Question about 2001 Mazda Tribute
Without asking for a clarification on exactly on how your mileage has deteriorated...
Seems like a fairly drastic decrease in mileage, so:
Give the vehicle a tune-up, or at the very least..go over all the usual components involved in a tune-up to see which are ok and which maybe not.
Air filter, sparkplugs, wires, etc..and everyone forgets to change their pvc valve. Do that.
Test the vehicles "free-roll ability".
Next time u are on a hill , shift the vehicle into N.
Does it feel like something is holding the vehicle back on the free roll?
Could be one of your brake components hasn't fully released, i.e: the parking brake may be in the full release position, but mechanically not fully released..or a caliper or hasn't fully pulled back.
A bad wheel bearing can cause issues that way if you drive alot..
Listen for anywheel noise with the radio/stereo off .
Check the tune-up end of things first....then, should the issue persist,
pull the wheels...
