    2007 Mazda5 muffler from Mazda3?

    Does anyone know if a Mazda3 muffler can be made to fit on a Mazda5? There are literally no mufflers in Canada. I can't really wait 1.5 weeks for it to arrive from Rockauto or Ebay. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    2007 Mazda5 flex pipe ?

    Hey so I have a hole in my flex pipe. The shop says the part has to be ordered directly from Mazda because it comes in all one big piece including the catalytic converter? And it's also not a standard sized pipe so they can't just weld in a new piece, which sucks. They said $2500? Seems a...

    Sad to see her go...

    Holy s*** I test drove a 2008 Dodge Caliber for a day .... WHAT A PIECE OF s***. My old Protege5 with bad rear struts is better in every single way. More space inside, better interior, way better engine (protege still smooth and powerful, 2liter at 2500lbs vs 1.8 liter at 3000lbs, similar gas...

    Rear struts + mounts replacement labor cost?

    Hey fellas, if I were to supply the parts, how much would you say is a fair rate to pay to have someone put them in? I don't have the tools/time/space (apartment), although I'd love to try. I can have the struts + mounts shipped for about $180. I found a local guy on Kijiji and he's going to...

    Who has the perfectly un-rusted silver P5 in Fredericton?

    Man, your car is 100x better than mine rust-wise. Do you dip it in an oil bath every night before storing it in a climate controlled garage or something? Mine was even rustproofed for the first 6 years of its life, and krowned again this year. I'm really curious why some Proteges rust...

    Parking brake snapped

    So I took it to my local shop, while the previous owner who did the test drive handed the keys back to me, he said "We'll have to replace a short cable up front", then his son who now runs the place said "No with these Mazda's, it spits into 2 cables towards the back and can only be ordered as...

    Check engine code without scanner?

    Hi everyone. Just curious if its possible to get the check engine code without using a scanner, for example in my old Dodge Neon you could turn the key a few times and the CEL would blink like morse code. I had the exhaust repaired recently and I'm guessing its the lower oxygen sensor since...
