Question about 2002 Mazda Tribute

1 Answer

I have a 2004 Mazda Tribute

It sometime dies a couple seconds after starting up. It seems like it happens if I have been in a store for over 20 minutes but less than an hour when ever it happens. The radio an everything still works when it is happening. I usually try to turn of the radio and air conditioner etc, but still doesn't help. It has always started up if I wait an hour since last trying when this happens. Today I waited about a half an hour when it died. It died again when I started it. The next time I tried I floored the gas after it started and kept the RPM's and about 3 k for a bit and then it stayed running. Normally this doesn't work when it initially happens though. Any suggestions would help. Thanks.

I recently solved the very same problem on my tribute. I really needed a tune up, Plugs, fuel filter, pcv valve, cleaned throttle body, and mass air flow sensor.My problem went away, and engine runs great and idles perfect.. If you havent had a tune up recently maybe this will help you.

2004 mazda tribute idles high and manifold glows red hot after only 20 minutes after running


When you say manifold, I assume you mean the exhaust manifold. If its the one you can see (there is an exhaust manifold on the back of the engine also for the rear 3 cylinders) its a clogged or fried catalytic converter. There are a couple of catalytic converter cleaners on the market you can try, but most likely it will need to be replaced. Was there another problem recently i.e. bad coil pack etc?

My 2004 Mazda Tribute oil sending plug is leaking, how expensive is the plug and how hard is it to change


The plug / sensor should be under $20 if you purchase from a parts store (Napa, car quest, champion. ect...) if you go to the dealer, then it could be even $100.

It should be considered easy to change with standard hand tools. Go to the parts store and take a look at it first, some do not have a typical hex head on them and require a special too to install but i dont think that is your case.

Good Luck

2002 Mazda Tribute, Check Engine light came on and then it started blinking ... idling faster but does not seem to be other problems.


Stop in at autozone or similar parts store & get free code scan, then see which way to go from there. Cheaper & faster than guessing.
