#33 of 82 2001 Mazda Tribute ES V6 turns over but will not start
Aug 23, 2010 (8:36 am)
We have a 2001 Mazda Tribute - occassionally it will not start - the motor turns over, battery is good - but it does not catch.
If we leave it for a couple of minutes, then turn the key again , it will start. We had the fuel filter replaced a few months ago and after that particular operation, the issue seemed to go away - unfortunately to return now. Has anyone seen this
before ? , any idea of what the problem could be ?
Our mechanic said last time that they saw no events
in the cars engine computer - in fact for something
there to register the 'check engine light' would have to come on - in this case - the 'check engine light' does not come on - so we have no idea as to the issue.
The car is leaking a little oil but outwith that there is no
other standing issue here.
Any thoughts appreciated .... car has 120k. Oil changed regularly every 5k. miles.

1. If the key shaped lamp on the dash is flashing wile cranking, you have an anti theft problem,
2. The Idle Air Control valve can stick closed intermittently - if you open the throttle a bit while cranking and it starts, change it.
3. If the fuel pump check valve does not hold pressure with the key off it can cause extended crank before starting. Cycle the key on and off before starting (primes fuel system). If it starts with this method, get the fuel holding pressure checked.
4. Get a new mechanic.

Thank you very much .... I was thinking of changing the spark plugs aswell here as
they have not been changed in a very long time .... probably won't do any harm together with the other items you mention here. I had to laugh at point 4. - probably
should consider it cheers ....

#39 of 82 Starting Issue
Oct 03, 2010 (1:56 pm)
2005 Mazda Tribute, starts good in the morning, after driving the car will not start. The key turns over but absolutely nothing happens. All guages and radio etc work but will not start. If you let it sit it will then start. I have had the battery checked and it is not the issue, the starter tested okay...not sure where to go with this , any ideas ?
#41 of 82 Can't start my 2005 Mazda Tribute
Dec 13, 2010 (12:43 pm)
I have been driving my Mazda tribute for the last several moths with no problems. This morning I got in it to drive it and it would not start. The engine turns over normally and the battery is strong. There is just no ignition. I have checked all the fuses I can and I even disconnected the computer. No luck. Does anyone know something I can try?
