Question about 1999 Mazda Protege

1 Answer

Engine runs rough only in reverse

As soon as I put my car in reverse it starts running rough and acts like it's going to die (while sitting or moving) but it hasn't died yet. You can even feel it shaking. What could this be? I'm up to date on maintenance.

SOURCE: Engine quits running after starting.

Check the fuel pump pressure while it is running and begins to die, the fuel pump has 2 circuits, one supplies power while you start the engine, the other after the engine is running, you may have an issue with the run circuit of the fuel pump.

SOURCE: 2005 Mazda 3 idles rough at stop light and sometimes dies

The ignition coil should be fine at that mileage. If spark plugs do not fix it suspect a faulty MAF sensor. If the MAF is sending a bad signal it will affect with the idle as the ecu is trying to compensate for the MAF.

SOURCE: 2005 Mazda 3 idles rough at stop light and sometimes dies

The problem is a faulty solenoid in the vapor recovery system. The solenoid is sticking open and allowing fumes from expansion of fuel in the fuel tank to enter the air intake and smother the engine. This is how the Mazda service tech explained it to me. It is a known problem on the Mazda 3 in various trims which Mazda refuses to acknowledge. Usually the check engine light comes on and the engine diag code reads mass airflow sensor, which is incorrect. I dealt with this for 6 months on my wife's 2005 Mazda 3i before the dealership figured it out. My cousin bought a 2007 Mazda Speed 3 which developed the same problem after a few months and was cured by the same fix.

My 95 olds cutlass ciera will start up and run for about 5 minutes, then start sputtering like it aint getting no gas, slow down then die till it cools off then starts back up, putting again, losing speed...


Check spark at spark plug using a spark tester and fuel pressure at the rail when it acts up. If the pressure is ok at the rail, but the injectors aren't firing, that can point to a bad computer.If the fuel pressure is present but the spark is not being supplied to spark plug wires to spark plugs, then an ignition module might be in need of replacement (the metal plate the coil packs sit on). If the engine has a service engine soon light before it dies, maybe check the codes that should be stored in the computer using an OBD-I scanner.
