Question about 2002 Mazda Tribute

1 Answer

2002 Mazda Tribute V6 difficult to start.

My 2002 Mazda Tribute V6 is intermittently difficult to start. When this happens, holding throttle allows the car to start, but it will stall immediately if throttle is released. Doesn't happen all the time, just occasionally.

IT SOUNDS LIKE THE IAC VALE OR IDLE AIR CONTROL VALVE IS BAD, WHAT YOU CAN DO IS TAP ON THE VALVE. IT IS LOCATED ON THE INTAKE RIGHT BEHIND THE THROTTLE BODY, JUST TAP ON THE SILVER PART WITH THE BACK OF A SCREW DRIVER A COUPLE OF TIMES. THIS SHOULD UNSTICK THE VALVE AND YOUR TRIBUTE SHOULD RUN. THEN IT IS JUST A MATTER OF REPLACING THE VALVE. YOU CAN GET THEM FROM ANY AUTO PARTS HOUSE.

2002 mazda tribute v6 stalls intermittently when you let off the gas pedal....seems to do it only when it is warm and again very intermittently. Vehicle has 110k for miles.


You need to have a scan done and pay close attention to the throttle position sensor and the idle air control .

Also (since we have so little information to work with) check your engine compartment while it is running and listen to see if you have a vacuum leak. See if you hear a hissing sound.

A vacuum leak will cause it to stall after it is warmed up. The computer will keep it running at a higher RPM until it warms up and with a vacuum leak it will stall when the idle comes down to the 600-700 level.

Hope this helps.

Mazda tribute 2002 stalling


1. will it stay running if you foot is sligtly on the gas.
if so common problem it the IAC valve located on top of the throttle body. it controls ait into the engine when throttle is closed.
2. do you hear loud fog horn like sound or hissing. this could indicate a vaccum leak.
3. are there any performance problems while driving.

my best guess would be the IAC (idle air control) valve
