  1. My car recently started overheating. 1996 Mazda 626 V6 220,000 miles We did replace the thermostat. I have the water pump but havent put it in yet as it appears to be quite a chore and wanted to get an opinion before I replace it. When it sits in idle with nothing on its fine temp gauge rests in the middle. Went for a short 7 minute drive and it slowly lifted to the H position. Today I had it parked and just ran it, it was fine. I turned on the heater and it took several minutes for it to rise above the middle section of the gauge. I switched to AC and it rose steadily to the H position. The thermostat I believe was part of an issue with the car. Before replacing it the car took quite a while to heat up, now it warms up to the middle of the temp gauge in about 5 minutes. I am what I like to call "car retarded" so all this is very new to me, any help will be useful and if it could be in the plainest english that would be great. I was running low on water in the radiator, when it was drained it was very brown and wasnt very much. After replacing the thermostat and thinking the car was good we replaced the fluid with 50/50 antifreeze. Now that its still overheating we are looking for other options, we plan to flush the radiator (what is the best way to do that?) Also what do I do to properly dispose of the antfreeze that comes out? If I could get a list of to do, from easiest to hardest that would be amazing! Thank you in advance
  2. Looking at $3000 with 6 months rego and RWC, the RWC is looking at ~$2300 worth of work/repairs including things like suspension and brakes, haven't gotten a proper list of repairs but I'm worried about buying a car needing that much work. Regardless of what is needed being done is $3000 for that car a decent price? Thanks
  3. Hey there - not sure if this is against the norm or not, but I have a 1996 626 ES for sale. 165,000km / manual / 4 cylinder / great condition The car is in great condition, drives well, however the brake line recently blew along the driver side and I haven't gotten it fixed yet. I can certainly post a few pictures, but let me know if there's any initial interest and we'll go from there. I'm in a situation where I need to get rid of it pretty quickly, so I'm willing work out a very fair price. Let me know if there's any questions. Thanks, - Nathan
