I have a '06 Mazda Tribute with 4cyl, Automatic Trans, 84,000 miles. Since April at 70,000 miles the dealer has been trying to find what causes this stuttering. After vehicle warms from standing stop as I accelerate at 500 RPM intervals starting at 2000 the engine stutters, shutters, and violently looses power. After shifting to second gear the stutter only happens occasionally. I also noticed a bump or jolt while at steady throttle between 35 & 60. On the highway beyond 60 it is fine, for a 4 banger...
Fuel pump, fuel Filter, fuel pressure regulator, Charcoal Canister, Air Filter, PCM, Catalytic Converter, and a short at the ECM have been addressed. Yet the problem remains. I very concerned about the effect on the drive train as this stuttering continues. I have no more patience.

I sure hope they do something about it.
I have noticed that my "SUV" surge forward when i drive while its still cold. And of course the dealer says there is nothing wrong with and the tech could not replicate the issue. I cant wait to be done with school so i can trade that junk "FOUND ON the ROAD DEAD" FORD. For something better.
