You still got a vacume leak, best chk. all your vacume hoses paying close attention to the one that goes to your break booster, it also could be an intake gasget, You can chk. that by spraying a little WD-40 around the intake and vacume lines while its running if it reves up than thats where your leak is, not a whole lot you don't want to start a fire.

Engines shuts down when idling Car starts if accelerating but shutsoff when gas pedal is released.

You have an air flow problem. It could be a dirty air filter, or a vacuum leak (hissing noise) or a clogged catalytic converter. All three of these will cause a shut down at idle and poor fuel economy.

My mazda 6, 2006 is makin a hissing noise. while in park or stopped at a red light my car idles low and sounds like it could die.? when i start my mazda it pulses( low idel? ) kinda like, cutting out. if...

Find put where the hissing noise is coming from, you have a vacuum leak. Fix that , and everything else will be fixed. After you fix it, disconnect the battery for 5 minutes to reset the computer and fuel trims.

Starts and idles fine but has loss of power during driving and I hear a hissing sound I never heard before

A hissing sound is usually a vacuum leak in the intake system. Look for loose hoses (with the engine running) and the source of the hiss. If you find a nipple hissing, it may have lost a cap (it may be a vacuum test port) that prevents air entry.
An aside note: be sure to change the timing belt at the proper time. If it breaks while running, the engine with suffer severe valve and piston damage (many penny!)

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.

I try to give my mazda throttle and it cuts out then stalls

Sounds like an air leak on the intake to the engine, listen for a hissing sound while the engine is idling, probably the manifold gasket. Good luck

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

Wont start

when you turn the key to the ON position you should hear your electric fuel pump come on (a quiet hissing noise) if you dont hear this noise your fuel pump has gone out, if you do hear the noise you might want to check your fuel filter it could be clogged and starving the engine of fuel
