When my car warms up it will not stay started it will die unless i keep my foot on the gas petal to prevent it from dying

Change the sir-filter and fuel-filter. Also clean out the air-filter box the filter sits in. If the problem persists, remove the air-intake duct that goes to the throttle body for obstructions. Also look at the air-horn and throttle-plate. Is there carbon in the air-horn and throttle-plate? If so, carefully clean the airhorn and throttle-plate with a clean, dust-free rag sprayed with automotive solvent.

If you still have the pronlem, you might consider the engine temperature-senser.

Mazda 1997 B4000 stalls out when you stop

There are several things to look at here #1 is the throttle plates dirty suggest cleaning them with a old soft bristle tooth brush and carb cleaner #2 check the egr vent solenoid if it is sticking the engine dies coming to a stop. #3 test the ECC relay for bad contacts this will shut it down with no codes.

I have a 2001 Mazda tribute it cranks but won't start.

You need 3 things for a car to start. Air, Fuel, Spark. Take some throttle body cleaner and spray it in the throttle body, If it starts you are not getting fuel. Use a spark tester and check if you have spark if not check crank position sensor, and coils. And obviously check your air filter box for anything keeping air from coming in.

Just put new motor in 2001 mazda 626 v6 no check engin light on but surges and has no power any ideas

Hello! The Throttle Positioning sensor (TPS) is the likely culprit...It is mounted to the throttle body and has a three wire connector...
Wire colors are Green/Red. Violet/Yellow and Black/Yellow. The connector may not be fully seated, or has an open wire...If it passes a visual inspection you can test with a voltmeter...With connector in place...And engine at idle...Set volt meter to measure 1 - 4 volts without changing scales...If meter probes will not fit the rear of the connector push in paper clips...connect + meter probe to Violet/Yellow...and - probe to Green/Red...You should read less than 1 volt at idle...Slowly increase engine speed...Voltage should rise to 4 volts SMOOTHLY...If it jumps, jerks or acts erratically The TPS is defective...Send a comment with results.....Guru...........saailer

Mazda rx8 flooded .brakedown come tried to start engine turned over !then starter got hot ,now dosnt turn over just clicks? any wdvice please

Your problem is common in the RX-8. It occurs when you start a cold engine and shut it off before it reaches normal operating temperature. If your car does flood, you can first try depressing the accelerator completely and holding it (which shuts off the fuel pump) and then crank the motor for about 10 seconds (not longer or you may damage your starter). If this procedure above does not work, here is the technique a Mazda dealership will normally use (to be performed at your own risk): 1. Use jumper cables to connect to another car battery. 2. Unplug Air pump connector (the black circular motor housing to the left of the oil filler cap) 3. Take fuel pump fuse out (number 22, a 20 amp, 3 from the top of the second column of the fuse box 4. Crank for 4 seconds, pause for 2 seconds, repeat for about a minute 5. Leave for a minute 6. Crank for 4 seconds, pause for 2 seconds, repeat for about a minute 7. Put fuel pump fuse back in 8. Crank for up to 10 seconds, if it catches but doesn?t start, stop cranking 9. If not started go back to step 3 10. If started, wait 30 seconds for oil pressure to rise 11. Stand on throttle until white smoke stops coming out of the exhaust 12. Disconnect jump leads 13. Leave to warm up on idle for a few minutes 14. Put air pump connector back on (see note 3) 15. Go for a nice long drive to recharge the battery

Reset throttle stop on mazda 3

Well, to get it in gear, you can do a few things. The first being press the clutch in and run it through all of the gears without applying throttle and then try reverse again. You can also let off the clutch half way and slightly pull the shifter in to reverse. As you let off, it'll eventually pop right in to gear.

Comment by mohammed387, posted on Oct 05, 2008The solution is to reset the ambient idle setting
This is easily done … all you need is a piece of wire (like a straightened glider clip) and a screwdriver.

When facing the engine with the bonnet up you will see a little black box on the top of the passenger side wheel arch, with the words "DIAGNOSIS" embossed on it. Open it up by pushing on the top of the side clip. There will be a number of cells inside, some with terminal points. The lid of the box contains the key to these cells. When you insert one end of your wire into the TEN cell and the other in the GND cell, it causes the ECU to be bypassed and the ambient idle setting will be used.

Follow the black air intake tube which runs in front of the engine block to where it meets the intake plenum on the driver's side of the engine - that’s the throttle body. On the top left side of the throttle body you will see a small raised cylindrical section, sometimes with a black plastic covering, which contains a large Phillips head-topped screw. This is the idle adjustment screw. It turns anti-clockwise to increase the ambient idle speed.

So now here is the procedure.
1) Make sure that the engine is warm, but not hot.
2) Turn off all electrical items (fan, radio and lights)
3) Start the car and after it settles into a regular idle notice where the needle is on the tachometer. It should be just over the graduation mark below the "1". (around 850/900 rpm)
4) Bridge the TEN and GND cells
5) You should notice the idle speed change after a few seconds.
6) Have a look at the tachometer. If the ambient idle speed moved then you have discovered the problem.
7) Slowly turn the idle screw until the revs come up to just over the graduation mark on the tachometer.
8) Do this slowly, as there is a slight lag in screwing and response.
9) If the radiator fans come on during the process then stop adjusting and wait for it to go off.
10) When you have it idling where you think it should be remove the bridging wire. In a few seconds the ECU idle setting will kick in. If the engine remains at the same rpm then you have matched the ambient idle to the ECU setting.
11) If not, then replace the bridge and adjust the idle screw,
12) Repeat steps 10 and 11 until the idle speeds are matched.
