8 mil socket can get that mostly all the way apart. It's a pain in the butt, but not too long to do. Took me a couple hours.
#24 of 27 Intermittent Starting Issues
Mar 11, 2013 (6:24 am)
I have a 2002 Mazda Tribute V6 4.0 liter. It has roughly a 150K miles. For the last 6 weeks, everytime I start it, then put it in gear (reverse or drive) it drops below 1k RPM and then dies. Then when I try and start it again, it will turn over good but never starts. I thought it was a fuel pump issue, so I replaced it, along with fuel filter. Also has a new battery. My dad is a mechanic and has run the computer on it and it says everything is fine. He also replaced the EVAC canister and removed the cadilic converter. Any other suggestions on what could be the problem?

I just sold my 2005 Mazda tribute to Carmax and bought a Toyota Camry. But before, I sold it, the svc dept at the Mazda dealership said that I either needed a new catalytic converter or I had an exhaust leak. I had been having problems accelerating, etc

Take advantage of free inspections Mazda Dealers provides. I had that done and it was the Idle Air Control Valve, costs $100-$150 to fix or get part very easy to replace yourself.
Take to auto parts store and get free scan done, to make sure you have no misfires.
Going through same stuff for over a month now.

I have the exact same issue and had to replace various coils in the past few years. What did you do to correct this problem?
I have been using aftermarket coils because the price is too high ($114 each) for factory. The factory part number for the 2005 Mazda Tribute Coil for V6 3.0L is 1L8E-12A366-AB.
Does anyone know the resistance settings as I have an extra one I want to test? I need the OHM range so I can test with my Multimeter.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
