Question about 2004 Mazda 3

1 Answer

My partner has a 2003 Mazda Astina auto. She is currently away and just found out that when she puts the auto gear shift into drive, it only goes in reverse. Currently jammed against the footpath in suburban Sydney. Any advice?

The only advice I can offer is that you get under the car and check for some kind of damage. Other than that I have no suggestions. This is an eyes on problem.

20005 mazda tribute wont go into reverse but when shifting to reverse it will go in drive mode


It sounds as though the shift cable might be going bad. I has the same issues on my 2003 Mazda Tribute and eventually it will break. It is a fairly simple fix if you have any mechanical skills. I believe the cable was around $175.00 bucks. The cable isn't what really goes bad it is the pin that is attached to the cable where it bolts to the transmission but it is a one piece unit. There have been people that repair the pin part only and there are a few youtube videos showing how to do that. If you find where the cable attaches on the shift lever on the transmission you can shift the gears by hand if you have someone in the vehicle putting the brakes on. you should be able to go through all the gears and this will let you know for sure the cable pin is going bad.

Cannot find spark plugs in 2003 323 1.8 litre mazda astina


If you follow the wires to the top of the engine from the distributor, they are under the boots when you remove them. Plugs are about 4-6" down inside. f2c5d262-e131-42d7-8496-0946d38b78c6.jpg

323 astina lack of power automatic


Hm, this happened in my Camry (yes, a different car, but...), and it was failure of the 1-2 shift solenoid in the tranny. This meant it could not find low gears, and felt sluggish, like yours. That component is almost universal in autos, so have it checked out.

My mazda astina 323 auto, wont get top gear now what could be the most likely cause please. t proba


Hi there:
From your description I would say the clutch is failing. If the engine speed increases when it's in gear and the vehicle doesn't that is also a tell tale sign it's the clutch.



Test it and check if some fault code is stored in the PCM and TCM.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I have a mazda astina familia 1.5 automatic. i have had the transmission checked by a technician and it is fine. i am getting power loss from engine.it seems the engine has to go into high revs before...


i think you need a new mechanic, i got that problem twice, each time the transmission had to be changed because the 1st gear was shot. i eventually changed to a 5fwd gear-box which increased performance like you would never imagine.
