    Engine Tune Up

    Hi Mazda2, Did you replace your tyres? (Normally a tyre change would be around 40,000km) sometimes a significant drop in economy could be the result of a lower quality tyre being put on to your car (or tyre pressure not correct). Also check the exhaust line to see if there are any leaks. (highly doubt this though since the car is so new) Regards, Iced-T

    Gearbox - Lancer C12

    Hi Davy, I have been always using ceypetco 90 gear oil for this car. This was always the case on cold mornings with this reconditioned gearbox. These few days it has been quite cold in the mornings maybe thats why I feel it more. I dont recall anything like this with the original gearbox.

    Gearbox - Lancer C12

    When the car is cold, shifting from gear 1 to 2 and down shifting from 2 to 1 is difficult. Its slots in though but its just a bit difficult to engage (no grinding or anything) But when the car is driven for about 10 minutes it sorts its self out and the shifting is fluid. I am aware that the oil needs to be sloshed around a bit for the gears to get lubricated properly. But I was wondering shouldnt the gearbox oil have a minimum or optimum operating temperature? ( for example when the ignition is switched on the gearbox oil starts to warm up ). Regards, Iced-T

    Steering wheel vibration when idling

    Thanks Davy, I got this vibration as soon as I fixed a vibration on the drivers side door . Anyway there is no play on the steering wheel. The engine seems to be vibrating the normal amount I think. I tried recording it but on the video nothing can be seen. But ur right it cant be anything other than the mounts or the steering bushes. I hope i dont have to put the car in for more than a day. These are busy times.
  12. Hi all, I get excessive steering wheel vibration on idle, my idle rev is around 900Rpm (with aircon running). But when I give it a little bit of gas it stops (around 1000RPM). The vibration is only when the car is idling. My engine mounts are new. Any help is much appreciated. Iced-T

    Thermostat replacement

    Thanks, I will keep the system dismantled until i search for a replacement thermostat. should be about 3 or 4 hours. I am hoping this would not affect the properties of the coolant water mixture. Also will I require a gasket sealant to put on the thermostat housing when I close it up again?

    Thermostat replacement

    Hi .. I have just noticed that the thermostat on my car has stopped working. I want to remove it and get it replaced some time this week. The only issue is that I just filled in new coolant into the system (last week). Will I lose a lot of coolant when I remove the thermostat housing? Or should I drain the radiator into a bucket .. and just pour it all back in? Vehicle details : Lancer C12 , 4G15 engine. Thanks.
