Question about 1992 Mazda MPV

1 Answer

My mazda mvp van keeps dying on me while in motion. It used to just die when I had been driving fast like freeway driving only and then coming into town and braking or slowing down. Now it is dying out of the blue just driving down the road at like 30 to 40 mph.

    My 2004 MPV also seems to die around 20 mph. Taken it to a reputable non Mazda repair shop. They can't find the problem. This morning it flat out woundn't start. Had it towed, started right up at the repair shop.
    Need help find a solution to keep from wasting money.

    I have the same problem with a 2005 mpv that we bought new. It started dying while driving in summer 2008; it's now winter 2009 and it's done it every day for a week. It's been in Pacifico Mazda's service twice and they keep saying they can't replicate the problem. Tomorrow I'm taking it in for the third time, and I won't take it back until they acknowledge the problem and fix it.

    Engine runs for a while then just dies.

    Mechanic is suspecting the ECU is faulty. Looking for 1 and going to try that.

    sounds like vans have probs with the main brain.this can be expensive.mine is a 92 and has sat for 3yrs and doesnt seem to have this kind of prod. try asking if the brain from a 92 is compatiable with your system.

My 2001 mazda tribute dies while driving. And blows the fuse to my radio. It will stay on as long as I press the gas pedal but come to a stop light it will die, it will die at a stop light even after...

Hi,this could be a lot of things,I would say to you to first service the car,you need to get these parts done first so you can liminate these from the problem,some times a service with a tune up sorts the problem out,if you cant afford to have it servised then try just changing the spark plugs and air filter,as if the filter is derty when comeing to a stop the fuel air mixture will be wrong so will stall,if spark plugs are worn then when the car comes to a stop the sparkplugs will get wet and stall,hope this was some help.

when? all times. even going fast up hill?
if you see it only die just before stop signs?
that may be the EGR stuck open. (main EGR valve)

How does the power/econo button work on a 1993 mvp mazda van

The transmission select button varies the shift points , eg; when in 'econo' the trans will shift sooner than when in 'power' mode.
'power' will be to keep the transmission in a higher gear (engine RPMs higher = more power ).

Stop running while doing 65mpr on freeway, first started dieing with fast left turn, got worse started dieing when i hit a bup in road, then started dieing with right or lift fast turns and bups in road,...

Check the Timing belt and the fuses. If you have installed anything that has wires that you connected into the fuse block check those to make sure one hasn't come free and shorted a fuse on the fuse block or Power distribution box in the engine compartment. Also, and I know this is a long shot, check the oil level in the engine to make sure your bump is working and that the sensor is responding correctly. I had a sensor go out once and when the engine got low on oil it didn't register but when I made turns you could hear it and feel it with a lose of power.
