There may be rubber spacers on your springs to give the additional height, you can look for those and remove if necessary.

If it is a different shock or spring, it may get expensive.

Two things check your transmission mounting, and your air flow sensor, I blame by transmission for these same problems when was just that, just check to be sure

So fella's recently found out my air intake hose was cracked...was not finding a replacement anywhere
so i fixed it up as best as i could. It had split by the folds, got a narrower hose and joined the two halves together with glue and some duct tape for extra measure. Car stills idles a little rough but doesn't cut off anymore, but i noticed when the engine warms up, the exhaust lets out white smoke.

Don't know if the cause is the air intake system or if its something totally different like the head gasket or the valve seals. But this began to occur immediately after the air intake hose cracked. The engine runs and does not overheat...but sometimes i hear some pinging sounds just when it starts to let off the white smoke.

you need a compression test to verify leaks
white smoke when the engine is hot could be leaking head or bad rings

I may need to get an Evaperator fort mazda BH where and how much it may cost? My AC is not cooling I went to ultra cool and they couldn't find the leak so dey charge me $1034. To gas up and put a dye in the system. I went by another guy in curepe he said he need to do a pressure and it seems like the Evaperator mite me leaking. Wat are you'll thoughts on this?

You just need your Certified Copy. I never had to use the receipts for any sale of vehicles I had before. As long as it is transferred to your name already then that it what matters really.

Afternoon All,

Car Specs:
Mazda 323 BJ, ZM engine

Problem:
So i removed the battery but re-installed it incorrectly, i connected the +ve lead to the -ve terminal.
Now my car wont start.

Troubleshooting:
I checked all the fuses in the fuse panel inside the car (under the bonnet lever).
The engine fuse was not blown.
I then checked the fuses in the engine bay but you cannot tell if these are blown cause they are not transparent like the other fuses.

Any ideas on how to check these?
Or should i just take out the engine fuse and replace it?
Any help would be appreciated.

Hey..so i checked all the fuses in the engine bay except the one 100 Amp engine fuse.
i missed it completely because the labeling was confusing, and also because the head was broken off and an electrician jumpered it. It was not one of your conventional fuses - like the ones you push in and pull out, it actually had two bolts holding down this fuse. i had to remove the entire fuse box just to take it out (see pic). Thanks for the advice tho.

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

due to lack of greasing or just worn over time, there's a rubber sleeve that fits on the pin that wears
