Question about 2005 Mazda 6
HI. My Mazda Tribute 1997 model was taken to a Mazda mechanics in Thailand for an annual checkup and the following day it developed a strange noise under the bonnet/hood. The noise is a complex multi dimensional sound like either grating melt disk or belt or perhaps escaping gas through a hose or fan. Its is both low and high pitched. The sound is coming from the mid to rear part of the engine on the driver's side. I am hestiate to take the car back to the Mazda shop because last year I paid Baht 18,000 to have the turbo (alternator) replaced only for my car to break down in the middle of no where a week later - be towed to a different Mazda shop and told that I had an old turbo that needed replacing for Baht 16,000. It turns out that the first shop had never replaced the turbo - simply recharged the battery but charged me for the new part!!!
As a girl living in Thailand and with the language barriers it has been a problem to get things fixed. So if anyone has any ideas that I could equip myself with before I head back to the Mazda mechanics - I would really appreciate it.
It sounds like they have forgotten to hook up a vacuum hose or something along that lines.... just a suggestion for you in the future... when you go to a shop to have a part replace... put a big scratch in the surface of it .... or even better take a felt pen and sign your name on it.... you'll know right away if the part was replaced or not. lift up the bonnet and listen to the noise... from the sounds of the mechanics in thailand it could be more then one thing.
