The humming could be a result of low power steering fluid.

Outside seal jobs rarely ever work in any application to contain fluids.

This is a semi difficult task. There is a "clock spring" in the steering column that allows for operation of the controls on the steering while turning. There is also an airbag connection that if disconnected and a spark (static) should occur the airbag could go off and cause severe injury. There is also specialized steering wheel pullers needed. If you have never performed this it would be best to have a professional do it.

A used computer is not a good replacement. The computer could be bad, a static discharge while replacing the computer could have damaged it. The coil could be bad. Does the computer communicate with a scan tool? Is there spark at the plugs? Is there fuel pressure at the Schrader valve? Computers are not reset, they are flashed (programed) for the vehicle they are installed in.

check compression, plugs, wires, injector, one of these will tell where to go with diagnoses.

I just fell into the same situation. My interior driver's door handle just does nothing all of a sudden. I went on the Mazda Forum website and came away with at least a temporary fix.
The lock switch can be used to open the door from the inside by pushing it the opposite way it's pushed when locking the door. In other words, the rear portion of the lock switch needs to be depressed and the front portion needs to be pulled away from the door. It may be difficult to do with the trim piece around the lock still on. The trim piece can be removed by pulling the small plastic cap away from the base (it's on a plastic hinge) off and unscrewing the holding screw underneath it. Pull the handle away from the door and the trim piece will come right off.
I'm using that as a temporary solution now until I get a new/used door assembly.
Hope that helps.

Check fuel pressure. Quick test is to use fast start . but if you have been going at this a while, the plugs could be gas fouled.

Sounds like there is lots to fix,, and that the fix is urgently needed. The engine light warns there are issues with sensors that may affect fuel economy and, possibly, even the lifespan of the engine.....Modern cars have sensors and modules that transmit iformation via an on board diagnostics system so that the texhnician can tell what is wrong with it. Your car needs this service from what you describe. The information cannot be got any other way ...You should probably have this gone sooner rather than later

yes could very well be an exhaust leak.but that should be kinda loud and annoying..also u could have a slight whistling sound coming from ur air intake hose coming from air cleaner box to ur intake or throttle body or ur air inlet goin to the motor. when the motor is accelerated it would produce a high pitch sound like a whistling .hope this can help

2001 Mazda... | Answered on Jun 28, 2015

This does not sound right at all. I have never heard of an EGR valve blowing holes! Buy a replacement like Ray says. If this happens again plan on replacing your exhaust system, all parts, because if it is clogged this is how car fires occur. Don't take the chance.
