Replaced throttle body W/ 86K mile used Didn't fix Replaced fuel pump/ filter
My mazda6 starts goes in gear without having to step on clutch however the tires seems like there stuck and won't go! Is it my clutch or ??
Over the last couple of years, several times by now, my car goes into low RPM mode and I have to restart it to continue driving. Always the same code - P2110 - Throttle Actuator Control System - Forced Limited Engine Speed. So I decide to give the throttle body a bit of cleaning.Take off the air hose and look at throttle place. It's a bit dirty, but nothing too horrible. I turn the ignition on and put a dumbbell on the gas pedal to open the throttle plate. I find the throttle plate mostly open but vibrating nervelessly. Then all of a sudden it just fully closes and then opens and continues to vibrate. Is this normal? Is the vibration normal? The closing? I don't think so. Seems like the system looses throttle plate position. Am I wrong or is it time to replace the throttle body? Here is the video I took of the throttle plate vibrating:
Engine is making a steady clank sound. It's rough but I know my oil pump is pretty jacked up. But anyway, is there such a thing as an oil strainer for this vehicle??? I can't find it anywhere on the net.
set a po2088 code i changed the oil control valve doesnt seam to pull code anymore but still will not start.Cranks over fine and tries to start but will not.it sounds like fuel pump is coming on
After puttin neutral for a few seconds then returning to drive it's ok. Tran fluid is ok. Could this be an electrical or computer issue??
Ok, there are two things that went wrong, that lead to my mazda not starting.
the gas gauge started reading a quarter tank when completely run out of gas. then a few weeks later it read 1-1/2 quarter tank of gas when it ran out. then finally a half tank. now it wont start, but when it finally gets started up, it puts and sounds horrible, then when you barely tap gas pedal, it instantly dies. the engine hesitated for a couple days, then on the second day it finally would not start.
the shop i took it to to have it diagnosed said it was a cracked intake manafold.
is this a part i would easily be able to change myself? and what tools would i need?
When I started by car this am, the engine sputters for a bit then stalls after 20-30 seconds. Also, when I press on the gas it doesn't "rev" at all. Is it something with the transmission??
