Question about 2005 Mazda 6

1 Answer

I have an 05 Mazda 6 i , I am having a problem with it not turning over. It sputters, but if I tap on the gas tank it will turn over. At first the engine light was not on but after a few times of driving it, it came on so I took it for a diagnostic test and it read p2187. After that the engine light went off but later that day it did it again. I was told it could be the fuel pump, then I was told it could be the air/fuel intake valve(or something like that) then I was told it could just be the fuel filter. Not sure what to do.

05 grd caravan fuel gauge showed quarter tank and


The float sending unit is messed up and don't know now much gas is in the tank. The float may be stuck in a higher position showing more gas, in reality the gas level is way below. Try using a rubber mallet and tap on the gas tank near the fuel pump. It may help free up the float.

05 Mazda 6 I need to replace the headlights


Behind the head lamp you'll see a circular cap with some fins on it. Turn it counter clockwise and then it should come out exposing the back of the bulb. Then you will need to push in and up on an angle to release the metal spring clip that holds the bulb in place. Then you can disconnect the harness to the back of the bulb and then remove the bulb. Do not touch the glass of the bulb when putting in the new one as that will cause the bulb to catastrophically fail

Mazda 6 warning light


On my 2003 Mazda 6S the problem was a loose gas cap which caused the check engine light to come on and stay on. To turn the light off you have to disconnect the battery for a couple of minutes.
