You might find the outboard PCM cover ***** are shorting out the circuit board...In the engine compartment on the passenger side of the firewall, aft of the coolant reservoir. You will have to remove the reservoir. The PCM is a square metal box mounted vertically to the firewall with three bolts. On the front, you will find three large rectangular connectors, one black, one white, one gray. Beneath the two outer connectors, you will find the two screws. You do not need to remove the connectors. The screws use a #25 Torx bit for removal. Back the screws out about 1/4" and see if that makes a difference..If so install two new 1/4 or 3/8 #6 sheet metal screws and you should be good to go.

If your fuel system is ok(which it sounds like you've checked) go to the distributer cap and rotor,these often get hairline cracks which are not apparent by looking at them, but are cheap to replace. Also while in there make sure everything else looks clean and situated correctly. Then change your spark plugs and if they are not newer,better ones, your spark plug wires too, this often has a profound effect on starting and running smooth all by itself. Use good quality parts (No Champion plugs for example,have run into to many that fail new or shortly afterwards) and change your air filter while your under the hood. You can also use seafoam (slowly added to hose for intake while manually raising the rpms,and the other half of the bottle added to fuel tank) to clean the intake system.If you do this,do it BEFORE you change the plugs as it often fouls them,and is perfect to do before you change them out, Drive a few miles after using the seafoam as well,then change out the plugs and wires etc..

Check the fuel pressure, make sure it doesn't bleed down after the car sits, that causing long crank times/hard starting.

Ran it out of gas, now runs fine cold, as soon as its warm starts hard, and stalls when put in drive


Is the \'Service Engine Soon\' light on? Only from what you described, it sounds like the engine\'s running in \'open loop\' (fast idle, cold) okay, then when it\'s supposed to go into \'closed loop\', you have a malfunction. Checking the trouble codes will pinpoint the problem; your truck is pre-\'95 so it\'s the older OBD-I and you could get the trouble codes by grounding the proper terminal in the ALDL, counting the blinks of the SES light and using it to determine what electronic control device is malfunctioning. If no SES light/trouble codes and since you ran out of gas (?), it might be time to replace the fuel filter and possibly check the fuel pressure and/or fuel pump.

sound like fuel issue, replace fuel filter, check fuel pressure should be 15 psi if fuel pressure okay the automatic speed control not working more likely.the ignition timing could be off also.if you see check engine code scan for fault codes.faulty egr valve cause engine to stall out.

My Mazda 6 car stalls when I stop, also crakig, I replaced throttle body and fuel pump


When you stop if the Mazda stalls try putting the car into neutral gear and see if it still stalls. if the Mazda does not stall in neutral then the torque converter has failed and needs replacing.

Car will run and then some time later stalls, then starts rught up and then a little bit later stalls, did this 5 times today and finally wouldn't start when the engine got hot (actually just hotter) seems...


You have a lot to check. Start by scanning the engine codes. There's good chance it will tell you where to look next.
The symptoms sound like fuel delivery (assuming the engine runs well when it runs). Put a fuel pressure gage on the car and verify that you are getting a constant and good pressure. Could be fuel pump, blocked lines, bad fuel regulator, or an intermittent electrical problem. I had a situation like this where the car would run fine and then just cutout or not start. Turned out to be a loose connection to the fuel pump. Easy fix. Very hard to find.
