#1761 of 2861 Re: My brand new 6 is stalling at stop lights [angelamc]
Jul 13, 2005 (12:38 pm)
My Mazda6 diesel, april 2003, 145500 Km, began to stall around 90 000 Km !
In the beginning, it happens once a mouth maybe. Then twice. Lately and finally today it stalls all the time. Today I got enough, and went on line to see if other had the same problem. And it seems to bee.
The dealer has twice run a computer test and it shows nothing. They say itīs
the main pump (2000 $), but other specialists says it not. I have been told it could be "the low pressure diesel pump"(700 $), "the low pressure diesel indicator"(1800 $), "Engine computer" (3400 $). If I were sure I would pay one of them! In the garage they say, that if itīs not the part they change that fails, the canīt take it back!!
The car has been serviced every 20 000 km up till 100 000 at Mazda, but in a way, I have controlled. Just oil change with filter here, and then brakes there, and so on. Not the "Mazda" way with wind screen washer, controlled lights, oiling the doors and so on. Now they claim, I haveīnt followed the Mazda program and no
Now iīve read, it could be a TB problem. I donīt know really what to do now.

I've noticed this summer that when I depress or release my clutch pedal I hear a slight creaking sound, much like the noise an old rusty storm door spring makes when expanding/contracting. It seems to come more from the engine compartment as it's most noticeable when I'm going slowly next to a wall like at a fast food drive-thru window. Not sure if this is similar to what you're hearing or not.

*raises his hand slowly*
Yeah, I've got the creaky "storm door spring" clutch too! Not sure if it's the same problem as LHM, but dog, your description nailed it!
Haven't worried about it too much. Probably because it's still under warranty, and I guess I'm just attributing it to the heat/humidity that summer brings.
But I could be wrong...
#1764 of 2861 Interior Cloth
Jul 14, 2005 (11:21 am)
I have a 2004 Mazda6 with tan interior cloth. Recently it rained, and after it stopped raining I opened up my back passenger door and some water dripped on the seats, leaving a water stain. I tried removing it with some cloth cleaner & warm water, but it just made the water stains larger (from the cloth). Any suggestions or answers on how to fix this? Thank You!
#1765 of 2861 Thinking about Sirius Sattelite in a Mazda6i...
Jul 15, 2005 (9:45 am)
I am thinking of getting Sirius Sattelite radio, probably a JVC portable for my 2003 Mazda 6i. If any of you out there had one installed, how does it look? I am concerned about keeping the car looking nice and a clean install.
#1766 of 2861 Cooling Fan Continues to Run
Jul 16, 2005 (10:04 am)
2003 Mazda 6s, 28,000 miles.
I have a similar but different problem with my cooling fan. The fan will run for 2-3 minutes after I turn the car off. At first it was during hot days, but now it is all the time. The temperature gage does not indicate an increased temp.
This happened about 10,000 miles ago, I had the dealer take a look when I had one of the recalls repaired and the dealer told me "they adjusted the sensor". Well it's back, and I have another recall notice (about 10 months old) that needs to be taken care of.
#1767 of 2861 Tire and break wear
Jul 16, 2005 (10:08 am)
2003 6s, 28,000 miles
After just 28k miles, my tires seem to have a lot of wear, aprox. 1/8" tread left. I have rotated the tires twice (10k and 20k miles).
I am now starting to hear a little squeak from the breaks.
Anyone else replaced breaks at less then 30k miles?

I am considering Sirius because Howard Stern is supposed to go over to Sirius next year.
