If mazda won't do anything about it i dought you will find anyone who can, seeing its got to come from mazda before anything can get done about the problem. Do you know of anyone else that has had the same problem? Is there another trans. that will fit in your truck from another manufacture like toyota or something like that. You can try a salvage yard they have interchange books maybe you can find a different trans. that will interchange with yours.

Hi, when i'm coming off the third and the second gear mainly the 2nd gear it makes a clanking noise

My first thought here is your drive shaft u joints, but only because I've been stranded more than once by these. The higher torque of second will definitely make a worn u-joint "clunk". with the window down listen carefully as you engage and release your clutch in 1st gear, if you here any "clunking" noise I would check your u-joints. To do this SAFELY;ie, using jack stand etc. get under your car and try to turn the drive shaft by hand with the car in gear. ANY play in the drive shaft is bad. I'm not sure if you meant you've changed your clutch and the pressure plate or you did change out you flywheel. either way whichever you did not change could definitely be warped.

Trans whining noise in first, second, third, then disappears shifting into fourth and fifth. any common problems i can look for?

first, second & third all use a lower shaft in the trannsmission called a counter shaft, forth and fifth do not, sounds like you have a bearing going out on the lower shaft. unfourtanly you have to complety dissemble the trannsmission to replace the bearing.....SORRY

On1989 Mazda B2600 manual ute. Intermittent problem. Gearchange mechanism occasionally locks,preventing gearstick from selecting any gear. This can be remedied by stopping engine and selecting gear while...

As painfull as this sounds you will probably have to take off the cover around yor gear stic and do a visual inspection. Most manufacturers use plastic bushes in the linkages that once worn seem to lock up at the most annoying time. The bush's are not expensive to replace but time consuming. A quick short term fix is to give the whole assembly a good spray of WD 40 or Inox or any good spray on lubricant.
Good luck.

My clutch feels loose and does not allow me to change the gears, is my clutch worn out ?

Not necessarily. A worn clutch usually does not prevent gearchanging, it causes the clutch to slip instead.

You have instead described a failed clutch actuation system. If your clutch is cable operated then it probably needs adjustment or a new cable (they can stretch/fray over time) or if it's hydraulically operated then there is probably a leak in either the master or slave cylinder. Note that your problem can occur independently of whether the clutch is nearly new or worn out. Another, rarer, possibility is a worn or bent clutch release arm: to repair this part requires a complete clutch strip down and so it would be entirely normal and best practice to replace the remaining clutch components at the same time unless they're known to be almost brand new.

Almost all clutch fitting centres offer free clutch adjustments in the hope of finding chargeable repairs. If they claim the car needs just a new clutch then ask them why and take the car elsewhere for a second (or even a third) opinion.

Mazda 6 2005 whining from fuel pump when start car only does it in fall and winter.if i turn car off and start it again it goes away?? would a fuel stabilizer or cleaner help?

this noise is caused by the shaft bearings of the gear rotor in the fuel pump being worn, no chemical will correct this problem, most likely the fuel pump will work for years to come, if it gets noisy all the time then t is time to replace it.

it sound like there is a problem with the synchronizers and or the gears them selves. either way you will need to have the trans rebuilt before you can not put it into any gear.

When I do right turn at low speed when it's raining or it's just wet around, the steering weel goes harden. Usualy it hapens on right turn but sometimes and both sides.

Ok, two issues you should check out. one, check the power steering pump and fluid level. Make sure the power steering pump belt is tight and in good shape. secondly, i would run a check on the entire steering assembly. all linkages and that right wheel hub. there may be some issues with it. the main issue is the power steering pump assembly. make sure theres enough fluid in it.
