    Sticky: Re: Tensioner Pulley noise easy and cheap fix

    Its better to ignore negative comments. My opinion is; any opinion or suggestion is welcome, if its under the pretense of being helpful.

    As for me, I've had a very slight noise from my tensioner...
  3. Re: No Crank after throttle body cleaning 2005 2.0L

    Well typically if a engine does not crank whatsoever, it is an issue with the primary electrical system. Main causes are a dead battery, a starter connection or wire, or a dead solenoid/starter....
  4. Re: No Crank after throttle body cleaning 2005 2.0L

    Check your main fuses first, but it sounds like a dead battery, or a very low one.

    These cars will do weird things with a low battery, such as flash lights etc.

  5. Re: is anyone running any rust coatings/protection or undercoatings for our cars?

    Sorry but my statement still stands true; "If it doesn't drip its not running, if it doesn't run it doesn't get into the nooks and crannies where moisture accumulates."

    Re: Bad Brand New CV Axles??

    If you are experiencing the vibration at only certain speeds, such as between 80-100kph and not below or above those speeds, it is most likely an out of balance tire. Take it back and have them...

    If it doesn't drip its not running, if it doesn't run it doesn't get into the nicks and crannies where moisture accumulates.

    Re: 2007 Mazda 3 2.3L - terrible mileage

    Just stating your mileage per fill up tells us nothing. How many litres do you fill for those numbers. Calculate litres per 100km, and how many litres are still left. We have 55 litre tanks if I...
  10. Re: gen 1, replace rear shock mounts or nah?

    Steel should be much more robust obviously. The cost is only slightly more, so up to you.

    But I would suggest spraying them with rust inhibitive anyways. The wheel well area accumulates alot of...

    Re: Coolant Change Interval

    There are two checks for your coolant, one is strength which tells you what temperature it is good too and the second most important is a Ph level test, which tells you how acidic your coolant is....
  12. Re: gen 1, replace rear shock mounts or nah?

    I bought the Monroe Spectrum shocks and the mounting kit. The shocks feel pretty close to original, and I sprayed the mounts with Krown formula when installed to limit corrosion.

  13. Re: is anyone running any rust coatings/protection or undercoatings for our cars?

    I don't think one could claim it will stop existing rust 'completely' from spreading, but it will slow it down pretty good.

    To the OP; It can't hurt to get it sprayed, especially if you want to...
  14. Re: recommended 150,000 km maintenance for a 2006 2.3l?

    Its always a safe bet to change your coolant if your not sure, especially now with winter coming. It also doesn't cost much.

    As for your previous comment list; Plugs should be replaced at 120k and...

    Re: Krown vs Platimum Shield Protection?

    Stick with Krown, its total BS that it will hurt anything. Been doing my '05 yearly with Krown and have had no issues electronically or otherwise. I just recently after over 340k kms had a few issues...
  17. Re: If you were to trade-in or buy another vehicle besides a Mazda, what would it be?

    Just call KIA HQ and ask them if that's true, I doubt it is though.

    I've talked to a couple of drivers at work who just bought KIAs, they have a pretty good extended warranty offer $2000 gets you...

    Re: P0444 Code Mazda 3 2011 Hatchback

    He said he checked his gas cap, although the gas cap could be bad and he wouldn't know how to tell. Also a bad gas cap would be unlikely to cause very poor fuel economy.

    Both P0444 and P0443 are...
  19. Re: If you were to trade-in or buy another vehicle besides a Mazda, what would it be?

    Google -Toyota apparently is coming out with a new Hatch which will be turbo and possibly all wheel drive and will offer standard 6 spd. You may want to wait a bit as alot of new cars are coming down...

    I've never had the P0444 code, but I have had the p0443 code which are very similar. In my case it was the PSV which I changed out twice. The third time I got the code, I just left it alone, as it...

    Re: Front Wheel Bearing failure, short life

    Agree, $500 a side is ridiculously high. I changed out my right bearing and hub a few years ago and it cost me around $200.
