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.

Thanks everyone for the post it's good to know I'm not the only one with these issues...makes it seem as if there is a cure
New Issue ---today I smelt coolant so I looked under the hood and a tube(right in the center and above the spark plugs) had come loose from the engine! I put it back in and it seems to have stayed throughout the day...How big of an issue is this?
#2334 of 2547 engine noise after warming up

Mazda 626, 1999, 100000 miles, 2.0L.">
There is a weird noise that appears 5 minutes after warming up the engine and gets louder. Noise is localized in the area on the passenger side from the valves. Noise is dependent on engine speed.
Does anybody know what is that?

I have this same problem on my 2001 V6 626. It did not do this when the car was new but started getting worse after it was about 5 years old.
But then my battery died this summer (2007) and when I put a new battery in the idle surge problem went away. Unfortunately it came back again after about 4 months.
#2336 of 2547 mazda 626 2.0 lx transmission problems
Nov 22, 2007 (6:09 pm)
My sister picked up a 1994 626 the transmission surges and the engine idles way too fast. she manages this by shifting up and down thru the gears.Neutral at stop signs and stop lights etc.
Now the lock on the shift automatically locks on it's own, I am trying to help her with this problem.
Can any one give me some insight on this transmission problem ?

As a follow-up, the problem was a bad ground under the battery. Wiring to the lights.

#2339 of 2547 96' 626 Ignition Coil problem?
Dec 10, 2007 (7:30 am)
Hey guys, so for the past week or two my 626 has been up-shifting sporadically and on some of these up-shifts it will stall too, like it feels the car is going to die and then it gets a boost and keeps going (sorry if my explanation sucks i know nothing about cars!). So I took it my mechanic and he said it was the coil getting old, and it was quite corroded so he buffed it out and said that should fix the problem, but I'd need a new coil at some point in time in the future. On my way back home it did the up-shift thing again, but not as bad as it usually does (maybe i wasn't on the road long enough for it to get bad). I was thinking maybe it needs time to adjust now that its been cleaned out, or I dunno. So is this a coil problem? Old wiring ? Help please!!! lol
