Question about Mazda MAZDA5

1 Answer

A week or so ago the AC unit decided to call it quits. Now today the engine overheated into the redline. The car is a 2008. It has the 2.3L 16V engine. It's too new to be having these problems. All the fluids are good from coolant to oil. And no visible swelling of hoses or leaks at all. The temp is around 85 outside.

    Wow that was a fast response. Thank you. I will check out to see if the fan spins up with the AC engaged.



    It is still under warranty, however only if I was stateside. I am currently in Germany with the Army and am having no luck finding out through Mazda if this is all covered. I called the stateside hotline today and they said the best they can do is have it repaired by the Mazda shop out here and send them the final bill hoping it is covered under warranty.



    Thanks again for super quick response. I will check out the fan in a few minutes.

Unless you are driving like crazy you should still have a warranty.

The one thing that jumps out that would effect both the A/C and overheating is the radiator fan. Check to see if it is on when you turn the A/C on (even though it appears it is not working) It should come on with the A/C demand. If the fan is not working you need to check in your manual the location of the fuses and relays that control the fan.

hope this helps.

If you have less than 36,000 miles and did not buy it before Aug 28 of 2006 this should be covered.

I have an 06 mazda 3. About a week ago while at a red light. I noticed my AC stopped blowing cold. Then when I accelerate it blows cold. Also my engine started overheating. Ive concluded that the issue was...

if your engine is overheating could be the problem of the ac not working , check the temperature sending unit located by thermostat housing , if it is bad will not let the radiator fan come on when ac is on and will cause your high side pressure ac line to get to hot causing the high side switch to disable the fan , also check the blower motor resistor it controls speed of blower motor

Oil Gauge Marking Way Past 80

Check your dipstick for antifreeze in the oil. You mad need to replace the oil pressure sensor/sending unit. If there's no antifreeze in engine oil, replace sending unit. Should be a round silver sending unit at the left rear place on the intake with a plastic black wiring connector with 2-3 wires going into it.

The car overheated about 2 weeks ago. had no idea why. fluid was full, so we just took out the thermostat temporarily since it is summertime. has been fine since then till tonite when it all of a sudden...

Did you check the fan for normal operation? Does the fan come on if you turn the AC on(Should turn on regardless of engine temp with AC on, otherwise it will turn on and off as needed). Did you check if the radiator was still full any tyme between the previous repair and the overheat? Water pumps on older chrysler and mits products do occaisionally lose impellers.

get a new coolant temperature sensor.

the orginal black ones are faulty.

make sure it is the green topped one.

also do a normal tune up with spark plugs, clean the maf, maybe replace coils packs.

Overheating and A/C problems.

If you get cold air when the heater is on, you have lost quite a bit of coolant. Now the question is what caused you to lose your coolant.

As long as you didn't drive around with your engine overheating, your engine should be fine. I think you would know if you had damaged your engine.

When the engine cools, fill your cooling system, start it up and check for leaks or overflow. If the only water your see is from the overflow when the engine starts to overheat, then it very well could be the water pump or thermostat. Chances are the thermostat will need to be replaced anyway.

If this doesn't solve your problem, write back.

2005 Nissan Sentra, AC blowing hot & engine overheating

most likely a thermostat because the pressure on the a\c will be high if engine is over heating or the fans are not kicking on (check fan relay)
