Question about 1994 Mazda 626
My car still has that problem. It even happened tonight while I drove at speed about 30 - 40 MK/H. Should I just simply get the transmission replace?

I took my car back two days ago. My technician experienced my car's problem during his testing drive in the weekend. He said the problem start happenning after 20 minutes drive, when engine and transmission got hot. It is just like what I described before. He put "Lucas Transmission Fix" into the transmission fluid, and said it may fix the problem. But the confidence level was low. From the website (http://www.gimmelucas.com/osc/eshop/product_info.php/products_id/13): "Lucas Transmission Fix stops slipping, hesitations or rough shifting in worn transmissions.". Seems like it fit my problem very well. My technician told if my tranny will need to be replaced or rebuilt (cost the same amount of money), if the problem is still ther after 200 KM drive. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks.

Hi, Countrycurt0. Thanks for asking. My car is still in the garage. I asked my technician to keep the car so they can try it out on freeway during night time. Not sure if they can replicate the problem, and find out the cause. Will definitely let you know.

Your problem is your ignition coil. Had same problem. Your RPM will jump up and down high speed.
This should fix your problem

Does your Mazda have a standard trans (clutch), or automatic.
If it's automatic, the tranny might be slipping, and if it's a standard shift the clutch may be slipping. Does the actual driving speed (not engine rpm's) seem to stay the same when this happens? If you are still traveling at the same speed even though the engine speeds up, it's your tranny or clutch. I don't think the timing belt and tensioner have anything to do with this. countrycurt0
