You have a miss fire. pull the spark plug wires off the plugs one at a time until one dosnt make a differance. This plug is not firing right and not burning the gas. If you get spark on the plug wire(it might shock you a little if your not carefull just hold it with one hand and dont touch the car with your other) then all you need to do is repalce the plug it self. if the wire is not sparking (if you dont hear sap sap when u pull it off) then you will need wires and maybe cap/rotor.

Look at the gas tank filler cap. Make sure the seal in the cap is good. If it is cracked it may be leaking air into the system. Simply replacing the cap usually fixes this problem

Check intake tube for split & check for vacume leak. you can do this by spraying aerostart around vac lines & intake tube / manifold when car idleing. If leak detected the RPM will increase. does it **** up hills?

2000 mazda protege water leak under passenger side. A/C not used. Can't see any water in engine compartment or on firewall. Floor carpet is dry. Just drips from big bolts on frame under pass. side.


Possible the hot water line to the heater that has leaked from the water jacket or the connection at the heater pipe. You must be able to use a good observation lamp to look into this section so that the joint from where the leaks appears is located. Possible that the gland or the connector can be tightened to stop the leak.

Manifold Absolute Pressure/Baro Sensor Range Out of Limits.

You have a bad MAP sensor or a vaccume leak going to the sensor. If you can't find a valid leak to the vaccume lines at the MAP sensor you have a bad MAP Sensor. Check the Vaccume lines FIRST.

Car suddenly started running poorly, Difficult to start, and bogs badly when gas pedal is pushed. Gradual acceleration up to 2500 to 3000 rpm allows it to go but it does not get better when warmed up. Some...


popping out of the tail pipe is usually a tell tail sign of a timing issue. Pull the timing cover and hand crank the engine. If the marks on the crank and cam line up check vacuum. If needle fluctuates roughly 2in/hg take note(possible burned valves) Inspect the plugs for signs of carbon fouling(fuel injector issue). if the plugs show good burning with a yellowish white check compression. If compression is good check cylinder leak down. if cylinder leak down is less than 30%. check exhaust back pressure.

Low pressure exhaust sensor faulty on passat 57


If you have low pressure in the exhaust manifold, then there would an exhuast leak somewhere from the exhaust manifold to the tail pipe. These leaks tend to get bigger over driving time. It may be the exhaust manifold gasket, or a crack in the manifold. Give a good listen for a sputtering sound. Part of the exhaust pipes have to be removed for access to the manifold. A good spray of PB breaker will help a lot with the bolts here.
Escaping gas is bad for the environment. This also causes gas to enter the manifold and make its way to the valves. The temperature of the incoming air is very cold compared to the combustion chamber and can cause damage the your valves by stressing them.
If you find no leak, then you may consider the sensor may be faulty or the leak is very small.
Good Luck.
