX-9 on the left side of the drivers dash, below the steering wheel, there is a little adjustment wheel for headlight up and down adjustments. I believe it has 3 or 4 positions. Check out the video at 1:13 mins in.

Mazda rx8 steering heavy


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Please try to fill in the power steering fluid on the power steering reservoir. When filling please move the steering wheel to the left and right for the fluid to go down. This can help lighten the steering wheel. Please do check if you have power steering leakage too for this may be the cause of fluid loss.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I have a 1995 Mazda 626 I have been reading about the OD Light blinking and engine light on as I am trying to fix this myself without having to replace the tranny. ( I am a female) I have changed the fluid...


Hello littlemegmb, I am so sorry your having issues with your transmission.
My best guess with the info you posted.
1. I have to ask, because you didn't mention it. Are you sure you used the right fluid?
I am pretty sure that the 95 Mazda is supposed to have Dextron II, or higher. using the wrong fluid can cause some of the issues you are having, and can do perminent damage. If you are not positive that you used the right fluid, please call any parts store and give them the info on your car so they can look up the right fluid. Also, ask them how many quarts you should need when you change the fluid, I think it's around 7 quarts
2. If you know for sure that you used the right fluid, myself, I would let the car run for about 5 minutes, then check your tranny dip stick to make sure that you put enough fluid back in to the tranny, it needs to be checked while it's hot.
99% of the time, when a transmission is slipping, or, it wont move, it's low on fluid.
You do need to be mindful that it is very easy to overfill the transmission, which can lead to other serious issues.
3. One reason that the transmission seems to work better when it's cold, is, all the fluid has had a chance to drain down into the pan, but, once the car is started the fluid again begans to circulate leaving the level in the pan way to low.
I really, really hope that you find it's something simple like the fluid is way too low.
That is my best guess.
Good luck!

How do you fill the transmission fluid on a manual 1993 mazda mx3 v6


the transmission dip is located under the hood and with a funnel you put the transmission fluid in and remember to keep checking while the engine is running warm because it does tend to expand and you want to make sure you're right on the line when you see the red fluid on the stick.

Engine runs doesn't drive or reverse


first, check the transmission fluid lever, and see if it's low. ( the transmission dipstick can be found on the right side of the engine ( yellow knob ) ). check with your owners manuel, and fill as needed. you put the transmission oil in where the dipstick is. If that does not work, unfortunatly, you will be needing a rebuild ( 1800$ canadian, i don't know how much that compares to in your money)

Cheers
