Question about 2002 Mazda Tribute

1 Answer

Noisy noisy noisy!

I have a 2002 mazda tribute v-6 and it is so noisy on the road that I cannot hear myself thinking.  Forget about talking on the cellphone.  Why is it so noisy?  I have about 70,000 miles on it and there are no other problems. Please help. Thanks, Jill

Without being there, it is hard to say. You need to consider tire condition - large mud tires are noisy; tires over inflated will be noisy; a bad driveline u-joint will make noise; drive line bearings, wheel bearings all could be a factor. have a mechanic friend ride with you and help pinpoint the cause.

LOUD TIRE NOISE...WHAT WOULD YOU REPLACE THE ORIGINAL CONTINENTAL TIRES WITH? IT IS A 2005 MAZDA TRIBUTE. I HAVE BEEN DOING SOME RESEARCH AND IT SEEMS THAT THIS IS AN ONGOING PROBLEM THAT PERHAPS NO TIRE...


tyre noise depends on the tread pattern/road surface material.so it is a bad tyre depot that cannot tell you which are quiter than other makes,same as ones that last longest. most customers buy the cheapest they can get and complain about the car...)any block pattern tyre will be noisy(look at the tread pattern on a limo)the only way you can be sure of getting a quiter ride is to email the maker direct.BUT be warned you may pay 3--4 times the price of a "standard tyre" and any suv is no limo......no block pattern, no grip in mud/snow....

Mazda tribute 2002 stalling


1. will it stay running if you foot is sligtly on the gas.
if so common problem it the IAC valve located on top of the throttle body. it controls ait into the engine when throttle is closed.
2. do you hear loud fog horn like sound or hissing. this could indicate a vaccum leak.
3. are there any performance problems while driving.

my best guess would be the IAC (idle air control) valve

Mazda Tribute 2002 engine cuts out randomly


I had a Mazda 626 with a similar problem, the car seemed to 'shut down' with no warning, even at highway speeds, as if I just turned the ignition key to 'Off'; After trying to fix it unsuccessfully by replacing several electrical parts, the problem was found to be a defective ignition switch, it was replaced and the problem went away.

REPAIR MANUAL NEEDED!!!!


The 2002, 2003 and 2004 Mazda MPV's all use the same Ford 6 cyl. 3.0 duratec engine. The Ford Escape and Mazda Tribute of those years use the same engine. Therefore if you need an inexpensive engine repair manuel for your 2002 MPV, get the Haynes ($20.00) 2001-2007 Escape/Tribute manuel. Mazda sells the a MPV shop manuel for $180.00. I also own a 2002 Mazda MPV LX. 75k miles.
