    i have replaced my cv when i did bearings...i put a brand new cv complete from end to end......thanx

    as far as low miles from brngs - some are tightened to torque specs, some tightened, then back-off 1/4 turn and pin nut, so just depends - some bearings are self contained, sealed, and tightened to specs, and some are concave, "open" and packed - did you over tighten axle nut? or undertighten (Not to torque specs, or above?).... - very important...and will determine life of bearing - eg too tight or too loose = very short life. The service manual for the vehicle usually covers the bearing/hub tightening and torquing process as well as any other requirements....any help???

I have a 1997 mazda rustler 160i when the motor is hot or just standing in the sun its does not start in the morning and evening its starts no problem only when hot has this problem what can it be


An ignition coil is more than likely your problem. When the car is not running pull one spark plug wire and a plug and insert plug into the wire hold plug end on ground area. Have someone crank engine and check for spark. If no spark, replace ignition coil.

Wheel hub assembly front 1997 sebring


  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the front tire and wheel.
  3. Remove the steering knuckle assembly, as described previously.
  4. Remove the bolts attaching the hub/bearing assembly to the steering knuckle.
  5. Remove the hub/bearing assembly from the front of the steering knuckle. The bolt-in front wheel bearing used on the vehicle is transferable to a replacement steering knuckle, if the bearing is in serviceable condition. If the bearing will not come out of the steering knuckle, it can be tapped out using a soft-faced hammer.

  1. Thoroughly clean all parts, including the hub/bearing assembly mounting surfaces on the steering knuckle.
  2. Install the replacement hub/bearing assembly onto the steering knuckle, aligning the bolt holes of the bearing flange to the knuckle.
  3. Install the attaching bolts and tighten evenly to make sure the bearing is square to the face of the steering knuckle. Tighten the attaching bolts to 80 ft. lbs. (110 Nm) on Cirrus, Stratus, Sebring convertible and Breeze, or 65 ft. lbs. (88 Nm) on Sebring coupe and Avenger.
  4. Install the steering knuckle assembly, as previously described.
  5. Install the tire and wheel.
  6. Lower the vehicle and check for proper operation.

Hi Gerrie1974-

WildBill49 here......Not knowing the specific year and version of your Mazda, I cannot give you a specific part at fault, but I can help you. I am assuming we're talking about an electronic distributor single coil ignition system

If the spark is weak directly out of the coil (with a known good coil hooked up with correect polarity), then the problem is in the spark trigger module... There is a variety of designs, but the basic components remain the same. This is the part of the ignition system that replaces the breaker points. It consists of two parts - a magnetic spark trigger sensor, and a spark signal amplifier/controller. these are sometimes combined into one ignition module.

Replace this module, and spark from the coil should be strong! If it is still weak, reverse the two wires to the coil.

Weak spark at the plug wire with the above good indicates distributor cap/rotor replacement time...

Gerrie, I hope this is what you are looking for, best of luck, and if you feel my advice worthy, please rate it!!!

Thanx-
-WB
