#3840 of 4030 dealership cant help solve problem with Millenia S
Aug 23, 2007 (8:26 pm)
I posted a message a few days ago. I want to ALERT anyone with a Millenia S. I was having problems with my TCS OFF light, TCS & check engine light coming on occasionally.I took my car to the dealership a 2000 S series and they could not get a code reading and they drove the car for over 30 miles after being reset and the light never came back on. The service advisor told me they have seen this problem before but because of the type of engine in these cars they cannot pinpoint what the problem is because the computet does not send a reading. He also told me that it is very expensive to repair these cars. He said that they could start with the vaccuum valve and go forward to the ABV and so forth. My car had a 119--- miles and I loved my car but after he expressed the fact that he has seen this happen before and the person spent in the thousands getting their car fixed I decided to trade it in. Don't get me wrong before then I had no major problems but I couldn't spend that much repairing a car that could very well act up again. So say this the Millenia S is a good car but Mazda should have thoroughly did their homework when creating this type of engine for this car. BEWARE OTHER OWNERS!!!!!!

intermitant dying for no apparent reason. see post #3717 by 97millenia06 dated Sept 21 2006. that is where some discussion starts about it.
Sorry for the delay in responding. That is the drawback to this medium. Hopefully you have not sunk too much money into the solution and not found a remedy.

I had same issue. Car would just shutdown.
It turned out to be the distributor. Once replaced problem solved.

#3846 of 4030 01 Millenia S sluggish
Oct 03, 2007 (6:20 pm)
I have an 01 Millenia S--bought it brand new, had some probs w/ spark plug coils--very expensive to replace, especially at dealership. Replaced one, the next year replaced another one, the following year the remaining four. Has about 108K miles. Now running fairly well. However, I have noticed that it is a bit sluggish--other cars (Chevy Cobalt, Kia Optima) appear to have faster acceleration and better pick-up than I do. Embarrassing! Feels as if I have to stand on the gas to make it get up and go. All's well once I'm at 60 mph, problem is getting there! To be honest, the car may have been like this for a while now. Anyone know what could possibly be the problem? Air filter is fairly new, so that should not be the problem. Regular mechanic impressed w/ maintenance of car. Afraid to bring problem to attention of dealership b/c I'm sure they will find a million problems to fix until the problem goes away!
#3847 of 4030 runs bad after hot starts
Oct 20, 2007 (9:28 am)
I have a 2002 Millenia S with 104K miles. I am the second owner since 89K, but I have all the service records from the Mazda dealer who has maintained the car per the book since new. It has been a great car, and is in exceptional condition. The only problem Iíve had until recently is a sticky thermostat which was easy to replace on the 02, it is on the lower hose, not upper as other posters have stated.
Here is my problem, when the car starts cold, and you keep it running without turning it off, it runs great. If for any reason you turn the car off, and start it again before it cools off (2-3 hours), the engine light will start flashing, and the engine will run quite bad. It will run, but rough, like timing, misfire, injection are not correct. It will stay this way; sometimes the engine light will stop flashing, but stay on, until you turn it off and let it go back to cold before starting again.
I can drive it for hundreds of miles with no problems, as long as I donít turn it off.

I had the codes read and it shows 301 which translates to misfire on cylinder #1. I assume it is a coil? Now for the life of me I can't seem to findout which cylinder is #1???
