Is your engine stock? I'm not sure if there is a reported issue, but it is doubtful . You may have a faulty shaft, or you are pumping a lot more HP than is intended for the factory shaft.U-joints are easy to rebuild, and they will commonly need attention. But not the twisting of the shaft.

SOURCE: Mazda miata radiator replacement

For myself, if I were to replace something like that, I would (as I did in my 87 RX7 TII) a performance radiator. Koyo the trusted brand is my suggestion though probably more expensive.

or ebay

Just be sure to take measurements where needed. Other than that, most radiator swaps can be a DIY project if you have a few hours and are handy with a socket wrench, screwdriver and pliers.

Can't budge outer cv joint Mazda MPV 1991


the outer cv joint is separable
you have to take the complete drive shaft out of the vehicle first to do it
It is not a simple process to break the joint down and you will need mechanical skill, a good off set vice and a heavy hammer
it is more cost effective and less frustrating to simply have drive line specialists replace the shaft for you

How does a cv joint drive shaft goes bad


cv joints are covered with a plastic/rubber boot to keep the road dirt out and lubricating grease in''the inner works of a cv joint are an alloy metal with honeycomb chambers for the joint bearings to fit inside of..do this.. take your left hand and make a fist..then fit the fist into the spread open fingers of the right hand ..rotate both hands together back and forth..your ncv axle turns in much the same way..when dirt gets into the joint due to cover failure..this joint wears out because it has engine torque(twisting) pressure on it while moving..along with grit and dirt grinding away at both the metal and the bearings inside causing lots of slop in the joint..now if the engine torque becomes too strong for the worn out chambers in the joint, they will break..remember they arent steel,,they are alloy..thus rendering the joint unuseable ( slip your left hand inside the right between the fingers to grt the idea.. thats what the cv joint on your car is doing...so replacement is necessary..its not an easy job since most cars front suspension is opened up during this proceedure,,,car is ten years old do you feel that its worth the money? call for rates first...good luck and repost findings thnx

Miata has 61000 miles want replace timing belt to be on safe side


California has a law that Mazda guarantees the timing belt will last 105,000. I drove my 1999 Miata that long before I replaced it. Mazda ia a non interactive motor which means that if the belt breaks the car stalls and won't go anywhere. No damage to engine if it breaks.
