Question about 2002 Mazda Tribute
Hi, I have recently been having a problem with my 2003 Mazda Tribute. When I start it i let it heat up and reverse out of my driveway, but when i try to shift gears to drive, the engine shuts off. Do you know what the problem could be? This always happens when i put it in reverse and then drive.. Thanks!
The trans is an electronic type, if it is an electronic control causing the problem you should have a trouble code, have a quick test done, Kragen and others do this for free, if nothing shows then the problem may be dirty fluid or a stuck solenoid on the valve body.

Mine did the same thing on May 31. Turns out the cable that passes through the firewall from the steering column to the side of the transmission had come disconected at the transmission. I was able to re-connect it using a tie wrap for a temporary solution. Hope this helps.

The same thing happened to my 2001 Mazda Tribute. It was stuck in Neutral. The shifter cable fell off the little metal post under the steering column. To fix it I removed the plastic column covers. Put the round end of the cable back on the little silver colored post. Then secured it on the post with a ring type push nut from Ace Hardware. Total cost of repair was sixty cents. The cables are not always broken. They just fall of the little post.

The plastic rod ends on the cable assy that goes between the shft lever in the colum and the transmittion are worn. I change the cable for the same reason last week and that fixed the problem.
The cable part number is MZEC01-46-500E the price from the Mazda dealer was US $ 64.98. Is easy to change all you need is aphillips screw driver & pliers
