Question about 2003 Mazda Mazda6
I have a mazda 6, 2004 with 103000 miles on it. A few weeks ago I started having a problem with the heater. When I stopped the heater would blow out cold air. Then all of a sudden upon starting the engine would rev as if someone had their foot on the gas peddle. The engine light came on and and the oil light. I stopped and checked the oil. There was no oil in the block. I replenished the oil and I was fine. Two days later on my way to work the car just stopped working. I had it towed to a garage and there was no oil in the car again. The oil filter had cracked. So I replaced that and then the car would not start again. It was put on a machine and it stated that the cam sensor needed replaced. So I replaced that and still not starting. Help
I hope you did not run it without oil. Did it overheat ? Try replacing the crank shaft sensor. It is located in the cylinder part of the the engine near the timing cover. If it overheated the temperature control sensor could have gone out too. And the Idle Position sensor. Sorry I had to tell you this. But I hope you did not blow the rings and head gasket.
