Possible 2.2 sport
« on: April 15, 2018, 11:19:25 am »
As per title .
New to the mazda 6 . Previously owned the rx8
Done alot of reading . Some good some bad but then again you only hear when a car goes wrong and not when its running fine so obviously faults are going to pop up in a search.

Been offerd a white 2009 mazda 6 sport 185 bhp
141k
Full service history apart from 81k missing
No paperwork to say if cam chain been replaced

Been told i can take for £2450

2 previous owners and last owner 4 years

Should i walk away given no proof of camchain done ?
Any advice would be apreciated

Thanks

Dave

You could get an OBD reader and check the state of it before you buy

It will read Cam and Crank sensors, It gives you a figure... I believe a new chain will measure 7.48 and a worn out chain will read 10.45... Not sure where I got those figures from, Maybee someone with a bit more knowledge than me can confirm..  I think last time I checked mine it was 9.23
