2004 Mazda 6 Repair Question
Mazda 6 Gas Problem
I am savy enough to do the work myself and this is how I make my living these days buying and selling cars - I would hate to pass on this 04 because is a steal at this price $$ providing it is something simple enough (besides the head gasket) that I can handle to get it home and strip the heads off - but if the motor is fried then I don't want the headache.
Can someone that has previous experience with these 04 Mazda 6 sedans give me the top four or five things to check first and in order please? I would feel a lot better if I had a better understanding of this - Thank you in advance from Hawaii !
no safe mode that you mention.
remove the head, it may be cracked, warped or the coolant may have destroyed the bearings. this is not simple at all. very expensive.
also, head gasket is a result of overheating not the cause. you will still need to find the original reason for overheating.
i would pass as this is going to end up replacing the motor
