Mazda Problems

Check Engine Light Due to Engine Misfire

If the engine is misfiring, it may be caused by a damaged wire(s) which connect the fuel injectors to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). The damaged wire(s) can be repaired or the emission wire harness replaced. A misfire can result in a loss of engine performance and illumination of the Check Engine Light.

Mazda just replaced my transmission under warranty due to it slipping from 1st to 2nd gear
