  1. Okay, my name is Ty'Eira Marie Morrison Osteen, I'm from Asheville, NC. Kinda new to the Mazda game, a very interesting departure from my GM N-Body love, but I've always had a thing for the entire Capella/626/Telstar/MX-6/Probe lineup, plus the 323/Familia/Protégé/Escort/Tracer/Laser lineup as well. I'm just glad my first endeavor in the Mazda world involved a GE chassis Hunter Green Mica 626 ES-V6 with 188k on the clock. I'm growing to love this car by the minute (seeing as I just got it Friday), but the one thing I hate about this car is the fact that the Euro bodykit is nonexistent, and will forever be just a sad crushed dream. But otherwise, here's Old Six:
  2. Hello....My 626 is now approaching 133,000 miles, and I'm getting due for an oil change? Does anyone know if using high milage oil would be beneficial? I do not have any leaks that I'm aware of, and my valve cover gaskets were recently replaced due to a leak in the past, but now I have no leaks. I go approx 4500 between oil changes, but check my oil approx every 3 weeks after car has been sitting overnight, and the dip stick level always shows full with no signs of oil consumption. I've heard mixed opinions on weather or not it is worth using the high milage oil. My car seems to be running fine, and I average approx 26-27 miles per gallon with 70% highway and 30% city driving. Thanks, Mike
  3. Hello All, My 2000 Mazda ES-V6 now has approx 123,000 miles on it and I'm looking at doing a transmission flush on it. The last flush was about 2-3 years ago at approx 80K miles. Anyways, I've read that getting this done while the transmission was healthy can be nenificial, while a transmission that is not healthy, trhis can do more harm than good. As for my transmission, I'm not having any issues (that I'm aware of). I just checked my fluid per owners manual and my fluid is still a nice pinkish color at the right levels, so a flush would be preventative maintenance only. I'm worried about letting it go too long and all of a suden the fluid to start turning brown. I know that when I do a transmission flush, that I should ensure the mechanic replaces the filter as well. As you can see, as my car gets older, I'm doing everything that I can to keep it running like new, and so far, it still runs like it did the day I bought it (knock on wood). What's funny is for all the great new cars out there, I have no interest in trading in or selling my 626. Thanks for eveyone's advice, Mike

  5. Hello All, I'm new to these boards and I have a few questions. I have a 2000 Mazda 626 ES-V6, Automatic with 121,000 miles and had a few questions on engine additives: 1. Would using a oil additive like Slick 50 or equivalent be recommended? I don't have any leaks or engine compression issues that I'm aware of. 2. Would using a fuel supplement be recommended (i.E. Chevron Techron Concentrate). I currently use Chevron Premium, and I've used Chevron Premium since I bought the car new 12 years ago, but I never added any extra additive. Would this even be needed or recommended in my case? If I added the Techron concentrate additive, would it do 'extra cleaning' In reality, my car has been extremely reliable (knock on wood), and never broke down. (Again, knock on wood). I did have to replace the alternator at 120,000 miles, and got a new timing belt, Water Pump, and reservoir, as well as new serpentine belts, etc, but other than that, the car has been fantastic. I tend to keep the car very clean, and it still looks brand new inside, and I want to keep the car at least 3-5 more years if possible. Also, my sunroof is in great shape with no leaks, but what would be a good protectant for the rubber seal around the sunroof to prevent drying out? Thanks all for feedback! -Mike-
