Thread: New mps owner -- female -- help

  1. Question New mps owner -- female -- help


    hHey Everyone,
    I brought a Mazda3 MPS 2006 model last october, and since i picked it up it has been blowing white smoke, lots of it on idle, not because its cold, just randomly, it has 98000 on the clock. i spoke with the dealer i brought it from and it is no longer covered by warranty and they cannot take the car back as i didnt mention anything in the first few weeks i brought it.

    I have had a look at most of the feeds on here and there have been alot of problems with the turbos, if this is the problem, what is the damage price wise it would cost me to fix it, as i love my car and dont want to get rid of it.

    Thank you,

    There is no girls on the internet...

    Or in more seriousness, sounds like your turbo seals have gone, common issue unfortunately

    You can pick up a replacement (used) turbo on eBay for about $300... Then ask a mechanic friend to do it for you...

    Or get a rebuild kit from eBay and do it that way (not sure on cost for that though)

    Else looking at ~2k from Mazda... Maybe less if you wear a low cut top and flirt with the service manager...

    Thank you rob.

    sarcasticone, there are females everywhere, and i work for madza, so i dont need to worry about labour, just to expensive for a genuine part and was seeing what second hand would cost me.
    thanks guys,

    Most cases these turbos are un serviceable because thy are so rubbish, try gcg or mtq but you find going that path is a wastes of money and time.
