Question about 2004 Mazda MPV

1 Answer

My engine sputters and jerks only when it is raining and defrost

You probably have a cracked distributer cap or bad spark plug wires. You can change both easily, but be very very very sure to keep the wires in the proper order. I find that changing one at a time works best.

You have a bad coil on one of your cylinders, most likely one in the rear. If it is in the rear, have all three done as most of the cost is in the labor. I only had one done and a month later another one in the rear went.

Cylinder 5 misfire


If you have a distributor cap on this engine and I presume you have by changing the wire. There is in all probability a crack in the cap at this cylinder or a track line down the outside of the cap from dirt etc allowing moisture to divert the spark from the plug. Spray crc or wd40 around the cap or remove cap and look for cracks at this point

SPARK AT COIL WIRE BUT NOT AT PLUGS

Engine turns over but no fire to the spark plugs


Check for cracks or white dust on the spark plug wires. If found replace the spark plug wires.
If the spark plug wires are fine, replace the cap and rotor.

If it still is not fixed check to see if the engine is throwing a code and post more info.
Do all the spark plugs not fire? check engine light on? Did anything happen right before that might have caused this? ex: washed the engine?

I HAVE 2002 ISUZU AXIOM WITH MULTIPLE MISFIRE. I HAD IT SCANNED AND IT SAID MULTIPLE CYLINDER MISFIRE. SO I CHANGED THE SPARK PLUGS. STILL THE SAME. ONE CYLINDER WAS DEAD. DID A COMPRESSION TEST ON THAT...


Probably you have a cracked or otherwise bad Distributor Cap. I would have changed the dist. cap and rotor first, and probably the wires too. You said you changed the boots, did that include the wires?

Pay attention to the order of wires before removing from cap. Draw yourself a diagram.
Are you sure you returned the plug wires to correct plug?

Takes a long time to start,when started it putts.


distributer cap and button are weak it sounds like
put the screw driver in the spark plug boot. close to a ground
make sure its not aluminum.
turn the engine over when its somewhat dark
look for the intensity of the spark.
if the sparks bright then its strong IE if the sparks not strong means its the coil that needs to be replaced.or the wires
More then likely its the cap button or plug wires..
if there is any cracks in the wires they will leak power out.. making it use more gas to make it run.

NO FIRE


hi there, you need to make sure all wires to spark plugs are tight and very snug, you will also need to check the distributer cap to make sure no burns are on it, and make sure the plugs are in proper firing positions, the spark rotation might be out of sequence.....also make sure spark plugs are clean of all oil, and dirt, firing pin in distributer cap might be bad.....hope this helps....shia

Surburban just died


Check to see if the fuel pump is working. It makes a whirring noise when key is turned to start. If you cannot hear tht noise. it is probably a bad fuel pump. Next check if it has spark. remove a sprk plug and using heavy gloves or bundled rag, connect plug to wire and hold thread of spark plug to ground. If it has spark. It will "spark " a bluish spark. If not, then the problem lies in the coils.or distributer . Check that all the wires are good and that they are inserted into the ditributer cap snug . Check cap for cracks also check the rotor. If cap is humid, spray WD40 into it to dissipate any moisture. Check coils (if equipped without distrbutor) . Have car scanned for free at any auto parts store to get a trouble code.
