Question about 1993 Mazda Protege
Posted by Anonymous on
to take out your drive shafts you first need to drain oil from gearbox.plug is on the bottom of box.when this is done remove wheels..take off your disc caliper (2 bolts).tie them up out of way.remove disc rotor(should just slide off).then you need to remove split pins from your steering rack(tierod).. 2 bolts where the part bolts to the strut.next is at base (lower control arm).you will see a bolt and nut(this will be tight to get out use a soft punch like copper or brass shaft to knock bolt out.dont damage thread).to replace this you have to make sure it sits in the right place or you will damage thread when you fit the bolt...when all this is done the hard part comes.the drive shaft is very tight in the gearbox due to a spring type circlip on the axle shaft.you have to wrench the shaft towards you to free it .some times you may have to get a very solid big flat screwdriver in between the gearbox and shaft to loosen past the clip.when it is free ,just slide out.when you have done what you need to do.assembly is just reversing whatyou have just done . to fill gearbox up you have to take out the speedo cable and speedo drive from the gearbox (at back off motor,1 little bolt).top up .you have a mark on the drive to tell you the level.hope this helps (have fun)

open your bonnet check to see @ gearbox if the-res is cable, or a cylinder, the cable is Usualy visible on the top of the gearbox if theres a cable theres no clutch flu-ed needed. Note that your gearbox uses oil. Usualy on older models like 1989 the use a clutch cable no flu-ed needed

very possible green fluid is most likely antifreeze,and may have ran hot due to leaking or could've possibly got into a sensor plug and slightly shorted it and caused the light. first thing find water leak,and before starting repairs,have it hooked up to a diagnostic machine to read the codes that caused the engine light to come on.then start repairs..hope i helped

They are not related so much as if you have anti-freeze leaking out from underneath your car and you still drive it without putting water back into. There are many things that may be going wrong. You may have a ceazed up water pump which would be causing fluid to leak around the hose or you may have a cracked hose. Either way your car would be overheating. You may also have a leak from the radiator.
But for the most part no the check engine light will be a faulty sensor or valve. Hope it helps. Get that car checked out and have a happy 4th.
