Hi. I have been...

Hi. I have been told that the compressing is gone in cylinder 4 of my 2007 mazda5. It will cost circa €1000 to repair but the car has 280000 km done and it is not worth repairing. thoughts?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Mazda5 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Gosh no, this is what the garage told me

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, i just happened by here.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

no not really. it failed emissions test in its last NCT and it cost €600 for a temporary fix that the garage said will not get it through the next nct. I can already smell the burnt cabbage smell from the cat converter at times, and the oil light comes on quite frequently. i am prepared to upgrade, i was just curious if this would be expected or worth fixing
Mazda Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

with that information in mind I would not repair it, if you do get something else what did you have in mind?
