#1835 of 2547 Clicking Noise from Front when Applying Brakes
Aug 20, 2005 (11:27 am)
Baffling problem with my 2000 Mazda 626 ES V6. After accelerating and when the brakes are applied, there is a very loud "click" from the front of the car. I've had two mechanics look at the problem. The noise went away when the brakes were adjusted. After a few thousand miles, it returned. I had the pads replaced (even with 50% life still remaining) and the noise went away. Then, a few thousand miles later, the click reappeared. I also notice that there is less brake dust on the front wheels than there used to be (and more on the rear wheels). This model has 4-wheel discs. The mechanics told me that the front end looks safe, but the loudness of the click tells me that something could be wearing badly.

Did you ever have your '90 DX looked at for possible problems with the spark plugs, wires or distributor cap? Mazda claims that I need a tune up, but they have already taken me for over $300 bucks stating that my fuel injectors an induction system was very dirty!

I'd get the fuel injectors cleaned. Think it costs around $100.
I would also replace the fuel filter.... did this myself....cost $13 had to undo 5 screws..... 1/2 hour work...... same car as yours..... 130K miles the old filter was probably working at 40%.....
My mechanic could never get a code on the engine light.......... I had the light go on off for 2 years! Now it's gone!

Thanks for the insight. I had some more info. on this problem. My friend has a Honda civic which gave him the same problems like mine with the engine light. He got it checked and his spark plugs were misfiring causing the light to go on. I had this problem earlier when oil leaked into the spark plugs causing them to misfire and I had changed the engine gasket. This also for some time reduced the idling in the car. However at that time the engine light never came on. Do you think this could be the problem as well? Should I get the injectors cleaned or replace plugs or both?

Hey ITZME when you look at your air filter box does it close down fully over the filter , not leaving any corners exposed. Mine leaves the front left ,passenger side corner exposed by about 1/2 inch and I can see the orange top of the OEM air filter exposed. It was so hot when I was in Greece that I could not stand to work on it. I am going back soon could you see if yours closing fully over filter ?
The filter housing part is 23-6731 in case you have a print out from mazda or anything. Just the plain old filter housing . I hope yours is the same as mine I know Mazda made a few changes mid year and some are different than others
#1843 of 2547 1994 mazda transmission leak...any suggestions?!
Sep 02, 2005 (4:13 pm)
I have a 1994 Mazda 626, which is now on its 3rd transmission (the original blew up in 1998, the second in 2003) Now, lucky me, it has a leak at the seal between the engine and transmission...that is what the mechanic told me ( i know a slight bit about cars, not enough to fix big troubles...can't remember what seal he called that). I was wondering if anyone had success in using anything to repair these without taking out the seal( ie without the huge repair bill! ) I read about using a product on the outside of the seal called Right Stuff gasket maker that is put on outside of seal. I don't expect a permanent fix, but was hoping to get this car through the winter, or at least for a few months until I can afford to buy a better used car. Anyone have any other ideas? If not, does anyone think I can keep driving and topping up the fluid for a few months? It is not a giant leak, still shows full even with the little spot on the driveway.

I replaced the transaxle seals and they were not very expensive. My tranny threw a spot of oil when hot and downshifting under load. I ran the car like that for 5 months and my auto tranny rebuilder told me it would last for a least that long as long as I didnt go faster than 80 mph and punch it hard. He said change them at my leisure , just keep an eye on it.They are left and right transaxle seals if thats the ones he told you. They frequently go according to the Haynes manual I have Do not overfill tranny as that will cause undue pressure on it.
Is it a four clylinder? I have the bills here the parts were FW 50-27-238 and list price was 6.60 each pre discount at Mazda dealer. It cost me less than $45 to have them installed and if you can find a decent mechanic to do them it might pay to go the correct route.
If you have the 4 banger could you look at my post above yours #1842 and answer the question I have posed there.
Thx Good Luck PGP
