    When the two low cylinders are next to each other, might be a head gasket.

    Transmission fluid lifetime

    Here is a quote from Mazda about their transmission fluid. Then they say suggested service interval at specific time/mileage in the Operator's Manual. I see a lot of car manufacturers with sealed transmissions have the same statement. What does lifetime mean for a Mazda Skyactiv manual...

    Of 0w-20 oils, which have highest VI

    Does high VI numbers come down to VI improvers? TGMO is a GTL.

    Of 0w-20 oils, which have highest VI

    Bet this has been asked in the past, but with the motor oil formulation changes I thought it might be a start to see what is out there. TGMO 0w-20 has a VI of 227 (2018)

    VI number question-Mazda

    I am learning and just getting to understand the VI number in regards to temperature. What I want to do is to get close to the VI of Mazda's OEM 75w-90 MT fluid, but as of yet I have not found the 40 c or 100 c viscosity or the VI number for it. Named "Mazda Original Long Life Gear Oil IS"...

    Oil Catch Can and UOA

    On the ND Miata website occasionally they post a UOA. When I see fuel on it first thing I ask is did you install a catch can. Seems I can pick them out. The ones that look fine on fuel do not have the catch can installed. Kinda interesting since the Skyactiv has a oil separator before the PVC...

    Oil Catch Can and UOA

    Just I have seen a coincidence in raised oil and fuel levels in Skyactiv UOA tests for those that have installed a oil catch can. I drive a 2019 Miata and that is a popular install. Was thinking that the OCC was a restriction and going to be seen or just a fluke.
