My Madza Tribute looses power,shut's down and won't start, the mechanic said it has a diagnostic code 320 but has no idea what it means. He has called other mechanics including the dealer and they too don't have an answer. Could you please help. Thank You

If it is a PO320 --Ignition Engine Speed Input Circuit Malfunction
I do not have MFG Specific Codes, but scanner software should,so I don't know what the Auto Repair Industry has come to. They surely are not up to current technolgy or investing in basic and necessary test equipment.

I am not familiar with your vehicle,but it appears to be an issue with (PIP) profile ignition pickup.

Hopefully you got the correct code, and I'm not completely of base ,in an effort to help

Squealing noise from front end when turining the steering wheel eaither way

Well after speaking to my dad about it, (He knows a lot more than me) and he suggested that it might be the power steering belt. It could be either loose, or worn down. Either that, or it could be the power steering unit wearing down. You probably want to take it to a mechanic and get it fixed. (This is just going of the opinion of some older cars, but we're not positive.) Hope it helped anyways.

Battery light on in a madza 6

Mrs Billie Jo I follow your problem and honestly is a quiz .Anyway I put down my idea and believe is good to share it with your mechanic,Please check on your gear box whether your speed sensor is an electronic one. if so it is a possibility on a fault the car will get into a SAFE MODE Position . This is what happened to your car now.Give it a try and let me know,I am interested to know.

MY 2002 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN, 3.3 started out by stalling. we took it for diagnostic, mechanic said catalytic convertor bad. changed that and coil. changed map sensor, both O2 sensors. took it to another...

does the van stall going down the road or at idle? the won't change gears at 4000 rpm and the no start condition unless disconnect the negative cable sounds more like a computer problem. when the cable is diconnected the ECM and the TCM have to go thru a relearn process which can be some of your issues. have your mechanic do a quick learn on the trans module to see if it helps the shifting problem. the ECM on the other hand can throw out codes that can make you chase your tail and end up replacing every sensor and still have the smae problem. you may want to check for corrosion at the ECM connections.

My car recently lost power. the engine will start and the car will go, but it will not go any faster then 10mph and it can not go up hills without loosing power. also the check engine light came one once...

how many miles? a high miler will lose compression in cylinder and cause this problem.Anytime the check engine light comes on go to autozone parts store and get it read for free they will thell you what codes mean and let you know whats wrong.

I think the warning light is meant to be in the shape of a radiator - check your coolant level - it generally means your coolant is low. The coolant level sensor often fails on Mazda's however, so your 'problem' might actually be a dodgy sensor not a lack of coolant at all.
Hope this helps, Sherwin
