I posted something similar last night on my daughter's Mazda6. It sputters/skips bad and now she has bad exhaust spell inside the car! When it first started skipping, the mechanic (not Mazda dealership) said it was the coils. He changed out; did fine for a while, but weeks later started doing it again. Found out then, they changed the wrong coils! Changed the right ones, but later doing it again. I think it's more like a fuel filter/pump problem. Now with the bad exhaust smell, I'm wondering if it's that and more!

i have an 03 mazda6 with the check engine light that stays on. sometimes it chokes down immediately after starting it, or when i am stopped at a light unless i give it some gas. it cranks back up as soon as i put it in park and turn the key. i took it to a shop with a diagnostic computer and they said that i need to replace to computer. however, finding a new computer has proven to be a difficult task, i heard you may be able to reset the computer. any advice?
#2661 of 2861 Transmission and Steering wheel columns
Nov 30, 2010 (5:12 am)
Not happy at all with my 2009 Mazda 6, the car has had problems with a clunking noise when turning, began at 8,000 miles, at 12,000 dealer replace the steering wheel column, continued to have issues, filed a complaint with BBB , which I did not win anything. Have been continually told by Mazda in Californina this a result of too many miles on my car. I drive almost 20,000 a year for work. Now I have almost 59,000 still have steering wheel colums and the last problem the car would not go in reverse or drive. Now my car is at the dealer for ..... a NEW TRANSMISSION
I have NEVER had a car with so many issues, should have went back to Toyota, traded my 2002 Camry with 200,000 miles and had no problems. Very dissapointed with Mazda customer service.

that spuddering thing i had that happen to me before. When i came back from deployment i was excited to get in my car for the first time in over a year. Once i was driving back up to base i started to notice that when it was in 5th gear it was starting to spudder and give me feedback from the pedals, then when i was sitting stationary it would just u could see the rpm going close to 2000. I took it too a mechanic and they switched out the coils and said it would be fine. then a month or so later it did it again took it back to them they have no idea, reset my computer and tell me to come back if it keeps doing it. I was unsatisified about it but i left. Once it started doing it again and the check engine like came back on i went back there they charged me a 80 diag. fee and replaced my gas cap. So bascially they charged my 250 to fix something that wasnt wrong with the car and another 100 bucks for a $20 gas cap. I let this piece of crap hawaiin get an earful even made two people walk out. took my car to checkers talked to one of those guys and it turned out it was the spark plug. It was burnt to toast why beacuse i was running 89 gas through it. when i went back to 87 everything was ok. but im sure if i kept using the 89 im sure my fuel pump would be as messed up as me.
#2664 of 2861 screeching and grinding sounds from brakes
Mar 02, 2011 (7:34 pm)
Just recently i replaced my rotors and brake pads in my mazda6 06. It was a bit of a pain in the ass replaceing the rotors cause of those gay little screws. once i got them out it was really simple. but my problem is that my front right wheel i hear nothing but screeching and scrathing from it. When i turn ecspeacially sometimes when i accelerate but it doesnt happen all the time some times your hear nothing, and other times its all you can hear. but it not a constant sound its like theres a huge scratch on the rotor and when the wheel spins you can hear it make that sound at certain spots. what do i do
#2665 of 2861 2009 Mazda6 i: Chirping/Squealing Sound
Mar 13, 2011 (3:56 pm)
I have a 2009 Mazda6 i Touring edition with the 2.5 Liter, 4 cylinder, 5 speed automatic. After turning on the engine and onces its warmed up, there is a constant chirping/squealing sounds coming from the engine. I opened the hood and the sounds seems to be coming from where the belt is located.
Any idea what the problem could be and how much will it cost to be fixed? It has 25,000 miles on it.
Feedback and Opinions would be greatly appreciated.

I have a 2006 mazda 6 s with 3.0 v6. i have the same issue. i have only had the rig for 6 months and it has 75000 miles on it. between 1/8 and 1/4 it sputters and goes into a shut down mode. it will idle but will not run. i can nurse it to a filling station and fill it up and the problem dissipates. i have been told it was a fuel pump, fuel filter and so on. the dealer informs me i will have to remove the tank and replace pump at a cost of 600.00. i prefer to just fill it up for know. any one else have a placeable solution.
