Question about 2000 Mazda Millenia

1 Answer

Car trouble I have a 2000 mazda millenia that i am having car trouble with, it is a 6 cyl. When I crank the car it idles fine, then the idle starts to go up and down. The check Engine light is flashing, and when you put it in gear and try to drive the car will seem to have some one in front pushing back. The farther you drive the worse the symptoms get. when you start the car back up again though it starts the process all over again. I have checked the fluid levels, but it seems that there is a sound near the belts, however not an overwhelming sound. any advice?

My 95 mazda millenia s turns over no start repaced fuel regulator, new plugs, geting good spark, checked vacume lines, checked grounds seams to only flood its self out

Try cracking the throttle while cranking. Idle air valve may have failed shut. Otherwise, might be the timing chain slipped a tooth. Try compression test.

Why does my mazda millenia ildle so high and theres no check light on

The most simple reason is a vac leak or a faulty idle air control valve.
The computer controls idle speed by the amount of air allowed into the throttle body.
The throttle plate could be stuck open, or the idle air valve could be stuck, or you could have a large vac leak.

Mazda did once use a supercharger of a very unusual design that used pressure waves from the exhaust to create depressions in the chambers of a rotating honeycomb.

Replacing the belt and correctly tensioning it restored full power.

If you ever have an oil leak it really should be fixed right away unless this happened all at once. Go to a local mech or if there is an Autozone around go there and have them check the Engine Light code for you for free. You will have more info to work with.
