Battery for 1997 Mazda 323 Astina 5dr hatch

I bought a battery for my 1997 Mazda 323 Astina 5dr hatch. Can i place a battery with cold crank start of 420 when my car manual says it requires 380 cold crank start. The battery is a 12V battery and is the same as the mazda model 1990-1996 and 2000-2005?

It's fine to use a battery with a higher cold crank rating than original. Consider the rating in the manual to be a minimum requirement. You'll be fine as long as the physical dimensions and terminal placement are compatible with your car. The battery manufacturer's guide should tell you which battery fits your car.

1988 mazada 323 hatch back won't start. starter is good. battery, connections are good. when i turn the key i here the start click. i took it to autozone to be tested and came back good.

Could it be the engine is locked up? Try turning crank with socket wrench each way a little to see if locked. If so, remove all spark plugs and try again. Still locked?

Trying to find out what type of transmission oil I need for a Mazda Astina 323 (03) manual gearbox. Engine 1.8 litre

In the manual it says that you need a 80W90 oil but if you live in a place where winters are really cold you should use a 75W90 one.
