#2322 of 2547 Auto box on 98 626 V6 not shifting past 2nd.
Oct 12, 2007 (1:28 am)
I have a 1998 Mazda 626 ES-V6. It has 174,000miles on it. I have had this problem with the transmission for a month now. It shifts into 2nd but with hesitation. It does not go past second. I had a reconditioned box put in it, still the same story. I was told it is an electrical problem with some sensor, solenoid, or relay. Where are these part located in the car.
Has any one out there experienced anything like this please.
Will appreciate if you can share the solution with me....
#2323 of 2547 '95 626 4cyl: Need help choosing a radiator
Oct 13, 2007 (12:40 pm)
I replaced my radiator some time last year. I don't remember were I got it from and don't have the receipt, but I'm sure I bought the cheapest one I could find. Now the radiator is leaking antifreeze under the transmission tube fitting. I don't want to make the same mistake twice. Can anyone recommend a good radiator or tell me what I should look for when shopping for a replacement radiator.
Thanks in advance,
#2324 of 2547 Engine Belt - screeching noise
Oct 13, 2007 (12:50 pm)
When my car is cold it makes a very high pitch screeching noise at the time of starting. I have Mazda 99 LX 4 cyl. When I use a spray on the belt before starting, this noise goes away and then next day it comes back again. This is going on for more then 2 years now. Is there a way to stop this noise. Any idea of what things it will involve during repair.

One of the belts are loose. Use a flashlight to inspect the belts. You may notice glazing on the one that's loose.
#2326 of 2547 PCM / engine & gearbox control module

My '98 Mazda 626 ES-V6 had resent problems with the transmission. I took it in for a diagnostic and the codes pulled out (P0710, P0711, P1474, P1479). All this relate to a faulty PCM. How and where can I order for a PCM? What info is required for PCM ordering?
Thanks you all....

Check albanymazda.com website. They sell genuine Mazda parts at 30-40% below the retail price that most Mazda dealers charge. A genuine Mazda radiator is your best bet. Under no circumstances buy another Chinese made piece of junk from Autozone or the like.

I have a 1998 Mazda 626 with a little over 91000 miles ...and it has weird electronic issues...if I role up the windows it shakes....sometimes when I turn on the AC it shakes ....
....Every time I take it to the shop it it rarely acts up or they say they don't know what it is. Has anyone experienced this?
One last thing....I have noticed that after a long road trip my engine light will flash when I accelerate .....is this a sign of transmission issues to come?

I have a 1996 Mazda 626 with 184,000kms on it. When I roll up two windows at a time, the drivers side goes faster than the passenger side. And recently, my car, when idle, smells like it is burning. It isn't oil leaking, and it isnt another fluid leaking. It only seems to happen in the winter. As for the engine light coming on, I can't say I have the same problem, so I can't help you. But mine is acting up as well, so you're not alone.
