Question about Cars & Trucks

2 Answers

I have a 2000 Mazda MPV. It will not start properly. If it is even just a little cool out I have to sit with my foot in the gas for anywhere from 1 to 30 minutes depending on how cold it is outside. I have taken it in and gotten the Mass Airflow Sensor replacereplaced and it worked temporarily. Less than a year laterm in the cold it is acting up again and now takes longer to start. Any suggestions? It is costing $80 per diagnosis and I am $700 into fixing things without the problem being fixed.

I would start the IAC.
Idle air control valve.
Then take the rubber intake off and clean with a lint free rag sprayed with carb/choke cleaner, the intake and butterfly.
I'm taking you referring to having to hold your foot you mean it starts but dies unless you hold the throttle until it warms up?

SOURCE: 02 sedona hard time starting and mass airflow sensor issues

Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Hard starting could be caused by a number of faults such as weak battery corroded/loose battery terminals, fuel delivery issues and others which may include as you posted the MAF sensor. In my country however, most Kias have a peculiarity. They like to be well warmed up (even if it is hot here). Hard starting specially after short hops/trips is actually the ECU/ECM/Control Module or the car's computer getting mixed sensory inputs. The corrective action is to warm up the car fully before using. In some instances, it may also be required to reset the computer by removing the negative battery terminal for a few minutes. Pls bear in mind that some alarms are triggered this way and/or some car stereos would require a security code if the battery is removed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

i had a similar problem with my 626,what sorted it for me was to clean the crankcase breather tube on top of the rocker cover.The little valve inside this seems to stick but spraying some air intake cleaner (comes in an aerosol can) frees it out and allows the engine to breath better and so tick over evenly.

The air doors are controlled by actuators that on of them or so may need replacing.

Change the idle air control valve.That seems to be your problem.The only other thing it may be is your air temp switch located on the air intake.

I don't have a solution to the problem, but Mazda should. I have replaced 3 different ignition coils in the last 3 months. I am spending more on repairs than I was in a car payment. Mazda has been no help at all!

Car accelerates itself


If it is an auto then it is possible it is idling to high and the trans is still engaged despite you foot being off the peddle. Try lowering the idol speed as a first resort.

2000 MAZDA MPV TURNS OVER BUT WONT START. RAN FINE YESTERDAY. GOT IT TO START TODAY AFTER HOLDING GAS PEDAL DOWN BUT NOW ITS PUTTING OUT.


Sounds like you possibly got bad gas, or your at the bottom level of your gas tank and got the nasty stuff. Try running a good fuel treatment through the system and fill it up with premium gasoline from Marathon

if its been a while change the fuel filter and then have the fuel pressure and volume checked.these symptoms are very common for a fuel pump problem.

I have a mazda mpv 2000 minivan.problem code p0301 misfire detected cylinder#1


I'd check #1 spark plug.
Usually a misfire code "fix" is a spark plug, spark plug wire, or a coil pack / distributor.
Keeping it simple...I'd go with the spark plug first and then look at the condition of the wires.

Hope this helps...

Mazda 2000 mpv does not start


Couple of things it could be.

Try turning it over without touching the gas pedal. Sounds like you flooded it.

Check the coil and engine management sytem. Its probably that.
