    Hi Im Brian and Ive a Mazda problem

    My Mazda 323f is 19 years old this year and has just hit 79000 mile, I inherited it off my grandad after he passed away, it was that well looked after the folder you get from the show room had every tax disc every NCT disc and still has the 2 spare keys on the dealer key ring as well as every reciept from Mazda, so when I got the keys I found myself looking for Mazda 323f owner forums to get the heads up on potential problems that I can prevent or catch early.

    •My Mazda is a Special Sport Limited Edition what it stands for is beyond me all I can gather is 3 decals that say is the sport model, its Mica black which I think is the nicest colour when its polished, 14" steel wheels tho. It has minor fish eye bubbles on the rear spoiler was told its a problem with clear coat so thats to be addressed.


    ~Maintenance-wise~

    Everything it has needed its has been given so far on me driveway;

    •T.B and water pump was done at 70000mile.
    •Clutch replaced at
    75000mile.
    •It has a strict oil and filters change interval every 6 months.


    Me next little job is HT leads and spark plugs and a new battery before the bad weather comes in.



    Im a sad sad man I know .

    I have never heard of a ‘323f’, and if it 19 y.o. then it must be a 2000. Are you in Ireland?

    That engine doesn't look familiar to me.
    Is that a single cam 16 valve engine ?
    Is it a 2.0 L ?

    I've kept my car completely stock mostly because it would crumble in my hands if took parts off.
    I only fix what breaks or rusts out. (I hate rust.)

    You should start a build thread and we can try to help you as much as we can.

    It might be difficult for us because of the differences between what you have and the North American model that most of us have.

    I didn't know the 323 came with 14" wheels.
    Do you have 4 stud wheels with rear drum brakes ?

    There was a ‘323’ model in the US in the late ‘80s followed by the ‘Protege’ sedan. We didn’t get the estate version until the P5, and that only in 2002 and 2003 - and only in the sport version with the DOHC 2L with frame stiffening, lower profile tires and other sportier features than the Protege. I know because I had a both an ‘82 GLC (predecessor to the 323) and a ‘98 Protege sedan with the 1.5L. All great cars, but the P5 was a a lot more fun to drive. (So was the ‘72 RX2 I had back in the day!)
