  1. The 400k club

    1st-Gen
    To be sure... not the internal (inside-case) waterpump drive version v6... but still - apparently not with a super reliabilty rep V6. Pretty darned good!
  2. Performance Mods for Mazda6

    3rd-Gen
    Orange Virus Tune focused on bottom-end. CAI will weaken bottom end generally and axle-back exhaust may, too.
  3. 2018 Signature seat trim issue

    Models / Trim
    Though this represents faulty design - Mazda's fault - at some point they'll refuse to do the repair I'm guessing. At that point it'll be time to yourselves render the piece in all-metal and hopefully solve the problem. See my idea above...
  4. UV glass ??

    3rd-Gen
    Yeah, memory is coming back. The promotional info for the '17.5 models makes reference to the changes / improvements that came-in for '17...
  5. UV glass ??

    3rd-Gen
    I may have the '16 and '17 mixed up. I see in my files the attached graphic, and I have named it for the '17's... but I may be wrong, here.
  6. What are your guys' thoughts on the evil m badge?

    3rd-Gen
    I would consider one if it were satin black. I'm not sure where the badge holes are... at 3:00 and 9:00 or in another location. Their location figures-in to how to proceed... Whatever you do - make sure said replacement badge is contoured to match the body contours... OR.. take a new...
  7. 2018 Mazda6 Jack-up Point

    Interior / Exterior
    This also might be of some use to you, perhaps a bit fussy to do this, I would say, but does speak to applying torsion to the car's body (i.e. further-on in the post). https://www.mazda6club.com/threads/my-solution-for-getting-my-6mt-car-onto-four-ramps-without-undue-clutch-wear.439722/
  8. 2018 Mazda6 Jack-up Point

    Interior / Exterior
    I should add, of course, that this if for my 3rd Gen. (in this case, 2017) Mazda6.
  9. 2018 Mazda6 Jack-up Point

    Interior / Exterior
    On the rocker panel FLANGE... the flange that is pinch-welded (and that comprises a vertical surface) there are two "bumps" or bubbles. The mfr. intends for that to be the place where the rocker panel is lifted. Me, I don't agree, as - if you use the scissor jack at those points - it will bear...
  10. Tire Noob: Winter Tire sizes question.

    Newbie Section
    I have OEM Mazda 16 X 7 steel wheels ready to go for my '17 Mazda6 Sport. For winter tires I will be going with 205/65 Nokian Tyre Hakkapeliitta (if memory serves, R3 winter tires) with a higher load rating than the OEM stock Yokohama's. The load rating is higher but the Hakka's have a lower...
  11. Gas pedal extender for heel/toe

    Models / Trim
    I forget the make of alum. pedal covers - but there is one out there that has a lip on the RHS of the brake cover to prevent your toe from accidentally hooking under the brake pedal when you cock your foot over to the left to heel 'n toe (heel 'n toe is a misnomer... does't accurately describe...
  12. Cold Start Delete..?

    3rd-Gen
    I retract what i said earlier re mixture richness for starting and warmup conditions. For sure it IS richer. But not excessively so. No "lope". When i think of it, yes, a cat converter runs hotter with richer conditions and you want early precat light-off. Precat does the work in desmogging an...
  13. Lagging on Acceleration

    3rd-Gen
    The good side of this, to my way of thnking, is that fuel/mixture enrichment is NOT the prevalent or primary way of dealing with this... and so fuel dilution of the motor oil is not often reported on at least the normally aspirated SkyActiv-G 2.5. Compare this to the prbs being experienced with...
  14. Cold Start Delete..?

    3rd-Gen
    U can install a block heater. I have 'em on some of my cars... and i don't use 'em cuz the car won't otherwise start... bu for mebe 2 hrs b4 start to make it easier on the engine...
  15. Cold Start Delete..?

    3rd-Gen
    I meant to say "louder" not "loader". Hafta figure out how to rdit posts šŸ˜
  16. Cold Start Delete..?

    3rd-Gen
    It may not necessarily be running richer. In fact I doubt it cuz i) that'd load the precat with more unburnt hydrocarbons and be harder on it and could compromise its life expectancy; and ii) it doesn't have that loping sound of a car that's had its choke left on (for those older folks who've...
  17. 2015 mazda 6 Manual Transmission Problems

    Newbie Section
    Seems to me that either the clutch slave cylinder has become seized in its deployed position or the clutch master cylinder has seized its deployed position. Disassembly of one or both is in order....? If you do this yourself be aware that i) brake fluid is poisonous and is absorbed through skin...
  18. Just hit 60K miles on my 2015 Mazda 6

    3rd-Gen
    What I forgot to say... was that the car needs to be elevated (AND level).

    Oh, be sure to clean the pan, and the magnets that are stuck to the pan.
