    The previous owner did some modifications to the car which was not disclosed. After my mechanic replaced the starter of the car, he forgot how these wires go in or match. These are what seems to be the only ones left that are not plugged in. The check engine light is also on after replacing the...

    I plan on doing a turbo upgrade with the stock speed6 turbo and can't find/figure out what Turbomanifold will be needed that will be good cost-wise and work well. Below are the parts I'm planning on getting for the build and other things. It's a stock engine with 112k miles on it and pretty...
  4. Mazda6 (Atenza)
    So I recently bought a used car (a 2010 Mazda6) It has the check engine light and my dad’s code scanner is saying it’s the Park/Neutral safety switch yet I can’t find anything on how to find or fix it. I’m also not a car guy so any help would be greatly appreciated.
  5. 2.3L I-4
    My 2004 2.3L I-4 is using about a quart of oil every two weeks. It’s not smoking at all, no abnormal engine noise, or tapping. Car runs great I must say for having almost 160k on it. I’m just curious where my oil is going?! Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! Cheers

    Hi guys, I'm a complete idiot and accidentally threw away my keys to my 2009 Mazda 6 iSport on Sunday night. Sadly, I didn't have a back up key. Had the keys remade today but as soon as the locksmith put the key into the door, it immediately locked all doors and the key would not unlock the...

    Hello, I changed out the spark plugs in my 2004 6s 3.0 today. It was about 85,000 miles since the last time they were changed so I figured I was due. Just looking for opinions on wear on the plugs. It seems pretty normal to me but a different set of eyes never hurts. TIA

    Hello, I'm replacing the spark plugs and coils on my 2004 Mazda 6s 3.0 L and I came across a hose that has a huge gash in it. I'm not sure what the hose is called and could use some help identifying a replacement part or elbow for the hose. I've attached a couple of pictures showing the hose and...

    So I bought an ms6 and the tranny went bad. With my situation I have to get rid of it instead of install a new one. So I decided to ask the mazda greats. With everything else being sound in the vehicle, just had a new clutch too, how much could I ask for with it having a bad transmission? Any...
