#69 of 82 Low idle, engine choke and stall at stop
Sep 02, 2012 (11:58 am)
I have a 2004 Mazda tribute. When I stop at a light I have to put my transmission in neutral and rev the engine or else it stalls. It is fine when I'm driving and only has this problem when it is idling.
#71 of 82 2003 Mazda Tribute V6 engine stutter/electrical problem
Sep 27, 2012 (12:29 pm)
Please please someone tell me they can help me!!
I have a 2003 Tribute V6 and here is what is happening:
Around 1500 rpm(driving up a gradual incline makes this happen more) my engine wont accelerate anymore unless I floor it. It feels like it gets "Stuck". if I do not floor it my car will shake and stutter and eventually it feels like it shifts and the rpm's increase. The other thing that happens more frequently now then it used to when my engine "shakes" is once the shaking has subsided all of my gauges will zero out, go all the way to the right (eg. 120mps, 8000rpm, no gas ect ect) zero back out again and then return to the accurate readings. My check engine light IS NOT ON but it lights up when i turn my car on so I know that it works. Please help me someone, I need to get this fixed but it hasn't been able to be diagnosed correctly yet and I am very frustrated

I have this same exact problem with my 03 v6 .....but something new that happened ..i got gas the other night started to go home and when I would press the gas I wouldnt go anywhere it would sputter so I pulled over and it stalled so I truned it off waited then it started up again and I drove it the rest of the way home I am hoping it was bad gas, but I still have the idle problem and hard acceleration!

this happened to me too. Turns out after having it at the dealership for three days they were able to duplicate the sputter and stall out and they discoverd that it was a bad fuel pump. had it replaced and all is good. now the alternator is acting up.

Did you ever resolve your problem? I'm having that same issue right now but it resolves itself after 5 minutes of driving. No mechanic I bring it can duplicate the problem so every few weeks this happens and I've just had to live with it.
