Mazda Protege 5, 2002, 200K

Asked by Jan 22, 2017 at 11:38 AM about the 2002 Mazda Protege DX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My check engine light just came on and the motor seems a bit down on
power. When I run it high it seems to kick up at some point. But a nasty smell
came out (like rotten eggs) and the engine light blinks.

With the engine in idle I noticed the motor is okay until I turn on the A/C, then
the car starts checking badly. What can be and how costly the repairs may


1 Answer


Scan the car for the codes since the CEL is on. That will help you and us determine what the issue is. Your local auto parts store can do this for free, post the 4 digit codes back here.
