Auto repair shop states that fule pump needs

Auto repair shop states that fuel pump needs replacing on 2006 mazda 6. Car only has 20,000 miles and gas tank was empty but still showing a half tank on the gauge. Could this really be a fuel pump or a faulty gauge? Is it easy to replace the fuel pump yourself?

If that problem with the gas guage is bothering you badly enough, then you will have to replace the fuel pump. The repair shop is on the up and up. The fuel level sending unit on the Mazda 6 is an integral part of the fuel pump assembly and is monitored by the computer. If the sending unit is defective then the entire pump assembly must be replaced, since the pump cannot be disassembled. Sorry about that, but I sure hope this helped ya!

Car not running on fuel but ok on gas


Please define 'fuel'? Gas is fuel. Also define 'dual fuel' and notice the spelling of 'dual' unless you are going to shoot at it and have a 'duel' :)

Dual fuel usually means you can use fuels with ethanol or not.

You run off on a tangent and say you changed a fuse but don't mention which one of the 40 to 60 you might have?

Why are you looking for the kill switch? That provides dead or alive, not alive in some respects and not in others.

So confusing.

Which parts to replace for tuneup @ 100K mile


A 100,000 mile tune up should include spark plugs, spark plug wires, fuel filter, if it has one under the frame(some newer cars have an in the tank fuel filter that is usually only changed when the fuel pump dies. Also replace the air filter if it is dirty and has been there over 20,000 miles. Some of the later models have coil on plug design and then there is no wires to replace. check tire pressure and the spare this also improves gas mileage.

Where is the fuel filter on a Mazda 6 2006 ? I have terrible idling and hesitation on the car for 3 weeks no one seems to knwo for sure what it is. No service engine light or reading on the computers....


The fuel filter is part of the fuel sending unit inside the gas tank. There is no other fuel filter on the car or no other way to replace it unless you change out the fuel filter.

Should a 2005 Taurus with 100,000 miles have the water pump replaced as preventative maintenance? What about the timing chain/belt?


Yes it needs to be replaced its already time for that.
IntervalsHere is what I recommend for maintenance intervals. There are exceptions to all of these including severe duty, which most northern cars fall into.

  • Change Transmission filter-30,000 miles, 90,000 and 150,000 miles and fluid at 60,000, 120,000 and 180,000 miles.
  • Change oil every 3,000 miles or 3 months, unless you use Mobil One, in which case 6 months/6,000 miles.
  • Chassis lube every 3,000 miles, assuming there are fittings.
  • Spark plugs: Conventional plugs: 30,000 miles, Double platinum: every 50,000 miles (100,000 mile plugs are best to be changed well before that, although some can reach it).
  • Fuel filter: 35,000-40,000 miles. Unless it is in the tank. But if the tank is ever dropped, do it then
  • Ignition cap, rotor, wires: 60,000-80,000 miles. (if it has them).
  • Timing Belt, if applicible: 60,000 miles on many but check with gates or dayco or the manual or dealer, as many different intervals are now present.
  • Coolant flush -- green: 2 years/24,000 miles.
  • Coolant flush -- dex-cool or long life: 5 years/50,000 miles.
  • Tire rotation: 5,000-8,000 miles.
  • Alignment: 15,000-20,000 miles., unless tire wear is not a problem and car goes straight.
  • Brake fluid flush and power steering fluid flush: 2 years or when dirty or discolored.
  • Air filter, pcv valve and cabin air filter: as needed.
  • Professional fuel injection service: 40,000 miles.
  • Throttle bore plate cleaning: 20,000 miles.
  • Air induction service: 20,000 miles.
MaintenanceEvery auto manufacturer lists their required maintenance on their web sites and in the owners manual the maintenance service intervals vary between manufacturers.

Your car is a moving piece of machinery, it needs maintenance, if you want this car to last you need to service it. Do not just do the minimum recommended services that are listed in you service manual. Make sure you service your cooling system which prolongs the life of the radiator and water pump, and the power steering system, which will extend the life of your cars power-seeking pump and gear box or rack. It will cost you much more than you want to spend when you fail to maintain your car and larger problems surface. I recommend that you review your owners manual and get acquainted with a reputable auto repair facility. A good relationship with you car and your car's mechanic will benefit you in the long run, providing you with a long lasting and safe car.

At 30,000 miles you should also service your cooling system, transmission, fuel system and power steering; this should be repeated every 30k miles. I recommend flushes of the later mentioned items to prolong these systems' life span.

Can i buy a fuel strainer for my 2006 mazda 6 fuel pump?


It's called an in-line fuel filter. You'll have to pick a "safe place" to install it away from "ANY" heat of the engine or exhaust lines. The old ones were glass and really nice. Easy to see if they were clogged. Now they're all plastic and throw-away from what I've seen. Better to see if you have stuff in your line by pumping a pint out into a glass jar and looking for residue or debris. If you have some, the line will still clog up fast, plus you'll need to replace (or clean) your old filter. This doesn't "STOP" a problem. If it's contaminated, you need to clean out your gas tank and THAT's DANGEROUS! Been there, watched one blow up! If it's rust- replace the tank OR car. If it's OLD gas, then you can possibly put in a product that "renews" the gas. Then use a fuel cleaner for awhile to cut the varnish out of your system. VERY time-consuming and may not work.

Car quit and wont restart


It could be a any or a combination of failing components. If you haven't changed the fule filter recently (say within the past 20,000 miles) I'd change it first. Next. check the fuel pressure at the service port near the injectors to ensure you're getting the right fuel pressure to the injectors.
