Before installation, rotate the joint of the end of the electric variable valve timing motor so that it is aligned to the joint groove on the electric variable valve timing actuator side. All 4 don't go at once. It turns out the timing chain stretched and took out all the valves in the engine. Remove the fuel hose from the clip and set it aside. So is it cranking or not? I'm open to any suggestions that will prevent me from towing this to the dealer and bending over. Off to another dealer tomorrow morning who was upfront on the phone with the 5. We checked and he said it sounds like the lifters.
I think I'm gonna hack it myself when the time comes. Basically just check that all your wires are in tact and tightly secured. Using this system, the cam timing and chain tension can be right where the engineers want it. If dehumidified heating is desired, turn on the air conditioner. They call me and say your car is ready but it was blah blah something else, I said did you check the timing chain they said no, I insisted they check cause I was coming up on 70,000 miles. Install the engine front cover to the engine.
He finally got everything together yesterday but now we can't get it to start. Just waiting on parts and timing tools to come in. Both need to be opened and closed with precision, hundreds of thousands of times. Apply silicone sealant to the areas shown in the figure. Move the drive belt auto tensioner up and down at full-stroke three times.
This is also a safety issue. Im at 22K miles and my speed 6 makes an audible knocking sound on boost and high rpm and occasionally will loose timing enough that the car looses all power and at that time I can hear the chain smacking the valve cover. You can definitely get them at a dealer but try stopping at a stereo shop they might be able to let you use one, it only takes about one minute to release the locks. Sorry let me clarify, the engine is turning, there is spark, there is fuel pressure at least I think so since the fuel pump spurts gas everywhere when I remove it , but its as if the fuel is not getting to the spark plugs for the engine to fire. When holding the camshaft on the cast hexagon, to prevent damage to the rocker arm, use the wrench at engine rear side as shown in the figure to secure a clearance between the cam. I figured 103,000km it was worth it. The extended warranty plan wants maintenance records and oil change records which I don't have.
Remove the nut shown in the figure and set the power steering pipe component aside. It is almost always located on the side of the engine block, between the oil pan on the bottom and the cylinder heads on the top. Any other information regarding this issue will be highly appreciated. Completely tighten the water pump pulley bolt to the specified torque. She lived in Phoenix and took the car into the dealership for the oil changes and no one mentioned to her that there could be a problem and to watch for any sudden noises or sluggishness in the car's engine.
I had both repairs done at the same time as timing chain requires removing valve cover thus giving access to cams. I even have an engine hoist at my shop. Its super-common for the non-dealer mechanic to do this. This code could be as simple as the oil level being low, but it could also be the result of a worn chain or actuator. Remove in the order indicated in the table. It may just save you some valuable time and needless aggravation.
If you have a flat tire, drive slowly to a level spot that is well off the road and out of the way of. Now I am not a mechanic but why would you ever put a plastic part around anything that heats up to the degrees of an engine. I have been without my car now for 5 days and who knows if they will even fix it if I get the maintenance records they wish. I loved this car but I am having serious reservations on ever buying another Mazda. However coverage under the program requires perfect documentation of all required maintenance with other stipulations. Can anyone give me an idea if 14 hours is really the book rate? When attempting to start the engine the engine seems to be turning at normal speed, there is no metal on metal clashing that I would expect to hear if the valves are being destroyed, and there is no gas smell in the spark plug wells after attempting to crank. Install a new O-ring to the O-ring installation groove of the engine front cover.
Well, I went for an oil change and found out it's a timing chain that needs to be replaced and I have an oil leak. Their focus is on safety-related issues. Had them do the work. The vehicle pulls in one direction. So I'm replacing chain, tensioner, both guides. The extended warranty plan wants maintenance records and oil change records which I don't have.
