Question about 2001 Mazda Tribute

1 Answer

My 2001 Mazda Tribute runs very rough when until it warms up and the check engine light stays on. Mazda diagnostic test recommended replacing #1 ignition coil and plug ( check engine light cleared temporarily after test, then came back on a few days later when it got cold outside again. My machanic replaced all three coils and plugs on the back of the engine, but it still runs rough and check engine light is back on. Just read that it might be manifold gaskets. Do you agree?

SOURCE: sparkplugs

sadly the front are easy after ,you remove the coils however, the rear three are a real pain and a 1/2 days work to get to.  You have to remove the intake manifold.  Use the best plugs you can afford as you want to eliminate the need to go back there again too soon.  I waited until 70K to replace mine.

How to change spark plug on 02 mazda tribute


Is it a V6? For a V6 if you are standing in front of the car it will be the middle cylinder on the firewall side of the engine. You will have to remove the plastic engine cover and the intake manifold to get to it. If it were on the front side of the engine you would only have to remove the plastic cover. Since there is a good bit of work involved removing the manifold, I would suggest that you go ahead and replace all of the sparkplugs and consider replacing the coil for the one cylinder also. I have a 2001 Mazda Tribute. Mine started running rough so I decided to replace all the sparkplugs. After replacing the sparkplugs it continued to run rough. I took it to a shop and got it scanned (no cost for the scan). The scan showed the coil on the 3rd cylinder was bad. So I wound up having to pull the manifold off again to replace the coil :(
The first time it took me 1-1/2 hours to do the plugs, second time 1 hour to do the coil. Car runs great after coil replacement. Hope this helps.

2001 mazda tribute v6 runs rough cold ildes at about 200 rpm till it warms up then its ok what could it be


I replaced the upper & lower manifold runners seals, now it runs perfect, The reason it runs ok when warm is because the manifolds expand and seal the gaps on the surfaces that the worn old seals are not closing. Also change the spark plugs.

Sounds like it's going to die until it warms up...


Katrina, the fact that your car runs (like a beauty) when shes warmed up, indicates a fuel air mixture problem when cold. Your car is equipt with electronic fuel injection. This system utilizes a series of sensors that detect conditions such as engine temp, outside temp, humidity and air pressure to determine what mixture is perfect for the prevailing condition. For example, on a cold start, the sensors should know that the engine is not up to the proper operating temperature and provide more fuel and less air, (a richer mixture), until the engine warms, this emulates a choke on a vehicle equipt with a carburator. The problem either lies in the sensor itself, or the brain that interprets these inputs to decide what fuel/air mixture to deliver.

Do timing chains need replacing after 100000kms on a Mazda Tribute 2001. Dealership says they do!


If you are experiencing issues with timing (backfiring, dieseling, rough idling, power loss, etc...) your timing chain might indeed need adjustment or replacement. If your vehicle is working without issues it's highly unlikely.

2001 MAZDA TRIBUTE COLD STARTING PROBLEM


My wifes car had this same problem at about 100000 miles and after many trips to the shop it turned out to be carbor build up in the intake manifold. A fuel injector cleaner was hooked up and it helped the problem, but did not completely solve it. In oreder to get it totally clean the intake had to be removed and clean it out manually.
