  1. I tore into the lower end of my 2.5L V6 to see what is wrong with my engine, it’s knocking. So, does Mazda use a different kind of bolt, because these bolt heads don’t look like what I was expecting to find. I’ve worked on various cars, but this is the first time I’ve taken apart a Mazda engine. Do they use a proprietary wrench/socket to assemble/disassemble? (See picture to see bolt head.)
  2. Hey Guys went in to do my smog today and after running multiple tests my guy couldnt get it to pass it kept coming back at 130 hc ppm max being 56 in Ca. both Nox and CO were perfectly fine. everything ran fine at the 25mph test and passed with flying colors at 25.HC was at 34 at 25mph. If anyone has any suggestions on the solution it would be greatly appreciated i will be swapping plugs and doing a fuel injector cleaning with an oil change in the next couple days.
  3. Hey guys I have a few questions about my Mazda 626 2002. 1) I want to swap out my i4 for a V6 KLZE and was wanting to make sure all the engine mounts would work just fine. 2) Is it possible to get engine harness and everything else needed to make the V6 work, without getting a donor car? Like maybe a Mazda Dealer Ship. (or does all the wiring already match, im gonna assume no) 3) I want to swap it to a manual transmission, but will my i4 trans work with the KLZE V6 for now? Thanks everyone, I plan to make an entire video on my swap and how to do it for Mazda 626 Lovers, but I jus
  4. Hey guys, A little back story. My mom had a 2.0 1996 mazda 626 MTX since 1996. She was not the first owner, however the previous had the car for maybe a month or two. In 2015 I took the car for myself and became the new owner while she went and bought a mazda 6. The car is entirely stock other then the exhaust I put on that first year. We touched up the paint and I try to keep it as clean as possible. As of right now it has 260k miles on it, the lifters are tapping, burning and leaking oil, and smoke comes out the tail pipe on some start-ups or when i push it to 5k ya know lol. I have bee
  5. Taking a shot in the dark here, but does anyone know of a second-generation MX-6 LS, fourth generation V6/5-speed 626, or a 3rd generation 626 GT for sale in the NY/NJ/PA/CT area? I've been looking everywhere and can't find anything (The 626GT that I was going to buy got sold). I've owned eight Mazdas to date, and really want to get back into it again.
  6. Can anyone recommend a good cheap (80-150$) aftermarket cold air intake kit for my 2000 Mazda 626 LX V6 Auto? One thatll fit and i wont really have any problems with the MAF or IAT or anything like that? im kind of new to all of this. Also, if i wernt to install it (i would obviously try my self, doesnt seem to hard) how much would it cost to have a mechanic install it? (just a base price?) Thanks!
  7. Hey guys. I Just bought my first Mazda. Its 626LX V6 AT with just 61,000 KM (39,000 Miles). One owner since new. Everything is working good, but I know that tranny on them is weak and I want to keep it in a good shape as long as it possible. Im not sure if the transmission fluid was changed on this car, and I have two options now: 1. Change transmission fluid as soon as it possible at dealership. Or 2. I can add some good additives of LubeGuard like this one Additive. What you can advise me to make my tranny shift smoother. I also think that I have to chang
  8. No dash light indicator when I try to turn on cruise control. Others have suggested replacing STOP and TURN fuses in kick panel. Fuses are fine. No response from power mirror controller. I will take any and all suggestions. Thanks!

  10. Hi guys, first post here. Just made an account actually to ask this. OK so I've been working on my 2000 mazda 626 lx v6 for a while now and something problematically new shows its face once I resolve the previous. But I digress; the mount or bracket, for the idler pulley for the belt system with the AC and Altenator will not stay put in its designated spot. The top long bolt (10mm)will go in but if tightened a tiny bit too much, it'll loosen. Now it seems the bottom bolt (12mm) has copied it's topside brother and decided to 1up him and came off during yesterday's transit. Since it happ
  11. I was curious if people needed this info? I have the part numbers to all motor mounts and transmission mounts for the 626 v6. You can get them through any parts store! plus a lifetime warranty. My car is a 2001 626es 2.5L AUTOMATIC The brand of mounts are "Anchor." I do know that your major parts place usually stock this brand and it comes with a lifetime warranty. Just let me know if this would be of use and i will edit this with Part numbers and a possible diagram. thanks

  13. I have been to 2 Pick-a-part junkyards and have not been able to find a V6 with the KL-G4 cams. I live in Central Indiana so my choices are limited. Does anyone know where I can get a rear cylinder head online for my '99 626 with a V6? Or does anyone have one that they are willing to sell? Thanks!

