anyone have any luck sourcing replacement rear struts for cars with the a.a.s. system? The struts for the non a.a.s. model are so tall that the spring is loose. I guess i could find springs and struts from a non turbo but those will make the rear higher.
Hi there I wonder if you find out what is the problem? I have the same issue with my 03 Nissan Murano. I change sparked plugs and and coils, radiator, fan and thermostat were also replaced. They did a head gasket test and it seems fine. But after a lil drive through hills engine starts misfiring and overheating gauge goes up and down...3 shops no body can seem to figure out whats causing that. I like to go out of town to camp specially during the summer time, now im scared to drive to far and do some damage to the engine.
Hi ALL , from South Africa - If the model differs - So i have a serious coolant leak on my 626 2.0 I4. Issue is , i cannot find the leak , water drips onto the sump but it looks like its coming from around the crankshaft pulley . Has anyone experienced this ? Are there any spots i can try check specifically ?
Thanks in Advance
Hi Blinger - I think your head gasket is fucked. If ur losing coolant like u say. White smoke is COOLANT burning away...NOT oil. Pull the head and make sure u install the gasket perfectly...it must be done properly. Have fun - Dean Mann Somerset East South Africa
My understanding is the regulator for the alternator is in the PCM - not the alternator. All modern Mazda's are this way, and I assume this must have been one of the first ones that started this way.
All my wiring between the PCM and the alternator has tested okay. I've even bypasses the factory wiring harness, and put in a wire straight from the PCM to the alternator - no change.
I believe my PCM has failed, I just want confirmation. Does it output a changing voltage, dependent on load? I'm looking at maybe getting a PCM off a wrecked car, but wondering if there are other options.
