2001 Mazda Millenia S with Miller Cycle Engine

Asked by Jan 09, 2012 at 03:58 PM about the 2001 Mazda Millenia 4 Dr S Supercharged Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just bought last weekend.  From reading blogs, now afraid of possibility of expensive repair of lysholm compresser oil seal being $4000.  Does anyone know of any clues in car performance that will let you know before they need replaced?

generally, the car will smoke a lot. blue smoke, which is oil. and there is no repair of the compressor, just replace. rebuilt ones are about 2k. people will tell you that oil in the intercoolers, or oily rotors(looking thru the inspection cover), and smoking on startup, but none of these are true indicators. a 10 year old car can have many problems. if the compressor is dead, the car will run, but will have very little power.
