Fellow Tuners,

Reading through all of the post, I wish I had known about all of you'll before. So real, so, genuine, so truthful ,so professional and so patient. Tuners I feeling to cry with joy, yes, lol

I have a BH 323F Mazda, local model with a B6 Engine.

Recently, I noticed I heard a "vooping, kinda suction sound when the ac compressor comes on. Mechanics and all kinda people say all kinda thing. I also realised the RPM would drop at times and I began to burn more gas.

Anyway, one person, "Tallboy" electrician from behind T&TECT in south said that the step up located on the throttle body is sticking. A mechanic took out the throttle body, took apart the step up, cleaned it and it work for a while and the "vooping" suction sound also dissaperard. Recently, it started happening again, we did the same cleaning but it seems that the step up has gone through.

I'm looking for the throttle body or the step up OR is there a possibility that the wire, jacks or sensors can be worn?

Need you'll help, advice and guidence. Post your replies, call 728-1081, leave me your number or email me.

Thanks

Make sure that the links ain't dead as well as that the sway bar bushings are nit busted. These also tend to be the usual culprits for this as well.

Were the links the same length? The sway bar touches the lateral arms if the links are just slightly longer.

Found some of the problems.....The careless mechanic shredded the threading on one of then linkages at the rear so it wasn't tight, then the bolt that tightens the ball joint to the spindle was shredded as well...still have to pull out the back shocks and check the lineup of the shock mounts....thanks for the info tuners. ..very helpful

Putting a bigger battery will not have any adverse effects but i dont think it will help your problem with the car cutting off. if your car cutting off you should check your fuel or air intake

What clunk? Did you change the rear sway? If you have the correct length links there should be no noise with a stock sway.

The stock sway is not stiff enough to break links so there may be some other issue at work. Stock links usually work fine in whatever brand the parts stores have.

Dude on the coolant issue start by changing your radiator cap and see if that helps if not then you probably have a blown head gasket or a stuck open thermostat on the end link issue try checking your sway bar brackets they might be bad causing excessive movement of the bar thus damaging the end links

Hi All, My Mazda 323 have been overheating and now it won't start. I changed the AC fan that seem to have burnt out, the hose connecting the radiator to the engine and the air flow sensor that what causing the car to lose power when accelerating. But the car still overheated and now it won't start for anything. Any suggestions?

Good day guys I have a Mazda Bh 2007 model. I have a lot of problems
1) my exhaust manifold I was told have a crack
2) transmission problems slow takeoff in drive takes long to accelerate (low power. As I read the post above I guess it's the air flow sensor). Also not hearing the normal selection of gears during acceleration. Indeed help guys pls guide me accordingly for this week I want to get a loan to start the restoration

Tranny may be in limp/failsafe mode, stuck on 3rd gear. Usually indicates a sensor or other tranny issue.

Good day guys I need your opinion on engine change I currently have a Z5 engine in my Mazda BH
I keep hearing ppl talking bout swap it for a SR20 but I am a bit skeptical about cross breading as they call it
Does the mount's lineup the same as the BH or will I have to get someone to welder?
And what about wiring does anyone have a diagram for that?
Does it make sense going SR20
Even tho a complete z5 is hard to get now. What you guys think.
