Mazda Repair Questions? Ask Mechanics for Answers ASAP
Hello I will help,
Is the cooling fan running?
Do you have a coolant pressure tool?
I am unable to speak on the phone so we can continue here.
If the fans are not running try turning the AC on and see if they come on then.
If the fans do work then I would check the temperature sensor to see if it is reading correctly. Either a scantool with data readout for coolant temp or a volt/ohmeter works for that.
If the fans do run and it still overheats it is a blown headgasket.
That is where the pressure tool comes in, you let the engine get dead cold and install the tool then run it at fast idle, if the pressure comes up before the coolant gets warm the gasket is leaking combustion pressure into the coolant.
Let me know how I can help
Great, please let me know what I can do to help. One of the chain parts stores may have a coolant pressure tester in their loan a tool program.
If you have further questions post back to this thread, I am here most of the time
