Mazda Tribute Problem Report
Mazda Tribute 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.

poor gas mileage, poor idling- acts as if it will die and no power. Thought it might be catalytic converter at first but decided to check out the DPFE sensor first. - Visitor

check engine light appeared and it is the ERG not getting enough pressure or the sensor is bad. Autozone did the diagnostic for free and now I am reading on the web how to clean the valves and try and fix the part. - Visitor
2.0L 5-spd. kept dying every stop, sometimes in 2nd gear on turns. Replace 2 minor things, not cured, went to a Mazda mechanic, and just asked what the issue/part is. Ordered it, $115 had my mechanic install it. SOLVED! - Mazda Tribute 2001 4cyl
Car would run rough on cold start but run fine after warming up. Also whenever it rained it would cause the engine light to come on and misfire. After 6 months of this and taking it to different mechanics who couldn't find the problem one morning the car would barely drive around the block the misfire was so pronounced. Mechanic diagnosed as ignition coil 4 and 6 needed replacing so i replaced 456 and spark plugs($600). The next day car was still hesitating on cold start and took it back to mechanic. He said all was fine and car was OK to take on 400 mile trip i had planned for that afternoon. Car made it 10 miles out of town and started losing power. Just barely made it back home and car would no longer drive. Mechanic came and towed to shop and said catalytic converter had broken(piece actually broke off?) and the EGR valve had melted and would cost upwards of $4000 to fix! So now i'm selling as parts car.... - Visitor
Blew the whole side out of the valve. Had to replace valve and catalytic converter. - Visitor
Egr blew out and we were able to go 40mph at most constantly going down to 2mph. It has been changed and now my car is running loud and not correct - Babiebooface
Hesitation at idle only, runs smooth while accelerating. check engine light on. - Visitor
Also coil misfire - Visitor
EGR needs replacement. Rough idle, poor gas mileage, major lag on inclines, whistling noise on acceleration (not constant) - Visitor
Has blown hole in elbow of Egr valve twice, can't figure out what's causing it to do this - Visitor
DPFE sensor completely melted but I never got a check engine light. The only reason I knew there was a problem with the sensor was because one of the connector tubes blew off. - Visitor
i believe my engine has been running too hard as a result of the problem but i was un aware that it had anything to do with the vehicle engine performance.... now my tribute is knocking - Visitor
