    Bad fuel mileage 2000 protege

    Hey guys, My 2000 1.6L standard protege used to get good mileage. I remember it was about 11.6 KM/L and 12 KM/L which is almost 30 MPG. That's what it is supposed to get. Now i seem to only be getting 8.75 KM/L which is around 20 MPG.... Now it is supposed to get 31 on highway and 25 in the...

    Noises after axel, hub, knuckle install

    Okay so an update. I fixed the noise on accelerating. I needed to torque up the axle nut more. Got a torque wrench and did it and that noise is gone. Most of the car is fixed now however i am still having an issue. When turning sometimes i have clunking or clicking noise. It happens much more...

    Noises after axel, hub, knuckle install

    No one has any ideas? I am thinking maybe they sent me the wrong axle or something because i did notice that the half shaft was thicker than the one that i pulled out of there. The drive train noise can be heard when applying gas or clutch and it seems to come from the axle hub area.

    Noises after axel, hub, knuckle install

    Hello Guys, I have a 2000 Protg. 1.6L standard. It has 184500 KM on it. In the summer I replaced the clutch. It was harder than I had anticipated and I damaged the rubber boot on the outer CV joint on the driver’s side. I thought ohh I know I’ll need to fix it. So I priced the rubber boot and...

    Issue with bogging, no check engine light

    Alright well i fixed it. Basically i went to the wrecking yard and got the MAF sensor from a car there. He only charged me 20 and gave me the air filter with it for free since it was in pretty good shape and mine needed replacement. It was a bit of driving there but i popped it in once i got it...

    Issue with bogging, no check engine light

    K so two things. 1. I don't know anyone with another 1.6L protege and the MAF's are different for the different models so the aunt i have who has a 2.0 wont work. The wrecker has one from a 1.6L that has a broken tranny that he said he would sell me for 40$. I went and put the volt meter to the...

    Issue with bogging, no check engine light

    Okay i did some analysis on this and read the voltages out of the MAF sensor. What i did was took a 12v multimeter and accesses the 5 wires and read voltage. I did four tests. My theory is the Scanner tool is an easy way to access readings across the different systems of the car. However they...

    Issue with bogging, no check engine light

    The workshop manual also tells me i can test the voltage with a test light on the PCM terminals by tapping it into the wire. Im gonna do that tomorrow morning and go from there. It could very well be a MAF issue since one of the stripped screws was holding the MAF in place. Thanks

    Issue with bogging, no check engine light

    Well i read about a fuel filter issue so i popped the fuel hatch door from under the seats and looked inside and the mesh filter looks fine, so does theinside of the tank and all that. One strange thing i noticed was a gray connector that went to the back of the car that said "89" on it in a...

    Issue with bogging, no check engine light

    The O I/M relates to the oxygen sensor and the EV is the EVAP system. The C is the Cataylist, which i expect is the catalytic converter.

    Issue with bogging, no check engine light

    K well i bought the manual. It is 1400 pages or something. I went to the diagnostic section and it has a list of steps for the issues i am having. Step 3 or 4 askes me to connect a reader and check some PID's. I also got a code reader the Innova 3020 and it shows no codes. However not all the...

    Issue with bogging, no check engine light

    Interestingly enough there is one bolt that holds on the coil that is snapped. I dunno who worked on this car but im not gonna drill it out as it is unnecessary. I fixed the one on the MAF which was messed, i think cause someone tried to pull it off. Anyways.

    Issue with bogging, no check engine light

    K so i checked the spark plugs and they were hurting hard. I replaced them and now the old ones look so bad compared to the new ones. I could post a pic but i don't think it matters. Regardless, i drove it again and the same issue apply. I thought about the spark plug wires also but haven't...

All the service manuals want me to put my credit card in and pay scrills and im not down for that. I can maybe find it later if i look more. Does anyone know...

    Issue with bogging, no check engine light

    Alright well i got the MAF cleaner from the store. I sprayed it on and reinstalled it. One strange thing i noticed was one of the screw's holding on the MAF were stripped so i had to drill it out. Anyways i think it made it worse.... Does that mean i need a new MAF? What else could the issue be?

    Issue with bogging, no check engine light

    I can go and buy "brake kleen" at the store. No issue. I am by no means a real mechanic, backyard mechanic for sure though. I did the whole V8 Rx-7 by myself. I don't want to spray some stuff on a sensor and mess it up though. However, I know what the MAF is and where is at. If i mess the senor...

    Check engine light is on

    Issue solved with a new rubber boot as suggested. However, there is an issue that still remains, perhaps as a result? See here: http://www.mazdas247.com/forum/showthread.php?123851587-Issue-with-bogging-no-check-engine-light&p=6410543#post6410543 Thanks!
