#4 of 34 Mazda 626 4 cyl. engine differences???
Jan 31, 2007 (8:53 pm)
I have a 1996 Mazda 626 with a bad engine. It has the 2.0L 4 cyl. with a manual transmission. It seems the only engine that will work is a 1996 or 1997 model engine. I can buy a 1994 2.0l worth the money. What is the difference in these engines? Both are DOHC engines and look the same. I have looked at the parts web sites and all the engine gaskets, timing belt and internal engine stuff is the same. The distributors are different but they use the same mounting gasket, that would make me think you could change out the distributors. So if I have a complete 1994 model car can I put the engine out of it in the 1996 model and get it to run? Thanks for the help!

I just bought a used 626 LX with 105,000 miles and it is an automatic. I was wondering if anyone has this problem. It seems like the transmission is not going into overdrive. I go about 65 and the RPM is about 3000, that seems high to me. Also has anyone replaced the instrument planel light? Thanks.

I have a 2000 626 lx and yesterday my O/D off light just came on... my car won't go to 4th gear and my O/D button won't come on.. I have just been going around on websites to find out if this is the common problem with these cars and it sounds like it is. I have 101,600 miles on my car and I bought it at 53,000 where I have had to fix many parts of it already... i think it's time for a new car.. what do you think?

hi i have a 97 626 and i also had a valve tap, i bought a service manual for it and it states that this sound is normal and also that it has hydraulic valve lifters so you cannot adjust them. i just let it go and it went away in about a month...

I have a 99 mazda 626 4 cylinder it overheated on the express way and shut off now it wont start. had to have it towed back home, i fixed the leak it had, one of the small radiator hoses behind the exhaust manifold was cracked,I also replaced the spark plugs but still wont start, it cranks but will not start. I charged the battery and still it cranks but will not start. I took off the valve cover just to see the timing belt and it looks good its even tight so Can anyone help me with this problem?
