Mazda ProblemsTurbocharger May Fail
A lack of power may develop due to a failed turbocharger. Failed turbochargers will require replacement to restore engine power.
Defective or worn out ignition coils can cause engine misfires and Check Engine Light illumination. If the problem is severe enough engine performance will suffer and the Check Engine light will flash on and off.
The cooling fan module can fail causing the fan to either run constantly, or not operate at all. If the fan runs continuously, the engine may not warm up properly, and if the fan does not run, the engine may overheat. Mazda has a voluntary recall on model years 2002-2003 to address this concern.

Mazda Questionsshould there be an open hole in my oil pan? (2 answers)
its about 1 inch in diameter and may be for breathing? I found the hole the other day and it was plugged with what looked like a cork screw. I believe it was plugged when I had an oil change. I have not had any accidents or went over any major bumps. Should this hole even be there?
