I need a copmlete used Engine for a Mazda proceed cab plus year 1992,2.6l petrol. please help.

When going to purchase a new engine, why don't you make a choice between a used one or a rebuilt engine model, that is an exact fit with your Mazda's engine. As it is mostly used by car owners who have a preference of going in for used car parts. You can take a look to find almost all types of cars or trucks besides marine used engines here at They offer genuine OEM certification and a 1 yr warranty on parts.

1992 mazda 929 3.0 ltr v6 auto has no movement while in any gear.

check the transmission fluid, and shift linkage, if it is full you will need to rebuild the transmission, probably cheaper to replace with a used one.

I have got a mazda 323 its an automatic, every morning when l start it ,the time l shift it into gear it cuts off

check your transmission fluid, you can find this near the engine oil, it should be near by.

when you check leave it running for 60secs before checking and make sure it is on level ground.

I will never buy a mazda again. They have bad transmissions and engines. What is worse they use the same parts as Ford. How in the world do you combine a japanese and american parts into one engine? It keeps breaking down, thats what happens. I would ride it out since you are already gettin an engine but if you haven't purchased it, sell it and put that money towards another car, the dealer has used you like a gold digger.
