Book Excerpt: 1993-2001 Mazda 626, MX-6, Ford Probe Repair Manual
These models are available in two-door hatchback, coupe and four-door sedan body styles.
ENGINE ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS
The transversely mounted inline four cylinder or V6 engines used in these models are equipped with electronic fuel injection.
The engine drives the front wheels through either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transaxle via independent driveaxles.
Independent suspension, featuring MacPherson struts, is used on all four wheels. The power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering unit is mounted behind the engine.
The brakes are disc at the front and either disc or drum at the rear, with power assist standard. Some models are equipped with Anti-lock Braking Systems (ABS).
STARTER SOLENOID | REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
(Refer to illustrations 16.3 and 16.4)
- Disconnect the cable from the negative terminal of the battery.
CAUTION: The radio in your vehicle is equipped with an anti-theft system. Make sure you have the correct activation code before disconnecting the battery.
- Remove the starter motor (see Section 15).
- Disconnect the large wire from the solenoid to the starter motor terminal (see illustration).
- Remove the solenoid mounting screws and take the solenoid off the starter motor (see illustration 16.3 and the accompanying illustration).
- Installation is the reverse of removal. Be sure to apply a slight amount of grease to the solenoid lever and the plunger before installation.
POWER BRAKE BOOSTER | CHECK, REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
- Depress the pedal and start the engine. If the pedal goes down slightly, operation is normal.
- Depress the brake pedal several times with the engine running and make sure there is no change in the pedal reserve distance (the distance between the pedal and the floor).
AIR TIGHTNESS CHECK
- Start the engine and turn it off after one or two minutes. Depress the brake pedal several times slowly. If the pedal goes down farther the first time but gradually rises after the second or third depression, the booster is air-tight.
- Depress the brake pedal while the engine is running, then stop the engine with the pedal depressed. If there is no change in the pedal reserve travel after holding the pedal for 30 seconds, the booster is airtight.
