I will be emailing Mazda about it. You can use jumper wires to inspect this. In August, 2014, Mazda was sued for in its L-Series engines. Have always maintained it well. All depends on the dealer. I'm a little confused on the difference in parts It doesn't look like the Tensioner was changed, or chain guides - but the engine purrs like a kitten now.
Both Mazda and the dealership are telling me they will not do anything for me, because the vehicle is out of warranty. After years of this nonsense I had went to go to The Tire Place to put new tires on my car the owner was like holy Shit your car sounds horrible can I take a look? I'll definitely be returning for further purchases in the future. Not sure if Classic can offer a special if you bring in the parts. I am beyond furious about the fact Mazda states these are not recalls there were several recalls in this particular car. Only have 130,000 miles on it and still owe 900 on it.
I bought this car used 3 years ago and have replaced the Turbo, Control Arms recall item. Oh, and it needs the ball joints replaced which are covered under a recall!! At about 40thousand the power train module went transmission computer went was replaced under warranty. So I got it from a used dealership. The failure mileage was 34,000 and the current mileage was 65,164. I was quoted at a price of 5000 for a new engine. You just need to know where the marks are on each gear and where they must be pointing to get it timed right.
And they will not fix it. Valves control the flow of fuel, air, and gasses in your engine. The was filed in the U. Wonder if anyone knows the length of a good chain, to see if mine was stretched. Mazda please have some integrity you knew about these issues with the engine from 2007-2010 so please take care of your customers. What a coincidence Mazda has discontinued manufacturing the Mazda cx7.
Right now im in depth because of what happened to my car. Belts can really make loud pooping noises. So i called the dealership but unfortunately they refused to help me. The engine revs high on start up and seems to quiet back down almost immediately. No fault of my own. I visit three mechanics and all three mechanics are telling me it's the vvt timing chain.
My car would not start again. That way you could loosen that one up to assist in taking up the slack in the chain. I was told the new engine was guaranteed for 100,000 miles, just like the factory engine that failed. I owned a 2006 Suzuki Forenza that was a much better purchase than this piece of crap. I now have the option of purchasing a used engine with about the same number of miles my car had it when I purchased it so 2.
It make a loud noise on startup for few seconds and then timing chain clicking noise whe idling and driving. Well, 10,000 miles ago and under extended warranty we heard a slight rattle at startup. He did more research and discovered that the vvt was bad as well. In traffic car suddenly slowed to crawl at 20mph once car was navigated to shoulder and stopped it would not restart. The extended warranty plan wants maintenance records and oil change records which I don't have.
Known problem reported numerous times and yet Mazda dealership has informed me that with the maintenance records provided they are refusing repair. Can I join the Class Action Law Suit? This is a manufacture issue and Mazda needs to own up for it. The new engine should be guaranteed from the date of replacement. This should have been a recall, and not addressed by a service bulletin. If the notches do not line up, that indicates the actuator is faulty. I told you so, assholes.
