#111 of 120 Help with Part question
Feb 26, 2011 (3:23 pm)
I slid my 2007 Mazda CX-9 into a curb with the rear drivers side tire. It bent the arm that the lower end of the shock mounts to. Any idea on what the part for that arm is?
#114 of 120 2007 Mazda CX-9 Evaporator Drain Location

My evaporator drain line is clogged. Any input as to how to clear (including how to find the line) will be greatly appreciated.
You can hear the sound of water hitting the fan as you turn left.

My local mechanic has just had two CX-9s in the past three months with oil gelling problems. Have others had this problem? He recommended synthetic oil changes every 4 months instead of 6 to protect the engine- a costly expense but better than losing an engine. We drive many short trips and fewer total miles than most, so use synthetic. (Oil gelling in our Sienna, and the cost of the recommended additive led our shift to using synthetic oil.)

I recently went back to the dealer who sold us our 09 CX-9 to help my daughter buy a 11 CX-7. Dealer told us Mazda now specifies synthetic oil for all its SUVs. So, maybe that gelling issue is a trend and a problem worth addressing with the more expensive oil.

I need new tires as well for our CX-9 (FWD). Live in Minnesota and the last 2 years have been terrible driving with our original factory tires (67,000 miles and going). We obviously have lasted longer than some of the other posts. My question is has anyone purchased Falken Ziek 912s? Lots of posts for Yoko Parade Specs. Just wondering if the Falkens are good tire for winter driving.
