SOURCE: Location O2 sensor after cat for Mazda Miata 2002

Just had BOTH of my O2 sensors replaced in my 2002 Miata.  The sensors are located
1. at the back of the engine compartment look down (on the passenger side ) You should see a spark plug looking device near the bottom of the engine (on the side) it has a short wire output that goes to a connector looking device on the other end. This O2 sensor had a short wire connector on the other end
Probably can be replaced from the top.
2.  This one is tougher --- From underneath the vehicle just after the catalytic converter  you should be able to see the Spark plug like O2 sensor .  The person who repaired it for me had to trace the wire from the O2 sensor.  It goes up into ( perhaps the frame or bottom of the vehicle INTO the Driver compartment under the drivers seat.  It is located near the Center Console  right at the carpet seam. It was about in a straight line from the BACK of the Drivers side Car Door.  He felt around -- and located the Connector (under the carpet near the center console. .  He checked underneath the car to the point where the wire disappeared --to confirm he had the correct wire.  
Once he located where the sensor wire led to --He had the old sensor out and wire connector disconnected and a  New sensor and the connector installed in about 10 minutes.  
The O2 sensor for this one was much longer than the first O2 sensor in the engine compartment He had to use some sort of standard release spray on the old sensor itself --to remove the old O2 Sensor.   Since it is exposed to the elements under the car.   Wrench, I think a screwdriver  and the spray were all the tools I remember him using.....

The autozone code indicated only the engine compartment sensor was bad.
The repair man told me Both usually go bad at the same time.  
I fixed the first one only -- turned out the warning light lit up a day or so later indicating the second O2 Sensor under the vehicle was bad.  Fixed that as well -- have had no problems since -- repair was about 4 months ago.....

Batteries can have a dead cell in them, meaning there is sufficient charge to run accessories and the "check glass" may look fine (dark green in color on maintenance free batteries), but one dead cell in the battery indicates replacement time.

Mine is an 88 cant imagine its different, thereis a plastic tank on the rhs of the trans that has a screw off lid, you will need the car on stands or a hoist level and with the oil at opperating temp you will also need a bottle pump or some type of plunger to fill it the engine must be running and add the fluid slowly allow time for it to be taken into the trans repeat until at the mark and stays there

Cant find where to put gear lube in my manual transmission for my mazda mx-3


First, raise the vehicle and make sure it's level.

There's a large bolt (19mm?) on the bottom of the transmission (not on the bell housing). Once you remove the bottom bolt, the fuild will drain out as if you were changing your engine oil. Once done, you'll reinstall the bolt.

To refill the fluid (about 2 1/2 quarts IIRC), theres another bolt on the side of the transmission (radiator side). Remove it and fill with fluid until it starts to drip out. Then reinstall the bolt and you're done!

You may need a pump to get the fluid into the hole..

Mazda wont go foward or reverse.


If you are lucky, you are just out of transmission fluid. Add fluid to refill the transmission to the mark on the dip stick. Afterward, you need to determine where the old transmission fluid leaked out and fix the leak. If refilling the transmission does not fix the problem, you then need to look at fixing the transmission. Are you sure the shift linkage is ok?

I'm not sure on your specific model, but most automatic transmissions do not have a drain plug. You need to remove the entire bottom pan to drain the fluid.

Best method is to loosen/remove all bolts except two corner bolts, then when the pan comes loose the fluid will run from one side -- hopefully from one corner. It's always a little messy, even for experienced mechanics. Have a new gasket ready and a filter kit (you need to remove the pan to get to the filter).

you will need to take the trans out and maybe get it back by looking through the shifer hole...maybe. I would take it to mazda ( or a shop that works on a lot of Miatas) and hope they can do it easily. . The drain is on the bottom, how did that get confused?

Does a mazda 323f 2001 model need gearbox oil change after some milage or is it a sealed unit?


Automatic and standard transmission needs fluid change every 24 months. On automatic transmissions, the gasket needs to be changed as well as the filter. On standard transmission there is a drain plug that can be loosened up, and refilled through the refill hole. Standard transmission use gear oil, while automatic transmission uses automatic transmission fluid.
