  1. Where is this place on the 2nd pic and how high?
  2. If you use a regular bolt, it would block the flow going through the PS pump. A banjo bolt has a hole on the side and that hole runs to the bottom hole of that bolt thus allowing fluid flow to bypass through the bolt and into the pipe as it's designed. I'm not an expert in everything inside a PS pump so I don't know the damage it could do without the banjo bolt but I'm sure it will cause premature failure down the road. If you're going to temporally put a regular bolt in until you find the correct one, make sure you buy another pair of copper washers since they can only be used once. Again I am not sure what happens once you put the regular bolt in and start the car and drive it.
  3. Sorry for the VERY late reply as you might have already addressed this issue already. I did not have notification or "followed" this post. If you have validated that the part numbers are different between model years, I recommend grabbing any 93-97 Mazda 626 or probe and just pull the sensors off of them and swap it out with yours. However, if you live in a heavily salted region, good luck trying to get that off without damaging it. But yes you are correct.
  4. Ford probe, there's probably a lot of those laying around. Not sure if engine size matters in power steering pump bolt size.
  5. Those are called Banjo Bolts, with the hole that goes through it just like brake lines do. I have not removed one myself on these cars to know the dimensions and thread size, but what I suggest is ask the dealership if they have the bolt available to order, or ask a auto parts store if they have a kit full of aftermarket banjo bolts available, or go to junkyard and pull one out yourself. Or find it on every hidden spot around your engine bay, it will eventually show up somewhere where you can't see it, use a mirror and light.
  6. If you do a little bit of research on google, every single image on there will show you what and/or where the wheel speed sensors are located. They are generally identical across all other brands of vehicles and has not changed for decades.
  7. I think you can only get those at the junkyard, not sure you'll find it at the auto parts store or maybe even the dealer.
  8. No idea what you mean by motor boat sound. It could be an exhaust leak and the vibration could also be a blocked catalytic converter causing back pressure. Could be anything from lack of maintenance to worn motor mounts. Need more data and inspections/tests. You can try starting a go fund me page and hope someone pitch in to buy you a car to go to work.
  9. You can try checking the clutch master slave cylinder to see if the plunger and clutch fork moves in and out properly.
  10. I don't have the diagram to 1990 626 but diagnosing sprayer malfunction is generally the same across almost all brands/make. Easiest step is to check your washer sprayer tubes first for any clogged debris lodged inside to isolate the cause of the washer not working. You could do this by disconnecting section of the tubes starting from closest to the sprayer and turn on the sprayer to see if washer solvents comes out of it. If you are certain no fluids come out of any washer tubes as you trace the tube down, then you can go inspect the washer pump. All washer pumps are typically located on the side of the washer reservoir.
  11. P:0421 Warm Up Catalyst Efficiency Below Threshold Most likely you need a new catalytic converter replaced. You may also want to consider what killed the converter in the first place, maybe it had a engine misfire or leaking engine oil/coolant into inside the exhaust system clogging up the cat recently. Which causes the Cat to die even with those issues that were fixed already. Depending on how busy the shop you're bringing it to and the availability of local parts, it may take longer then Monday to get it repaired since shops are typically closed on Sundays.
  12. 2017 AWD Mazda 6s are available in other countries outside the US. Its not a Mazdaspeed6. Reprogramming procedure after replacing the I-Eloop battery shouldn't be difficult, no special tools needed and is DIY. Its only a few steps and its needed to be done to reset the charge/discharge flow count limit that if exceeds the operating specification limit, a DTC would trigger. If it hasn't been triggered, you could still get away with just throwing in the new I-Eloop battery and drive off. Toyota in the news articles seems to be developing Solid state batteries instead of liquid base in order to charge faster, similar to capacitors I guess. BMW is also working on it too. I bet its a lot better for the environment.
  13. I talked to my salesman and he tells me the diesel is coming to the US as well as the AWD Mazda 6. Still holding out on that. All the newest refreshed cx5 now have a wide fuel door configuration meant for the future diesel motors to be put in on later date models. That wider door is to make room for the extra filler port to pour in the diesel fuel treatment I assume. I don't fancy the I-eloop regenerative braking feature in the car where the capacitor charges instantaneously and then transfers it into the battery just to save 1 mpg city driving, useless in stop and go bumper to bumper traffic. The special battery alone costs $400 to replace. They look visually identical to regular leaded batteries but much denser. They have to manufacture it from the plant per order due to its short shelf life of 12 months. These I-eloop batteries lasts no longer then regular leaded batteries which typically lasts an average of 36-45k miles or less before needing replacement on mazdas. You cannot replace these with regular battery or i-eloop malfunction lights flashes in the car at the same time killing the new battery. Mazda extended their 1year/12k battery warranty to 3years/36k just for the issue of replacing expensive i-eloop batteries sooner then expected from angry customers. I wonder how Toyota is going to come up with a battery that charges as fast as filling up the gas. Must be something to do with capacitors, but they don't hold charge for long and they discharge very fast. I know mazda is laughing at VW about their diesel mpg scandal. I wished Mazda would put the cx9 2.5L turbo gas engine in their 3s and 6s (yes it fits). That would put it in the same class of some German luxury/performance cars. It would blow the competition away with the extra hp/torque.
  14. Here's a topic here about Overheating troubleshooting. Even though the specs are for 626, the general diagnose still applies to most vehicles including Mazda Tribute/Ford Escape.
