Question about 2000 Mazda Millenia

Constant problems with 2000 Mazda Millenia S

I love this car, but I have had quite a few major problems with it. It has the Miller-cycle engine which is awesome...when the car isn't in the shop being fixed. I have had oxygen sensors replaced, both catalytic converters replaced, there's a leak in the supercharger which burned out the spark plugs because it is shooting out oil & when I picked it up from the auto shop this morning I got 1/2 mile down the road & had to take it back because the check engine light came back on & the car was running rough (as in skipping). Now they say it may be the coil pack. I also had to replace the cv joints on both sides. Is this the pattern of events with the 2000 model? I love this car, but I hate to keep sinking more money in it. It just now turned over 100,000 miles. Do you think its time to trade it in???

I have a bad ticking noise in the engine block. I think its one of my lifters. What can i do to fix this problem with out spending to much money . The car is a Mazda Millenia 2.5 L the year of the car is...

Try using higher grade gas. If that gets rid of it or reduces it, it's a detonation problem. Try running a few cans of seafoam motor treatment in the gas and a bit of miles before the next oil change.

I cannot locate the fuel filter on a Mazda xedos 9 miller cycle engine - where is the fuel filter on a Mazda Xedos 9 Miller cycle engine

Mazda fuel filters are usually found underneath the back seat. At least that's where mine was. I have a Millenia. Good thing back seats are easy to remove.

Mazda millenia problems

here are a few problems to look out for:

Check-engine light: Check engine light comes on due to carbon buildup on the exhaust valves of 2.5L engine. (1995-02)

Engine noise: Some engines make a metallic tapping noise requiring a new friction-gear spring on the camshaft. (1995)

Headlights: The headlight drain hoses can get kinked by the aiming screws causing fogging. (1995-96)

Keys: It may be hard to turn the ignition key because the steering shaft is not positioned correctly. (1995)

Steering problems: The steering wheel may be off center requiring adjustment of the tie rods. (1995). You can also have a look at the following website where some owner have given their opinions on owning one.

Clicking sound,low rpm idle, and

If you ever have an oil leak it really should be fixed right away unless this happened all at once. Go to a local mech or if there is an Autozone around go there and have them check the Engine Light code for you for free. You will have more info to work with.

No compression

Dont worry to much the Millenia is a non-interference engine so the valves did not get bent. You just need to re-adjust the belt again in its proper position.
