I have been helping a co worker fix his vehicle. It is a 99 Mazda Protege, 4 cylinder. He told me it had been stalling infrequently, and when it did, he could turn it over and over, but it would not start. After letting it sit for 30 minutes to an hour, it would then start and run again only to do it again after a couple of hrs or after a few days. It would happen just after a few blocks, or after a few hrs, but not everytime it was used. The check engine light did come on, but the code was erased after the battery went dead. I have gotten the egr code, and cleaned it our with all of the hoses attached to it. I have not been able to cause the car to die on me yet. Do you have any ideas?
have the same problem?
