You will need to most likely pull the engine to give you the clearance needed to remove the pan all the way

Just bought a 1999 mazda mx5 2 days ago and found it has a knock type rattle in the engine that lasts about 3 seconds on a cold start. Regards Bruce. ps cars done 160,000ks.


it seems the oil is too thick. The previous owner or the dealer may have added thick oil treatment. And the pump has to work extra hard to get it circulating. Change the oil and filter. Use 10w40 oil when refilling. do not overfill. It has many miles too , so it could also be that the oil pump is beginning to get clogged.

Changing the alternator on 1999 miata


The alternator is held on by two bolts. The top bolt is part of the tensioner, which uses, thankfully, an old style bolt system to tension a separate alternator belt. Once you remove the top bolt the tensioner can be removed by sliding it towards the rear of the car through the slot it sits in. The bottom bolt has fallen prey to what I consider an engineering oversite. The bolt threads out towards the back of the engine, and because of this, you have to remove the stiffening arm that sits right behind this bolt. Fortunately, the stiffening arm is held on by three bolts, all of which are easy to get to. Once this arm is out of the way you can remove the bottom bolt.
