what happened is that when they took of the corroded cable then reconnected it , the ECM (computer reprogramed itself. then it started back up because the problem was not resolved. try this suggestion.
The problem may be a buildup of carbon or fuel varnish deposits in the idle speed control valve (also called the idle air control valve or IAC valve). The cure for this condition is to clean the valve with some aerosol throttle cleaner or engine top cleaner. disconnect the air ductwork from the throttle body. Start the car and run at about 1500 rpms spray the cleaner directly into the throat of the throttle body. Turn off the engine and let sit for a few minutes. Then repeat the process a couple of times. if that does not work, you can remove the IAC and clean it by spraying into the two holes on the underside of the valve. If not, then you need to replace the valve.

Only way to know whats going on is to retrieve the trouble code for the check engine light by using a OBD II diagnostic's tool, it's likely the poor hesitation in the vehicle's acceleration is causing the check engine light to appear, the OBD II diagnostic tool plugs into a data link connector under the driver's side dash, you can buy one at most auto parts store's, or if you don't want to buy one some auto parts store's will do a autoscan of your vehicle at no cost.

Hi, due to how the newer cars and trucks are built, the only way to actually find the issue here is to run a diagnostic scan. most of the time when the check engine light illuminates, its because of a bad sensor that is either not connected correctly or it has some sort of internal malfunction that cancels out its signal producing abilities. Example- If the crank sensor becomes unstable, it will cause the ECM to send the code and it will simultaneously shut down the fuel pump as well, rendering the vehicle useless.
Most auto zone stores can preform this diagnostic scan fo a reasonable price. they can pull the code and you can purchase the troubled sensor or part there as well.
Please rate and god bless:)

Take the car to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool and retrieve the fault code(s) from the computer. Most parts stores will do this for free. The fault codes should narrow down what the problem or potential problem may be. Hope this helped and best wishes.

I had a misfire problem with my 2004 mazda 6. mine was the V6 and it was the #5 that was misfiring. i cant imagine what the loss of power feels like if the #1 is misfiring, but i replaced my ignition coil. I cant be too sure what the 4 cyl engine block looks like, but if you have the v6, its gonna take some time to replace because youll have to remove the air intake manifold thing on top of the engine block to get to the #1, #2, #3 pistons.
