Then later was also leaking oil. I showed them the video, and they replaced it. The second time was around 65k miles. Coolant in the cylinder, oil, and exhaust gas in the cooling system. Got to the end of the row and stopped. The manufacturer was not notified of the failures. If they went by what every jerk on the street said they'd be giving out new engines left and right.
She fought it to the shoulder of us route 40 North of baltimore, leaving her in a very dangerous situation. But I am going to point my finger at the poor design. The contact was able to get the battery jumpstarted and drove to North frontier auto where the codes were cleared. The contact owns a 2007 Mazda Cx-7. My daughter and her child could have been injured. However, a blanket answer for most model Mazda's is that they contain radios that are removed the same way ford radios are. Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of the tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not World Mechanics.
Mazda corporation has been notified of all reports I have made, and I didn't know of this site to report until recently. I want my motor fixed by Mazda at Mazda's expense since there are so many complaints and issues with these vehicles and Mazda knows about it and still doesn't want to make things right. Ac broke, arm joint has be change, both roller changed more then two times. Even on vehicles that have been maintained by their dealerships. All and all, you're right, an easy, low investment test. I'm partially guilty of not making a big scene as well which I may have to.
The manufacturer was notified of the issue and advised the contact to take the vehicle to a Mazda dealer. The first time was covered by warranty, but only after I produced the records to show the oil had been changed regularly. It seems like the timing chain is stretching. Thanks for the time in looking into this matter. Mazda has acknowledged the vvt problems in a 'special service program¿ but, according to owners, has denied warranty coverage in some cases. The contact stated that the check engine warning indicator illuminated again. June 9 I lost all cold air and done acceleration.
Also, while driving, the contact smelled a burning odor throughout the vehicle and noticed smoke coming from the hood. They did turbo work 4K miles ago? I told them to look again, harder, this time. We opened the trunk, felt around to see if it was hot and to see if we smell anything. Almost burnt my house also as it was sitting in driveway and couldnt be moved. Wasn't a problem till recently, either, which alerts me to some 'event' happening.
Hope someone can bring this flawed design engine to light before someone or a family is killed in a major accident where their car leaves them stranded in the middle of a highway like I-95. Mazda is claiming same engine sludge is cause of failure of numerous timing chains, turbos, vvt actuators etc. As soon as we drove off, not 2 minutes in, when driver said the gas petal felt weird, it dropped from 50 to 30 to 20mph and we heard a light drilling noise. Just had the turbo seals and timing chain done last time in the shop 3500 miles ago Thanks in advance! The motor started running hot and losing power and I shut it off. The vehicle was returned to the dealer where they stated that they repaired the timing chain.
I feel that if they have identified the problem they should tell consumers about it if your driving on the freeway and all of a sudden the car looses power it could cause an accident. It's had multiple oil leaks. But the service bulletin says it can be fixed due to my complaint. Spouse wont let me operate car any longer in fear it will break down causing accident. Leaving her sitting on a extremely busy section of road with my 2 year old son in the back seat as people are flying off an entrance ramp from aberdeen proving ground. Mazda tech says there is a sludging problem therefore voiding the warranty. Something should be done to have Mazda compensate all owners for defectice vehicles.
I have taken pristine care of my vehicle as I have always. That's my thought as well but it's tough to get really assertive with a tech unless you're really sure on something since they see cx-7s every day. Thank you for watching us! I mean, if it's burning that much oil, what else could it be non-compression related if the Turbo seals were just done 3. I have always put premium gas in my vehicle, regular oil changes, and had my vehicle serviced at a Mazda dealership to make sure it was taken care of properly. Dealer told us that it's the timing chain which is the engine now.
So we'll see -- play the game this time and really get mad if they try and pull funny business if it fails their test. They should have swapped it. Timing chain went at 62k miles, just out of warranty. It has failed twice and been replaced under warranty. I still owe on the vehicle and the cost to repair is well over the blue book value of the car.
