is this a 2.5 or a 2.3 supercharged engine. On most 2.5 there is a bleeder that is near the base of the thermostate housing. Similar for the 2.3. I am basing this that there werent many changes from the 96 model. before adding coolant , open the bleeder screw. it looks like that of a bleeder screw on brake calipers. Begin to fill the radiator/engine with coolant.you may hear an air fizzle noise that's the air escaping the engine as you put coolant in. No worries. When you start seeing coolant dribble a bit out of the bleeder screw close it and continue to fill the radiator until full. put on the radiator cap. Fill the coolant resevior jug about an inch past the full line. Start the car and run it to operating temperatures, ../until the radiator fans come on, monitor the coolant temp gauge inside the car. after this is done stop the car and let sit for 5to 10 minutes, If there is any air left it will escape to the coolant resevior jug and it will pull in what little needed coolant in in place of the air. Check the resevior level. if it has gone down a little no need to open the cap to check.
did you make this up? the radiator for BOTH 2.5 and 2.3 is the same. the drain is on the passenger side, there is an access port in the lower splash shield, small hole about 15mm. using a Phillips with a large head, unscrew the drain plug. if you cannot find this drain, then you can remove the front splash shield, and then you will slap yourself in the head because now you can see it was there all the time, and you just spent a lot of time and effort that you didnt have to. if you drain it from the tstat hsg, you will leave a lot of coolant in there
how to replace a 1998 Mazda millenia alternator
i have the same problem with my Mazda millenia 2001
Low coolant? Bad thermostat? Heater core plugged or restricted? System airbound? Water pump not circulating coolant? Defective radiator cap?
Ask its owner for the key.
To bleed the coolant system on a 1998 VW Beetle, remove the top from the overflow tank. Run the car for 10 to 15 minutes to force any air out of the system, then check the coolant level. Add coolant as needed.
pretty sure its under the passenger side head light
most likely in side the transmission pan
Start by taking the top off of the coolant overflow reservoir. To bleed the system, run the 1998 VW 2.0 Beetle about 10 minutes, then check the coolant level. Add coolant if needed, then replace the reservoir top.

Not sure what you are asking. It is a fairly easy removal and replacment with common tools and can be done in your garage.

Tap on your 1998 Mazda brake rotors with a hammer or mallet until they become loose. The brake rotors will simply slide off.
Low coolant? System airbound and needs to be purged? Water pump not circulating coolant? Heater control valve? This happens to me on my 99 at the start of each winter. the damper "Sticks" in the shut position but eventually starts to working again after fiddling the climate control temp settings.
Disconnect battery cable for about 3 minutes than reconnect.
My book (Mazda Owner's Manual) says 4 liters/4.2 quarts, for a 2.5L Millenia, with a filter. The book also states that it is 3.7 liters/3.9 quarts w/o filter. The 2.3L Millenia is 4.1 lit/4.3 qt w/filter, and 3.8 lit/4 qts w/o filter. >>>>From page 9-4 of the manual which was supplied with the car.
did u bleed the coolant system of air cuz that could be the reason
I have a 1997 Mazda millenia with the dist of a 626 the order is 1-2-3-5-4-6, counter clockwise. This should be the same for yours. 1-2-3-4-5-6
There is only valve to bleed coolant and not air. If you want to bleed air of the system, you need to park the car on incline of 10-15 degrees (front ahead) and run the engine for some time. It will work out all air.
how do i troubleshoot my 1998 Mazda 626 distributerless no spark
should be in engine compartment., mine is by driver side at top against fender wall in a black plastic cover box
Start by checking the transmission fluid level. If this is good then replace the transmission fluid and filter. If it continues it needs transmission work.
its the gas pump
