questions

i hear a squeak in the right front wheel....what could it be? ball joint?

I need to know how to remove the intake manifold so i can replace the pcv valve.

car started to blow cold air instead of hot then gauge went to hottest position

I have electric seats on my Mazda 6 and sometimes when I am backing up, I have had the seat-belt hangup on the seat controls!! This would cause the seat to move back and the seat to tilt back-words, this lifted my feet off the gas or brake peddle! When this happen to me I was backing up.
I had my foot lifted up of the brake peddle and I almost drove into the car behind me! I was lucky, I was able to slid down somewhat so I could reach the brake in time to stop!!

If this has happen to you let me know Please!!!!

Hey all, maybe you can help me out. My check engine light came on last week, the computer diagnosis said it was the crank shaft position sensor. I had that fixed, and the light was still on. Next the mechanic said it was the CAM sensor (I think). Had that replaced with tune up and oil change. Still on.

The symptoms are as follows:
1. Check engine light is on.
2. TCS lights are on (both the car on slippery surface logo and the one that says TCS OFF flashes)
3. Car rattles when I accelerate and the RPMs stall frequently when I stop accelerating. The needle just drops to zero and hops back up.

Has anyone had similar issues? The mechanic was clueless about these problems (which makes me wonder why I gave him the money to diagnose the problem in the first place....)

The things that may be causing the problems that i have pulled from later model Mazda 6i issues were:

bad tensioner pulley
exhaust leak on the manifold
the hydraulic valve lash adjustor?
or out of date software on the powertrain control module.

Any help at all would go a long way to fixing my headache. Advil only goes so far....

engine light came on. Diagnostic said these codes.PO151,PO131, and PO455

What does it mean when you say the charger system should be checked thoroughly after replacing a battery? My dealership is replacing the battery. Is this something I should ask to be done, or is it standard?

The car overheat after the roller of the adjuster got stuck. (He roller was lubricated with engine oil, replaced the belt and the engine temperature is normal. The engine power remain low to the extent that it take make some shudder noise before it moves. It is sluggish at low speed especially. The response is poor. I was told the cylinder head gasket is still good since the temperature dial read normal.

Car idling poorly ....smoke, stalling. Told is was tensioner on water pump???

the rear windows don't work any suggestions

Yesterday morning my Mazda 6 2007 battery was dead. After jump starting it the turn signal light stays on. The automatic door lock would not work. The internal lights would not come on when the door opens. Nothing was left on the night before but there was a strong rain storm during the night. Some research on the internet leads me to beleive the Body Control Module (BCM) could be harmed. Is this common? is there a recall? How much would this cost to fix and will it happen again when it rains? I appreciate feedback you may have.

what would it cost to repair a driver side CV joint or Axel

I had driven my car about 20 miles then suddenly it started violently shaking when I was stopped at a red light. as soon as I started moving again it was fine it continued this for awhile. I started putting my car in neutral when stopped with no problems. when I got home I tried to make it do it so my husband could see and it ran just like normal. Taking it to dealership but any ideas what is wrong. No check engine lights ever came on.

problem just started fault code P0012 cam sensor actuator tell me where it's located please.

how do i change my alternator?

When stopping, RPMs jump above and below the normal range before settling, and then often dip to an almost stall while running.

I recently replaced the upper and lower intake gaskets. Unable to find any damaged hoses that would cause a vacuum leak.

Thanks all!

I own a 2008 Mazda 6I and have noticed that the transmission clunks when it shifts from 3rd to 4th. 1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd and 4th to 5th are all fine just 3rd to 4th when accelerating with medium to hard pressure. The mechanic says that it's normal but I don't believe him. Is this normal?

Hey iv had my mazda for two years now and it just recently started giving me problems.the problem is when the car shifts into second from first.what happens is the rpms rev out and the the trans feels like it slams into gear.I've looked every were to try to find an answer.

I have a CEL and I was trying to pull the code up. I tried two different scanners and both would not connect. I checked the pins and they all look good and solid. I checked my cig lighter fuse and its fine. then I disconnected the battery to try and get everything to reset. Still will not connect. Good thing is I no longer have a CEL because of the battery disconnect (for now).
What else can I check? Any suggestions?

Hoping to find out the location of the thermostat on this beauty, it is a 4 cylinder 2.5

So it started when one day my gas light went on, so I went to put gas and after refueling my car wouldn't start. In order for it to start I have to make sure I am giving it gas while cranking the key. I have took to so many places had them read it in the computer, and they said it might be the O2 sensor, but they aren't sure. I don't want to replace anything that isn't needed. I read a lot of forums where people had the same problem. Can someone please help me?! Oh and now my check engine light is on and my AT (automatic transaxle) light is on as well. Also my car jolts hard when i change from Drive to reverse! WTH!!

Battery (car and keyless remote) was checked out fine (car) or replaced (remote). About every 4th or 5th start it won't start. Dealer can't seem to figure out the problem. What's likely? Have extended warranty. What can we make them check that they would not want to?

Vehicle has an intermittent slight miss when accelerating. Engine light has gone on twice then goes off. A repair facility identified the code as number 5 cylinder had a misfire. They had the vehicle for the day and could not identify the problem.

How do I replace the front headlight bulbs in my vehicle?
