Ok guys I am going to look at a mazda 626 on thurday. It is a 5 speed v6 has 161,000. Now i was wanting to know if here is any big problem with the v6 motors in these cars. The car is going to be my dd. So letting me know anything about them that i might run into would be great thanks.

distributors are a biggie, leaking valve cover gaskets, vaccume leaks around the intake. biggest i would say is distributor failure

yea make sure if you have to get smog checked that it's passed, the EGR system on the KLs can sometimes cause major issues.

also what pro91 said, distributors are a biggy, so if it runs solid and there are NO hiccups or missfires, then it should be good.

also rear calipers tend to get sticky on them too, so just might want to re-grease the calipers and adjust the parking brake.

asides from that, they're a solid car, i love my 626.

definitely the distributors, there's away to bypass that problem but you gotta do some web surfing to find it

keep in mind the v6 in that 626 is the v6 all the 323 and protege's are swapping too. they have issues. but nothing major.
