SOURCE: I was told there are two oil pans on Mazda Tribute

There are two gaskets, one is between the lower pan and the upper pan, and the second is between the upper pan and the engine. You only need to replace the gasket that leaks. If both are leaking, replace them both. To find out where the leaks are, raise the car, get underneath, and look closely all around the oil pans to see where the oil is coming from. Use a flashlight if necessary. You should be able to trace any leaking oil upward to its source.

The oil pan gaskets are not necessarily the only sources of oil leaks. Check to see if any oil is coming from behind the timing cover, and look for oil coming from the valve cover gasket.

2003 mazda tribute is leaking water into the fuse box on drivers side after it rains. How do I fix it?


Most likely some debris such as leaves and pine needles as clogged the drain channels on the fender.Pop the hood and look for a buildup of crud in the corner of the windshield and the engine compartment,usually a rubber gasket in that area that allows water to drain behind the fender.
Or it may be a leak in the sealant around the windshield

Does the oil pan need to be removed on a 2002 Mazda Tribute V6 in order to replace the timing chain and crankshaft seal?


It does not have to be completely removed but it has to be loosened off so that the timing cover can be removed to get to the chain . The seal is in the timing cover so it is only necessary for the chain.

Dealer said aluminum oil pan was becoming porous 2002 mazda tribu


Not likely. My 2001 Tribute developed a leak at the oil pan gasket about two years ago. I got the gasket replaced, but it was expensive. I would take it to another shop and get a second opinion.

There is a whistling sound underneath the brake pedal after I press the brake on my mazda 2005 tribute


The last poster is absolutely correct. The Brake Booster is leaking engine vaccuum into the vehicle through the firewall. This is a fairly common issue on older Tributes. There is an updated Brake Booster and Gasket available from Mazda. I do suggest replacing both the booster and gasket but just a gasket may do. Good luck.
