This is only 15k from my house and I've just been paid so technically there is the money in my bank account, until I take the mazda to get fixed. I just don't think I could swing this with Sal. Given I still have the commodore in the garage. I'll just pray the Mazda is fubar'ed.

I was not looking for my capri when it turned up here in Alberta, just had to beg and borrow :lol: and if a bx came up for sale here i'd do the same again, not likely tho

it is killing me. If only I could get the Mazda ready to sell. Any one got any idea why I'd have a judder/misfire once the car gets up to temperature and the engine is put under load? I'm just drive to the station and getting the train to work ATM.

It's bad enough to loose a lot of acceleration, but not as bad as getting 2 leads the wrong way around. Although it does feels like it's missing one in every 3 cycles. I'd been wondering if it was bad fuel as it doesn't like idling but I've tried V power, injector cleaner, high octane cleaner and cleaning the dissy cap.

I took it to the garage today as I decided I'd probably spend the next 2 months changing every filter, plug, lead and sensor and then find out it's exhaust, engine or gear box related. The weird thing is if you put it in neutral the engine in great and revs well up to the rev limit, it's only when it's under load the problem shows.
