I suspect the chassis was damaged by the tree falling. Take it to a Mazda main agent for assessment.

This is not easy to do .If you don't have the tools and at least some experience with torque the correct gaskets and sealant's your going to be wasting your time it will leak worse the if dose now
It will take hours to clean the matting surfaces with razor blades and denatured alcohol weather cork or rubber gaskets .
Its a 2002 vehicle it has to be clean for it to seal .Then it needs to be torqued in sequance
It can be done but do some home work be for you you start

By default, your automatic transmission has a torque converter that is the main focus to your car\truck changing gears. I had one break on me in a Nissan Sentra and was glad I was close to where I was going because I would have otherwise been stranded.

If you live in a mountainous area and do a lot of traveling going up and down hills, your best bet, as long as you are above 58 mph(like going thru Denver on Interstate 70 and going west thru the Rockies, then it is okay to leave the overdrive on. I would, however, recommend that going up an incline of more than 30* then you may want to turn it off until you have reached a sustainable speed. If you are towing more than 800 lbs on a trailer on an incline of more than 20* then you would want to turn the overdrive off as the torque converter putting your vehicle into overdrive with a heavy load can cause the converter to snap within the transmission and you would be dead in the water.

If you live in a more plain-like state then the only time you really NEED to turn off the overdrive is if you are hauling a large amount of cargo any real distance or rarely get over 4300 rpm due to such short traveling distances. Overdrive function is primarily used to cut down on the amount of fuel needed in order to take long journey on Interstate or State highways that allow for speeds faster than 55 mph.
Hope this helps.

could be fuel filter clogging up... fuel pump, or bad alternator going out...

Could be as simple as a thermostat, or it could water pump going out. any water or antifreeze on the ground? Does your heater inside work?

Also check your fan relays, they're located on the left side by the washer fluid in a rectangle black box. If your check engine light isn't on, leave be, they're ok..
