We have 2 93 Mazda MX-3s. Both are the 1.8L V6 GS models in Blaze red, one is standard and one is automatic.|
This Tuesday the transmission on the automatic went. It never gave me any trouble before - but then the "hold" light started flashing, it wouldn't go and that was it.
That's where it gets weird. I'm being told that most 1993 MX-3 V6 automatics have a 2 oil pan transmission - one at the bottom, one at the side. About 5% have less computerized version with only 1 oil pan at the bottom. Mine is one of them.
We've looked in every scrap yard in the Toronto area, craigslist, eBay, all the J-spec stores. There are no 1 pan transmissions avaliable. I've owned a Protege and driven a 626 in the past, and never had so much trouble finding a part.
Has anyone else ever come into contact with this 1 pan transmission?
