Problem with my Mazda Atenza Sport Wagon, GY3W Engine?

\015 My car, a 2002 Mazda Atenza Sport Wagon, GY3W L3 Engine of 2260cc is producing a weird sound. It is a crackling sound that comes after I have driven for some time and engine is hot. The sound never comes when the engine is cold. I have uploaded the sound at http://www.lubanga.com/temp/mazda_atenza_gy3w_wierd_engine_sound.mp3 if you want to hear it. One mechanic said it is the Engine timing chain that is faulty, while another said it was due to not having enough power caused by faulty plugs, etc. At first it had completely lost power, but when I changed plugs, it gained power but sound still comes. Can anyone please advise as I'm getting desperate.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Hello, Since buying my mazda 323f 1.8 sport (year 2000 model, I keep experiencing an intermittent fault with firing. When I first bought the car and a day or two after filling the fuel tank, I would start the car only to find the engine firing on two or three cylinders. This initially lasted a couple of minutes and sometimes switching the engine off then on again cured it. However as time has gone on, it is happening more and more often and the other day the problem kicked in as I was already

My 2004 Mazda 6 Sport Wagon starts with a cloud of white smoke. It burns oil like there is no tomorrow and the dealership tells me I need a new engine because this one's dead (66,000 km). They want $2200 for a used engine for a total of $4500 with labour. Does that sound normal to you?


It is too much. The cost is high since it is at dealer. Go to an independent shop it will cost about $2400 with an old engine (50K miles) plus labor (labor costs around $750) with one year warranty. ... 2004 Mazda 6

On1989 Mazda B2600 manual ute. Intermittent problem. Gearchange mechanism occasionally locks,preventing gearstick from selecting any gear. This can be remedied by stopping engine and selecting gear while engine is stopped, and then starting engine in gear with clutch depressed. Sometimes gearchange locks while driving, and this is initiated by slight metallic clunk from vicinity of gearbox. Is this a linkage problem?

Mazda 626 Hi thanx so much for all your help it is a 4 cylinder. Before this all occured I had my exhaust pipe fixed and a tune up on the car. When I left the shop (a different mechanics) the check engine light starting coming on and off and has continued to do so. When the guy who did the work read the code it said there was a problem with the O2 sensor but found nothing wrong with the engine. Is it possible the work he did could have caused this (the leak) problem since there was no engine lig


Very possible that the repair they did caused the o2 problem. The only codes u get for "leaks" are emissions related. I'd like to know the EXACT code he got, if u can find that out, I can help u even more. Thanks\015\012\015\012Chris ... 1995 Mazda 626

I am interested in purchasing a 2002 Subaru Outback wagon that I test drove yesterday. It has very low mileage (56,000) and appears to be well-maintained and in good shape. However, my husband noticed a wet spot on the engine and a smell that he identified as coolant. Now I'm reading lots of reviews where people say they had problems with the head gaskets in that model. The dealer says the engine passed their inspection, but I'm worried I might end up with a real (and expensive!) problem on


On the 2002, head gaskets were the subject of a recall. They can go bad almost anytime, usually after 30k, but a good mechanic can take care of it, especially if they torque the mounting bolts properly, but it can take a good number of mechanic hour ... 2002 Subaru Outback
