    Transmission Torque specs and more

    Other guys changed out their ATF a liter or a two at a time. They would drain out 1-2 liters and put in 1-2 liters of new ATF and run it for a while for the transmission to adjust. Then do it again multiple times. The ATF never gets completely changed, but the transmission operates properly.

    Transmission Torque specs and more

    This is the information for the 2002 Mazda Protege and Protege5. (I own a Protege5) I assume that your transmission is the same ? I don't think that the digital thermometer and probe is necessary, but the big thing is to make sure your engine is idling when you check your dipstick...

    The valence or the rubber skid plate? Plasti-dip peels off the valence if you don't like it.

    Haynes’ Protege5

    I could have used the rubber bumper protector. My car didn't come with one. I've pounded a lot of crap in and out of my 'trunk'. My rear valance painted... (I didn't paint it. I spent half an hour blacking out the picture with my finger on my phone. Lol)

    Problem with Brakes overheating

    I'm guessing that your slider pins need to be greased. I use SIL-GLYDE it's awesome stuff. (it's silicone grease) You may have seized or binding caliper pistons, you could check under the dust boots to see if they look rusty. There is also brake pad springs that you may need to install...
