THE COOLANT FAN OR THE ONE THAT IS PROBABLY NOT WORKING IS THE CONDENSER FAN. THIS FAN PULLS AIR ACROSS THE CONDENSER TO COOL THE HOT FREON GAS SO IT CAN BE CONVERTED BACK INTO A LIQUID, THE PROBLEM IS IF THE FAN IS NOT WORKING THEN IT WILL NOT COOL DOWN AND THE INTERNAL PRESSURE WILL BE TO HIGH AND THAT IS WHY THE A/C WILL NOT WORK AT IDLE. WHEN YOU ARE DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD YOU ARE PUTTING AIR ACROSS THE CONDENSER BUT WHEN YOU STOP THE AIR STOPS. TO KEEP FROM DAMAGING YOUR A/C SYSTEM YOU WILL WANT TO GET IT FIXED AS SOON AS YOU CAN. CHECK AROUND TO SEE WHO HAS THE BEST PRICE.

2004 mazda mpv engine racing and cooling fan not working


coolant temp sensor tells the computer how hot or cold the engine is so it can regulate the idle and fuel mixture, when it fails there usually is no cooling fan and you will have trouble starting the engine and keeping it running.

Overheating


I am not an expert on Mazda vehicles but sounds like your fan temperature sensor is not working properly. My fan comes on low speed when the temp hits 205 and goes to high speed at 220 or when the air conditioning is on. You had better get it checked by your dealer or service tech.

Mazda mpv engine idle problem


I had the same problem with my 2002 MPV. I ended up removing the IAC Idle are-control myself, and cleaning it really well (with some air intake cleaner). Put it back together, and it's been running great for the past year.

Not too difficult of a project, I'm no mechanic, but if your good with tools, it's not to bad.
