Mazda Navajo ProblemsEngine Stalls when Coming to a Stop, Rough Idle
If the engine stalls when coming to a stop and/or has a rough idle, it may be due to sludge accumulation in the throttle body and idle air control valve. The throttle body and idle air control valve will need to be cleaned if there is buildup.
If the engine cranks but does not start, it may be caused by a tripped inertia switch. Switch the key to "ON" and the fuel pump should be heard running for a second or two. Listen at the gas filler if necessary. The inertia switch is located on the firewall and can be tripped when the parking brake is set too hard and then released. The inertia switch should be reset, and will click when it is reset.
If you experience difficulty starting the engine when cold, stalling at idle, or hesitations during acceleration, it may be the idle air bypass valve. This valve helps the vehicle idle steady when the accelerator pedal is not pressed.
Mazda Navajo Questionsfuel pump not working,replaced it could it be the fuel pump driver module (1 answer)
I have checked the reset switch and the relay and all other fuses, this truck was a gift I love it but had some major ploblems brakes, abs,clutch,4x4system,fuelpump,and plugs,and wires keep fouling out
it burns a lot of gas.
I am replacing the actuator motor which had been stolen. On the transfer case there are three wires coming out. Two are together and one by itself, all three next to the driveline. Where do they go?
