Update: The shifter cable for the automatic transmission came this week. Mechanic was back in the hospital for another kidney stone. Turns out one has to remove the ENTIRE dashboard, radio, center stack and console to get a new cable installed. A friend of his who is a Mazda mechanic says another options is to drill a new hole in the firewall and use a different route to the shifter. I gave him permission to try that. He will take some photos. Apparently one must be careful of the ECU/computer as you drill/route the cable. Hope I get the car back by Friday. Getting more complicated.

Update: Everything is back together except the fender shields. No leaks. Car starts and runs and stalls under load. Same as it ever was. I will pick it up in a day or two and drive it for a few days or so before mechanic puts back the shields, just to make sure there are no fluid leaks. The hole in the firewall is now filled with expanding foam. Can't wait for the pictures. Cheers.

Well, the supercharger is toast. Rattles, won't allow the engine to idle. Think I will put the car on Craig's list for parts or send it to the kidney car foundation. Transmission is still good. Wish I had the time to part it out.

Just at 254,000 miles. And there are no fluid leaks at all. Bummer.

Hi, are you for sure done with your Milly? I am currently encountering a no start/no crank issue with one of my '99 S'. I think I have narrowed it down to the ignition cylinder/switch assembly. Any chance you would be willing to pull yours and sell me that? I'm in Harrisburg/Hershey PA area. Btw

Thx,
Ted

Btw.. if you would have any interest in keeping your car.. it just so happens I have a spare used supercharger already off the car sitting in my laundry room..

And I work for the #1 overnight shipping Co., so I get a healthy shipping discount..

Lemme know what you want to do.

What? are you Serious/ Sure about it going to the bone yard? Can post a video of the actual sound that it's making? It might just be an air leak... Also, was that the original Supercharger that came with the car?


Please try to save her!

Best of Luck from Mazda World!

There is no air leak. There is no vacuum leak that I or mechanic can find. Could be a bad fuel injector in cylinder 2, but the SC just makes a terrible rattle all the time now.

Bummer, as most of those issues with what you describe are vacuum leaks. If you are feel up to it a different SC could solve the issue, just take your time.

Unfortunately, I don't have the time to take off the intake system and find the vacuum leaks. Plus, I have two other cars, (one is a VW .:R32 that is a blast). And now the Milly has a flat tire, too. Where did that come from?

Bad Luck Today :(

This afternoon a 12 year old neighbor, while riding his bike distracted, ran into the back of the parked Milly S. He bent the trunk, cracked the reflector, dislodged the Mazda insignia, and then flew face first into the rear windscreen. He needed some stitches and some glass pieces removed from his face. Not sure why he was distracted. Fortunately, he did not have a concussion. Car is probably totaled. I think the cost of the rear window alone is more than the blue book value. Having the car towed tomorrow (Still has a flat.) Will update on the outcome, but she is probably going to the junk yard. Will have to see what insurance pays. Glad the neighbor is OK. What a mess. Car has been faithfully parked in the same spot in our cul-de-sac for the last 13 years.

Rear window smashed.


Trunk and reflector.


Bike tread marks on bumper.


Face into glass = blood, unfortunately.


Here is the bike.

The kid's homeowner's insurance sent a check for $1405 for the repairs. Junk yard gave me an additional $100 to take it away. Sad to see it hauled off a few weeks ago. Don't think I could have sold it for $1500. Wife is happy. See you guys around. Tough end to the story.
