The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

The car starts but dies as soon as you put your foot on the accelerater and then won't start again. The battery is fine and it's not the timing belt any suggestions please?


Sound like fuel problem,Vehicle needs a set amount of pressure to spay out of the injectors,this atomization ensure proper comustion,If it was MAF(mass air flow) obviously you would be able to restart,but would complain about hesitation,When you step on the gas you apply a load on the engine and a good working fuel pump ensure it meets that load3_17_2012_7_10_37_pm.jpg

My 2003 mazda mpv sputters between 45 and 55mph. it accelerats fine. i replaced the plugs and one coil.


You may have dirty fuel injectors, get a good fuel injector cleaner and add it to a full tank of gas. Try this a couple of times, if it does not work you will have to have them cleaned or replaced. But have them checked first.
