Question about 2008 Mazda Tribute Hybrid

3 Answers

Warranty Voiding Hello Everyone. Ok this post is going to sound incredibly odd, but i'm a little worried and I am hoping someone can help me out. A long time ago I made a post about some problems I was having with my 2008 Mazda tribute, I also mentioned something in my post that people said could constitue as abuse to the vehicle. At the time, I did not realize that part of my user name was my last name. Is there anyway that someone could somehow track this back to me and void my warranty. Even though it appears that what I have done has not been the cause of any of my problems. Can Mazda void a warranty that way, or do they need a VIN or Linsence plate number to do something like that. I now I sound incredibly paranoid but I am just hoping that I really did not make a stupid mistake. Could they ever void a warranty without telling me or do I have to be notified. Anyone who has any knowleadgle of this please help me!

Hi

You have absolutely nothing to worry about from your previous post. It will never be traced or associated with your vehicle. Remember also that Mazda are in the business of retaining your custom for next time round so they are far more likely to show good will towards you even if there was a slight breach of warranty than employing serious detective work to catch you out.

So stop worrying there is no way they can trace provability of an issue like this from a general post on this site - neither would they even consider trying.

Rix.

I remember your post. At the time I told you that what you did was NOT an abuse of the vehicle and had nothing whatsoever to do with the problems you were having. Yet here you are again worried about voiding your warranty. If what you did was not an abuse then why would you be worrying about warranty issues. You need to let this go. STOP worrying about it. I do not know what else to tell you. You are worrying about nothing and you need to relax and let this go.

Dealers can not void your warranty without letting you knowing about it and have a valid reason. it takes alot of research to find one person to void warranty off a site like this. I won't worry to much.

Car overheating with vapor coming out from dash


watch temp gauge in dash and don't get it hot or you can ruin the engine. sounds like the heater core is still leaking. don't know your weather but usually you can bypass the heater core under the hood by unhooking the lines going into the dash from the engine and hook the two hoses together which will keep the car from overheating but you won't have inside heat. hoses go from engine to dash area and are a little smaller than a thumb

My subaru impreza 1994 wrx wagon drivers side window fault


Hello, the easiest way to find the relay is to look in your owners manual, but if you don't have one you can look in the under hood fuse/relay junction box which is under an oddly shaped black lid with 2 locking squeeze clips on it's sides. This box is on the drivers' side next to the shock tower, battery, and washer reservoir. Everyone knows that blinkers make a clicking sound... well, that's just a bigger version of what you'll be looking for. Relays make little clicking sounds and you can feel them as well if your touching one while it's being activated. It's still kind of hard to pinpoint which one is clicking so removing them one at a time is key. So, have someone in the car making the window in question operate again and again, while you are feeling which relay is clicking. If you pull out a relay and the window stops working even after cycling the ignition you'll know you found the one, then just pull another relay from another system, like foglamps(if equipped), or some other system thats not as important as a fuel pump, and stick it in the window relay spot to see if the window works full time now. If so, then just get another relay at any part store and your done. I hope this info helps...(subyguru)...

Voltage gauge pegs out at 19volts when running enegine when off gauge shows 14volts. with a volt meter shows 14 to 15 volts when engine is running.


Volt gauge in Instrument Panel Cluster sounds bad, just off a little bit. Would have to replace IPC, through dealer. That can be a little expensive, if reads ok at
alternator, would not worry about it. May want to have checked with a alternator tester at a dealer to be sure. hope this helps.

Display on auto radio is not working


unfortunately they are right,i worked at a mazda dealer-my advice would be to get an aftermarket cd player-save in cost
if you are worried about it voiding your warranty it wont-they only time an aftermarket part would void a warranty is if a problem came about that was caused by the aftermarket part(ex-cd player)then that repair would not be covered under warranty but your warranty would still be valid

Hello everyone, got a general knowleadge car question. When you have the car in gear in an automatic transmission, an you start turning the steering wheel while stationary you hear a sound almost sounds...


Hmmm...you could be describing the car straining against the brakes, unless you have it in park, in which case you could be describing the power steering pump complaining. And it could actually be the transmission's internal pump making a little noise as the power input to it decreases as the engine runs all the accessories INCLUDING the power steering pump.
In any case, I wouldn't worry about it unless you get other symptoms to go along with it.

I know it needs an inner tie rod...but does it have to be repaired at a gmc dealership?


If the car is under warranty then yeah, it probably will have to be. If it's not a warrantied part, but you are worried about voiding your warranty (even though that part is not covered), then any certified shop should be able to do the work with no risk to the rest of your warranty.

Someone sid i will have to "rock" the motor to get my plugs out. is this true what is this?


Plugs are very difficult to get to on all types of mini-vans. There are a few oddly shaped tools you can purchase that you might be able to do it without rocking the motor but it is a very difficult and time consuming process either way to get to the rear plugs on any mini van. Make sure the motor is completely cool before you try to reach around the motor or exhaust but if your are small in size and don't worry about getting a few cuts and scratches, it is possible to reach all 3 plugs in the rear of the motor. It is a little less painful but much more time consuming to loosen upper motor mounts and tip it forward but alot of disconnection needs to take place. Hope this helps!
