Where is the pcm in a 2000 mazda mpv?

You can't test it, you decide if it is the problem by exhausting all other diagnostic possibilities before the $1000.00 part is replaced. The failure rate of this part is less than 2%, so be very careful that you are sure it is the problem.

How do I remove fuel level sensor from a 1998 mazda mpv.

it is inside the gas tank, attached to the fuel pump. you might be better off buying an entire new
pump/sender unit and swapping it in when you remove the old one. Both are now 13 years old and past the end of their designed life. buy a new ring gasket for the top of the tank and do it too.

I hate this particular project. Yes, you need metric ends at least. The problem of course is that auto parts stores don't carry long lines with metric ends. I ended up getting a "pipe flaring tool" so that I could put my own metric ends on the standard pipe. I then bought a short 7" metric line from a parts store, and cut it to use the ends on new standard size line. You will either want to get a nice one on loan from a friend or take the car to a shop. The cheap $30 tool I bought at one of the big auto parts stores didn't even work correctly out of the box. Ended up buying a $150-200 one that works great! Still a lot of work and expense if you are doing it yourself. The line is hard to get to once it gets up to the front of the car, so cutting out the bad rusty part and putting ends on is the easier do-it-yourself project - if you have the brake line flare tool. I would take it to a shop. Good luck!

Your friend is a little vague but almost right. This is due to lack of lubrication in the lower ball joints. Common issue. There is no way to fix other than replacement. the parts I am recomending are a little more pricey but do wonders and "FIX" the issue. They are called "Moog problem solvers". In my opinion of doing front end work over the years, Moog has some of the best products for issues with front end repair. Often correcting manufacturer issues!! Have the front end components inspected for wear and then replace the lower ball joints definately. Let me know if you need anything else.

Just go to the autoparts store to get the parts. Make sure you have the make/model of the car, the engine size, and whether it has a/c or not. They will look them up on the computer and get the parts for your specific vehicle. If you register your vehicle at, you will have access to a free full onlline repair manual for your vehicle. It's free and handy! Hope this helped.

94 honda civic cat back replace with no hydraulic lift

I would use floor jacks and jack it up from the back as high as it will go and then set jack stands under it. Its front will drive so you dont have to worry about it rolling just make sure its in park and if its standard make sure its in gear. Be good to block the front wheels also.

1998 mazda mpv 4x4 is not engaging and awd light is blinking wondering what i can check

If your system is like my old 91 there was a relay and vacuum actuated switches. My problem ended up being one of those relays being bad. There were 2 relays and they had the identical part numbers so to test it I switched the wires from one relay to the other and it went into 4wd. Might be an easy fix. Check your manual and see what makes it go into 4X4. If you dont have a manual see if you can download your models manual at I think that my series was similar to yours so look on the firewall on the left side by the strut tower. You will see 2 sets of wires going up into rubber boots. The relays are in the boots. It took me quite a wile to figure it all out but the transfer case has a little motor and some contacts inside the end of the transfer case housing. Thats is where the magic happens but the relays are what make the magic happen. There are also vacuum switches on the drivers side strut tower. One engages the front end and one disengages the front end. There is a vacuum actuated system that works the front end and if the rod or vacuum goes bad and the system sees that the front end didnt engage this will also give an error. I would start at the transfer case relays first. Like I said, it is what gave me your exact described problem. Hope this helps... and dont forget to rate the fix. Thanks... Dale
