  1. A good bye and good luck. Back w/Yoda and IS-350

    Lounge
    I've been absent the past few years as life has a way of doing that sometimes. The short story is this, the 06 M6 3.0 6spd Auto had been real good to me but an opportunity came along. I've been wanting to get back to a rwd for some time and yes, I want more power too.... So, when a CL add had a...
  2. Cold start ticking - most likely causes?

    3.0L V6
    On the 3.0 that valve is a pita to get at. Doable but a pita. If your plugs are coming do or there is a reason to have the IM or rear valve cover off, do it then. Replaced mine and then the NEW TSB came out. More softer rubber to isolate it. FWIW: My water pump blew up at 95,000 or so. Locked...
  3. Headight assemblies, DDM HID, and Hypertech

    Exterior
    Thinking - Not sure of the housing has the OEM mount for the HID unit seeings those are Halogen LBs (Mounts to Bottom of H/L housing). This could be a show stopper as I only need them to save time during Moriomoto Bi-Xenon swap from the OEM HID units. A picture of the bottoms please! Tks...
  4. Headight assemblies, DDM HID, and Hypertech

    Exterior
    How much for L&R H/L assemblies? Just to verify: RS should have one of these # GP7B510K0B ; GP7B-51-0K0A; GP7B510K0A Tks
  5. The Official Hybrid HID Projector Thread FX35/TSX

    Electrical / HVAC
    LOL - we are in the same boat. Driving 90% nights these days and the OEM HID is NOT cutting it. If you recall I bought used TSX projectors but never installed them. I see now the Mini's out perform these (TSX) and come with an adapter plate. However they are geared towards the OEM H1 crowd vs...
  6. Headight assemblies, DDM HID, and Hypertech

    Exterior
    Do the housings have leveling system or No? I'd consider the housings L&R if MM didn't split the pair. :surprise:
  7. Cold start ticking - most likely causes?

    3.0L V6
    @98se5speed WOW! So much work being done! I've still got my six and it runs great. Was laid off, so it got a break from the 1,200 mile a month routine for 9 mo. It still ticks and the purge valve still thumps. If I had to guess the bulk of the noise is from the VVT hardware itself vs the...
  8. I'd appreciate any diagnostic help I can get...

    3.0L V6
    If it were mine and given you're about to throw money on it; I'd start by connecting a mechanical oil pressure gauge to that engine before going any further. Lets hope its a faulty sender, but a mechanical O/P gauge well tell you if the engines oiling system has pressure to sustain life. If its...
  9. New (working) starter not activating on 3.0

    3.0L V6
    So what was the fix? Yes, Still alive and MazDawg is well... :smile2: Just a bunch of life changes I'm adapting too!
  10. DIY: Fixing faded display

    Electrical / HVAC / Lighting / Audio
    It sorta works but it is not recommended. Using lead on lead free is doable for repairs while lead free to leaded is not going to work as well. Lead free is mostly Tin IIRC so it can lead to dry cracking.
  11. Cold start ticking - most likely causes?

    3.0L V6
    I've been away for a while, had to see where this was going. I'm guessing if checked the oil pressure when hot it would give good clue as to the noise. Then as I kept reading to get caught up your words here uncover its fate of sludge. Sorry! As for Blaine, that sucks too. Keep these things...
  12. New (working) starter not activating on 3.0

    3.0L V6
    ?? You replaced the old one to fix this problem as one day it would not start??? Any strange behavior before it failed to start or did it blindside you while on date??? :o:o
  13. New (working) starter not activating on 3.0

    3.0L V6
    Ya, use a test lamp to the smaller wire going to the starter. It should see battery voltage when you turn the key and push in the clutch. If it doesn't, first look at the clutch switch, is it getting depressed? If no, fix mechanical issue. If yes, then unplug it and place a meter acrossed set to...
  14. Front wheels wobble while turning

    Suspension / Brakes
    Maybe someone installed a locker w/out your knowledge! :o Back to the toe in, it has been aligned since being lowered/do you have the print out? Has anyone had the rightside axle out? Maybe its not seated all the way and is binding. You could check this by turning it full right or left (car at...
  15. ~~ The official "What did you do to your 6 today" thread!! ~~

    Mazda6 (Atenza)
    Yes, pads and rotors get hot quick and if your tracking the car, ya, the calipers will see much more heat. Again, most do not drive in a manor that even raises the caliper / bracket to 250F. The greater concern is actually not coating the seals vs a flash flame. i.e. taking time to do it right. JM2C
  16. Tcs light, swerving light and check engine light

    3.0L V6
    Off hand the OP's car ** seems like ** it went into limp mode (the jerk throwing it into 3rd gear). Which was very likely due to a CAN BUS error. All involved must read the codes from their car to get the details specific to the fault. Do bear in mind that some SCANNER and induce a fault on the...
  17. 2014 Mazda6 High Pitched Whine...

    Mazda6 (Atenza)
    Like removing your brake pads, this is not a good choice for all parties, but if you could remove the engine and trans from the equation that would really help. So at 40+ MPH, slip it into Neutral and ** BRIEFLY ** turn the key off. Listen. Restart car and drop it back into drive. Does the...
  18. Front Wheel Alignment Questions

    Suspension / Brakes
    I wrote one of the threads on this topic and having worked at a transmission shop I will say that its worth a try. Because the mounting point for the S/F is so far inbound, a tiny movement can at least fix your caster issue. The camber makes me think something is bent. Because you say all of...
  19. Help, lights not working anymore

    Electrical / HVAC
    ECM knows the keys chip, so that's not an issue. IIRC, there are no variants of the remote so long as you replace the module with the same one. Worst case, you reprogram it. Follow the link in my sig for instructions.
  20. Anyone use either of these code scanners?

    Engine / Drivetrain
    I have it. Its a china china knock off and is a PITA to get connected to Torque/Torque Pro as it always wants the password re-entered. Once connected it works OK. Buy two... maybe one will work! :lol:
