start with plugs and wires, ive seen this many times. not worth taking to the dealer when its a simple fix. always factory plugs and wires.

AnswerHi, My Mazda did the same thing and i took mine to a mechanic and all it was, was it needed a new petrol filter and now everything is ok with it

Screwed into the side of the power steering pump.

This year Mazda protege does not have a serpentine belt. It has two belts, one for the alternator/water pump, and the other for the power steering and a/c.

Right on the power steering pump. pointing to the front of the car.

first install a boost gauge, make sure your turbos are in working order. they should make a 10-8-10 psi pattern from 2500 rpm to redline

Remove the power steering belt first then the alternator belt will go on.

i need to change my alternator belt and don't know where the tension wheel is so i can take off the other belt to replace the alternator belt on my 94 Mazda protege 1.6l

User Avatar

need some more information my friend The power window motors on a Protege are non-repairable items. Make sure the switches, fuses, and such are in good order before replacing the motor.

You disconnect the power and ground and take the old battery out n put in a new one.

This applies to a 2003 Mazda Protege: It depends on what type of engine you have. For the 1.6L engine, the oil dipstick is the front-passenger side area, close to the power steering reservoir. For the 2.0L engine, the dipstick is on the same side but towards the back, close to the wheel.

Brake system, low lubricants, excessive wear and tear of power steering system, for starters.

The Pulley is slipping forward during pump engagement and tightening the belt to breaking point. Tighten or replace bolts holding power steering pump to the bracket. I have been hearing a pulley that sounded loose or like it was gonna fail and have been waiting on the serpentine belt to break on 1996 Mazda protege. Will I feel that the pulley is slipping?

Check battery Check battery cables for corrosion or looseness Check fusable link

Contaminated fuel (water) or a dirty fuel filter could be possibilities.

There are a few ways you can tell if you have a bad fuel pump. These are is the engine sputters at high speeds, vehicle loses power while accelerating, or the engine will not start.

User Avatar

Loss of power when accelerating can be caused by a number of things. A leak in the fuel line or even a bad alternator can cause this.

if you don't know how to do it, hire someone who does. this can be a dangerous procedure, if there is power to the air bag when it is disconnected, it will discharge, it has been know to break unsuspecting necks.

If a car shakes and loses power when idling it can be the spark plug. If a spark plug is fouling, it can cause power losses.
