Question about 2001 Mazda Tribute
My 2001 Mazda tribute runs fine when it's mild out but when the temperature drops below 0 degrees it turns over like a top but don't make an offer to start. It seems like it's not getting it's gas. I have replaced all the coils and also a valve sesor for the egr valve because I was told that if there was moisture in it, it would cause this kind of problem but I still have the problem. It is minus 4 out this mourning and the truck will not make an offer again I wonder could it have something to do with the fuel pump and if so why only when it's cold and not any other time?
BUY A TIN OF EGR CLEANING SPRAY USE THE WHOLE TIN FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS THEN SEE IF THIS SORTS THE PROBLEM. ITS THE CHEAPEST FIRST FIX.

That would be exactly what I would look for... When the catalytic honeycombs become blocked, it causes a build-up of exhaust pressure... and this restriction in the exhaust will also have a very definite effect on engine performance: The typical symptoms are an engine that initially seems to running okay, but slowly loses power.. in severe cases it will lose power to the point the engine stalls and will not restart until the pressure build up bleeds off.
Good luck with the problem --- it sounds like you are on the right track. And don't forget to rate my advice: your approval is my "paycheck"!

My wifes car had this same problem at about 100000 miles and after many trips to the shop it turned out to be carbor build up in the intake manifold. A fuel injector cleaner was hooked up and it helped the problem, but did not completely solve it. In oreder to get it totally clean the intake had to be removed and clean it out manually.

suprisingly it could be the TCC Solenoid on ur transmission. it could be locked in a gear and when u go to change the gear it stalls out. sooner or later the clutch in the auto transmission will let go and allow you to move. its a long shot. does this happen after a dead cold start or have u been running the car for a while?

if you have a cylinder 4 miss fire it is more likely to be the coil and not the injector. I have replaced a ton of coils on these for miss fires but don't think I've done an injector for this problem yet.

vacuum leaks on intake manifold,
the air tube between the air filter.
intake manifold vacuum hose.
clean throttle plate with Berryman carburator cleaner
SEE sample picture HERE
Also remove carbon built up behind the EGR valve and the EGR passage tube.
Vacuum leak WILL offset the intended 14.7 to 1 air fuel ratio.
More un-metered air (leaks) will lean out the fuel mixture.
Use small amount of Berryman carb clearer at potential air leak area will help you identify trouble spot.
At idle,just spray and listen for the RPM surge.
The in-rush of carb clearer will increase the RPM on the motor.
Record the problem spot(s) and address it later.
EGR carbon built up require 2+ hours to clean from start to finish.
You will need a new EGR base gasket before your start.
Locate and remove the EGR valve after the vehicle is cool down.
Carefully record the connector and vacuum line (for older vehicle) location by drawing an easily to follow diagram.
Remove the EGR valve.
Inspect the location of the carbon built-up inside the valve and the EGR passage tube.
SOAK these areas with WD-40 spary.
You will need a small screwdriver,cloth hanger and lot of newspaper and time to get this cleaning done right.
RE-SOAK the carbon and let it sit for over-night will also help.
One the last round,pass a shop vacuum of the EGR valve and the passage pipe.
Install the new EGR gasket and connectors.
Allow the vehicle to warm up outdoor to burn up any remaining WD-40.
Take it for a test drive.
