    If you really want to get most of the coolant out, you need to pull the lower radiator hose off the engine block. Even that won't get everything. You can buy a flush kit that allows you to hook a...

    The old model did a good job maximizing interior space. You are correct that it is based on the same platform as the previous Ford Edge, but it seemed much larger inside than the Edge. We test...

    There is no way the current generation is larger inside than the last. Look up the cargo and interior volumes. The passenger cabin volume declined slightly, but it feels a lot tighter than the...

    Have you test driven a new CX-9? I'd go sit in one and see if you like it - if room is important to you, the new generation might fall short of your expectations. It's definitely nicer inside (as...

    The new CX-9 and the XC90 were very nice, don't get me wrong. The new Signature CX9 is definitely nicer inside than my old GT model. The ride is fine and it is quieter than the previous generation,...

    I briefly considered both of these vehicles before electing to keep my 2010 CX-9 until it explodes.

    First the XC-90:
    Very nice inside. Quiet. Smooth. Gets pricey really fast when adding...

    The owner's manual has a maintenance schedule. At a minimum, do what it says.

    Some "bonus" items to consider:
    1. Water pump replacement
    2. Drain and refill transmission again.

    Pretty much every gasoline detergent package, as well as almost every fuel system cleaner, uses polyetheramine chemistry. These compounds include nitrogen in their makeup. I don't know if the exact...

    Fixing the existing motor is kind of a crap shoot. Once water gets into the oil, you have no idea if there was any damage done to the crankshaft bearings. I'd look into buying a used engine and...

    There is an access panel under the second row seats. It isn't difficult to get to, but you do have to remove the seats.

    Just so we are clear here, is the following timeline correct?
    1. You took it to the dealer because the light came on.
    2. They read the code, found P0016.
    3. They changed the oil and filter and...

    Straight from Mazda's website: "Fuel system: Advanced Direct Injection"

    It's a direct injection engine. You don't get 310 pound-feet of torque at 2000 rpm any other way.

    When you say the coolant was empty, what do you mean? The overflow bottle or the entire system?

    That's probably detonation. The gravelly sound, rough running and shaking, along with the total lack of power are all classic signs. What kind of gas are you using? Try a different station and/or...

    The power train warranty is 5/60. The EGR one could be nothing or it could be a pretty big deal - the engine recirculates exhaust gas to avoid pinging and detonation at low RPMs. If that system is...
