    Cam and Crank

    I don't know what you mean by mag type. They are electrical, so electro magnetism is involved.....but they are VR (variable reluctance) sensors. The pre '98 models used hall effect sensors inside the distributors, and VR sensors on the crank.

    01' 626 V6 Manual 2.5L Burning Out Starters, Need Advice

    I doubt they've been waiting for over 4 years for a reply...

    V6 Non-interference

    Having owned several ZE's, I can tell you a stock ZE is definitely non-intereference. Perhaps the motor you had problems with had modified cams (i.e. increased lift)?

    Multiple Organ Failure

    You sure your crank pulley hasn't simply separated? This could cause all kinds of problems as well.

    Just used this, an extra 5% off is nice! Also, they have a really good deal on oil filters for our cars. Genuine motorcraft filters (look under the KL V6 model, those also fit the 4 cyl but are bigger and can trap more dirt), genuine Denso filters, and Wix (rebranded) filters for dirt cheap. I think I paid < $2 a piece for a few filters.

    FS KL Gasket sets, fuel sender, cheap

    Bumpety bump.
  9. AST or air separator tank. Last time I replaced mine, which was about five years ago, it was around $75 at the dealer.

    FS KL Gasket sets, fuel sender, cheap

    Also for sale is the fuel tank sending unit, complete with misc. hardware and hoses, tank gasket, fuel pump mount, and wiring. I believe this is from a '93 MX-6, but I don't know for certain. It may very well be identical in many Mazdas, I don't know off-hand. Was a clean Florida car, and there is no rust. I hate to throw it away, but shipping isn't free either. $30 shipped by itself, or I can include it to whomever buys the gasket set for an additional $5. If someone buys all of this, I will throw in a few random goodies I still have laying around for free. I have an eBay polished AFPR (adjustable fuel pressure regulator), worked great but the pressure gauge failed (leaks internally) and needs to be replaced (you could also just cap the port after you've set your fuel pressure). I also saw a front swaybar bushing bracket. If I find any more Mazda parts I have no use for (the only Mazda I have left is the 2.0L FS Protege5) I'll throw them in as well. You guys will probably cry to hear that I scrapped a perfectly good V6 manual transmission with only 100k miles for a measly $15 the last time I had to clean out my garage (I was moving, didn't have time to find a buyer). Don't let good parts go to waste! Paypal or check accepted (but you will have to wait for the check to clear before I ship anything).
  12. I have two Eristic gasket sets for the 2.5L. One set is complete, with MLS head gaskets, square runner intake gaskets, exhaust gaskets, valve cover gaskets and grommets, and what looks to be a thermostat housing gasket. It also has the front and rear main oil seals, the upper and lower oil pan/block gaskets, and a bunch of other engine gaskets. The other kit has MLS head gaskets, exhaust gaskets, and just the front valve cover gasket, and a few misc o-rings. One complete kit costs over $100, check around for yourself. Should work for 93-02 V6 models, including the 626, MX6, and Millenia, although the intake gaskets are specific to square runner manifolds. I will take $80 shipped for all of it.

    Is The KLZE Compatible With The 2.0 I4 MTX

    While the internals of the 2L and 2.5L mtx are compatible, the bellhousing between the two is different. You will need to get a transmission out of a 2.5, and probably axles...the v6 axles are thicker to handle more torque.

    Shifting/gauge problems

    The speed sensor is a big clue. Of rf the computer is getting faulty readings about how fast it thinks the car is moving it may shift into the wrong gear unexpectedly.

    Timing Belt Replacement

    Rattles over small bumps are almost always worn sway bar bushings. Bummer about the gf.
