Mcdevito75 here, That is a heavy duty job even for a good, good weekend mechanic, The truth is, as you know, you can run into a dozen problems that can and will leave you haveing to tow your vehicle to the shop. First you would need the TOOLs in American and Metric sizes as both American and Metric Nuts and Bolts are included on your Mazda, Then a Hydraulic jack that can hold at least 1 corner of the Mazda off the ground and--be able to with-stand the rocking motion as you did the job, Then you"d have to be concerned with parts, suppose you get the wrong parts, suppose you find a frozen or broken part, such as a brake hose, now you would have to bleed the brake system too. It"s very smart you are willing to do your own brakes BUT EVEN WISER TO KNOW, TO MANY PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE JOB. BEST BET, look for a sale on Brakes with-in you area, The tools, time and effort even if the job went smoothly, would cost about the same as the shop. Look for a sale, and have the shop do your brakes.

I am in the market to buy a used 2008 mazda tribute. I have been hearing things about needing special tools to fix the car. Is this true? Are the tools expensive? Also is the engine an interference or...


1. Typically Mazda builds engines with very close tolerances therefore they are HIGH interference engines.
2. Every car manufacturer has specialty tools that are needed. This includes all foreign and domestic.
3. Any tool that is REQUIRED to repair a car will not be cheap because the manufacturer does not want you tinkering with it. Therefore they engineer it to require the tool.

My 2006 Mazda Tribute makes a pulsating noise when I'm almost at a complete stop. Front brakes have been replaced at dealer but noise has returned.


If you have drum brakes in back instead of disc brakes, that could be your problem. Very common noise with drums. Pads, springs, could be sticking, or pistons if it is disc brakes
