#2266 of 2547 Issues with my 1999 Mazda 626
Feb 21, 2007 (1:42 pm)
I just bought this car and im noticing already that it having problems. (1) If i leave the car off for a while, let say overnight, it turns on fine. but when i park and and come back let say for like 20 mins or so, the car cuts off!!! (2) When it idle, it vibrates and makes this weird sound now and again. i can't explain it. Like its about to turn off and then it pick up again... (i hope ya can understand this)
Any input. PLEASE!!!!

My car doesn't seem to be getting any gas. When you press on the gas the car just barely putts along. We replaced the fuel filter, but it didn't make a difference. Someone told us we need to replace the Emission Switch? Can someone tell me what exactly that is and is it something we could replace ourselves. Any help is appreciated.

My mazda 1999 at 60k miles have had the same problem as you mentioned for at least two years. It's running fine. Funny things is that the check engine light will be on every one to three months and I need cut off the battery cable each time when it's on. I once put $700 to Pep boy to replace two sensors and they couldn't fix it and refunded the money to me. If you have fixed your car's problem, Please let me know here. Thanks!

My 1996 Mazda 626 Cronos is having some problems. I recently changed the battery because the car wouldn't start when we were experiencing the -50F weather in my town. Also, in the past 2 months, my check engine soon light has come on atleast 3 times and now it is on again. It doesn't blink, but is just staying on steady. I remove the battery post and it goes away, for a while, and then comes back. Does anyone know what it could be?

My 626 automatic is downshifting normaly when going at a steady speed above 45mph, although it will do it sometimes below that speed. I've taken it to 2 different transmission shops. 1st one said it was bad motor mounts which i ended up replacing myself and the problem continued. 2nd one said it was a bad speed control module which they replaced yesterday and the problem continued. both places said that the transmission was fine, but the malfunction only happens sometimes and neither mechanics saw it when taking it on a road test. is anybody familiar with this problem? any ideas?

I can't remember where it's said that there are 6,000,000 cars are running with check engine light on in USA. I suggest you buy a OBDII scanner from Walmart(about $70)and read the error code to ask online or local store where need fix (most times, some sensor need clean or change). Meantime you can use your scanner as switch to erase the error code in your car's computer(turn off the check engine light) and no need cut off battery cable under hood every time when the light is on. Until some day the light always is on when start the car. Then the some where is truly need fix. May at that time your new car should be coming.

Thanks a lot for the information. I'll look into buying one of the ODBII scanners.
