Check the radial runout on the distributor shaft, by pulling the cap and rotor and physically moving the shaft back and forth and side to side there should be a minimal amount of play (radial runout) in the shaft. Check a Chilton for the exact spec. The drive gear could be worn and worst case the cam gear. "To much play will affect the indexing (timing) and cause faulty signals to the PCM." (power control module)

If your air filter and fuel filter are recent and your spark plugs are not more than 3yrs, then I'd try replacing the distributor cap(if present) and spark plug cables, or at least clean the connections first and see what happens. EGR valve is another possibility.

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.

RPMS AND CHECK ENGINE LIGHT


more than likely it could be a crank postion sensor but more than likely the tranny is slipping or having torque converter failure.
