Problems with Mazda 6
Engine Overheating: This is an implication of a Failed Cooling Fan Control Module. Replacing the fan control module will rectify the problem.
Emissions Problem: this is as a result of the swirl shutter valve failure, thereby causing an emission recall of the Check Engine Light to be illuminated
Ticking Noise from the Engine: caused by the Sticking Valve Lash Adjusters. The Noise is prominent on higher mileage vehicles, especially when the Engine is still cold. Replacement of the Hydraulic valve lash adjusters plus routine maintenance schedule will correct this issue.
