Question about 2005 Mazda 6

1 Answer

Car died while driving and won't start

While driving my 2005 mazda 6 my car lost powe and died. Tried to restart but would not. Had it towed to repair shop who told me cam sensor was bad according to diagnostics test. They replaced it BUT still doesn't start. They now say it's the computer. Dealer item would cost more than $700.00 and used would be a little over $200.00; however dealer service dept. said the used one would not work without Dealer programing it for another $200.00+. First of all why would computer die at only 58,000 miles and second will the dealer really have to reprogram compter or just trying to make money.

    the 1st thing to do is have the system trouble codes checked, this will lead u in the right direction to the part that failed.

I would check your alternator if it just lost power while you were driving

Why does 2005 Kia Sorento die randomly


I was on vacation in S.C. and engine would die every 20 mins. or so, I took it too dealer and they could find nothing wrong except a bad plug wire periodically wouldn't fire. I said replace it and 3 years later problem is still fixed. Must have caused a glitch with computer.

Why does 2005 Kia Sorento die while driving


You need to run an engine control module scan for fault codes Known as an OBD2 fault code test.. Autozone and others do this for free. If no fault show then hook up a test fuel gage the next time it stalls and see if maybe the fuel pump is failing.

Brake failure urgent , abs light, low battery


So many lame responses...I went through this same experience and can tell you in my case it was the alternator. All of the warning lights such as the ABS light, airbag light, the warning about the brakes are all because the alternator is not providing the DC voltage all of the car's sophisticated electronics need to correctly monitor these subsystems' status. Mine left me high and dry by the side of Interstate 5 needing a tow. The low battery warning was off and on for about an hour before all of the other warning lights came on, and then about 5 minutes later every needle on the dash went to zero and the car died. After sitting waiting for the tow, it did start up again, but we got it towed to a dealer (thank god it got us within 8 miles of a dealer! the first warnings started when we were in the sticks) who diagnosed it as an alternator. $1200 and two days later and all is well again.

sounds like the head or head gasket is blown. your cylinders may be getting coolant in them which will not only cause the motor to lockup, but also cause bent rods and valves. check your oil dipstick and transmission dipstick to see if it looks like water or coolant is presant, also check the coolant to see if it smells like gas or has any kind of oil in it, if so, your head is likely blown.

1991 Mazda MX-6 starts and it dies within 30 seconds or less.


Check to see fi your fuel pump is functioning, also change the fuel filter. I had this same problem on a 1984 626. While i waited for the car to restart fuel would seep into the line to allow for the enging to startbe that was it.
