SOURCE: valve clearance

tappets dont squeak .. you want to hope the noise is coming from an ageing or loose fan belt .. if it is really coming from inside the valve cover then it could be a blocked oil passage that lubs the cam and its bearings ..this would soon cause a major engine failure .. other possibilities .. a bad bearing in the idler pully, water pump or alternator (a drop of oil on those can help identify the failing bearing) ... also at times the distributor can cause noise if its bearings run dry .. there is a really neat stethoscope like tool that allows you to listen to various parts and places to locat the problem .. but be careful playing around a running engine (no ties, long hair, necklaces .. if its the fan belt then it will likely make more noise as the engine is accelerating .. turning the lights on might increase or change the noise .. a leaky vacuum hose can cause a whistle like sound. .

SOURCE: My car (Mazda 323 2000cc Diesel) will not start.

ck you bat but youll probably find its your glow plugs.these are set in the head and usualy have a wire going to them.check with ohm meter.one termenal to the plug where the wire attaches the other to ground. there sould be no resistance for they are basicly a direct short to create heat that warms the air for initial start up.replace any that dont make contact with ground

SOURCE: Am having problems with a mazda 323 engine starts

starts,runs then cuts out more likely to be fuel,rather than electrics.if it were the control unit you would have a start problem as well.start with the basics and work up the expence ladder.change fuel filter(if fitted)then try redexe with high octane fuel.then check/replace fuel pump.only try one thing at a time.less cost....

SOURCE: car stalls in traffic on a hot day. it sputters

try by replacing thermostat and the radiator pressure cap, this may be just the fix! make sure coolant level is fine. it sounds like it has to cool down for at least 10-15 minutes before restarting. god bless!!

1988 Mazda 323SE -- small hose, literally the length and girth of a thumb, has ruptured... would like to replace it myself if possible, but can't find a part number or a name for it, and frankly I'm...


Mazda go this from Ford as an idea. If you look at the older Ford V-8's, such as the Windsor series, they have a similar arrangement at the thermostat housing. It is a type of bypass for the upper radiator hose to help eliminate overheating. Some of the 323 models used the same motor as the Escort, so i would go down to your local parts store and ask the counter person if their book lists a bypass hose for your model and motor. If not, ask them to check under the Escort. You will know the part wihen you see it.
If it is not available, then you can probably have them cut some bulk hose (remember to tell them that it is going to be carrying hot coolant) and work it in. If you use bulk hose, buy it a little longer than needed. As the saying goes, "measure twice, cut once."
And try to use new clamps.

I have got a mazda 323 its an automatic, every morning when l start it ,the time l shift it into gear it cuts off


check your transmission fluid, you can find this near the engine oil, it should be near by.

when you check leave it running for 60secs before checking and make sure it is on level ground.

good luck

Just bought an 88 mazda 323. says cat. is clogged. engine sounds ok but was wondering another diagnosis. he says he didnt want me to drive it for fear that if the clog got too hot it would explode and blow...


Well, blow up Im not sure bout that but it could possibly get you stuck somewhere if it is clogged or on the way out.It could cause some engine damage though.I would not drive it if it is thought to be clogged without checking into more.
