2001 Mazda MPV Problems

Engine -- Verified

Defective or worn out ignition coils can cause engine misfires and Check Engine Light illumination. If the problem is severe enough engine performance will suffer and the Check Engine light will flash on and off.

Engine -- Verified

The cooling fan module can fail causing the fan to either run constantly, or not operate at all. If the fan runs continuously, the engine may not warm up properly, and if the fan does not run, the engine may overheat. Mazda has a voluntary recall on model years 2002-2003 to address this concern. Please click here to find a Mazda dealer near you.

Engine -- Verified

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.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

The PCV valve can crack open and create a vacuum leak and lean fuel mixture, which can result in surging and/or engine misfires.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

Some MPV's may experience Check Engine light illumination with specific trouble codes stored in memory. If the two codes are stored, there are updated parts for the evaporative emissions (EVAP) system, and updated software for the Powertrain Control Module (PCM).
