    Need help with front sway bar bushing (2015 Mazda6)

    Loosening the front sub-frame mounts and dropping the rear mounts will probably give you enough room to lower the rear of the subframe and undo the sway bar brackets and slide the bar out the end. Mazda 6 Service Manual: Front crossmember removal/installation Mazda 6...

    2006 Mazda6 Diesel cranks but won’t start

    Loosing power while in motion is never good...Exciting but not good. Glad you figured it out.

    2007 Mazda6 (1.8) 5speed Manual - High revs? 6speed swap?

    The 6speed does not really change your final drive ratio much at all in this car unfortunately. It mostly just adds another gear to shorten your intervals between 1-5. 3000RPM @ 100kph is fairly annoying but I believe Mazdas purpose was to prevent smaller displacement engines from lugging. You...

    What have you done to your Mazda6 today?

    I replaced the aftermarket JDM corner tail lens with a new old stock I ordered from a dealer in Latvia. It was collecting water and turning into a fish tank. That Latvian dealer sent me what has to be the best packed package I have ever received!

    2002-2007 Mazda6 Wiring Diagram Book

    Thanks for the link. Keep in mind this is for Japanese Market (VIN = JMZ-) and there are variations between USDM models (esp. 2003-2005).

    Paint Chipping - touch up pen?

    I have used the touch-up pen with excellent results. I use A2N "Performance White" and the pen allows you to squeeze the container in order to add a larger bleb or even to be used with the tip pointed up. Get it.

    New battery at 4 yrs 41k miles???

    The battery in my 2004 only lasts about 2yrs. The temperature under the hood of that thing is impressive.

    Mazda Still Using Ford Brakes?

    Just have them machined "turned". They are $15 ea and you should be able to do it 2 or 3 times at least.

    Wheel bearing

    The control arms generally last 100,000mi but can be had for pretty cheap and are not hard to replace. Catalytic failure is present in the 03-07 v6 cars due to a misfire of the COP. When left uncorrected it destroys the precat and this can be sucked back into the engine causing massive oil...

    Spark Knock (2016 66.000mi)

    I would run a tank of premium grade. Perhaps cycling the ECU (disconnect battery for 1 min) and allowing the car to relearn with the higher grade fuel. DO you drive mostly city (stop and go)?

    How long do you think a 6 will last without significant repairs?

    This all depends on how you drive and maintain it. Adult driven (aka. reasonably) and conducting all maintenance regularly I would think well past 200,000mi

    Need help, motor swap

    Bummer. Pull the clutch out of yours and take it down to the parts store and compare it to both. Or buy both online and return the one you don't use. Good luck.

    2003 Mazda 6 S struts upgrade

    The Pro Kit was designed for stock shocks. A KYB GR2 would be a sufficient replacement. If you wanted adjustability or longer life with added control the Koni sport or Bilstein B6 are frequently used. I have Racing Beat springs and older KYB GR2's and they perform reasonably well. My next pair...

    Which Mazadaspeed6 suspension parts will fit my 2006 Mazda 6 wagon?

    good question. I am not sure about a GS wagon (never heard of that designation) but I can speak to my 2004 GY wagon. The interior will fit and quite nicely but there is some wiring you may have to figure out with the auto down and vent window controls. My 2004 does not have these options (Hall...
