If this is idleing with the ac on then the idle up speed may require adjustment. not a good practice to leave any vehicle idling with ac on unless idle up control is set high enough to compensate for this practice. can be annoying to drive if set up too high

Several things can cause a car to die. The fact that you don't have any engine codes eliminates some of them. First thing you should try if you haven't is change the fuel filter. Make sure there are no damp, or damaged electrical components. It could be faulty spark plugs, or wires, or a vacuum leak. Check carefully under the hood for vacuum leaks. With the engine running, wiggle all the vacuum hoses around and check for cracked loose or broken hoses. They will make a hissing sound when you find it. A stethoscope, or a length of fuel line held to your ear can help a lot. Check all intake bolts for tightness too. Good luck.

My 2001 mazda tribute dies while driving. And blows the fuse to my radio. It will stay on as long as I press the gas pedal but come to a stop light it will die, it will die at a stop light even after...


Hi,this could be a lot of things,I would say to you to first service the car,you need to get these parts done first so you can liminate these from the problem,some times a service with a tune up sorts the problem out,if you cant afford to have it servised then try just changing the spark plugs and air filter,as if the filter is derty when comeing to a stop the fuel air mixture will be wrong so will stall,if spark plugs are worn then when the car comes to a stop the sparkplugs will get wet and stall,hope this was some help.

Problems with cold engine


It is the head gasket. Have that replaced and you will be fine. You have an air leak. I was told by the mechanic at mazda that the anti freeze eats away at the gaskets. CRAZY, but it works. I still have an issue with my 2001 Tribute revving while in park. Its always something.
