It's always best to go OEM (Southern Sales), that's if the 4wd uses the same as the fwd. I would personally get OEM & fill with polyurethane

Greetings fellow mazda owners I've a 2002 mazda familia wagon zl engine i'm experiencing some transmission issues.On mornings when i start (warm up engine) the car gives problems to pull off.Even though the rpm is high the pulls off with no power.Problem #2 there is a delay when the car goes from park to drive it hesitates a bit then pull off.No problem when reversing.What could be the problem and what can be the solution.

Hey Mazda peeps I'm posting for a friend.
He Has a Mazda 323 GLX with a B14 engine in it. Can he use another type of front spindle instead of the stock 323 spindle?
Second Question. With this same modification would the fuel gauge (instrument panel) correspond with the consumption of the B14 engine or will he have to use a b14 gas tank in the 323 car to correspond with the fuel gauge?

On the gas tank, it makes no difference. Half of a 323 tank of gas is still the same half tank regardless of engine.

Your gas gauge does not reflect mileage. It may seem to finish faster, but that's not the fault of the tank or gauge, its the fyaz being geed.

Woke up two days ago n my 323 wouldnt start it was only tumbling very slowly then it stopped tumbling altogether. i was still getting all the lights and my alarm was active. first thing i assumed it was the battery as i had that happen once before, a jump start had me rolling again. i went ahead and got a jump start no change so i brought a new battery a 560 Ca rocket.now im only getting headlights high and low,no hazards im wondering if the alarm needs to be reset or if it could be a combo of things
like a blown fuse,cam/crankshaft sensor,blown brain from the jump start...? i new to this thing so alyuh help me nah!!!! when i turn the key to the ignition i not getting anything. i never had a miss in my engine i never cut off in traffic nothing the only thing i had was a rough idle but i assumed the mounts was bad. d idle needle used to be moving real slightly up and down dont know if that mean anything.

Ok, one thing you can try is see if your starter is stuck and give it the good old fashion few knocks. It is located under your Throttle Body.

Next thing is when last you changed those Crank and Cam sensors. Good rle of thumb is to change them every 100K Km, keep your old ones around if they still good as spares to bail you out of a situation. You never know.

As for your idle hunting, you may need to take down your throttle body and clean it out good with some carb spray. Clean the TPS (*Do not Remove it from the TB!*) The IAC (Idle Air Control) can also be cleaned on the TB but that one you can remove and give it a clean. It is the part underneath the TB held on with screws. They might be a beyotch to remove too, take off the IAC and clean that beyotch till it is Gray looking.

The large bushings are not that cheap but they last really long and worth it. Your only other option is to install Superpro or Whiteline Bushing Kit. The latter costs a little less and gives you a nice ride quality. There are some of the guys already using it here with no complaints. And would make a hell of a lot more sense than Gangnam Style Cradles. Cheap ting no good!

Raybestos and Moog are top notch brands and great OE replacements. Even if they buss price if you order online, it will still be cheaper than what you will pay here for it IF you can even get it here.

I installed the whiteline bushing kit and one of the large bushings burst :shock: . I going back oem . The Whiteline kit is nice. The handling is superb but they not designed for our good roads. I also have the 555 balljoints installed. No complaints about those as yet...

I want to know if I need bump stops when installing front and rear shocks.
I own a Mazda 323 BJ model, and the shock absorber boots I bought are similar to this

Even though that has a solid rubber piece on it, do I still need these

Image

If I do, where can I buy them? I've called numerous shops nationwide and they either have for Nissan and Toyota but not for Mazda.

those are bumpstops, they are needed for optimum operation of your struts. If you do not use them the ride will be a bit rough and you stand the chance of bottoming your struts. I got from ss and also steve changa in balmain has.
