#4027 of 4030 1995 Millenia great condition but bad engine
Sep 03, 2012 (9:55 pm)
So our little creampuff has been sitting for about 5 years. Our daughter failed to pull over when an engine light came on, stalled a few miles later, we had it towed. Mazda dealer told us we needed a new engine, but I didn't get the impression, from their inability to answer questions, that they even looked at it. Now I'm wondering whether to repair this car (~50K mileage on the car) for a new driver of age, or sell the car as is. I hear this model with the S designation is rare. Otherwise the car is in great shape, looks new. Any suggestions on tradeoffs, what to do and cost?

My 1997 Millenia with the 2.5 is leaking oil from the camshaft seal on the rear head, passenger side. It appears as if the seal itself is missing. I can see the oil coming out, and feel the cam turning with my finger. How hard is the seal to put in? What needs to be removed and replaced to accomplish installation of a new seal? Thanks!

We had a problem with the engine light coming on and when checked it indicated that one thing needed replacement, then aftter a very short time, the check engine light came back on, and when we hooked it up to the computer, it indicated another thing needed to be replaced. Then, after a short time the check engine light came back on and this time the indication was to replace the part we had just replaced. We finally got the computer replaced (with a rebuilt computer) and that solved the problem.
Hope you get a fix that doesn't cost you too much! Good luck!!

There's a guy who's going to replace the bad supercharger on the 2000yr 6cyl supercharged miller engine, but my brother and I cant seem to find replacement supercharger gasket kits anywhere. Someone mentioned around the garage that that's oem and more than likely only found through the dealership. NAPA, autozone etc. etc. all say they dont carry them. Anyone have any clue where we can find/order a whole new gasket/seal kit? Whats in there now is blown and leaking badly, and dont want to replace the supercharger just to piut the bad gaskets and seals back in. any leads or info would greatly be appreciated.
