Mazda Problems

Turbocharger May Fail

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

Misfire and Check Engine Light Due to Failed Ignition Coil

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 Noise Due to Worn Timing Chain

The engine may develop a ticking noise from the front of the engine due to a worn timing chain. Our technicians tell us that replacing the timing chain and related component will generally correct this issue.
