You lift the back seat where the gas tank is and there is a puddle of gas just sitting under the seat where my 3 kids usually sit. What is causing it to leak like that? I can't roll the windows down without inhaling the fumes from the gas. I purchased the car like this. They told me there was no leak, because there was no puddle under the car. They never checked under the seat. Please help!!!!

I just hear one single click, it almost sounds like the starter wont turn over, but that has been replaced in the last 2 yrs. Could it be that or the Alternator?

replaced the regulator and motor checked switch and fuse traced wires back to fuse box and everything is fine what else could be wrong? It rolled down and wont go back up.

It tried to crank but wouldn't. What is wrong?

Had a sudden episode of trying to crank but wouldn't.. What could it be

engine light and its hard to start.what could be the problem kindly assist me.

It usually comes on after about 15-30 miles. If short trip it will not come on.
This last time it came on and will not go off
The air pressure is fine in all tires including the spare.

found a 5A labeled EEC pulling 7 DC volts a 30 A HTD SEAT pulling about 7-9 volts and a BTN! 40 A pulling 12 volts I have had the alternator changed out no help I had to install a kill switch to get around the battery problem I would like to know what this could be....

Thank You

Twice brought to mechanic to adjust height. He said he bled brakes but no change in height. Sometimes my foot catches corner of gas pedal when I apply brakes.

Sometimes I have to rock the car or park it on an incline to hear a click so that it will start again after I have turned the car off.

How do I change this myself?

I checked the oils water battery could it be the starter

down to the bulb socket but Mazda doesn't sell just the socket, you have to purchase the whole tail light assembly. I've tried three of these (made in Taiwan) and the bulb socket is still doing the same thing. To make sure it was the bulb socket I switched it with the side that was working and got the same problem. I've taken it to the dealership and called Mazda customer service and no one can help me.

What to do next?

once you put the key in and start car when you turn it off it will turn engine off. but key will not turn all the way off & lock & come out.

Changed EGR valve less then a year ago

battery and alternator check out ok
