99 Mazda Premacy automatic difficult to start and idles very rough (max 500/600rpm). Also brake pedal goes "hard" when at low revs (like braking unboosted) but returns to normal whilst driving or under...


industry standards for compression is no more than 10% between cylinders which makes the 90 lb/sq" should be 117 at worst.. If the head job was done properly then a replacement engine is indicated as there is a ring problem in the low cylinder. Rough idle is an indication of a vacuum leak and if the brake booster is not assisting I would be looking at a leaking hose connection between the manifold and the booster Idle rpm is around 900 for a mazda. Check for faulty pc valve allowing excessive air from the sump and not shutting off correctly.

2004 freelander hse erratic idle in park, fine in drive


Do you know what engine scan data is ? Disconnecting sensors is not the way to find a problem ! What is the computer seeing as data input signals . Is the vehicle in closed loop fuel control , is the EGR opening when it shouldn't be , Is the PCM controlling the idle air control valve or is the vehicle drive by wire (electronic throttle control ?

Most likely your throttle position sensor is faulty. You could have a vacuum leak as well. Most probable cause is a bad sensor. Is your check engine light on? Have you checked your engine codes? You can go to autozone.com and register for full free online repair manual.

your probably feeling a rough idle of the engine. need a tune up?

in park the engine is not loaded down, just idling at a low rpm=rough
in drive with brake on you have put some load on motor also at low rpm=rough
in drive on the road engine is at higher rpm, = smoother

generally 4 cylinder motors idle a bit rough, especially if one spark plug is not firing right or fouled or one bad spark plug wire. tune up may fix it. if it is not stumbling real bad or stalling then you can live with it.
