Mazda Repair and Maintenance
A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Mazda
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.

I love my p.u. I have kept up maintenance etc and it has always run beautifully, until 2 months ago. When I slow down to stop at a light or stop sign, or to make a slow turn, it starts pulsing and dies. Starts right back up no problem. Have cleaned and changed everything anyone suggests.
