Dante86 - 2004 Mazda 6 MZR Exclusive Plus

Hello everyone, I'm from Portugal, bought a Mazda 6 GY (SW) Exclusive Plus, diesel engine in November 2011. Basically found this
site/forum while researching for some mod's and solutions to some troubles that I found in the last kilometers.

The most serious problem (I think) that continues to bother me is the fact that I've done a trip in the summer and when I arrived my
destination... suddenly the 6 stops working , well.. it was an injector that "died".. it was replaced, all the injection system was
calibrated and tuned etc... but now I have two lights in the dash.. the engine yellow light and the TCS yellow light (slipping car)
so... again in the mechanic and after conversations with mazda they are suspicious that this is related to the accelerator pedal sensor...

I dont know if anyone experience this problem, but any help I will be so much grateful.

Another thing is the "hammer" noise that comes from the engine, I know that when its cold its normal and after the warm up it
calms down... but in my situation this noise persists even when I'm in low reving in all shifts, when I rev up/accelerate it calms down again,
the mechanic told me that this could be the oil that is to thick and takes longer to warm up and spread in all the engine but I've
already tried the two 10W40 and 5W30 that Mazda suggests and the noise persists after a long trip.. so it's not from the oil I think.

Once again any help I will aprecciate.

And of course that I'm here to help too with everything I know

Later I will post some pics with the mod's already made.

Regards and Merry Christmas

Now with the time passing by, I've made some mods trying to do a sporty look,
have many other ideas but money doesnt rise from the ground :P

These were taken when I painted the roof bars and mirrors in silver color:

Since the beginning that I dont like the lexus tail-lights, the V6 red ones are illegal in my country (stupid) so I resolve to paint them with an appropriate headlights tint to be similar to the V6 version:
