Mazda Tribute engine problems.

(2005 Mazda Tribute)
in Lookout Mountain, GA on December 05, 2010
My 2005 Mazda Tribute has been acting up in the rain. After it dries it runs good until last week and it finally died. Heard alot of bad news when it comes to the coils and Fords so I finally got them all changed, front and back but still want crank. It will turn over like it wants too but wont start. Anybody with any ideas......

fuel pump is a common failure. a pressure test will confirm. easy repair. remove the back seat lower portion to expose the acess plate for the fuel pump module.

I had the same problem in my 2005. Changed some of the coils (as that is what the code indicated) but the reason was actually the computer. Ouch - $3K! While it's very uncommon, the rain and moisture could be it as I was told the computer is in a location that isn't optimal for protection from that. I live in Minnesota so a lot of wet weather between rain and snow. Hope that's not what it is but could be. Mine acted up for a year before it finally caused a big enough issue that I had it diagnosed.
