SOURCE: Where is the ignition coil pack located on 2002

The ignition power pack and (aka ignition coil) is located on the 2004 Mazda MPV at the end of each spark plug wire on top of the spark plug. The front ones are easy to replace and all 3 can be done in about 30 min. The back ones are another issue. I had to take off the intake manifold on the top of the engine to get to them. This was about a 5 hour job. The installation of the new unit is pretty simple once you gain access to them. you simply disconnect a clip on wire and take out one screw and reverse the process to put in the new ones. Factory units run about $80 each. You can get them at other locations in after markets for as low as $55. Good Luck.

SOURCE: 2002 Mazda Tribute rear liftgate lock replacement

I'm not sure where' the screws are but basically You need to remove the panel on the rear door, then once the panel (interior trim) has been removed you should see a lock mechanism which will be screwed/bolted in place. Easier and cheaper then buying a brand new lock mechanism (unless you want to buy brand new) is going to a wreckers and finding your car model and get it that way (yes it's used but it'll probably save you tons of money vs the dealership) Best Regards.

Check your EGR valve, check your PCV valve, check your mass airflow sensor and throttle body sensor.

SOURCE: i have replaced all 6 coils and plugs and the

start by disconnecting power to each cylinder, one at a time until you find the cylinder that does not affect the idle speed. This will be the dead cylinder. If you have spark to this cylinder, impulse to the fuel injector plug and compression is good then replace the fuel injector for the dead cylinder. Normally your check engine light will be on if you have a misfire. by reading the codes you will know which cylinder is at fault.

Is number 1 plug at the back and where is the coil

The number one cylinder is always in the front of the engine.
The 4 cyl engine uses one coil for all 4 cylinders.
The 6 cyl engine uses one coil on each plug.

Hi Paul, Have you had a fault code relating to the knock sensor? That sensor controls ignition timing which can have a relationship to the fault codes you report? Regards John

How to change spark plug on 02 mazda tribute

Is it a V6? For a V6 if you are standing in front of the car it will be the middle cylinder on the firewall side of the engine. You will have to remove the plastic engine cover and the intake manifold to get to it. If it were on the front side of the engine you would only have to remove the plastic cover. Since there is a good bit of work involved removing the manifold, I would suggest that you go ahead and replace all of the sparkplugs and consider replacing the coil for the one cylinder also. I have a 2001 Mazda Tribute. Mine started running rough so I decided to replace all the sparkplugs. After replacing the sparkplugs it continued to run rough. I took it to a shop and got it scanned (no cost for the scan). The scan showed the coil on the 3rd cylinder was bad. So I wound up having to pull the manifold off again to replace the coil :(
The first time it took me 1-1/2 hours to do the plugs, second time 1 hour to do the coil. Car runs great after coil replacement. Hope this helps.

I have a 2001 Mazda Tribute V-6 and I cannot keep it running at idle. I have replaced the EGR Valve and a fuel filter. It seems to be idling too slow. Any suggestions?

Go to my profile and see my tips for help with this. All you need to do is pull the idle control valve, clean it and lube it. It takes about 5-10 minutes, and your car will start and run great!

2003 mazda tribute engine light diagnoise said its ''coil A'' but the coils are listed 1-6, I think its number one but how can i tell for sure. Mazda dealer won't tell me because they would rather get paid...

i looked on alldat and there is nothing there on lettered coils just numbered! sorry but if i had that issue come into the shop and the custom said what you said i would assume that it was number 1 also and say if i didn't have a scanner and had to figure it out (blind) i would start at the number 1 coil and pull it out of the hole while it was running and while i was wearing thick rubber gloves and see if it made a diffence to the motor idling right. if not then that is the one but if it effected it then i would go to the next coil and do the same thing and so on. till i found the one that didn't cause the motor to mis fire or idle different or more. and change that one! hopefully that helps. best i can do over the computer at night with out the factory software in front of me.
