The book does not specify that it is an interference engine but it specifically states not to turn the crank shaft with the chain disconnected. To me this means, treat it as possible valve damage if the chain has broken or if you turn the crank with the chain missing.

SOURCE: engine light on my mazda cx 7 2007 comes on then i

Run fault codes and check why the engine light comes on Obviously the fault is still there. Did you replace the faulty part with a genuine unit because some cpu units do not recognise after market units and will still record a fault. Reset the cpu using a code reader

2009 cx-7 has oil leak but oil is full??drives fine no smell has 113,000 mile on it and never a problem

Have the engine cleaned top and bottom with a pressure washer and once that is done drive the car about 10 miles return to the shop and check for the oil leak source, common placed for leaks are valve covers, rear main seals and the oil pressure sensor. It is best that you have access to a car lift.

I need to access the stock stereo in my 2008 CX-7.

I am not really sure on this vehicle but usually there is a special set of tools , they look like small flat bars that go in on the sides of the radio to release the locking mechanism. You can definitely get them at a dealer but try stopping at a stereo shop they might be able to let you use one, it only takes about one minute to release the locks.
