Do you still have a belly pan? Does it overheat while driving?

How do you know the water seals are good?...I've never heard of the gusher test. I would check the t-stat...and get the radiator cleaned...it could be clogged

I would flush the rad (thus changing the coolant in the whole system), and make SURE you have a mazda OEM thermostat..

Of course, it takes more than a radiator flush to clean the entire system as this will not do anything for the water in the engine.



Yeah, what is the gusher test?
