Question about 2005 Mazda MX3

1 Answer

My fuxd mazda

Hi Tech,
thanks for the email. to clarify at present my car between 1000 revs and up is finding really hard to drive itself,specially going up a hill in 2nd gear it juders as im driving it almost like it is a kangaroo, it doesnt feel like its coming from the engine more like a sensor? throttle? a mechanic did suggest it could be the crank shaft sensor? the delay in any type of reaction due to the hiccuping is worrying as i have a small baby and dont want it to break down. The first time it happened the car actually stopped and wouldnt go an a main road. Since then they have changed the engine checked air flow metres, distibutors, leads plugs and put the computer into learn mode all of which hasnt helped. its back in the garage for the 6th time, if you can help i will be bloody happy!!

Tar very much

Sounds like you are in good hands, there is not magic bullet I'm afraid. The shop has to diagnose to figure it out.

Based on your description, could be anything:
  • throttle control (including A/C compensator);
  • auto choke;
  • engine management;
  • auto cruise (if your model has one)
A couple of clarifying questions:
  1. What is your standard set idling RPM, 1000? with or without A/C?
  2. Automatic or conventional/manual trnasmission?
  3. When was the last major tune-up? What parts were replaced?
  4. Does it sound like misfiring also?
  5. Any other indicators, hard starting, long warmup, stalling, excessive gas consumption, smarting to the eyes exhaust fumes?
  6. Does your battery light lits up?
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a 2002 Mazda MPV. When I start it and drive it revs really high. Sometimes i can take my foot off the gas and it will still accelerate, A LOT! Also when it does this it shifts really hard and there...

The transmission is slipping, have it checked for low fluid level, if that is ok then you need the transmission rebuilt or replaced with a factory rebuilt exchange unit.

Hello, My Mazda 6 2005 will not start on its own. It will, however, start with jumper cables. Once its on, it does not charge itself and if we don't rev the engine over 1000 RPMs, it dies. There's...

First make sure all battery connections to the alternator, starter motor/voltage regulator are clean and tight.
Make sure the ground strap is tight. That's a connection that goes from the engine block to the frame of the car.
If they if all connections are good, then you probably have a faulty alternator and or voltage regulator. On newer cars like yours the two are connected to each other and bought together as one assembly.

Look for restrictions in the intake air and exhaust systems. Check fuel pressure and delivery (fuel filter/pump). Check the ignition system as well. If the engine has a lot of miles, you may be experiencing combustion seal wear. These are amazing engines when they work correctly! Good luck!
