After 4-8 attempts the car will start. On occasion it stays right away. After 4+ attempts on successful start up some smoke comes out of the exhaust then settles and vast drives normally. Grinding on startup. If the car starts can the starter still be faulty? Or is it more likely the fuel pump? Crank position sensors were changed last week. Thanks

The AC stopped working after a short road trip a couple nights ago while we were sitting in a drive-thru. The next morning, it was working for a little while, but it stopped again while we were driving. It hasn't come back on since. Is this a coolant problem or an electrical problem? Thanks.

I have a problem with my 2008 mazda 5 vehicle, it keep telling me that I have a problem with my AT but no mechanic knew how to fix it, I know its the AUTOMATIC TRANSXALE , but I don't know how to fix it, what is the problem exactly and how I can fix it!?
I'll be glad if anyone could help me!

This happened after the battery and ECU were disconnected and reconnected. I had an auxiliary LED lamp installed and had to take out the battery and ECU to have access to the firewall where the wiring went in. That night, it was the first time I noticed the radiator fan on when normally it won't (A/C was off). The next day, the gauge went all the way up but no signs of overheating. No engine warning light and it runs normal. I plugged in an OBD sensor but no fault codes.

My car overheated and I'm trying to find out what I need to do to fix it

Not very consistent, but sometimes the A/T makes very rough down-shifts. I notice it most at around 30mph.

It seems like there is not enough weight on the front wheels for the low profile tires to have meaningful traction on slick roads.

Hi, So for the last 3 days my car has been noticably slow to start today it began the same with the guages jumping all over and clicks, but this time it wouldn't start. I only tried it a few times and gave up. I noticed that the power windows work so not likely the battery/alternator. Is it more likely starter or starter switch or?? and how can i do this in the least expensive way? I don't have a mechanic currently. I haven't had the battery checked yet and don't want to call roadside assistance until i know where to have them take car..

Today, While replacing the bearings in the wheel hub assembly of my mazda 5 (due to the horrible shaking that occurs in the car at speeds over 35mph). I found I needed (due to my own error) to replace my cv axle also - stripped threads. I have purchased the part, but it wont install into the transmission driveline with the clip in place. Can I install the axle without it?

Im trying to put in the front passenger cv axle and the clip is in the way, please help right away!

it started when I was driving my whole dashboard went completely blank and was hard to accelerate when I got it home I turn engine off then the oil pressure warning light came on and car will not start, I believe the powertrain cut my engine off to protect it but now I don't know how to get it to start

The insurance company only offered us $900.00. Is this fair? Otherwise the car is in very good condition for 119,000 miles.

It looks like a person coughing. What does AT means? I don't have the manual when I bought it.

Replacement of seatbelt/airbag

Im deciding which to buy. Travel for work 15k/yr 3 snowing months Newyork . side road with pot holes. NOT Mazda 5 inquiring about3 ( it was not an option at top of page)

Everything is in a very tight space? Is there a trick to getting better access?

The Dealer is giving me the run around because they can't replicate the problem. The car can just being idling and the traction light comes on and I can feel the car do something underneath. It can be a perfect sunny day and it periodically just comes on.

Car idles smooth (~700rpm) all around until brake is applied and not moving. When you let the brake off idle goes back to normal. I've confirmed this by letting it idle in gear with parking brake on. I initially cleaned the throttle body and MAF sensor with no change. All my internet research is pointing towards a vacuum leak in the brake booster. I've had a helper apply the break while listening and I can't really hear a leak anywhere. Can I get some guidance on how to proceed to find this leak and fix it? Thanks.

Was pulling out of parking garage yesterday and put car in reverse took foot off break car preceded to accelerate
Second time this has happened. 2 months ago same thing

Purchased in July 2014 couple months later noticed tire pressure light on. Took in for service to dealer found nothing wrong rotated the tires light went off.
Light back on a month later

They want to put in a new engine.. I dont think it should have failed.. Any advise?

I have a 2010 Mazda 5 with 78,000 miles It had a loud rattling noise in the engine during acceleration. I took it to a mechanic and they said the timing chain was shot. They replaced the chain, the tensioner and the VVT (not sure if that is the same as the tensioner). They said the noise is still there and that the bearings were bad, causing metal shavings top appear in the oil and that I needed a new engine.

On park position,the car not start and the light in dash is off. At the begenning, this trouble is intermitent but now is always there. I don't ajust the SELECTOR CABLE but the nut are very tights.

Can you hel me ??
