Try diagnosing it yourself first, remove the crank sens clean it off, connect a multimeter set to 200-500 ohms will do, see if it reads if it does connect the sensor back to the car with the meter still attached set it to ac turn the engine over it should be between .2 and 2 volts repeat on the cam sensor. see were you go from there
hope this helps

well, with all that you have changed the only two possible things that are left PCM and the ECM....

Do you have an alarm system on this vehicle? If you purchased this car second hand it may have something that is inhibiting the engine from firing. From what you have told us here that would be where I would start looking.

I really hope this is helpfull

i had a similar problem with my 626,what sorted it for me was to clean the crankcase breather tube on top of the rocker cover.The little valve inside this seems to stick but spraying some air intake cleaner (comes in an aerosol can) frees it out and allows the engine to breath better and so tick over evenly.

SOURCE: Engine warning light on Mazda MPV 2002

There seem to be 4 sensors along the way in the air intake and emissions system.

My Check Engine light indicated a bad sensor 1, bank 2 code (I think).

I had my mechanic replace the sensor that was indicated as faulty... cost = $191.

Then the Check Engine light came on again (with a different code), and I had to leave the van with him all day.

Cost to replace and install that sensor = $115.

My advice: if the Check Engine light stays on *AND* your vehicle is riding rough, get it fixed.

Otherwise, put a piece of tape over that Check Engine light and save a couple hundred dollars!

Hope this helps, I do trust my mechanic fully.

Hi there my mazda etude 160i wont start at normal operating temp must leave for few minutes then will start again


When you shut off a fully warmed up engine, the temp rises as all water circulation has stopped. This extra high temp can cause electronic parts to fail which then work again as they cool. Somewhat rare, but possible coil/module or crank/cam sensor issue. Also may have leaky injectors which bleed down when you stop and flood the engine. Sitting lets excess fuel evap and then will start again. Just my thoughts.

Someone please help!!!! I have a 2000 buick


A cam sensor only helps the computer when cranking and should not make it cut off. Most cam sensors do not go bad, but he magnet on the timing gear will deterorate. To fix that the timing cover will have to come off. Replace the crank sensor they get hot and stop working. When they cool down they will work again until it gets hot.

1997 Mazda dies when warm - runs smooth when cool


possibly a bad module------cracked---or???? In any case you may get expansion as engine compartment warms up----module shuts you down. Sometimes really hard to diagnose and just putting in a new module is "spendy"----especially if it turns out not to solve the problem!

Car wont start


I hope you did not run it without oil. Did it overheat ? Try replacing the crank shaft sensor. It is located in the cylinder part of the the engine near the timing cover. If it overheated the temperature control sensor could have gone out too. And the Idle Position sensor. Sorry I had to tell you this. But I hope you did not blow the rings and head gasket.

Mazda mpv engine idle problem


I had the same problem with my 2002 MPV. I ended up removing the IAC Idle are-control myself, and cleaning it really well (with some air intake cleaner). Put it back together, and it's been running great for the past year.

Not too difficult of a project, I'm no mechanic, but if your good with tools, it's not to bad.
