TRIBUTE TURNS OFF

MY 2003 MAZDA TRIBUTE JUST STARTED TURNING OFF, RIGHT AFTER STARTING IT AND PUTTING IN GEAR. I HAVE TO PUMP ON THE GAS TO KEEP IT ON UNTIL IT STAYS ON NORMALLY, THEN IT RUNS O.K.. UNTIL I STOP AND TRY TO START IT AGAIN. ITS STARTING TO DO IT MORE REGULARLY. I REPLACED THE FUEL FILTER AND NO CHANGE.WHATS UP? IT SOUNDS LIKE IT FLOODING OUT OR SOMETHING.

    I did a tune up on my tribute. Plugs, changed oil, fuel filter, pcv valve,the pcv valve where it connected to the rubber hose was real loose so I put a small clamp on it to keep it tight.I also cleaned throttle body and mass air flow sensor. put it back together and it works great. Idles smoothly, no more stalling, engine feels stronger. Maybe since it had been 124,000 since the last tune up, this had alot to do with the problem, it worked out.It just needed a tune up. I also had a problem with a chiming sound that would come on at different times during start up and during regular driving. it would always be coming on and stopping for about the last 9 months. the tune up seemed to have also solved this problem. Hope this helps someone.

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?

I have a 2001 Mazda Tribute, it tries to start but will not. How do I go about diagnostics on it?


With key on, check that all warning lights and the check engine light are illuminated. Also that the fuel pump turns on for 2 seconds. You should hear a buzz or hum from the gas tank for that 2 seconds with key turned to on. If the pump is working, that means gas should be to the engine. It may be necessary to check the fuel pressure. Some parts stores loan or rent fuel pressure gauges. If fuel pressure is correct, or if you are sure the pump is putting gas up to the injector's fuel rail, then check for spark on a spark plug wire while a helper cranks the engine over.

Gas and spark, that is what you test for first. You will also need to check for trouble codes with a scan tool. Parts stores will do a scan for free. But if it won't start, that may be a problem getting to a store. So it is gas and spark. If you have both, next would be to check the injector circuit. Answer back if you need help with the circuit. All you need is a voltmeter or a test light.

In my opinion it is caused by having too little gas in the tank. You are not suppose to run it it with that little gas anyways because it is bad for your car since all the contaminants can be sucked into the injectors and cause all kinds of problem.
