2008 Mazda CX-7 Problems

Engine Noise Due to Worn Timing Chain

The engine may develop a ticking noise from the front of the engine due to a worn timing chain. Our technicians tell us that replacing the timing chain and related component will generally correct this issue.

Warm Air From AC System

The AC compressor may fail causing the AC system to blow warm air, smoke may also appear from the engine. A failed AC compressor will require replacement. Mazda has extended the warranty on these compressors to 5 year or 60K mikes. If these conditions are noted our technicians recommend to turn the AC system off and have it inspected as soon as possible.

Turbocharger May Fail

A lack of power may develop due to a failed turbocharger. Failed turbochargers will require replacement to restore engine power.