  15. Looking at swapping a buick v6 from a commodore into my 1978 sedan, just wondering if anyone has had any experience or sussgestion i would be very thankful
  16. 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 p
  17. I have a 1992 V6 2.0ltr Cronos (626) that will now not start after it had the catalytic converter overheat. I have replaced the converter with a resonator and still it will not start or run. I have checked for spark and fuel & it has both of these. I have replaced the ECU as I thought it might have been that but still it would not start or run. I have pinned the diagnostic plug to see what error code/s come up but it would not show me. It is as if the computer has no power to it. When I pinned it the radiator fan kicked in and was running constantly does anyone have an idea as to what it m
  18. The airbag light started flashing out of nowhere one day. It flashes 7 times pauses then flashes 7 again. I've looked up codes and there isn't a 77.. What does this mean??
  19. Hi everyone, this is my first post here on the forum but I've owned V6 GE 626's for about 4 years now and pretty much know them inside out (at least it feels that way haha). I'm the owner of the Chalk board painted 95 V6. It was inevitable... my O2 sensors are finally on the way out and my fuel economy is quickly going down hill, currently sitting on 9.4L/100km (highway driving) vs early this year getting 7.9L/100km (highway driving). Replacing these expensive little suckers is proving a harder task then first thought. The only local auto parts store (repco, NSW Australia) sells the things f
  20. 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
  21. Hi Guys, Yesterday I found a guide on internet for how to pull out codes from old mazda's with Diagnoses box as we don\t have that system where you can put the computer and it will give you all the codes, These ones were bit hard to understand but I got it God I got 7 codes and I need help on testing these things, 04, 05, 12, 15, 17, 23, 41 I am attaching a picture where it says what these code means Also video is coming up for how to diagnose with LED and wire. P.s: My timing is out if it can effect any sensors or codes.
  22. About 4 or 5 months ago I had the distributor replaced on my 1997 Mazda 626 lx 2.5 5 speed. We took it in, got it swapped out and put in a new radiator while it was in. Now, the symptoms I was having when my distributor last went out have come back. I'm taking it to the place we got it fixed last time (not the dealer) tomorrow, but I just want to see if anyone has had this happen to them, and if so what caused it? I've had no problems with my car other than this happening last time. It only has 50k miles on it, so it has plenty of life left. I've always thought Mazda's were reliable, but it se
  23. 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 fi
  24. 1993 Mazda GE 626 Hatchback. 2.5L V6, 5 speed manual, no leaks, runs very well, gearbox changes gears great and there is no crunching. Full options, cruise control, climate control, electric windows, electric mirrors, electric 3 way sunroof. 315,000 km's on the clock. Alloy wheels, good tyres, new battery and a few other bits under the bonnet. Sony Xplod CD/MP3 player with speakers. No reg/RWC, but confident that it will need minimal time and work to pass an inspection. BAD POINTS: Clutch needs adjustment, still drives very well but it just feels a bi
  25. Hi there, I bought a 96 2.5 with 138,000 km's on it about a month ago, and yesterday I changed the oil for the first time. It was definitely due an oil change as the old oil was dirty and black. I used Castrol GTX 5w-30 and a fram filter. The first problem was the manual called for 3.7 litres of oil, but when that amount was put in the dipstick was registering just over the L mark. So I probably put another 200ml in and it went up to between the F and L. I let the car sit on level ground for about 15 minutes before starting. When I started it sounded like a diesel. It has a lower idle and a d
