Mazda Tribute Problems

Check Engine Light and Hesitation or Stumbling While Driving

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.

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.

Stalling After Cold Start

If the engine stalls after a cold start (the vehicle has been parked for a while), the idle air control (IAC) valve may be sticking. It may be fouled with carbon buildup. If cleaning the valve does not solve the problem, replacement will be needed.

Mazda Tribute Recalls

Fuel Delivery Module Leaks Fuel

The fuel delivery module (FDM) may crack and leak fuel. Dealers will replace the FDM flange with one that has a redesigned fuel supply port free of charge to resolve the concern.

Shift Lever Disengages From Transmission

The shift lever may not be fastened securely to the transmission. Dealers will inspect the transmission and if necessary tighten the manual shift lever bolt or replace the lever assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.

The Vehicle May Stall

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.

Mazda Tribute Reviews

My 2003 Tribute was bought brand new and I still own it. It has now 140 miles. I had to change front & rear suspension. Tune up twice, needed motor mounts replaced and normal maintenence. Now we have an oil leak and the ai conditioning system doesn't produce cold air and we can't figure out why. I would appreciate any helpful comments.
Overall love my 2011 Tribute bought used in 2013. Now it's at 78,000 miles my family loves it too. Never give us problems runs well with zero issues. It's a great commuter SUV very pleased with everything on the Mazda would love to have another one.
I have a problem with the Electrical System. After starting the Engine, the car will mnot move in Drive. Fuses # 6 and # 32 fail often. It was checked and cleared by Almaden Mazda Dealership in March (07- 2014) and the car had the same problem on 4-26-14. The dealership had given an OK on 3-7-14, but the problem persists
