I have the 95 Mazda 626 and I have exactly the same problem. Besides, the problem worsens after I pump in gas. I have been using superior gas (Oct#: 91) Everytime after I pump in the case, the car stalls 5 seconds after I start the engine. It stalls in P, R and D. The problem worsen when engine is hot, also acceleration is not smooth (like misfire). However, when engine is cold and when I am not pumping gas, idle speed is 700rpm and the car runs fine. I have replace the Spark Plugs, Plug Wires, PCV Valves recently. The idle screw is adjusted to the maximum already. Should I replace the other items as well? Anyone can help? This car had been nothing, but problematic since I bought it.

It's usually the blower resistor. IIRC, it's on the bottom of the blower housing.

I think I have a similar problem. My 99 626ES V6 5 speed manual hesitates when I shift gears. The higher the RPM when shifting the worse it gets. Can produce similar effect by letting off gas without shifting and punching it again. I suspect a control problem but don't know if it's the throttle body, airflow sensor, CPU, or something else. Had this looked at when under warranty and the dealer said they couldn't fix it as this was normal. I bitched but they wouldn't hook it up to diagnostics. I would pay for diagnostics but am not sure it would show up on the scope. I like the car a lot except for this issue. I have 120K on it now and the only failure was the steering rack under warranty. I am now due for clutch, brakes, struts, axles, and a few other minor parts then hope to get another 120K out of it. I can do this work my self inexpensively. I thrash this car daily. Anyone have any Ideas on the hesitation problem.

Hey have you got your problem fixed?
I don't think I will be worrying about mine for too much longer. I rear ended an 02 Mazda Protege yesterday and it completely decimated my front end. The protege only made it out with minor scuff marks. Don't think I'll be getting my baby fixed after this. I love you 626...RIP
#1757 of 2547 ODBII P0443 Evap pruge control

I have a 1998 Mazda 626 that keeps giving a ODBII code of P0443 evap purge control system. I traced part of the vacuum line and tried to find the charcoal canister. I canít find where either of them end up going from the tank to the front of the car. I also replaced the gas cap (hoping for the simple fix) it was a no go. Any ideas?

Hey I know with american cars if the Tork Converter Lockup switch is defective and It doesnt "Unlock" when you come to a stop it will stall the Car Just like stopping a 5 spd without pushing in the clutch.

Clicking when its moving? Thats sounds like the CV Joint is going bad. Does it get Louder or more noticable when turning?Especially at slow speeds?

If it has fuel and spark it pretty much has to start....fire + fuel = explosion, and that's pretty reliable physics. So if you really have fuel and spark you might have busted a timing belt. You might take off the oil cap and have someone spin the engine and see if the camshaft is turning in there.
