Is there any known problem with the Mazda protege 2002 5 door transmission or controls thereof. There always seemed to be a problem with the overdrive light coming off and on out of nowhere.
Now, while driving, the tranny went out completely, on a 5 year old car, well maintained, with 25K miles.
Any history on this? thanks.
There are no reports of any major transmission issues. I think you have just gotten extremely unlucky. In a car with only 25,000 miles that should not be happened. If you need to take it to a specialist I have always had a pleasant experience with Aamco Transmission Specialists. I may be mistaken but I think they will do a diagnostic check for free. Good luck.
i have the same problem with my 01 protege except the tran hasnt gone on me yet ... But i have been reading alot of articules on the O/D light and it comes down to a solenoid electric problem thanks to ford.
