| ||Model of the car:||Mazda 626|
| ||General comments:||MAZDA 626 4 cylinder, automatic transmission, 116,000 miles.|
Very good car, just not very forgiving.
If you want to avoid some of the problems others posted
then do the following.
1- Change the transmission fluid right away,
there is no transmission filter. I use Dextron III Mercon fluid.
2- Flush and change radiator fluid and thermostat,
otherwise car will eventually overheat
3- Wash road salt from the bottom of the exhaust system.
4- Clean mass airflow sensor, this takes about 25 - 30 minutes to
locate, remove, spray with throttle body cleaner, air dry, reassemble.
The check engine light may go away.
5-Change the fuel filter if high mileage and it has never been changed.
6- My timing belt lasted over 110,000 miles
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||No transmission filter, |
if the transmission overheats
**it's not that forgiving**
If you don't maintain it you will be
close to kissing it goodbye.
