Question about 2008 Mazda Tribute
1. Typically Mazda builds engines with very close tolerances therefore they are HIGH interference engines.
2. Every car manufacturer has specialty tools that are needed. This includes all foreign and domestic.
3. Any tool that is REQUIRED to repair a car will not be cheap because the manufacturer does not want you tinkering with it. Therefore they engineer it to require the tool.

Take the vehicle to Auto Zone or another parts store that will read the engine fault code from the ECM for you. Most will do it for free. Depending on how long it has been since you replaced the plugs and wires on your vehicle you may have a bad spark plug or plug wire that is causing the problem. Easy enough to fix if you don't have to pull the air intake assembly to change the back 3 plugs. If you do have to pull this you should get a chiltons repair manual so you ahve instructions on how to remove and replace the intake assembly.

If you hear the motor running, you are probably right that the cable that attaches to the antenna mast is broken. You should be able to buy this part only. Check Ebay. Sometimes you can buy the mast portion with the cable attached only. It's a lot cheaper than the whole assembly with the motor.Here's a link to one.

mcdevito75 here, That is a heavy duty job even for a good, good weekend mechanic, The truth is, as you know, you can run into a dozen problems that can and will leave you haveing to tow your vehicle to the shop. First you would need the TOOLs in American and Metric sizes as both American and Metric Nuts and Bolts are included on your Mazda, Then a Hydraulic jack that can hold at least 1 corner of the Mazda off the ground and--be able to with-stand the rocking motion as you did the job, Then you"d have to be concerned with parts, suppose you get the wrong parts, suppose you find a frozen or broken part, such as a brake hose, now you would have to bleed the brake system too. It"s very smart you are willing to do your own brakes BUT EVEN WISER TO KNOW, TO MANY PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE JOB. BEST BET, look for a sale on Brakes with-in you area, The tools, time and effort even if the job went smoothly, would cost about the same as the shop. Look for a sale, and have the shop do your brakes.
