I want to replace the engine in my 1.6L 1999 KN Lxi Ford Laser (Mazda 323) with a 1.6L 2001 KQ Lxi Ford Laser. Both 4 door sedans with 5 speed manual transmission. My brother is coming down to swap the motors over, but hasn't done a fuel injected motor before. What does he need to know when replacing the motor on a fuel injected car, in comparison to a motor that doesn't have fuel injection? He has replaced many motors that weren't fuel injected.
1999 astina auto hback starts fine in the morning and runs smoothly, no problems. When engine heats up car cut off while driving and hard to restart. After few minutes later, it starts fine again like no problems. persistent pattern. Replaced had fuel injectors cleaned out, spark plugs. air filter, fuel pump complete, vacuum set complete, maybe the computer too (mechanic said)and the crank sensor. The crank senor was replaced and it run ok for a while and then the same problem happened again. Can some help me? mechanic do all the above. Crank sensor suggested by auto electrician.
sounds like not enough fuel getting through fuel line for engine to operate.have you replaced fuel filter?the symptoms you describe could be caused by a partially blocked fuel filter
Yes, replaced complete fuel assembly. When replaced, car was not running smooth, auto electrician rechecked and found #1 fuel injector pin bended in connector. straighten connector and all good sound in engine. Engine cuts off while driving if for more than 45 minutes. Auto electrician suggested crank sensor. Replaced crank sensor but no change. hard to start when it stops. If you wait for about 15 mins and try again it will start with any problem and run smoothly again.
Hey guys mines a 2003 protege..
I lose power cars still running but flat stick ahes got nuthing then randomly she will kick back into full power.
New plugs and 2 new leads, new air filter, new intank fuel filter and im atarting to run out of solutions...can anyone help please!!!
I'm guessing it's an automatic? If so, have the transmission inspected by an auto transmission specialist. I had a car that would randomly get stuck in 3rd gear because a wire was faulty - in 3rd gear at low speeds it's like there's no power at all, you can have your pedal on the floor and it will crawl.
The transmission guy attached a scanner to the engine that told him the problem very quickly and it was a quick fix.
That's my only suggestion unfortunately!
I need to replace the battery in my Mazda 323 2002, just wondering if the battery can be replaced as normally or do we have to set the computer system in the car? I also own a Ford Territory 2005 and had to go to several places to have the car computer system reset due to replacement of the car battery.
My front and rear windscreen wanders have stopped working, although wipers still work and switch seems fine. It's not a blockage because motors do not attempt to run. I assume fuse but cannot find a diagram to tell me which fuse, what amps, what kind, and how to find it.
Can anyone help?
I have a 1999 Mazda 323 Astina BJ HBK 1.6l hatchback.
Get a test light and check every one for power! If they're all good then find the motor at the bottom of the bottle, check the connector and pins for security and corrosion, if they're all good then check power at the connector. If your light illuminates on one wire and not the other you have an open circuit motor, sometime caused by burning it out because of a blockage!
Inductors are not flashing, how to repair?
How many kilometers on average mazda 323 astina hatchback runs after appearing--

2. red light of fuel level indicator?
Has anyone with a Mazda 323 protege 2003 had any gear box problems?
Does the late 2001 early 2002 mazda 323 protege shades have front and back airbag sensors and accelerometer?
My wife was in a car accident and the airbags didn't deploy.
Not sure though it depends how fast someone is going / really they should have deployed especially if it was over 25 kilometres an hour / perhaps you should try taking the car to a Mazda Australia workshop to have them look at the car or if the car was totalled you could even try taking Mazda Australia to court if the air bags didn't deploy if they were supposed to
Technically airbags have a lifespan of 10 years then are supposed to be renewed, so no manufacturer will guarantee an airbag will deploy reliably in an old model.
You'll be surprised to know that cars are prepped for crash tests and their airbags always deploy.
In real life, airbags often fail to deploy because the sensors and there's only a handful of them, didn't get hit, or the central airbag module didn't get punctured by the ball bearing.
Even then, many drivers suffer broken ribs from the seat belts...
Best thing is to wear a helmet and race harness.
And don't believe the 5 star bull... and the apparently non racist Chinese car bashers. A 3 star Great Wall will come off better than a 5 star Suzuki Alto in almost any imaginable accident.
I am looking at a 2002 Mazda Shades Protege. I'm just wondering if anyone can tell me if they only have a drivers side airbag or a passenger airbag as too. I'm getting different answers when searching on the internet. Thanks
