Question about 2007 Mazda 6 2.3

Had check engine and AT light come on going down hill today. need help diagnosing

The car is complete stock, never had an issue for 5 years. I have performed regular maintenance on it, with transmission flush ever 6 months. My girlfriend was driving it today and it felt like it shifted gears weirdly(her words). I didnt feel like it was that exactly when i had the same thing happen to me when i was checking on it tonight. Trying to figure out what the issue may be. Everytime the car gets turned off the AT light goes off. I had it running for 20 minutes and the light never came on. only when driving. the check engine light remains on at all times

    Took it to autozone and the code that is being spit out is P0715 for the input turbine speed sensor. I have heard it is a reasonably easy repair( 30 min) but i can't seem to find the part on autozone and schucks/o'reilly. Autozone couldn't even confirm i had the part in my car. Dealer wants 120 for the part and 154 for install. oy.

    Took it to the dealer and waived diagnostic testing because of the autozone free test. Had them replace the sensor at a cost of $244. don't know if they forgot to clear the code or if its coming back on for a deeper issue but the transmission was shifting a bit harder than normal from 1st to 2nd still. the check engine light was on when i picked up the car, and the AT light came back on again while driving down hill. I'm officially at a loss of what it could be

Likely an issue with the transmission. Check the transmission oil level with the engine running. If too high or low, then have a garage check your system. The 6 is sometimes prone to obvious transmission wear around 150,000 plus km.

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. it runs normal no engine noise change. i checked the fluid levels. it almost felt like driving over a small pothole or a skipped downshift. like a thud. and only made the one noise

SOURCE: shifting hard..check engine light always on

hi there, seems like your clutch is going out, and the fuel pump might be going as well, take it to a smog and repair shop or a shop that has an OBD2 reader, they should tell you, should be a charge for it since the thing is hand held and plugs in near your legs, or on the right or left side of the areas, sometimes behind the ashtray, if you look you'll see a odd shaped plug or a cover that says obd...thats how you read your check ingine light codes, usually portains to the smog or emmissions of the car, i have one so they should be able to help you out.....hope this helps you out....shia

SOURCE: Engine shakes when Idling/ Check Engine Light started blinking

i just fixed a similar problem on my van there is a rubber elbow on the end of the pvc hose that connects to the valve cover you can only buy the elbow with the hose and it costs about 100 bucks but i guess they have had to replace a lot of these because the new one looks twice has strong you just have to check and see if its collapsed in on itself preventing air movement or leaking the shop will charge you 175 dollars to fix it plus the part but it only takes 20 minutes good luck

If a stock computer program is put into a supercharged 2001 Saleen can it cause the pistons to blow, thus the engine.


a stock ECM in a super charged engine will make it run lean and that will melt pistons and burn valves
I would not be quick to blame the garage until I did a lot a verifiable research with speed shops and people who are well acquainted with super charged and turbo engines

I have a 2008 Kia Rio5 LX. If I have not been driving for several hours my car will start fine. However, if I have been driving, turn the car off, and try to re-start it a few minutes or even an hour later...


Did Advanced Auto drive the car with you in it?

If not you wasted your time there

Did they road test with a scan tool, to check all data
& check fuel trim ? No-- wasted their time & yours

What did they do?
Just check for generic codes
That is of no value in diagnosing a drivability issue

May have a fuel pressure issue
May have ignition issues
Egr System issues when going up hills

May have been running poorly for a year &
ruined the exhaust converter & it is now partially
blocked

Timing belt may have jumped some teeth

I need a picture or diagram of a 1994 Cadillac DeVille 2 door 4.6 Ltr Serpintine Belt


you can sometimes find these online, but a lot of the time the diagrams from the internet are listed under the wrong year or model of car. The easiest way to be sure you have the correct diagrams for your car is to buy a Haynes manual for it. These have all of the diagrams that you will need, as well as specific directions and helpful hints about doing the work yourself, and checking your work for accuracy. In the future, you will also find that the Haynes manual is great for diagnosing and resolving other issues you may have with your car. It is written by mechanics, based on a total tear down and rebuild of the car, and includes lists of common problems and fixes, engine schematics and diagrams, and step-by-step instructions on how to diagnose and repair every stock part on your car. I have not been without one in 10+ years that I have owned and been working on my own cars.
Haynes manuals are available at most auto-parts stores and some larger bookstores. They are specific to the make and model and year of your car, so the information is always spot-on.

Most likely you have a bad COP (Coil On Plug) .
Maybe more than one. Very common ford problem for last 12 years.
If you get a MIL Light on the dash (the wrench),check for a PO300 Code.
A PO304 would be coil #4,PO306 #6 Etc.
Cyl 1 thru 4 on pass side
Cyl 5 thru 8 on driver side,front to back

Also hills cause a hi engine vacuum and thus a possible EGR Valve going bad. You can unplug the vacuum lines and plug, to diagnose that issue.

Also leave the EGR disconnected if your working on coil issues. Just note the MIL light will stay on all the time,and remember to check your 300 codes if you feel a hesitaton or miss.

Check Engine Light is On


You did what thousands of people do they get a code and jump straight to replace a part no testing just guessing. code 43 is a fuel system problem code sure enough you absolutely need proffessional diagnostic help with this one you cannot go on another hondas code 43 because you can have two hondas exact same symptoms and even the color of the interior and have two completely different problems I realize it costs money to diagnose the problem but which is cheaper to pay diagnostic and only change the one bad thing or replace part after part then take it to be diagnosed and have them change one part?
Cmon Please do the right thing for your wallet honda is not a car for anyone but a professional to diagnose and fix.
