Question about 2002 Mazda MPV

Open Question

2002 mpv when <20 degrees runs & shifts rough code P0113, more

Had many problems resulting in the replacement of MAF, ECT, throttle valve, cam position sensors, idle solonoid, PVC hose and valve and just for hahas all the ignition coils and intke/plenum gaskets.

Finally got it to run nice and then on the first cold day it idled and ran rough, shifted very hard, the CEL, battery, and TC off lights on the dash came on, the OVD off light started blinking, and code P0113 was thrown. Once the sun came out and it warmed up above 20 degrees, it started to run fine and all the lights on the dash went out. Replaced the MAF with another on the next cold day in case we had a bad one - but same problem. The engine warms up fine and maintains steady temp so not thinking its the ECT.

I am a bit concerned as the aftermarket MAFs did not fit int he original intake housing. Finaly had to buy a $180 unit from carquest that was supposedly OEM - it still ahd the bigger MAF - but came with a complete new intake housing that fit between the air filter and the throttle body. Could this new MAF be the wrong one for this year? Any other thoughts? Running out of options and nearesdt Mazda dealer is 60 miles away.

    I'm having a similiar problem. I have had the engine light on for some time. My codes have come up showing the PO113 and the MAF, coil, etc. I've changed the coil, pcv hose. Just recently when I engage the car in reverse the battery light and the O/D off light blink on and occasionally has some rough shifting. It's gotten chilly around here but San Antonio doesn't really get super cold. Let me know if you find the fix - all solution.

    Good Luck.

    I am having the exact same problem. We were told by a Mazda dealer that it was the alternator - $700 dollars later - lights still are coming on. Now our mechanic told us to go back to the dealer and see if the computer needs to be 'flashed'. Or, we would need a new PCM (I think this is the name) and it will be $500 used or about $1100 new just for the part.

SOURCE: #5 cylinder misfire

I have a corolla and had #4 cylinder misfire also diagnosed at autozone. After changing the spark plugs, problem persisted, along with the same error code, so they recommended changing the spark plug wires, and that is what fixed it. I would have changed the rotor cap too, but was low on dough. Glad that was not the problem.

SOURCE: My '01 Tribute V6 3.0 has a rough idle at a cold

I had the same cold start/ rough idle problem. The dealer spent 6 different sessions on this, costing me about $1800 total, before I saw the online discussion of lower intake manifold gasket. The shop was skeptical, but I authorized the gasket replacement alone (they wanted to replace the PCM!) That was it! Unfortunately they refused to adjust the unneeded repairs, parts and diagnosis even partly, but the cold start problem is solved, and my Mazda has a lot of new parts, sigh!

2007 maxima,code: p0507,p0113 ,p0102. what is next step should i do ? need new MAF ?

code p 0507 refers to idle speed control (ISC) system---higher than expected===causes --wiring --ISC actuator/IAC valve---throttle motor---throttle valve tight sticking---ECM

code p 0113 refers to intake air temperature (IAT) sensor--circuit malfunction===causes --wiring open circuit/short to positive ---wiring short to ground ---ground wire defective---IAT sensor ---ECM

code p 0102 refers to mass air flow (MAF) sensor / volume air flow (VAF) sensor --low input====causes --wiring short to ground --MAF/VAF sensor---ECM
you should take it to an accredited service center that has experience on you make of car or you could be wasting money replacing what isn't broke
simple testing will show the faulty item

2006 cts 2.8 making loud ticking noise ,running rough and has misfire codes po300,301,303,305

codes p 300 is a random/ multiple misfire===causes spark plugs---HT leads ---injectors/s--ignition coil/s--low compression---wiring
codes p 301,303,305 are misfires detected for no 1,3 5 cylinders === causes listed are engine mechanical fault---wiring---ignition/fuel systems ---injectors---ECT/MAF sensors---ECM
You do not mention if this is a v6 engine in which case no 1,3 5 will be all in the one bank head
With the loud ticking noise that amounts to a mechanical fault associated with that bank
could be loose valve seat inserts , cam lobes failure or cam follower failure or hydraulic lifters problem even loose cam shaft bearings / caps
I would be inclined to remove the rocker cover and check for metal , loose bolts , excessive valve clearance before I went plugs etc
the main indicator for the answer is the loud ticking noise which indicates a valve train problem which will cause the rough running

2002 300m brake, abs, trac off lights on with P0113 code

Intake air senor, did you plug it back in. On the plenum between the air filter and throttle body. They rarely go bad. If plugged in , check for a broken wire right behind the plug. they break inside the coating.

Engine runs rough if it warms up won't start dtc codes p0118 and p0113 just did head gasket and replaced exhaust manifold all new gaskets new plugs wires and coolant engine timing marks are all c

P0113 Intake Air Temperature Circuit High Input

Low temperature results in a high signal voltage. When the PCM sees a signal voltage higher than 5 volts, it sets this P0113 check engine light code.

P0118 - The engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor is a thermistor screwed into a coolant passage in the cylinder head. Sensor resistance is high when coolant temperature is low and resistance drops when coolant temperature increases. The powertrain control module (PCM) provides a 5 volt reference and a ground to the sensor. The PCM monitors voltage drop to determine coolant temperature. If the ECT reads less than freezing temp. when engine has been running for more than a few minutes, the PCM determines a circuit fault and sets this code. Or if the PCM determines the sensor resistance is out of specs, this code is set.
Potential Symptoms

Symptoms of a P0118 could include:

  • Very poor fuel economyicon1.png
  • A no start condition
  • Vehicle may start, but run very poorly, blowing black smoke, running very rough and misfiring
  • Illumination of MIL

A code P0118 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • A bad connection at the sensor
  • An open in the ground circuit between the ECT sensor and the PCM
  • A short in the voltage feed between the sensor and the PCM
  • A bad PCM (less likely)
  • A bad temperature sensor (shorted internally)

Where is the piont where you plug in the diagnostic connector on a 2001 petral vitara

The common faults on this engine are EGR valve and IAC valve.
The EGR causes rough running and cutting out,
The IAC causes just cutting out without the rough running, stalling at junctions etc is the usual complaint.
If you pm me the cars reg, chassis no etc i could see if i could email you the manual its a pdf so should be quite straight forward.

Changed maf sensor because of p0113 code stillhave problem after i changed sensor battery light came on fixed bad belt could belt have caused the pcm to not read the 5v it needed to wor k the iat sensor?

P0113 is air temp circuit high. The maf sensor (mass air flow) sensor just measures the amount of air entering the engine. The iat (intake air temp) sensor is the one that detects the temperature of the air.
Change that sensor, and the code should disappear. It is located in the intake manifold or air plenum.
