How often change Mazda transmission fluid?

kolahhfjefjhlogbgbj With the price of a trany replacement ($2-3000) it's good maintenance. Every 50,000miles or 80k is a good rule of thumb. Check your owners manual if in doubt. When you get it done make sure its a total flush not just a pan removal & refill. There is about 40% of the fluid in the trany and the rest is in the torque converter lines & cooler. Dropping the pan only or sucking it out of the dipstick tube will not get all the fluid. A proper service consists of: 100% fluid removal & replacement New valve body filter & trany pan gasket Also suggested is to put in a good seal conditioner - Mazda may have something. Check around and make sure the people you are going to deal with actually do have a flushing machine. They are not that common and lots will tell you they will flush the trany but end up only droping the pan. Might be $150.00 - $240.00 to be done properly depending where you are.

How do you replace the headlight bulb located on a 1999 Mazda 626?

I followed the procedure for the 1998 model in an earlier post and it was exactly the same. Just remember to handle the new bulb by the base when installing to keep oil from fingers off of the glass. First I removed the two bolts that hold the intake in place. Then I moved the intake off to the side. Then you have to pull back the rubber hood from the light. After that I used a pair of pliers to unhook a clip that holds the bulb in the mount. Dudeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee you were right!!

For the right side you have to remove two screws and move the coolant reservoir via Phillips head screwdriver. You can reach the left side without removing anything. You will need plenty of lighting to see what you're doing.

How do you set up cam timing on a Mazda B2000?

Tools you will need: Flashlight ,ratchet,10mm, 14mm, 21mm Take off the top timing belt cover with a 10mm socket, take a look at the cam sprocket, it will have either 3 or 4 holes that align it to the dowel pin in the cam. If there are 3 holes make sure the pin is in "A", if there are 4 holes make sure the pin is in "1". Now that the belt and cam gear are visible, take your 21 mm socket place it on the crankshaft bolt and rotate the crankshaft clockwise until number (1) is lined up with that triangle just behind the cam gear at the top..!then take your flashlight and shine it down inside THE BOTTOM TIMING BELT COVER and see if the DASH that is marked on the crankshaft is also lined up with the line THAT STICKS OUT above it !!if it is YOUR TIMING IS ON you should then check your distributor and make sure that the rotor button under the distributor cap is pointing directly under number one plug wire,if not remove it and make sure it is when you put it back and your truck should run like a dream....After that you are on your way!

Where is located vehicle speed sensor on Mazda MX 6 1990?

I am not exactly sure on the 1990 model, but on 93-97 it is located on the transmission next to the firewall aprox 20 inches below the brake master cylinder. Remove the air cleaner, there is a diagonally positioned bracket w/ 2ea. 10mm bolts and a ground wire that must removed for access. It is held on by a 10mm bolt which is easily removed with a 24" extension and 10mm socket. The VSS is difficult to see and will need to be rotated w/ tools and a wire lasso to provide vertical lift. The removal process can take several hours and a great deal of patience.

What could make a 1994 Mazda MX6 backfire?

Adjust the timing. Backfiring is usually a sign that the car needs a tune up. The timing can be a big factor. Check the timing belt to see if it has jumped a tooth or two. If so, this is the reason why it would backfire. You also might want to check the tension pulleys to see if they are too tight or not tight enough.

How do you know if your Mazda 6 is a 4 cylinder or 6-cylinder?

There is nothing you can learn about the clutch by just looking under the hood. The clutch is inside the bell housing--you can't see inside the bell housing by just opening the hood. You would have to separate the transmission from the motor to see inside the bell housing, unless it has an inspection port!

How do you unlock the anti-theft system in a 1993 Mazda MX-6?

so far the only answer is to pay the dearler $35 dollars and wait 45 min. while they clear the memory of the radio. Personally, that sounds like unpluging something until the memory is erased, but as to what I am not sure.

There is a magic code for 93' models only (each year has own code), "0532" and you enter it in during the following sequence.

1 disconnect power for at least 30 sec. 2 put key in ign. and turn to aux. power or whatever setting allows the radio to play. 3. if locked out you see Err. on the screen. 4. press Scan key 5. press am/fm key 6. press Auto M key 7 press Tune up arrow 8. Enter code 0532 9. press Scan and Auto M keys same time until radio restores (5-10 sec)

What is the 0-60 mph time on a 1989 Mazda MX6?

3.6 seconds is the 0-60 time duration.

The Turbo twin cam 2.2 intercooled would do 0 to 60 in 7.1 according to most test,and with a really good pro driver could do it in 6.8 . With a bigger intercooler and turning the boost up another 6 pounds (or chip the computer) they have the possibility of getting into the very high 5.5 or higher range. They have potential with a larger turbo and larger intercooler and open up the exhaust exhaust. The non turbo models are slower, but the V-6 models will run right at the 7.1 range when they became installed in them. Of course the new ones are even faster now, but a used turbo MX 6 is cheap to modify, cheap to buy compared to newer ones and get your fast ET times that would be a big surprise to anyone around thinking it was a stock looking car from the outside. Just would recommend installing a new good headgasket before doing any mods and depending on the miles on it.... Plus the RX-7 Gen 2 turbo looks like a direct bolt in (Minor Mods needed) and it flows more air.

How do you change drive axles on 1994 Mazda MX-6?

mine is a 95 mx-6 but it should be the same thing. first obveously take off the tires. then the brakes then dis assemble the a frame to make i easier to take out the half shafts. there are 2 one is directly plugged into the transmission and one has an extention shaft (passenger side) after everything is open take out the retaining bolt for the half shaft. then you should be able to pull it directly out. it may need some prying but should be fairly eaisy if not get underneath and gently pry with a claw tool to pop it free. be careful though when you take the one out of the tranny on the drivers side. the tranny will puke fluid if its not totaily drained wich on that model is almost impossible. then just replace the seals when you put in the new ones and that's about it.. also use cation when disasembling the a frame since theres a gas shock there. just take enugh apart to be able to get out the half shafts..

How do you replace the front turn signal bulb located on a 1996 Mazda MX-6?

This is actually a little tricky, open the hood, there will be a single screw holding the turn signal lamp in place take that off, here's the tricky part, take two flathead screwdrivers and place them on either side of the turn signal housing pry it back and forth a little bit, it should begin to slide out directly in front of the car, it has tracks kind of like a dresser drawer, when you done replacing the light, just slide it back in and tighten the screw
