  1. While my car's fuel efficiency is down. Resonantly. And when stopped, the fuel smells coming. I'll do the engine tune-up and do the followings can any one can suggest good place to check all theses issues (I'm @ negambo area) . Need to check (have any injector leak, and fuel pressure of the fuel pump ) my car model Mazda bj5p YOM 2003 . changed air filter . changer oil and filter and oill. changed spark plugs.
  2. Hi Guyz How to find the type of spark plug that fits the car ? and Oll Brand ? ( Currently Using SAE40 Lanka Super plus Car mazda BJP (YOM2003 ).
  3. Im facing an issue in my BJ5P related to the transmission. About a month ago on the way to Kandy my transmission started giving trouble. I was driving a bit aggressive and whenever I wanted to accelerate the kick down didn’t take effect smoothly. There was a jerk when the kickdown came and on 2 occasions there was even wheelspin. When I was not hard accelerating still there was gear slip when going up gears, clearly there was a gap and a long engagement time. Also when braking/slowing down there was a noticeable jerk with a clunk sound when gears were downshifting and some wheel lock. After that I stopped to let the car cool down and the issue was gone so I went on my way. Again after another 30mins the problem came back. I was planning to go on 800km+ journey and didn’t want to risk it so came to Colombo stopping 5,6 times on the way. First thing I did was change atf (mazda m5) and it seemed that the issue was resolved upto now. I even went on the highway multiple times and there was no problem. However a week ago I was driving a bit aggressively within Colombo and the issue was back, but mainly slipping on upshifts. Today also the same thing happened in the morning with a bit of hard acceleration stints. The notable thing is that the issue comes only when there is some strain on the transmission and when it gets hot. There is no delay in engaging gears in the morning like most others have, N to D shift is almost immediate. Given that slipping when hot is usually a sign of bad ATF im a bit confused as to what to do. Do I change ATF again and fully clean the gearbox and replace filter ? or should I just give to nilwala for repair ? I am planning to take the car to nilwala but I want a little heads up on what to expect.
  4. HI All, Is there anyone know a place to buy a REAR BRAKE Caliper (Left) for BJ? I tried both Delkanda and Panchikawatta. But with no success. If someone have that part please contact me. Or is there anyone knows whether it(caliper) can be repaired or not?
  5. Hello everyone, I recently bought a pre-owned Mazda Familia BJ5P (YoM 2003) car. I'm a newbie to Mazda and also not much experienced in automatic drives.But I'm willing to get to know this car very well. First of all there are few things which I would like to get advice from you Mazda experts. The car has done 132000km(seems it's genuine) but the previous owner couldn't provide me with its proper service records. What would be the most appropriate services, Changing engine oil, filters, ATF etc?(The colour of ATF was quite good) The steering was a little too tight as if it was lacking power steering a bit. Wheel alignments and the power steering fluid level was OK. What might be the possible reasons for this? What is the function of the Hold button? Is it exactly the same as the OD on/off button on some other vehicles?(I could find a thread on AL on this hold button stuff, but the exact functioning of the "Hold" was not that clear to me) I got to know that this car has Mazda ZL engine. So is it ZL or ZL-DE? Is there any difference in those two?(I just found that it differs from the ZL-VE with variable valve timing) I would like to have an owner's manual and a workshop manual for this model.(I could find a 2003 Mazda Protege owner's manual but it was different in some ways, the engine was 1.6/2.0 there. Is it that Familia is the JDM and the Protege is US/European?) How could I get the exact owner's/workshop manuals for the Mazda Familia BJ5P? I would like to share the experiences and knowledge with Mazda Familia owners/experts and also willing to join with good Mazda/Familia clubs or forums if there are any. Thanks in advance.
  6. Hai I'm new to AL.does anyone have experience with Mazda bj5p RS? Parts? Resalebility? Gear box issues? Please help
  7. Hi All, Currently I'm using a Mazda Familia BJ5P (JDM, YOM 2000, facelifted) car as my daily office drive for nearly three years. I initially wanted to buy a FB15, but had to settled with BJ5P due to the limited budget. From the first day I fell in love with this car and in two words I can sum-up the value so far I got as "exceeding expectations". When consider the price I paid (1.7 mil in very early 2014) I'm more than satisfied with the comfort, handling/ driving pleasure, fuel economy, reliability etc. It never let me down so far - may be due to I'm doing the regular services properly and using carefully. I don't want to sell this car since at the moment I'm satisfied with it. Planned to sell it after 2 more years and odo is now reaching 120,000 km and timing belt to be replaced soon. Meanwhile now one of my office friends is suddenly selling his Belta (2008 model, 1300cc) looking for an upgrade before the coming budget. His Belta is in mint condition and he is the second owner. It is properly maintained, no accidents and carefully used, 73,000 km on odometer. He claims he can easily sell his Belta for 3.6 mil within couple of days. He would like to reduce the price around Rs. 50,000 - 60,000 for me and wait for few days if I'm willing to sell my BJ5P and buy his Belta. Also gave me a friendly advice; better to sell my current car now since it is already old, there will be a difficult time after this budget and after that finding a reliable, well maintained car is really hard and selling an old car is difficult. In my gut feeling (I'm not an expert in autos) I think this upgrade is worth for just above 3.5 mil since I know the car. My inner mind says use this opportunity, otherwise I will have a tough time later with selling my current car and hunting for a good car. I already had a test drive. What I really felt during driving is there is not much of different. Probably my current BJ5P is comfier and has better handling (may be I'm biased towards my current ride). What I understood was there is no big difference in driving pleasure/ comfort. Only thing I get is a newer car, better fuel economy and "Toyota badge" for resale in few years. Now he wants to know my decision. According to current market I think I would be able to sell my BJ5P around 1.9 mil - 2 mil. I don't want to go for a lease. I can manage this with a small personal loan and I already have a 1 mil FD in bank (this budget is not an issue, car is passed the test). I'm in a dilemma whether should I upgrade or not? When asking from other friends some says it is a waste of money if I'm upgrading without a need and some says that upgrade is worth and go for it, since it is a "Toyota" it will be like a FD (I'm not a fan of Toyota or any specific brand). And one of my relations said my current car is still in great condition and do the T belt repair and keep it for another couple of years, and instead of upgrading, he suggested to buy a block of land of few purches nearby his surrounding (in Homagama area). He said land value will be almost doubled in 2-3 years (I have no idea whether it is true or false). Please let me know your opinion with below options (I'm not an expert in automobiles, investments or financial planning. But I consider loans/ leases as headaches and disturb my peace of mind. I'm an average professional with an average income and it is sufficient to keep my simple, peaceful lifestyle). Option 1: Sell my current BJ5P car and upgrade to the Belta. (need to get a small personal loan here) Option 2: Keep my current car. Also keep extending the 1 mil FD in the bank and keep the peace in mind. Option 3: Keep my current car and purchase that land (need to get a small personal loan here) Thank you in advance.
