1994 Mazda Miata MX-5 Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 1994 Mazda Miata MX-5

A loud ticking noise (hydraulic valve lifter noise) may be heard from the top of the engine, particularly when the engine is still cold. The noise may occur more frequently on higher mileage vehicles; Hydraulic valve lash adjusters may need to be replaced to correct this issue. Following the maintenance schedule for oil changes will also help prevent a recurrence of the noise.

Failure of the valve cover gasket can allow engine oil to leak onto the spark plug wires and damage them. The engine will run poorly (misfire) if the spark plug wires fail.

I loved my 94 miata. It had about 60,000 miles on it and was still like new. Whoever owns it now probably thinks the same.
