Both models were available with a 5-speed manual or an ATX. Depending on the model year the 6i auto was 4 or 5 speed the 6s auto was 5 or 6 speed.

As I understand it not having driven the mazda 4spd auto but having tried a few others the shift on the 4spd is in fact not a shift as such but a gear limiter - ie setting it to 3 rather than D simply means it won&39t use 4th. Mainly used for extra engine braking down hills or to force the engine to rev past the normal shift point. Then again this is just from conjecture based on similar gearboxes as I say I&39ve only seen the 5spd auto we have fitted to the 2.3i over here.

Yes most trucks are far past 8 gears I&39ve seen some that have 12. The only problem is the transmission is pretty big and won&39t fit in any modern car. The best transmission that I can think of is the CVT since it can be designed to always be at the best gear ratio for the engines power band and fuel economy. I think people will always have a thing for the manual transmission but I think they will have sequential transmissions in 6 gears and do away with the standard H pattern gearboxes.
I think the 6-speed will be about the limit since any more may help in fuel economy but shifting 6 times (or more) just to get to highway speeds won&39t appeal to most MTX drivers. The 7- or 8-speed ATX may become more commonplace. It&39ll help to better acceleration and fuel economy for ATX models since in general they suffer from more drivetrain loss than MTX. The sequential-manuals and all the new
Double clutching is generally unneccessary in modern gearboxes. If the gears were straight tooth cut then you&39d need to do it. The only time you really should double clutch is racing because after doing so you upset the chassis less (that and you are at really high RPM for a sustained amount of time which produces heat and lots of wear) Rev matching and double clutching are separate. You should match
You shouldn&39t accuse someone of something when you&39ve never done it yourself. Our fuel system service is something way more than dumping something in the tank. Go ahead and buy the 6 stuff to pour in. That is a billion dollar industry that does nothing. We actually go through the schrader valve on the fuel rail clean the throttle body chemically and put something in the tank. Read up on some technical
Quote Read up on some technical service manuals and you&39ll find brake fluid oxidizes and breaks down. Ask anyone who races about brake fluid.[b] Last time I checked there&39s a BIG difference between driving a race car on a track and driving to and from work 5-6 days a week. Brake fluid may be an issue in race cars since the brakes are severely abused from race to race but if your brake fluid is

But if you want to enjoy the van for a couple of years and sell it you have more chance of getting your money back if its a VW or a bongo simply because theres more of a market for them.

Doing everything as quick as you can is the hallmark of a drag racer. Quote » Those of you who like it have obviously never driven a truly smooth gearbox. Wait maybe I should qualify that. Maybe you have driven better-shifting transaxles but youre not expecting as much from the V since its an econobox.

Oh yes and people did not hesitate to buy Ford Festivas in this country just earlier versions of the Kia Rio. All of Hyundais and Kias earlier engines have been based on some one elses time proven design usually mazda or Mitsubishi people should be thankful they are getting a design that a major manufacturer has already worked most of the bugs out of. This process allows a smaller manufacturer to provide
I have never replaced or repaired a transmission in any of my vehicles. This includes 4 Nissans as well as other vehicles Ive cared for... mazdas and Hondas. Most of these vehicles (except the Rogue) were driven in excess of 150000mi (250000km). My Rogue now has 40000mi (67000km). I guess the issue of not being able to service a CVT transmission depends on whether you ever think youll wear it out or
the torque converter the manual has a direct connection to the flywheel with no slush-box sapping away the power and directness at its discretion. Im comfortable with manual and auto. There were very few autos around when I started driving. The first auto I drove was an EJ Holden if that gives you a clue. Also borrowed a HR 2-speed auto at one stage.

I had a 86 mazda RX7.....My year took 8090 in the 5 speed but the later years took ATF. I was told there was no difference in trannys except the for the oil spec. Gears are just flopping around at idle and can clatter in some gearboxes. Pushing the clutch in stops the gears from turning and pushing on the stick shift pushes against the synchromesh and slows the gears. (not recommended) Sounds like
