Default What did you to to your MAZDA today?

Well, figured there wasn't one of these on here.............lol

I went ahead today and took all my time to make sure my wife's car (02 Protege 5 Yellow Cab...lol) was up to par. Been hearing some funkiness on the timing side of the engine so about a week ago diagnosed the issue!!

Low and behold it was the damn Water Pump!!! AARRGGGHHHHHHHH........lol So i went ahead and started fixing it today without having to do any timing what-so-ever....OOHHH YEAH!!!! Should have it done pretty soon. Below is a pic of the old and new pump.....bearing was starting to give way on the old one. Seems whenever previous owner did the timing belt service....and NO it wasn't my Co-owner Todd......they sorta forgot to do the pump with it!!





So, I know a few mazda owners from around....WHAT DID YOU DO TODAY TO YOUR MAZDA??????

The most recent thing I've done was get a short shifter for it. Now I just need a proper knob before I can actually use it lol. Plus I've got big plans for the car and engine.

I thought about going. I just don't want to spend $40 on a shift knob, hell, $10 is my max for those things. It's a miata SS, so I'll most likely look for a miata knob in a yard.

anything done to the FD? As far as the miata goes it looks clean. Get rid of those style bars though and get a hard dog roll bar. If you happen to roll with the top off, they can "mouse trap" into your head.

I guess I should have elaborated. Anything done maintenance-wise?

Plans for the black miata are to drive it for the winter to save my nb the salt damage and the possibility of getting slammed by minivans in the snow, lol, and fix all the small problems a car from 1992 can acquire, I would love to pick up a used hard dog somewhere, I'd put it in the NB though, love convertibles with cages

Not very significant but for this time of year it is. Put in a new back-up switch and battery and now I have lights and power to crank over in the morning yaaaaay. Have a pair of PS bellows to put on but will wait to put in new tie-rods and also plan on getting poly bushings and new camber bolts. Hopefully have all that done by summer.

Finally replaced the pivot shaft seal on the speed. Once I took the battery out I noticed I've already got a Cobb turbo inlet pipe, pleasant surprise haha.




and found out my front left is hella out of alignment
