They finally admitted there was a problem with the timing chain, causing a leak in the oil which put sludge in the engine. I ended up purchasing te part from Mazda but the bolt didn't come with it. We have made several attempts over the years to get any of these done with zero success. Seeping from around oil pressure sending unit. I'm finding it hard to get assurances of which item is which based on the line diagram.
When I call them today they said no such kind of recall. The car then began to turn into oncoming traffic as a result of losing control of the car. . That coupled with a slight gouge on the face meant the oil could force its way past. Most engines eventually develop seepage past gaskets. And 2 because the oil cartridge and drain screw were tread locked on so well I stripped out the drain screw and couldn't get the cartridge off.
It's that or replace the cooler I guess. I'm going to go the create-a-gasket kit route. I have a painter friend that is a mechanic as his main job. Mazda needs to take responsibility for this before people get stranded on the road. I have an oil leak from this gasket that puts me at risk for an engine blowout. The steering wheel, the seats, the door handles, the mirrors, everything. So they saw a problem and installed a ventilation kit but now that is doing the same thing there is not a problem.
How did everything turn out where you able to get it to work. When I tried to pull over and put the car in park, it wouldn't shift into gear, so I pushed the parking break, and it finally stopped. Sorry I didn't respond sooner. All that is left of the car, is just the metal frame, and the engine. Hell of a first post,Sorry about that The aftermarket gasket should solve the issue. It's had multiple oil leaks. I just did this last Saturday.
Found this on ebay, looks like its the right part, considering buying it, will update if I do and it works. However coverage under the program requires perfect documentation of all required maintenance with other stipulations. I bought my cooler from ford for 174. We have changed the oil regularly and it still does it. The engine rattles everytime you crank the car and then goes away. Then, I saw part of the engine fall out of the bottom of the car, on fire, and burn into the street.
Recently had the oil changed in my 2008 Mazda Cx-7. Found this on ebay, looks like its the right part, considering buying it, will update if I do and it works. I'd have to make a new coolant hose, but that's hardly a problem. I'm just attempting to confirm with the parts guy. The tire cause damage to the axle wheel, and other parts of the car and engine as described by smith haven Mazda, where car is currently being repaired. My recommendation is to have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, add oil dye to trace the location of the leak.
How much is it leaking? I ended up purchasing te part from Mazda but the bolt didn't come with it. I went back to the dealership and told them that a car under 5 years old with less than 50k miles on it shouldn't make that noise. Other issue is I have spent 7 thousand dollars in repairs on this car. The dealer is just going with a new cooler to save time for the tech and make a bit more profit. More performance parts to come once my stock parts quit breaking. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. We had to coast into the next exit.
It is not easy to get in there and tighten much down. Also of interest, on the line diagram of the Mexican breakdown is an oil cooler deletion plate. I took it finally to auto zone for a free engine diagnosis to get a print out and now the emissions valves are showing faulty. It's not a part that I personally would risk unless someone here can vouch for its reliability. The cooler is a simple block that allows coolant to come in close proximity of the oil. The lights fill with water after washing or if it rain causing the headlights to short out and blow the bulbs. The contact stated that the engine stalled.
