Mazda MPV 2002 Power brakes lose power with a cold engine

My MPV recently began having problems with the brakes from a cold start. The brakes feel stiff, as if they are full of air. And the cars response is slow on the brake. After a while, the power comes in and the pedal depresses easily. I'm pretty sure the power is not running to the brakes. I just replaced the pads and the brake fluid, hoping that would do the trick, but no luck. I'm sure there is something wrong inside the master cylinder but they said it all checks out at BrakesPlus. Is there a valve inside that could be stuck? Sunday I drove 2 hours from Fort Collins to Denver in 0 degree weather and the power brakes were not working the whole way.

    I have a 2001 Mazda MPV. Power brakes do not work when the engine is cold in cold weather. After warm up, brakes work fine.

There is a vacuum check valve to the brake booster. This will be the likely fault.

I have a Mazda MPV 2003, i bought from japan, 7 months ago, this van was running well until two days ago, it stsrts and cut off, starts again and while driving it is losing power then it will speed up


Before any diagnostics, I would run a tank of gas with a bottle of fuel dryer and injector cleaner to ensure that the engine racing isn't resulting from moisture and clogged injectors.

1998 mazda mpv code p0170 erase code car runs fine but when i stop for a few minutes it is hard to start and runs rough the engine light comes back on and the code will read p0170 again


This code indicates a fuel ratio problem. I would start by inspecting all the vacuum lines, including the pcv hose and power brake hose. Carefully inspect the air intake hose. This is the large hose between the throttle body and the airflow meter. If this hose is cracked or loose the computer will not sense how much air is being drawn into the engine and it will be hard to start.

Possibly a bad / leaking brake booster basically creating a major vacuum leak when the brake pedal is depressed. Had one in the shop just last week doing exactly the same thing & that was the problem.

Is there a diagnostic code "reader" on the Mazda MPV 1993?


I am having a similar problem and my mechanic thinks it's a fuel regulator. Part was ordered and it's being replaced this week. We'll see. Unrelated, I'm/we're having a heck of a time finding an oil pan...mine is very blistered....but it is 17 years old.

REPAIR MANUAL NEEDED!!!!


The 2002, 2003 and 2004 Mazda MPV's all use the same Ford 6 cyl. 3.0 duratec engine. The Ford Escape and Mazda Tribute of those years use the same engine. Therefore if you need an inexpensive engine repair manuel for your 2002 MPV, get the Haynes ($20.00) 2001-2007 Escape/Tribute manuel. Mazda sells the a MPV shop manuel for $180.00. I also own a 2002 Mazda MPV LX. 75k miles.
