Mazda Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Mazda

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.

A lack of power may develop due to a failed turbocharger. Failed turbochargers will require replacement to restore engine power.

The DPFE (differential pressure feedback EGR) sensor tends to fail. The DPFE sensor monitors function of the EGR valve by measuring pressure changes in the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system. Symptoms of a failing DPFE sensor are hesitation or stumbling when driving along with illumination of the Check Engine Light.

This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in southern Florida, along the Gulf Coast, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, and Saipan. Upon deployment the passenger airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the passenger side air bag inflator to correct this concern. Note: this supersedes recall #14V-344.

These vehicles are equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system designed to warn the driver if the pressure in one or more tires becomes to low. In the affected vehicles, if all four tire were to gradually loose pressure at the same rate the tire pressure monitor system (TPMS) may not alert the driver of the drop in pressure. If the vehicle is operated with the tires at the incorrect pressure sudden tire failure could result, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will update the TPMS software to correct this concern.

The electronics for the hybrid system have their own unique cooling needs. The coolant pump for this system can fail resulting in overheating of the hybrid electronics. As a result the powertrian may shut down causing the vehicle to stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the Motor Electronics Coolant (MEC) Pump with an improved "brushless" pump to correct this concern.
