well these cars are well put together I think. I have a 2000 mazda 626 which is way sportier than the millenia anyway but it ran hot for the longest time and it would go well up in the Hot zone and any other car would have blown head gaskets etc so I can only say good things when it comes to these cars even though we spend money and complain they are still great cars and were built to last but with ANY car you have to do things here and there to keep them in order.. But I love mine and would have it fixed if anything because we dont want those payments huh lol

#3998 of 4030 P0400 Code EGR 2001 Millenia 2.5L
Apr 20, 2010 (9:43 am)
Just wondering about this one, I know the code is for EGR valve, my friend took this off and soaked it in cleaner but the check engine light came back on shortly after being reset. The exhaust smells a little worse than other vehicles, does that mean it's most likely a catalytic converter? How many are even on this vehicle? The vehicle seems to run fine but would like to correct the problem if it's not too expensive.
#3999 of 4030 2001 Mazda Millenia engine noise tapping
Aug 11, 2010 (4:22 am)
I just purchased a 2001 Mazda Millenium V6. with 100,000 miles. It ran good when purchased. Last week I began hearing heavy tapping noise coming from motor when I started the car. When I excellerate the tapping noice would go away or quiet at times. Other times the tapping would get worse. It has got to a point I cannot drive the car because of fear I will do permanent damage to the motor. Has anyone experienced this problem or have an idea of the what the issue could be?

the 0170/73 are common. you have a couple of vacuum leaks. there are 3 actual "tees" and a bunch of "Y"s that connect about 21 feet of vacuum line. one or more of the tees are broke, and air is coming in. easy fix, but you gotta take off the whole intake to get to them rascals. lotsa labor, lotsa stuff has to come off. btdt. we have 2 99s'. if you cannot do the work yourself, the car will eat your lunch. get rid of it.
p0303 is misfire on #3 cyl. most likely the coil is bad. the rt bank(rear) coils get way more heat than the fronts. and #3 is the middle one back there. also, because of the intense labor to get to the plugs, lotsa places you take the car to will charge you for the plug change, but never do it, because it takes a couple hours to get to them suckers. when i do it, i make sure i got new plugs, and i take a known good set of coils and replace them. you can switch the coils from the back to the front, because the front ones will outlast the rears. and if someone says to switch #3 coil with another and see if the miss follows, has NEVER done this job on a 2.3.
p0431 is your post cat 02 sensor telling you the cat is dying. that, along with 1173(heated o2 sensor, same bank) tells me somehow you fubar'd the cat. you need to take care of the fuel problem, because if fuel fubar'd the sensor and the cat, if you just put another one on, it will kill them, too

what motor do you have? the 2.5 has hydraulic lifters, and if they are stuck, they will make a racket. also, if the timing belt tensioner is bad, it will make a sound very much like a bad lifter, and the sound goes away when the motor is revved. the 2.3 has solid lash adjusters, so if they were bad, you would have noise all the time. however, the tensioner can make a lifter noise on the 2.3, too. if the knock is coming from deep inside the motor, you got BIIIIG problems

most common is the motor is gummed up. you can take it out and clean it. next is the relay, it can go bad. to remove the motor, you pull the lower panel under the turn signal switch. you can then see the motor. it is held in by 4 screws, but 2 of them are covered by the panel right next to the one removed. i make 2 holes in the panel to access the screws, pull the motor, take it apart, clean, regrease, reinstall, and hope
