Personally, I'd pass on that car. If it has gotten to the point of the CEL flashing, it's hard to tell really what's wrong with it. There is driveability issues at that point - most likely. Plus, with that mileage, it's a pretty risky vehicle because of so many other items that could soon fail. Heck, even with half of that mileage, I'd still caution the purchase since the parts are often more expensive than other vehicles and the Millenia tends to need a lot of attention in regards to resolving issues with the check engine light periodically appearing and causing you to have to get the codes checked out to find the issue.

I have a 99 milly S 2.3L supercharge with 123,000 miles went to work, lost all power and engine was very loud, I thought it was my muffler got it to autozone and these are the codes they gave me.
we changed the coil on cylinder 3 and replaced all 6 spark plugs, still no power and still have to loud noise, just ordered the front Y pipe with the flex joint, any ideas if this will solve this? I love my milly and would hate to part with it

on my 99 milly s, with supercharger, and 123,000 miles we replaced the coil pack, all spark plugs, "Y" pipe with flex joint, and cataylic converter attached to rear exhaust manifold ( These were all new parts)....now she won't idle and constantly wants to stall...when I step on the gas, you have to get the RPM's up there for her to take off and still struggles up hills....did not have a chance to get to see if there are any more codes that popped up yet. any ideas. I would hate to lose my car. Thank you for any help

I have the same car, but the "ticking" sound like its coming from the passenger side of the engine, is that a bad tensioner?
#4026 of 4030 2001 Mazda millenia chrome wheel corrosion
May 03, 2012 (12:22 pm)
I have a 2001 Millenia that has the 17" chrome wheels that were subject to the TSB issued by Mazda. I was not aware of the bulletin until recently when I began looking online for new wheels because the chrome was coming off of mine. I bought the car from a local Mazda dealer in 2004 and it was still under warranty at the time. But the dealer did not have the wheels replaced before they sold it to me. Now my vehicle is obviously out of warranty and the dealer is not willing to help me. I have also contacted Mazda as well and they said that they do not have to replace them either because the car is not under warranty anymore. From what I have read about these wheels this has been a widespread problem and I don't feel that I should have to pay for the manufacturers defect. Has anyone had any luck getting Mazda to fix this problem or have any suggestions?
#4027 of 4030 1995 Millenia great condition but bad engine
Sep 03, 2012 (10:55 pm)
So our little creampuff has been sitting for about 5 years. Our daughter failed to pull over when an engine light came on, stalled a few miles later, we had it towed. Mazda dealer told us we needed a new engine, but I didn't get the impression, from their inability to answer questions, that they even looked at it. Now I'm wondering whether to repair this car (~50K mileage on the car) for a new driver of age, or sell the car as is. I hear this model with the S designation is rare. Otherwise the car is in great shape, looks new. Any suggestions on tradeoffs, what to do and cost?

My 1997 Millenia with the 2.5 is leaking oil from the camshaft seal on the rear head, passenger side. It appears as if the seal itself is missing. I can see the oil coming out, and feel the cam turning with my finger. How hard is the seal to put in? What needs to be removed and replaced to accomplish installation of a new seal? Thanks!

We had a problem with the engine light coming on and when checked it indicated that one thing needed replacement, then aftter a very short time, the check engine light came back on, and when we hooked it up to the computer, it indicated another thing needed to be replaced. Then, after a short time the check engine light came back on and this time the indication was to replace the part we had just replaced. We finally got the computer replaced (with a rebuilt computer) and that solved the problem.
Hope you get a fix that doesn't cost you too much! Good luck!!
