Could be a vacume leak, fuel filter, MAF mass air flow sensor. If the engine light is on then go to any parts place and have a free scaning for codes that will give you and us a better idea of whats going on.

start the car but do not drive it. look at the belt when it is running. if belt hops around then the tensioner is bad and not holding belt tight enough. or the belt itself may be bad. alo check for a bad idler pully for the belt.

Mazda tribute 2003,, will start but stalls,,after 2 0r 5 times will stay started,, after statred there are no problems,, It does not do it all the time.., when it stays stared the rpm go up to 2000 then ...


Most likely cause is a leaking vacuum hose on your air intake. It's a common problem on tributes but should be easy and cheap to fix. Look for cracks, holes, or roughness on the small black pipes near your engine and air intake and while you're there check the end connections are secure/tight. If you find cracks, holes, etc then replace the hose, if the connection is loose, then tighten it..

It could also be that your Mass Air Flow sensor is stuffed. Not as cheap, but still easy to fix.

Have a 1985 mazda rx7 will not idle .. cold start ok when choke is on once warm stalls and will not idle


There is a throtle adjuster right behind the carb. You can adjust it with a screw driver. If you are not sure where it is, just have someone press to gas pedal and you will see it move. RPM's at idle should be around 1,000 when it is idle once it has warmed up. Once that car warms up the choke moves back in and the car is probably stalling because it is not running enough RPM's.

My car drives itself, revs high when in park to point of stalling


Bad or dirty IAC( idle control Valve) Romve duct work from air cleaner. Spray throttle cleaner or carburator cleaner with car running at about 1000 -1200 rpms . Aim straight at the IAC inside the throat of the throttle body. It is to the side of the throttle body . Try to aim at the hole and spary 10 seconds into the throttle body. Turn of the engine and let it sit for a few minutes. Then repeat the process. If that does not work, replace the IAC.
