Re: Air con cuts out in very hot weather

Well other than checking the voltage on the connectors that would rather point to the problem or manually triggering the relay when its hot to see if its the ECU signal that is not operating it. The clutch solenoid is G3-03 lower left and the relay G3-02 by earthing the Yellow/White (Y/W) would caus...

Re: Wiring a reverse cam with dash mounted screen

Can you provide some links and/or pictures to the devices as otherwise it's a bit difficult to work out what leads you have!

Re: Air con cuts out in very hot weather

The scavenger fan has no involvement with the air con at all. The only sensor for the scavenger fan is the thermistor mounted under the handbrake poking in to the engine housing, it only comes on when the air above the engine gets hot, normally when the vehicle is static or slow moving and the air f...

Re: V6 Power Loss esp on Hills

You need to be very careful while playing with the coolant levels in Bongo's. The system is pressurised to get better heat transfer from the engine, hence first thing is NEVER open the cap on the de-gassing tank when the engine is even warm! As the pressure drops it can cause the coolant to boil ins...

Re: V6 Power Loss esp on Hills

Welcome!

When was it last serviced, with fuel filter, oil and spark plugs checked/replaced ? Sounds like you might not be firing on all cylinders so a check of the distributor, rotor and leads as well might be in order ?

Re: Has anyone tried a 323f driver side window switch on a 2001 model?

As far as I am aware it won't make it work, the type where re-wiring the pins merely had the pairs for each window swapped so that passenger switch operated drivers side and vice-a-versa. If its not working now then no reason that it would work reversed.

Re: Which new car stereo should I buy (that works with phones?)

Be aware that DAB coverage isn't as good as FM coverage especially outside Urban areas around the more remote coastal areas, I would strongly suggest that any device needs to include "old" FM reception as well as DAB as a minimum!

Re: ATF capacity

Its the level when its all spinning and being churned around that is important, the static level means very little at all as the volume in the torque converter increases once its spinning hence reducing the level in the rest of the system.

Re: ATF capacity

Its in here http://www.g8dhe.net/bongo_images/mazda ... ttings.htm
between 8.6 and 9.8l depending on version, but it doesn't all come out by draining, has to be forced out from the torque converter where it pools.

Re: Air conditioning diagnosing

The system is only one system, one compressor, and two cooling matrices one for the front and one for the rear why not use the mechanical diagrams ?
