Did you get any codes Does it have a Ford EECIV connectior for the pcm If not getting codes is easy. It should have a ADL connector if it is all Mazda.Look By battery there is connector that opens and has pins inside.Do a search to find out how to retrieve them . This sounds like a sensor but by retrieving the codes you can start on the ROAD to find out which one .
Good Luck I had the book for it but cant find it

Sound's like the same problem i had on my 626 dx 94 2.0l. It was running for a few minutes then RPM go down to 0 (no more power to the spark plug) and i am not able to restart before a few minutes until it cool down. The problem was the ignition module in the distributor. I had it fixed last year and 2 weeks ago same prob... I was lucky enough the part was still under warranty. It will cost you around 350$ to fix it, also change the leads if you dont know how old they are...
#1764 of 2547 IDLE AND RPM TO ZERO

Windowphobe6 can you solve my problem.
1994 Mazda Chronos 626 4 cyl automatic
When I come to a stop sign the RPM goes from idle to Zero after a few seconds.
I started my car this morning and it immediately went down to Zero .
I have to keep reving it to keep it going .
#1765 of 2547 Pulled codes, EGR valve. Can it be cleaned?
Jul 07, 2005 (8:40 pm)
Hi all. I used to post here but have had several years of trouble free driving and have gotten away from daily reading. CEL on for awhile now, but no code reader, so I stopped at Advance and had them pull the codes. They are saying EGR valve. Recommended cleaning first to see if this clears things up. I have throttle body cleaner and am ready to give it a go but I can't find the darn thing. Yes, I know what it looks like but I don't have the shop manual or Haynes. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Pictures would be awesome. Also, can I pull the hoses and just shoot cleaner into it or do I need to remove it completly and give it a good cleaning? Thanks

Same problem with '94 626. I have been looking for an answer to this problem as everything seems fine under the hood. I have checked the injectors, replaced the rotor and cap (it was worn a bit). still have the same problem. I am getting a little tired of driving my car like it has a standard transmission....acccelerating then letting off for it to change gears...I am also getting tired of other drivers on my ass due to the fact that I cannot accelerate to 60 Km/H within 150 Meters.
Press the gas very lightly and it's fine
Press the gas to accelerate normally and engine bogs and sounds like misfiring
I recently replaced the entire exhaust system and the problem has worsen since.
Anyone with an answer to this similar problem? Now I know I am not the only one.

Since you recently replaced the entire exhaust system and the problem has worsen. I strongly suggest you should check for loose or broken wires of all the O2 sensors.
#1770 of 2547 Misfiring Fix...REALLY.
Jul 11, 2005 (5:29 am)
I fixed my misfire problem. I first thought it was the injectors, wasn't. I have noticed a lot of you 4 cyl 626 owners have this problem so here is a little help.
You will need a 10mm wrench, screwdriver + pattern, clip remover-pliers, and a can of Carb cleaner or Brake cleaner (brake is more powerful...use wisely.) open your hood and find the little "Ford" logo just passed the air filter box. Before you do anything--> disconnect the neg (-) battery terminal.
The problem with mine was a dirty, dirty MAF
1. Release the air filter box clamps (like you are looking inside at the air filter).
2. Disconnect the MAF (Ford thingy) wires [hold the clip in underneath and pull from the connector)
3. Disconnect the "other thing" that plugs into the air filter box [pull the two clips on the side away from the connector and pull connector out)
4. Now, your air box and MAF are freer to move, so use a screwdriver to release the clamp on the top side of the MAF to remove both the MAF and the box as one piece (it makes it easier to take apart like this).
5. Be very careful on this step! ... Use your 10mm wrench to remove the 4 bolts that hold the aluminum housing to the air box, keep the gasket.
6. Now you have your MAF removed. As you may notice there is a metal screen, you may or may not remove this, it's up to you. I did. You will need the clip removers to remove it, as you can see.
7.) Looking through the screen you will notice a little hole on the top side; it's probably black and covered in soot. Bingo, that's the problem.
8.) Take your Carb cleaner or Brake cleaner, and spray inside the whole aluminum housing, just to clean it out. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING WITH A CLOTH OR Q-TIP, OR FINGERS DO NOT TOUCH IT, THESE ARE VERY SENSITIVE SENSORS. Spray inside the black hole... Spray ONLY...DO NOT TOUCH.... just a few squirts will do. You must not use anything other than an alcohol-based cleaner as this is an Electronic component area. When you are done spraying, the little hole should be sparkling clean, and you will notice inside there are shiny bright little wires (2 I believe).
9. Let the cleaner evaporate for 30 mins (just to be safe)
10. Re-assemble and install your part.
If this works for you, congratulations, I know the feeling.

I just replaced my expansion valve and receiver/dryer as per mechanics diagnosis, and everything worked great for about a week. I got in it friday and the a/c is blowing hot air again.
I checked for leaks and can't seem to find any, and the compressor is definitely working so I'm stumped.
Any ideas what could be wrong?
