It's basically the cost of buying another car with the same motor and a manual transmission, buying some of the wear items new/rebuilt (clutch, pressure plate, axles, etc), and the time to swap out all the applicable parts (transmission, ECU's, pedals, shifter, linkages, etc), and scrap the rest of the other car.
You'd be better off finding another car with your motor and a manual transmission, buy it, and sell your car. If you do it right, you could break even or make a couple bucks.
The front pipe of the exhaust after the manifold and before the cat has a crack in it. I've been trying to find a replacement and am having no luck. I'm curious if you guys know where to find a front pipe for a 1991 626 2.2 n/a?
Okay, my name is Ty'Eira Marie Morrison Osteen, I'm from Asheville, NC. Kinda new to the Mazda game, a very interesting departure from my GM N-Body love, but I've always had a thing for the entire Capella/626/Telstar/MX-6/Probe lineup, plus the 323/Familia/Protégé/Escort/Tracer/Laser lineup as well. I'm just glad my first endeavor in the Mazda world involved a GE chassis Hunter Green Mica 626 ES-V6 with 188k on the clock. I'm growing to love this car by the minute (seeing as I just got it Friday), but the one thing I hate about this car is the fact that the Euro bodykit is nonexistent, and will forever be just a sad crushed dream. But otherwise, here's Old Six:
Not checked inside transmission yet as I was hoping for an easier solution.
Looks like I will have to check filter first and if not it, change the transmission.
To people out there it might sound strange that the slipping became worse when cornering left but it definitely did.
Oil nice and pink and not burnt.
Thanks for your input.
Likely its dead. How was the oil and filter before it died? Could be the pump, valve body. Auto's don't like getting hot especially with contaminated/old fluid and filters in them. Best to use the one from the spare car if it is good.
Yes, I can find the rear shocks no problem, but the fronts... Nobody in my backwater country seems to make them or even have a part # for them... It's exceedingly weird.
Time to ply eBay for NOS!
Will either of these work?
They say they're compatible, but I'd rather consult the guru on these matters before I do something dumb like buy them...
If not, I'm buying from a much more enlightened land... like Australia. I just don't want to pay loads in shipping if I don't have to.
