Mazda Tribute 2003 Transmission Problem

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!

    2005 Mazda Tribute also shuts off after reversing out of driveway and shifting into first to accelerate up the hill. Need ideas as to why; can't afford transmission replacement. Suggestions?

SOURCE: My reverse went out on my Transmission.

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.

SOURCE: Gear shift is broken in a 2001 Mazda Tribute 3.0

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.

SOURCE: 2001 Mazda Tribute No transmission-- it will

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

I have a 2001 Mazda Tribute my first started up it


Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid is suspect, also is the Shift Control Solenoid (they are twin cylinder assembly looking like the old blinker solenoids) attached to the transmission, and with 2 wire pigtail. Check for a short~continuity between heater fan hot wire and the Shift Control System pigtail wires. Thank You for using FixYa.com Let us know if you still have a problem!

Mazda tribute 2003 transmission not working. i can move the into D 2,1 R but car wont move an inch


since you had a water mixed with transmission fluid,the only thing I personally believe that is no need to continue playing with as the water is the worst enemy of the automatic transmission. makes all the o rings to expand and corrosion . It happened to me a while ago and I reconditioned the Gear box.

TRIBUTE TURNS OFF


suprisingly it could be the TCC Solenoid on ur transmission. it could be locked in a gear and when u go to change the gear it stalls out. sooner or later the clutch in the auto transmission will let go and allow you to move. its a long shot. does this happen after a dead cold start or have u been running the car for a while?
