Mazda Repair Questions? Ask Mechanics for Answers ASAP
I take this the skyactive diesel you have here....
I take he's done all the testing, checks to prove the pump has gone..?
Ok.. these engines arent unknown for that im afraid.. seen several of these engines fail..early ones had issue of metal filings form the camshaft getting lodged in the oil pump and damaging it aswell as the turbo core,, excessive carbon build up due to infrequent oil changes, lack of genuine oil and genuine filters fitted ..thus causes carbon deposits to build up in the oil galleries and the plastic pick up starving the oil pump.. seen 1 with a broken oil pump chain,again due to seizure..all in all the cheapest option open is a replacement engine,.. unless the car has been fully serviced by Mazda you might find it difficult to get a good will payment towards repair.im afriad..but its nothing a independent garage cant carry out..
