  3. actually you dont. swapping things dont make you a mechanic. what i was telling FIS was basic mechanics 101 if you were such a mechanic you would have known this like i said i have been working on cars my whole life in my spare time: mazdas, fords, holdens & chevy, nissans and datsuns, toyotas, bmw and mercedes benz. working on one type of car has made you one eyed. plus i have had more cars than birthday candles...
  4. @DanTheBritshMan thanks! I appreciate it, greetings from Mexico. 🙋

  5. Lol

  6. RT @SuccessfulFarm: Columnist Jerry Nelson knows how tough it is to navigate the widespread red vs. green tractor rivalry:…

  7. See how I already pointed that out? How the hell would you know if you have a "complicated issue" or not when you haven't eliminated anything for being broken? If you have been working on Mazda's for 20 years I'd imagine your mechanical skills would be much higher. And swapping out from a 1.8l FP engine to a 2.5l KL isn't something that requires knowledge man, you even had a donor car to grab the parts from, it's basically just "remove old part, move new part from dono car and tighten" Requires a ton of skills man! I'm sorry but if you don't have some more skillshowing and relevant posts I would like to ask you to stop replying to this topic, I'm trying to fix my car, not argue.
  8. By the way, i'm working on mazda's for over 20 years. recently did a compleet rebuild of my 626. Went from a 1,8L-16V to a 2,5-24V. From non ABS to ABS on the car. Factory cruise control, so i think i do know what i'm saying.
  9. You can't see the signal with a multimeter, the fact that you measure a resistance, doesn't mean your crack sensor gives a good output signal. How do i know, been there done that!! In general it works like that yes, but if i have a complicated issue, and the simple things are not the problem. I'm starting at the beginning and follow the signal, untill i lose it. Better than just swapping a distributer because it's most likely. Maybe it's takes some more time, but i want to rule out everything else.
  10. RT @lilgoat8: Man the funniest stuff be on facebook 😂😂

  11. Last week
  12. Exactly! And it's usualy the simpliest thing to cause the fault, which is why you start at the end (Plugs->Wires->Coil->And so on)
  13. talk to the demaj brothers. they have been putting v8s into old mazdas for years.
  14. yes marcel i find your lack of mechanical skill showing. i said what i did because: tracking down electrical gremlins is a process of elimination, you eliminate the things it isnt to get to the thing it is. i have been around cars my whole life this isnt the first or last car ive worked on.
  15. The music you loved growing up is back w/ DJ Awesome Sarah on @AshevilleFM Yay DJ, Listen to latest now!…

  17. White smoke, blown headgasket? Kinda hard to tell just based of a video.
  18. He has some aftermarket parts, but that's all I can think of atm.
  19. First of yes I can messure the crank sensor with a multimeter, but I can't test it without an oscilloscope. You're also saying that gooseboy78's statement where he says to work my way backwards isn't the best solution but instead claim to be working from the ignition switch through every ignition part instead is a better option? And then tell me to remove the HEI module which I've already claimed to be OK and not the problem due to my backwards testing just like gooseboy78 said. Sorry man but I find your experience to be missing some practical testing.
  20. I'd do it for $7,500

  21. If i where you, i get rid of the hei module and place a original distributer, and start trouble shooting from there. Only then you have the right information. When everything is up and running again, you can start thinking about that hei module again.
  22. If your trouble shooting, your starting at the beginning and not the end. If the problem is in ignition switch for example, your sparkplugs won't work either, as well as your distributor.
  23. You can't measure a cranck/cam sensor with a multimeter. You have to check the output signal with a scope!
  24. @kinkypaddycakes vouching for littlekeygan

  25. Messured the crank sensor while cranking, got 496-505 ohm (messured with a digital multimeter) so I'm thinking the crank sensor is bad, ordering a new OEM one.
  26. Can someone help me figure out whats going on IMG_0540.MOV
  27. The Ultimate Twang #Blog has another classic album for you to remember! #ClayWalker classic from 1995!…
