My 2001 Tribute has a very rough idle on cold start, and sometimes won't idle w/o manually using the accelerator.


Replace the gaskets on the intake manifold. My tribute was doing the same thing. Replace all spark plugs at the same time since the manifold is already off. They found small amounts of oil in my first 2 valves and plugs, but other 4 were dry. My car idles great and runs great now and it was a cold morning today!!! Also go ahead and replace the idle control valve if you like. I had to replace this first in the car with idle problems. Charge for replacing gaskets and plugs and cleaning it up in the cylinders.... $250.00 and it was well worth it! I have a side mechanic and do not go to dealers or other shops in town.

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.

Don't waste your time. Have the intake manifold gaskets (upper and lower) replaced. Check all vacuum lines for leaks. Clamp all vacuum hose connections.
Do NOT replace any sensors unless the computer codes indicate.
THIS WILL FIX YOUR PROBLEM!

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.

Problems with cold engine


It is the head gasket. Have that replaced and you will be fine. You have an air leak. I was told by the mechanic at mazda that the anti freeze eats away at the gaskets. CRAZY, but it works. I still have an issue with my 2001 Tribute revving while in park. Its always something.
