Question about Mazda MPV

1 Answer

I have had my van towed 3 times within the last 2 weeks...diagnostic test stated apparently that the alternator needed to be repaired....but the van still does not work. It acts as if not getting enough gas, you could be driving along and it will just slow down and have no power, let it sit for a few minuits and head out again...cannot even attempt to go up any hills I would never make it. Its a 2000 Mazda MPV.

Just wondering what is: P1811 Maximum Adapt And Long Shift


P1811
The transmission pressure is modified by an adaptive modifier which controls the shift execution time. This diagnostic tests the time required to accomplish the shift. If the shift takes longer than 0.65 seconds and the adaptive modifier cannot shorten this time, then a counter increases by one.
If the PCM detects a counter value of 2 during one trip, then DTC P1811 sets. DTC P1811 is a type C DTC
The 1-2, 2-3 or 3-4 shift is longer than 0.65 seconds, twice in one trip.
?€¢
Ask the customer about possible overloading, exceeding the trailer towing limit, or towing in overdrive.


?€¢
Ensure that the current PCM calibration is correct for the final drive ratio.


  1. Use the scan tool snapshot mode in order to record the shift times.
  2. Drive the vehicle in D4 in order to obtain a 1-2, 2-3 and 3-4 upshift.
  3. Record the shift times.
Did all the shift times exceed the specified value?
0.65 seconds
Perform the Line Pressure Check Procedure.
Refer to the Line Pressure Check .
Is the line pressure within specifications?

2004 Chevy Cavalier - car cranks over but won't start


Well, let me try to say this without being too offensive.....
Your car only quit running on you once. I find it really hard to believe that all of the parts you replaced so far, needed to be replaced to get the engine running again. It is EXTREMELY UNLIKELY that all of these "failures" would occur all at the same time.

You would rather pay for $500+ in parts that the car apparently did not need, than to pay to have it towed to a shop where they have the knowledge, training and equipment necessary to properly diagnose the vehicle and get it running again? And now you want someone to tell you what is causing the problem with your vehicle without the benifit of any diagnostic testing?

There is NO WAY that ANYONE can accurately tell you what is wrong with your vehicle without following the correct diagnostic procedures recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. The most anyone can do online without proper diagnosis and testing is GUESS! You seem to be doing that very well on your own.

THE BATTERY LIGHT COMES ON TO ALERT YOU TO THE FACT THAT THE BATTERY IS NOT BEING CHARGED BY THE ALTERNATOR, IT DOESN'T MEAN THE BATTERY HAS A PROBLEM, HAVE THE ALTERNATOR TESTED FOR PROPER OPERATION.

1998 windstar van: charging system light goes


It could mean the alternator has gone bad already... with the car off, the battery leads should read 11-12V.. with the car on, the battery should read 13-14V.. if it's lower then it's not charging your battery and if it's higher, it's damaging your battery....

HARD TO START LIKE NOT GETTING FUEL


The van will start fine for periods of 2 - 3 weeks then will turn over & won't start. Usually within the next day or two it will start & run fine
& the cycle repeats. This has been going on since Jan. I've had it towed 5 times, looked at by 2 different mechanics & a chev dealership
mechanic. Still nobody has a clue whats going on. The van has 94,000
miles & besides this problem runs fine. I've had it for almost 7 years
without any other problems. This is beyond the point of being frustrating. I use the van for my business & its embarrasing when
I have to get it towed from a customers house. If anyone has any
ideas it would be greatly appreciated. Thank You, Bob
