Question about 2003 Mazda Mazda6

2 Answers

I bought a 2003 mazda6 3.0 liter v6 with 69000 miles combo auto/man trans. about every 2 weeks or so I'm driving down the road and the trans seems to go into neutral on it's own. the engine revs up with the accelarator but I dont go anywhere. I turn the car off,wait a few minutes turn the car back on and then I'm able to drive off. my mechanic said it was the throttle body so they replaced it. it was good for another couple weeks and now it's happened again. Any ideas?

    I didnt notice the indicator. the only thing i noticed was that the 'AT' indicator on the dash lit up.

    My trans is in 'Drive' but sometimes it acts like it's in neutral. my mechanic's diagnostics say the trans checks out fine but the throttle body is giving an error message. they changed out the throttle body but the problem is still happening. please dont just tell me to 'check the trans'

You may need to change the shift sensor. It may be defective. Have a tranny shop check it out if your not able to locate it. Good luck!

Hi. I guess replacing the throttle body is not the soultion for this problem. Try to check the transmission itself. there might be problem with the gears since you mentioned that car go to neutral on its own. Is there an indicator to your dash that will tell you that you are in neutral position?

My 2004 deville shifts a little rough at different speeds.It seems to do it when the car is warm to hot.It does not leak.Would a transmission flush help the problem?It has 76000 miles.we bought it with...


You Change Trans & Power Steering Fluids every
30,000 miles on ALL Vehicles

I don't suggest flushing,some people do

If you want to chance having problems get
it flushed

You remove all the fluid it may just start to slip

You have to understand that fluid changes DO NOT FIX
A THING

The fluid removes heat & breaks down
That is why it is changed

I would assume you don't flush brake fluid every 2 years
Trans & Steering every 3 years,not over 30,000 miles
Spark Plugs at 60,000 miles

When you buy a used vehicle you lay it up for two weeks
& work on it,never drive it
All Preventative maintenance gets done,regardless
of what you were told about the vehicle

1998 Yukon high idle sound with bad gas mileage.


What you have is the torque converter clutch,cycling on and off.
When it is off.your rpm will go up and your milage will go down
First-check to see if your brake switch, on the back of the brake peddle, is loose or misadjusted. When you apply the brakes,the first thing to happen, is that you unlock the converter,so your trans is not connected directly to the motor,or you would stall. Then below 42 MPH,your trans is working off the converter, as a pressure multiplier ,based on rpm
Second- switch okey. You remove trans pan and change TCC Solenoid.

Let me know if if you need more guidance

Transmission not shifting properly, 2003 automatic, 3.8 liter v-6, fluid and filter new and clean. Sometimes if I rev the engine it will catch and drive fine, but it doesn't take off properly, it hesitates...


hate to be the one to say this but possible trans slip how many miles before you changed the fluid most autos with automatic trans require a trans service every 24,000 miles and it is critical in most new cars today sorry......

2003 Tahoe.. Fine at idle.. overheats when driving a mile down the road.. Replaced thermostat and checked for any leaks from hoses water pump etc but still cant figure out why it overheats.. Does take red...


these are something to look at not enough cooling in the system or there is a air bubble in the system if the SUV has over 40,000 miles on it replace the drive belt,or the radiator core is block or one of the heater hoses are plug, or the ingnition timing is off give these websites a try www.alldatadiy.com and www.autozone.com if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your SUV wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.
