  2. engine squeaks and overheats

    hi folks, im having an issue with my engine over heating and am wondering if anyone could help. the engine has been squeaking for a while which at first i thought was a belt, although having changed it turns out that wasn't the problem. the other night i was driving home from work and the engine light came on the dashboard, i checked the engine temperature and it was at the top of the gauge. after i pulled over, all the coolant spurted out from somewhere close to reservoir (i guess there was too much pressure). as there is squeaking and the engine is overheating, i can only think i need to replace the water pump? or is there something else i should check? -the squeaking is almost consistent, whether idol or driving, hot or cold engine, although stops sometimes completely randomly -the squeaking sounds like something spinning quickly (ie. a bad bearing) thanks in advance to anyone who can give an opinion, times are tough and id hate to purchase the wrong part haha!

  4. 2002 indicators and hazards stopped working

    Thanks for your help! I think I'm best taking it too a garage
  5. Hi folks i have recently acquired a 2002 Mazda 626 GSI 2.0L but sadly the indicators and hazards aren't working, not on the dash board, front, back nor either side light. I have read as many posts as I can find on the topic but not one that seems to help me, I have tried replacing both 'hazard' fuses and checked the 'tail fuses. before I bought the car the friend I bought it off said it has had a towe bar removed but the wires to the trailer plug were simply cut off above the plug. Could this be something to do with it? A few similar posts said that it could be the relay, could it be that simple? If so I've checked all my local auto parts shops and haven't had any luck, can anyone suggest where to find one?? Thanks for reading!! harry
