#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???

I have a 95 millenia with a 2.5 v6 .The firing order is 123456. the distributor cap has numbers stamped at each terminal that read 123546.My question is,do i plug in wires according to firing order or numbers stamped on cap.

This is easily fixed yourself. Make a small hole with an icepick type tool. Squirt spray grease in the hole. Wipe off, clean off excess and seal with shoe goo or household goop. Let dry overnight. Voila. No more squeak

I should have been more clear. Squeaky rear bushings (above the rear tires) are enclosed in a little rubber boot. Just make a hole big enough for some silicone grease to be sprayed in via a straw connected to the aerosol nozzle, and re-seal the hole...you are all set.
