SOURCE: gearbox oil

there is a pan at the bottom of the transmission that you can drain the fluid from.... you'll need to get a new gasket and it's a good idea to change the filter at the same time. usually you can buy that in a kit that includes both... most automatics don't have a drain hole. but be aware that you have to make sure that that is the correct transmission fluid for the tranny.
also realize that draining the pan and changing the filter is good maintenance but there is still a large amount of flud in the torque converter and transmission cooler.

I'm not sure how advisable it would be to mix the two types of fluid

changing the filter might be a better option... also when you do that there is a small magnet in the pan ... it catches any small metalic flakes as the bands wear.
and while you have the pan off you can adjust the bands... you'll need a manual to make suire that is done properly... that is if that transmission requires adjustment.... as far as i know the new electronic transmissions don't need to be adjusted.

SOURCE: Oil leak from a Mazda Bongo

Are you sure you are leaking oil? Rotary's are designed to consume oil. How much oil depends on how you drive. Oil is injected into the engine to lubricate the seals. It is normal for a rotary to consume oil. Make sure it stays full, I usually check every 1200-1500 miles or so. The Renesis engine in the RX-8 uses less oil than the previous Atkins 13b's found in RX7's. I believe I have used about a quart of oil in 8000 miles or so and that is with aggressive driving habits. The best way to maintain a rotary's oil consumption is to check in between oil changes and fill as needed. Get yourself a factory service manual for detailed info on your RX-8. I got mine from www.promanuals.net for about $20. The best tool I've bought so far my Rotary.

SOURCE: Mazda V6 gas engine no radiator and coolant leaks but keeps on losing its contents causing overheating

A mazda bongo v6 engine has 4 fans, two are located on the radiator, one is just under facing engine by the belts. then the other one is not visible because it is inside the air con system. so the a/c one is nothing to do with engine cooling.

You might try ebay. That said, here are some links to investigate:

Genuine Mazda Parts Shop by Mazda Model

https://www.amayama.com/en/genuine-catalogs/mazda/bongo

https://www.partsworld.co.nz/parts/mazda/bongo

Here are links which include Bongo clubs. You can figure one of them would know where parts are.

I have a 2003 Mazda 6i. I backed my car put today and there was oil leaking from the front end of the car and it continues to leak. What do do you think could be going wrong with my car?


DO NOT DRIVE IT UNTIL THE CAUSE IS DISCOVERED, MAZDA ENGINES ARE EXPENSIVE.
If it is just an oil leak from a loose oil filter , or a holed oil filter all you need to do is replace it. If the drip is from the sump plug it might need tightening or replacing. You might need to replace the sump pan gasket which is not a difficult job. If it is the sum pan becoming holed this is an easy repair. Might be dripping from the engine, this could be expensive.
It might be gearbox oil , this too would need immediate attention. Of course it might be from the powert steering pump .

Whatever it is, if the amount of oil is noticeable then your vehicle probably needs immediate attention

May seem like a slight over reaction but in the last couple of months I have become aware of several mazdas with failed engines.

Replace the radiator cap with the proper temp range.Check the rubber gasket on the cap used now.If the cap is not high enough pressurewise,temperature will force the coolant out.Rigger sayreplace the radiator cap with the proper pressure cap for that engine/body design combination.
