Is there a way of making the solenoids for vdi/ssv last longer? Thinking of trying to vent the bonnet or engine bay some how.
Had a few blips today on the way to Prescott Hill climb.
Then on the way back, the SAP solenoid kept illuminating the CEL. Low circuit /Heat failure.
I've zero'd that code out now on mazda edit.

Also had a momentary drop in power for a split second and then it resumed normal service.

Good news... The replacement rack solved the knocking noise. I ordered a rack from Charles trent off ebay and it turned up damaged sent them an email complaining and they refunded me straight away. All I had to do was swap the steering angle sensor over and it was fine!
