    Coolant Boiling Normal?

    Never paid attention to the radiator set-up in Mazda, always thought it was the same as our other car. Took a peek under the hood and yeah, I'm sorry for my confusion!

    Coolant Boiling Normal?

    OBDII scanner BT Android apps

    There certainly is engine oil temperature sensor. As well as tranny temp sensor, rear diff temp sensor in AWD vehicles. Haven't looked for oil pressure, so not sure. I know, because I read them and more through Forscan.
