Question about 2007 Mazda 3 1.6

1 Answer

After putting gas into the car, it will not start. You have to pump the petal and turn the key about 3 to 4 times and it will start right up and drive fine until you put gas in it again.

suprisingly it could be the TCC Solenoid on ur transmission. it could be locked in a gear and when u go to change the gear it stalls out. sooner or later the clutch in the auto transmission will let go and allow you to move. its a long shot. does this happen after a dead cold start or have u been running the car for a while?

Before you replace the fuel pump, I would check the cheaiper parts first. Such as fuel filter and injectors.

SOURCE: I have a 2002 Mazda Protege 5 with a manual

Check you battery & cables. If top of cables & battery post are green or white. Mix water and baking soda or a coke and pour on the post. Rinse it off if it's was real bad you may need new cables. Sometime you need to remove the cables to clean. Always remove Neg - 1st then you can remove Pos + replace the Pos+ 1st. Should be a 10 mm wrench have a 8mm & a 1/2 in ready just in case. Use safety glasses.
Get a jump start or charge battery. It is likely you have a dead cell in your battery & will need to replace it. Work safe

My 1999 GMC sierra ran out of gas while i was driving, how do i start it up?

put gas in it and turn key on 3 times for 10 seconds. that should get it running. You should here pump run for 2 seconds everytime you turn key on. If not, you may have a bad pump. Sometimes you can get it running if you whack bottom the tank, while cranking. If that gets it running, it will need a pump.

How do i clear the change engine oil when i already changed the oil on the vehicle?

Try turning the truck to ON (not start) position and OFF position 3 times and then pumping the gas petal all the way to the floor 3 times.

If that doesn't work turn the key to the ON position and pump the gas 3 times, then OFF.

had P0753 code worked on by 2 different repair shops and still no resolution, HELP?! Have a 2007 Mazda 3 with 104,000 miles, 95% of it all highway been running great till now. Felt engine slip recently and engine light came on with code of PO753 - shift solenoid A malfunction. Brought to Mazda dealership wanted $2200 low to $3300 to replace my valve body assembly. So got 2nd opinion from local transmission specialist, changed the Shift Valve Solenoid, first time drove it for a day engine light came back on with AT light on as well. Brought it back he replace same solenoid thought maybe first was not good. Drove it for a day, engine light back on. Took it to Aamco they basically said it was electrical, not valve body assembly. They replaced some wiring in car, said it was fixed. Ran good for about 3 days, then engine light and AT light when engine slipped slight one more time. Took if back to Aamco today, diagnostics coming back clear, said maybe need to replace ECM at some point down the road but seems to be running fine. Feel screwed since engine light is still on, they tell me I'm fine driving on it. Said replacing the ECM was expensive and car appears to be running fine since diagnostics came back clear.Both places said dealership assessment with valve body replacement was not going to solve the issue, but issue not solved, any suggestions or thoughts? very confused what to do now paid out about $850 for both places so far. First guy gonna reimburse the solenoid part and some of the labor. No reimbursement yet from Aaamco said i can drive it with engine light on seems okay.
