#3430 of 4030 CEL, Airbag light, Trans
Jul 13, 2005 (1:38 pm)
I purchased my 2002 Millenia a year ago w/32k miles I thought it was a good vehicle(I now have 63k), I was wrong. The CEL comes on and off whenever it feels like it. Brought it in to the stealership and they canít duplicate problem. The airbag light likes to come on only when itís snowing, and most recently the car is just sluggish and the trans feel funny at take off. To add insult to injury the stealership where I purchased the vehicle (Sam Leman Mazda) has a terrible service department. Of course they were unable to duplicate any of the problems, all the while wanting to charge 70per diagnostic per problem. Well I have gotten rid of the Mazda and purchased a 2005 3.5 V6 Nissan Altima and Iím glad I did, I love it, simply put I will NEVER purchase a Mazda again.

#3432 of 4030 O2 Sensors......What issues???
Jul 14, 2005 (3:04 pm)
What are the typical indications that an O2 sensor may be going out? My 1999 Milli has excellent performance when it is cold, but once it warms up it is sluggish and feels that it surges a bit. Off of the line it actually has a hesitation at times once it is warmed up. But as I said, the first few minutes of driving in the morning are a blast as the car has an excellent amount of power. Has anyone else had a similar issue?
#3433 of 4030 My 97 Millenia won't turn off
Jul 16, 2005 (7:20 pm)
My 1997 Millenia 2.5, with 134K runs great. The problem is, when I turn off the key, the engine continues to run. This only happens if he engine is warmed up. If it's cold, it will turn back off. I changed the ignition relay and the ignition switch (electronic part). The way I turn the motor off is to pull out either the "engine" fuse or the "IIA" fuse. When the key is off and the motor is running, the "key in ignition" bell doesn't sound when the door is opened, the turn signals work, and the cruise control light turns on. The A/C, radio, and other key on accessories don't work. I had the after market alarmsystem removed, and that didn't solve the problem, so I had it reinstalled. Does anyone have an idea?
#3434 of 4030 performance upgrades
Jul 17, 2005 (4:35 am)
Does anyone know of performance upgrades( computor ect.) I have an 2001 s, and really enjoy it, thanks

I am no engineer, but in my experience I have seen cars "diesel" after being shut down hot. It is at least sometimes caused by severe carboning of the pistons and heads. I would have a mechanic take a look into the upper cylinders with the spark plugs removed.
Maybe someone else has a better suggestion. But the fact it shuts down cold suggests to me it isn't an electrical problem.
#3437 of 4030 '01 millenia S Acting like it's out of gas.
Jul 18, 2005 (3:32 pm)
I have a 2001 Millenia S and it stalled today. When I try and restart it, it acts like a fuel injected car that has ran out of gas. It cranks and idles low, then when I put it in gear to go, it either dies as soon as I depress the accelerator, or will idle along slowly with no power. However, I have a 1/4 tank of gas. Can anyone help?

I'm looking to buy '01 Millenia with 2.5L engine and 43k mi. A couple of questions:
1) Is $14k a good price?
2) Does 2.5L uses regular and Miller cycle 2.3L uses Premium fuel?
3) What kind of MPG you get for 2.5L and Miller cycle engine?
