Best Answer

Get a service manual from one of the auto parts stores. You will need to pull off your belts, water pump pulley, timing cover. You might as well replace the timing belt because you will need to remove the timing cover. Also replace your cam seal (if there is one) and your crank seal. Don't forget to replace the thermostat and the serpentine and alternator belts. Note: never add city tap water to dilute antifreeze. The lime will eventually clog your radiator. Use distilled water to dilute or the premix which will last a very long time as antifreeze never goes bad (contrary to popular belief). The only thing you will eventually need to replace every two years is your thermostat (until your water pump fails again).

What is the cost to replace the clutch in a 1997 Mazda Protege?

I have a 1997 Mazda Protege ES and the Replacement Clutch cost about $125 from Advanced Auto Parts. The labor charged was around $350 at a local shop. I also had a broken Clutch Fork (the reason I had to get it fixed) which cost me only about $25 from Mazda's dealership. All together I had to pay around $500, but I believe I got a relatively good Labor cost; just shop around for the best price.

Can 1997 Mazda protege auto transmission swap to 1999 Mazda protege?

not likely. the 1997 Mazda protege is a different chassis than the 1999 protege (BHA to BJ, respectively). the two transmissions between the two generations are also different, the BHA utilizing the FB4A-EL automatic transmission and the BJ utilizing the FN4A-EL automatic transmission. they also have different engines. you're better off going to a junkyard and pulling a auto trans from a third generation protege (1999-2003)...that would work. if you have any further questions, you can follow this link: www.protegefaq.net hope this helps!
