So the Mazda is overheating? You would have to find the cause of it overheating. Look for broken hoses, check the coolant, make sure the fans are working. There is just so much to list. Start with those and if still nothing, it may be the tstat or water pump.
The chain adjusters are hydraulic, just like any other type/brand, BUT they are dependent on the motors oil pressure to maintain their working pressure, not self contained like Mitsubishi. Lose oil pressure and you lose timing possibly. Im quite sure thats what happened to my 6 and i thought it was a head gasket since i was using a LOT of coolant after a wp replacement (i have a thread on it) so i took it to a friend of a friend who did some work on another friends Jeep and i was satisfied, what i didnt know was, he wasnt going to be the one who did the work. Long story shorter, i think they replaced one of the adjusters with a faulty unit and didnt want to back up their work after it died in less than 2 months and less than 1000 miles (i barely drove it 9k/yr, took me 14 months to put 10k on the 3) despite the issue of the mechanic quitting during the job.
Im quite sure im gonna need head gaskets and while the parts are under $400, i have a feeling im not gonna like the labor/machine shop costs and may just get another car. Unless i can get a decent whole car offer, ill part it out as im sure i can get a lot more in parts. Odo sits a bit over...
