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: i replaced the ignition coil of my mazda 323 sedan

timming check pull # 1 plug hold your thumb or better yet a compression tester in the # 1 plug hole . and watch the rotor go around. look at the cap and wire to see where # 1 is.
I locate #1 plug and wire before I pull the dist cap. When it pushes out air it must be pointing to # 1.... hope this helps you

Well, get the car up, take the tire off, Take a C clamp the bigger the better since it has ABS. Lock the C clamp on the hammers and tighten. Actually here is my email for diagram it would be easier to describe. onetigerone at hotmail dot com.

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 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

Hi I have a mazda midge 1600. I changed the cv joints but the car still vibrates and 'floats' at 100km/h +... what can be done to fix that? lower suspension arms? steering?

Mounts. Check transmission and engine mounts. Sounds to me that the mounts are worn/broken, causing excess strain on the cv's, which probably was the cause of the cv's going bad. This would also explain the vibration.

How do I adjust my valve clearance (tarpets) and timing on my mazda 323 E3.

tappets are done by the rule of 9 ,ie-1 down adjust 9------- 2 down adust 7 ------3 down adjust 6 .as for timing it shouldnt need touching unless you have points and a distributor which i think this year uses a module inside the distributor cap so it should not need touching
