HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

First, what is the year and model of your Mazda?

What is the engine size?

Automatic or manual transmission?

If automatic, and noticable issues with shifting?

Please remember that I am not there and therefore rely on you for as much detail as possible. At times I may need to ask for more information or clarification.

If you plan to repair yourself, this may require some diagnosing first and I need to know if you have a digital volt/ohm meter and if you have a scan tool with testing and live data capabilities
