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.

Failed Cooling Fan Module May Cause Fan to Run Constantly or Not At All

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.
