Question about 2001 Mazda Tribute

1 Answer

Cs Our 2001 tribute starts with no effort 75% of the time.Then it won't start but the engine does turn over. When cranking the engine the tack and the speedometer needles peg all the way over and then when it finally starts the needles go back down to "0" and readjust to the correct rpm. Some times it just won't start. We turn the key to off and then try to start again. Sometimes it takes 4 times before it starts. Tim

A. Disconnect the positive battery connector first, let it sit for atleast 5mins. then reconnect it again. Crank the car and observe how it goes.
b. If the problem still persist, try to have the battery checked. It may be faulty and there's a possibility that it's not holding charge which can make the starting hard.
c. If the battery is good then I suspect that the MAF(mass air flow) sensor is faulty. The MAF controls the vacuum supply on the car that when it's faulty the idle becomes erratic. May experience hard starting. May cause stalling when car is running.

I have a 2001 Chrysler 300m. I changed out the engine. New engine was running great before the swap but now the car turns over but won’t start! All plugins were check and rechecked and even installed a new...


Does the tack read a rpm when cranking?If not,possible no ignition pulse?Is there spark?Is there injector pulse?
Will it run if fuel is sprayed into a vaccuum line?
First, is it no spark or no fuel and go from there.

Why does not start?


I have never heard of an engine noise being described as a tick tack rattling noise. (I assume you mean Tick Tack candy/breathmints?) \

Either way, if it doesnt start, but just makes a rattling/knocking sound, I would ask you did it just quit on you and not restart? Or did it get you where you were going and then would not start when you were ready to leave? If the answer to the first question is yes, then you are likely facing a broken timing belt. The sound you hear are the valves coming into contact with the pistons when you are cranking the starter. This is a bad sound. Lets hope your answer was no to the first and yes to the second. Are you sure have gas? I cannot tell you how many times people have told me "It just won't start!" only to pour a gallon of gas in and varrroooom! What about oil? The tick tack sound just doesn't sound like a healthy engine sound in my head. Do you have oil in the engine? Does somebody hate you enough to drop nuts and bolts into your intake manifold? That would sound like tick tacks. BIG GIANT tick tacks, but tick tacks nonetheless.

sounds like a problem with the ignitionkey comuting with body control module verifying that it is the right key for the car. if you have another key and see if it does the same. reprogramming of keys may help. Prados have been known to have a similar prob.

are you sure you have the timing marks correctly lined up? If so, try holding the gas peddle to the floor while cranking the engine. This has helped me in the past with hondas.

You need to make sure that the engine has what an engine needs to run. The obvious ones are fuel and spark. Make sure there is at least 40LBS of fuel pressure at the injector rail when cranking. If so, you will need to make sure the injectors are opening. If you verify that the engine is getting fuel you need to make sure there is fire to the plugs when cranking. If it is getting fuel and spark, you need to make sure there is enough compression for the engine to run. And lastly, if it has everything else it needs to happen at the correct time.

I have a 2001 Mazda tribute it cranks but won't start.


You need 3 things for a car to start. Air, Fuel, Spark. Take some throttle body cleaner and spray it in the throttle body, If it starts you are not getting fuel. Use a spark tester and check if you have spark if not check crank position sensor, and coils. And obviously check your air filter box for anything keeping air from coming in.

I had a similar problem with my 2001 Tribute. I changed the spark plugs and the problem went away. I had about 160K miles on the original spark plugs.
