Try this, it's cheap, easy and it won't take long...and it will probably help...

I have a 2001 Tribute and ithas had this problem since about 1 year after buying it new. My motherin law also has one and it has the exact same problem. You can crankthe car2_bing.gifcold (sometime even warm) and it will die unless you keep the gas pedal pressed in. I suspect that this is a widespread problem with theTribute. Forget about the Mazda dealer helping. There is a very simpleand cheap solution:

1. Locate the idle air controlvalve...looking at your engine from the front of the car2_bing.gif, the valve islocated on top of the air intake towards the far right corner of theengine (next to the plastic cover on top of the engine). The valve ismetal, looks like a small metal cylinder is attached to it, and isbolted on with two bolts. It also has wires plugged into it. You can goto google images2_bing.gif and type "Mazda tribute idle air control valve" to see what it looks like.

2. With engine off, unplug the wires from the valve.

3. Remove the two bolts and take valve off of air intake.

4.Inside the metal part you removed, you will see two chambers with ashaft going through them that can extend back and forth. The shaft hasa spring on it, and a plug that can open or plug a hole between the twocavities. This is the idle control valve.

5. Take a flat headscrew driver and pry the shaft back and forth a few times to free itup. There will probably be some dirt/grime on the shaft.

6. Takecarburetor cleaner and spray it in the valve cavities. Allow it to soakfor a minute and drain it out. Repeat if needed to clean it out.

7. Blow in it to dry it out.

8. Take WD40 and spray it in the cavities. Drain excess out
.
9. Take the screwdriver and work the shaft back and forth a few more times. The shaft should move freely.

10. Bolt the valve back onto the engine air intake and plug the wires back up to it.

Startthe engine. If this was the problem, and the engine was stalling justbefore doing this procedure, then it should start right up and idlefine. If it was stalling sporadically when started, it should not anymore. I have to do this procedure with my car every 6 - 12 months. Whenthis problem first occurred with my car it took it to the dealerseveral times. Of course it would not do it at the dealer, and theyclaimed ignorance as to the cause. I suspect this is a cash cow forMazda.

SOURCE: wheres the spark plugs on

They are under the ignition coils on each side of the engine. The left bank (front of engine compartment)can be relaced by removing the plastic cover then removing the connectors and bolts from the 3 ignition coils. The right bank (rear of engine compartment requires removal of the upper intake plenum to acess the coils.

What's your question? my mazda tribute v6 petrol was serviced and the engine was washed. but since then I'm having a problem of back firing, and it can't even rave. what could be the problem?


Hello Prosper, It sounds like you have wet spark plug wires. You can let it sit overnight and see if that dries it out or you can spray some water displacing solvent like WD40 on it it help eliminate the water.

WHAT IS A PVC HOSE IN MAZDA MPV


The PCV is a valve and a hose, that sucks engine ring bypass gasses and reburns them. if it plugs up the engine leaks oil.

if the hose cracks it sucks air and the AFR goes lean and bucks.

jerks.

only on engines (unstated) that use a MAF sensor.

engine that use a MAP sensor ,race too fast with full power and no jerk with air leaks.

next time post engine type. as we can not guess this.

Mazda tribute v6 engine no


The engine number is recorded on the original factory invoice from Mazda to the dealer who received the Tribute from the factory. This is true in Canada for sure and I imagine it would be common for all Mazdas.

2002 Mazda Tribute V6 difficult to start.


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.
