Engine light coming on in Mazda Tribute 2004 model

Asked by Nov 24, 2013 at 09:15 AM about the 2004 Mazda Tribute

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an automatic Mazda tribute and for the third time the engine light has come on
whilst driving. The second time this happened the overdrive light was flashing on and off
as well. Called RACQ and someone came out but I was told that my car was too old and
they couldn't hook it up to the computer to check the problem but was told it was
probably a gear box issue. Is this correct?

With the O/D light flashing I'd suspect a problem with the transmission. Your 2004 model is OBD II (1996 and newer) so I see no reason for their scan tools not to work on it. Sounds like they don't know how to fix transmission problems. I'd suggest taking it to a transmission repair shop or your local Mazda dealer for diagnosis. HTH. - Jim
