I have a question, I have a 2001 Mazda Millenia, and just today as I was driving I noticed that the brake petal went all the way down... And the next thing I knew I couldn't stop!! So.. I let go of the break... tried it again and it worked. Decided to drive it a little bit more.. then.. my emergency break light came on.. I freaked!!! Pulled over and read the manual, it said... "You may notice that the pedal is harder to push or that it may go closer to the floor. It says to check the brake fluid... it should be at Max... after adding fluid check the light" Ok so I check... it was at Min, I added break fluid.. and decided to drive around a little bit more... And I still notice that the petal is going closer to the ground... I am calling my mechanic tomorrow.. but I just figured I would post this.. and see if this has happened to anyone else... Please let me know!! I am a little frantic!! Thanks!!!

#3345 of 4030 mazda mill timing belt specs
Apr 28, 2005 (7:16 pm)
I have a 98 mazda millenia (base). I am letting a mechanic friend of mine change the timing belt for me but he doesn't have the timing specs. Mazda will not tell him or give him anything and non mazda dealers and mechanics are no help. Mazda said he could order a manual from them that will take 8-10 days to get to us. I am hoping not to wait that long. Can ANYONE help with this problem please?

Go to autozone.com and click on "Vehicle Repair Guide" then follow through until you get the Tune-Up Specifications for your car.
I did, and for the '98 2.5 they give a setting of 10b (the b equaling btdc). It also gives you the plug setting etc.
#3347 of 4030 Check Light
Apr 29, 2005 (11:19 am)
I have a 95 millenia s--a real love hate relationship for the past 8 years. Been through a lot of the stuff that has been discussed on this forum. Still find it an awesome car. I have nearly 95,000 miles on it. I would like to buy a OBD device for the car to read the codes. It seems this car is on the cusp of the OBD I and OBD II readers. Any idea where I can get a reader that works with this car. Presently, my light is on--the car doesn't want to idle very well nor accelerate without hesitation--it sometime stalls out. I thought it was a load of bad gas but gas treatment and new fuel hasn't cured the problem. Any suggestions?
#3348 of 4030 Clean EGR passage
Apr 29, 2005 (1:30 pm)
I have a 1999 2.5 L Millenia and had the "check engine" light come on at 43500 miles. My mechanic (whom I trust) cleaned the EGR passages and all is well. There is a lot of labor involved just getting to the cleaning job and the bill was $334.00. Anybody else have this EGR problem? Great car by the way. This is the first problem with the car.

Freak, I'm going exactly the same direction. Turns out that the Mazda radios were, are, Panasonic. The BOSE option was speakers and outboard amps, over promoted and overrated. Garbage.
My Alpine deck gets installed Monday and speakers and the rest of the project are just ahead.

I bought that model from an ebay seller. Sounds like your car has some issues. Check the code, turn the light off and see what happens. If it lights again immediately, or if the drivability issues remain, then it's off to the mechanic.
#3351 of 4030 99 Millenia acceleration "lag"
Apr 30, 2005 (12:45 am)
One shop suggests acceleration lag is due to supercharger needing replacement ($5000). Another shop feels spercharger is fine, it's a slow response from the auto transmission. Car is strong and quick when already under even a slight load. Huge dead response however when coasting down the road and trying to accelerate. Actually dangerous lag. Suggestions or thoughts? Vaccuum problem somewhere?

Apr 30, 2005 (10:11 am)
The supercharger failures are always oil leaks. Some seals fail, oil leaks into it, gets sucked into the engine and burns out the tailpipe. Clue is noticable oil smoke on startup.
If this is not happening, then I was guess not supercharger. Could be a vacuum leak - common- or a transmission problem. Find a good mechanic and get it figured out.
