Question about 1999 Mazda MX-5 Miata
My mx5 has just had a head gasket failure. the head has been skimmed and all refitted. i beleive that the cam belt was fitted wrong and it bent the valve stems. the mechanic replaced the valves at no extra cost although hasnt admitted poor fitting of the cam belt was the cause of the valve failures. ive had the car back for a couple of days now but it occassionally seems to misfire and very rarely has unresponsive throttle in the lower rev ranges. is there a simple answer or was the work just carried out by idiots who have ruined my car?
Hi this sounds very messy if somebody has made a mess of things the only way to check it out is to get it to a reputable garage and get it checked over ,did you have the head pressure tested as a common fault with these cars is internal cracking of the head which can often look like a head gasket failure the only solution then is a complete new head good luck with this
