Also there is a sound that i here in the transmission box when i press the brakes.
#1842 of 2044 626 Rear Sway bar link set bolts frozen
Apr 02, 2005 (10:56 am)
I backed up against a rock after sliding off the road and snapped the sway bar links.
Looked simple enough to replace so I got the parts. Now I've spent the last 2 hours trying to remove the old sets. I got one upper off but the other three are frozen.
the other upper i can turn with a visegrip -- but can't get the allen/vise combination to loosen.
the lowers I can't seem to get steady enough leverage because the bar itself wants to move.
I've had the bolts wd40'd for 2 hours now. I've tap, tap, tapped until my ears hurt and wire brushed the threads to clean them. Still no luck.
Anybody have any suggestions? Is there a dremel attachement that'll cut nuts and bolts?
thank you all

can anyone tell me if it is common procedure to have a cylinder head shaved when replacing a head gasket. This mechanic put on a new head gasket only and there is water in the first 3 cylinders and only like 16 pounds of pressure. I have a mazda 626 1995 2.0 engine

It depends on if the head was warped from overheating of it the gasket surface was rough. In those cases, it's common to shave the cylinder head in order to get a smooth straight mating surface. If the gasket surface isn't straight and smooth, it will leak and cause problems. Sounds like your mechanic didn't take the time to properly check for this.

What model year are the cars (1990, 1995, 2002, etc) and are they manual or automatics?
