MAZDA 6 I GG GY Engine Oil Pan Gasket & Front Crank Seal

So I took my 6 wagon to the mazda dealer a while back for an oil change and I got a wonderful surprise when they said they managed to find out that a front crank seal and engine oil pan gasket are leaking. They quoted me at over 500 to fix these issues. Anybody know anything about these problems Are the repairs extremely complicated Should I attempt it myself or just suck it up and pay the 500 Thanks

MAZDA 6 I GG GY 4spd ATX tranny question

Hi I just acquired &3903 6i ATX. There issue with manual mode when this mode is switched then is no way to change gears - instant 1st gear. Is that failure of transmission or my car is simply without sport shift auto mode works well car production is dated on Feb 2003. please help.

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.

MAZDA 6 I GG GY Tranny fluid

Would putting in redline tranny fluid be better than the stock stuff that is in there now I was thinking about doing a TWM Stage 2 shifter and changing the fluid while i was down there. What kind of fluid is recommended and how much do i need Also slightly off subject but has anyone changed the gear oil in the rear Would that be beneficial to do too. I have about 57k miles on her now

MAZDA 6 I GG GY 8 Speed Manual transmission&33&33&33

WELL IS IT They are already creating 8 gear Automatics and Manumatics I say this because what could you do with 2 extra gears...don&39t you think 6 is enough

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

MAZDA 6 I GG GY Gearbox Problems

Hi I&39m wandering if anyone is experiencing problems with the gearbox on their 2.0D 143 (or other models) I have one that is 2 years old that I&39ve owned for 6 months. It now really grinds when changing gear particularly between 1st and 2nd although also into 3rd. I have taken it to my dealership to get checked out and they say that they can&39t find anything wrong and wouldn&39t expect to as it

MAZDA 6 I GG GY downshifting too fast

when im downshifting from say... 3rd to 2nd going about 45mph... and i let off the clutch considerably or totally off... if feels like the transmission slips... where after i get that drag feeling it then feels like it slipped and theres no more drag to it 1 is this normal 2 am i downshifting at too high of a speed etting off the clutch to fast 3 am i damaging the transmission when this happens 4

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

MAZDA 6 I GG GY Brake Fluid

Hi guys my wife just took my &3904 wagon in for servicing about 30k miles on it. The technician suggested changing the tranny fluid brake pads and rotors and the brake fluid saying it was a little grey. I about fell off my chair when she called. Do I have the right to be incredibly pissed off or is this a legit recommendation I want to know before I go and give the service manager an ear full I just can&39t see needing to change the brake fluid already

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

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Vito camper conversion v Mazda Bongo

Were considering getting a camper van like mazda Bongo but have a friend who is selling a Mercedes Vito diesel injection which were now considering. Wed be interested in any advice anyone has on the pros and cons of the two options. It has a fairly high mileage of 115000 but has full service history and has been owned by our friend since it was new using it as the van for his bricklaying business.

has attracted its own cult following a bit like an alternative to the VW. As soon as you say cult you know youll have to pay for it. 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. Having said that Ive often come across people complimenting me on choosing a 638

NISSAN hmm why discontinue the 6MT you ask...... (Its NOT discontinued BTW)

Makes you wonder why they would discontinue the 6MT. Hmmm..i have one and i love it...except for a couple things. Now im no mechanic by any means but ive driven sticks before and the gears on the V seem rough. I dunno i wish i could buy a sport shifter for it or something to make it a little smoother. ALSO in between 1 and 2nd gear if i leave it between gears it will make a horrible grinding noise

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. Ive driven plenty of smooth or better shifting gearboxes. 300ZX Legacy GT WRX New Sonata mazda6...

KIA SORENTO I JC A matter of relativity & reality

Ive owned a 98 Kia Sportage sine 2001 apart from a few annoying gremlins peculiar to the breed and the usual maintainence items it has been a good reliable car cheaply built yes ( but it was also cheap to purchase) but not cheapn nasty. To read some of the comments posted around the web about these cars particularly in the US you would think that each car comes complete with their own copy of Satan

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

KIA RIO III 2012 Rio SLS Manual - clutch engaging roughly

Quick one here. In the last few days our manual Rio has been getting temperamental about engaging for first gear (and sometimes second). I might note that im a seasoned manual driver smooth one at that so its not driver error. Youll be at a stand-still be in first take off with more than adequate rpm then right at the end of the engagement the clutch is completely off the floor itll pause for half

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
