Question about 1995 B-2300 Combination Switch

1 Answer

Vehicle just dies when driving down the road...

My Mazda B-2300 with the 4-cylinder motor will just die on me while driving down the road or a a stop light. If you wait 3-5 minutes, it will start up again...If you drive a few minutes, shut the engine off, then try to restart right again, engine will turn over, but will not start...I have had it in at a Mazda and Ford dealer, but both say they cannot tell, as the computer has no memory to diagnose the problem...Will replacing the cam and crank sensors and the ECM solve this problem? Fuel pressure seems fine, so I am really stymied...

This behavior is typical of a CAM or CRANK sensor, even happens on many Mercedes Benze Models.

BUT, thee are other things that can cause it, like a failing fuel pump, even though the pressure is good.

Do just the sensors, don't replace the ECM yet. Would likely be a waste of money. if the sensors don't fix it, it might be worth trying. If an ECM is going bad usually you can twist it and tap on it and get the car to die, but on a b2300 that is not an easy task.

Drive vehicle down the road for 20 minutes and come to a stoplight engine stops when you take foot off gas peddle and go to apply brake. To keep vehicle from dying you have to hold the gas peddle down


Have you changed the timing belt? or timing belt guides? How many miles? This does not necessarily have to do with fuel.... Could have to do with air intake or timing as well....

Re: 2005 Kia Rio Wagon. Driving down the highway, car just decided to stop working. Will not start again. Have replaced the starter with a brand new starter still not working. All you can hear is


Well, to begin with, the LAST thing I would replace if a vehicle died going down the highway is the starter. What caused the engine to die? It certainly was not the starter!
If the starter will not crank the engine over, you probably have a dead battery. If your battery went dead while driving the vehicle down the road, you most likely have a bad alternator. However, it is really hard to say without actually being able to see the car.

1996 chevy k1500 runs when idleing slight miss drives down the road fine but when comming to a stop it dies


When the light flashes it means a cylinder misfire, so you must check everything, spark, (first) injector fuel delivery intake manifold vacuum leaks and compression if not other problem accounts for the misfire.

While driving my 1993 929 down the road it just stopped running...had it checked out was told ti would be best to get a new motor and got a second opinion and was told to get a timing belt and fuel pump....


before going crazy , check the crank sensor out, a bad crank sensor will cause timing to be out of sync. more then likely engine will not start. or irregular rpm function if vehicle starts at all. it controls timing and sends info to pcm. if a crank sensor fails while driving the engine will die out. have scanned if check engine light is on. CPS symtoms are: car dies and won't re-start till it cools down, or won't start at all.
first of all, if crank sensor is ok, then you can check the timing belt.

When slowing down & stopping 2005 Mazda tribute sputters and dies


Sounds like it could possibly be a vaccume problem, the computer sees that the vaccume has a low pressure and thus fludding the engine, or visa versa, it's seeing too high of a pressure and cutting the fuel comsumption to a minumum enough to make the engine sputter and die.. Does this happen when the cars in Netural or Reverse or Park? Just Drive?
