1994 Mazda MPV Problems

Cranks but Won't Start, Was Running OK

If the engine cranks but won't start, the fault may be internal to the distributor. Diagnosis will show no spark and trouble codes for the crankshaft position sensor (CKP) or the camshaft position sensor (CMP). Our technicians recommend replacement of the complete distributor assembly if these conditions occur.

Ticking Noise From Valve Lash Adjusters Due to Infrequent Oil Changes

A loud ticking noise (hydraulic valve lifter noise) may be heard from the top of the engine, particularly when the engine is still cold. The noise may occur more frequently on higher mileage vehicles; Hydraulic valve lash adjusters may need to be replaced to correct this issue. Following the maintenance schedule for oil changes will also help prevent a recurrence of the noise.

Leaking Coolant Pump Leads to Damaged Timing Belt

A leaking coolant pump can leak onto the timing belt and cause it to tear. Our technicians recommend replacing the coolant pump and timing belt every 60,000 miles to help avoid this problem. It is also important to follow the fill procedure for coolant on this engine to avoid problems.
