Question about 2004 Mazda 6

1 Answer

Hi, our 2004 Mazda 6 Lux Sports has done 178,000kms. After a few hours of driving on country roads it pulls back. It loses power and I can't gain speed no matter what I try. Every time I put my foot down it splutters and slows down. I then pull over to the side of the road and the motor stops. If I wait a few minutes the car starts again and I can get up to near normal speed for about 8kms and then it does it again. After some time the yellow engine light comes on, but it goes out again (as soon as you take it to a repairer). I've had it diagnosed but they said it was "miscellaneous" which didn't tell us a thing. Any clues please? Brent

    Thanks. I guess I have to wait until it does it again (unfortunately).

The problem is in one of the car's sensors. You have to get and electrics car mechanic to connect to the computer of the car when it's doing this and see what error codes will return. This way you will find out which sensor(s) is/are playing up.

My 2004 mazda mpv jerks to the left then straightens back out. This usually happens when I have to accelerate really fast or right about the time it shifts into the last gear.


Mike, this may be because the left wheel is the dominate drive axle (left axle locks up and pulls hard, while right side slips) when under power. Vehicles that do not have possie drive differentials have this pulling characteristic.

Hello, sounds like you may have a engine miss, things like spark plugs, plug wires, fuel injectors can cause a engine miss. you will need to have the system scanned for trouble codes. once a trouble code has been pulled form the system you will have a much better idea what the problem might be

Adjusting Headlights


Plain floor and a wall at dusk/night and start adjusting.
remember inner road side lower so no to blind upcoming traffic.
So there should be a difference officialy between right and left.
Switch around fror country on which side off the road you drive and specific legal requirements. Normally adjusting this is no big fee either.
