2006 Mazda 6, car is stalling when slowing down or stopped
130k miles, new battery, recent oil change. Car completely died at a stop light - couldn't even turn on hazards. Put the car in neutral and was able to coast about 10 feet in which case the lights came on and I was able to start the car again. The car died again when coming to a stop or slowing down. I was able to keep it from dying by holding the clutch down and giving it some gas and using the emergency break to slow/stop. Diagnostics at the service station showed no error - the car doesn't know it's having a problem. What could be going on???
Have the codes scanned someplace else. I can not imagine a 2006 that does that will not throw some kind of code.
True, it should have gave a code reading sounds like your idle screw is too low, & try getting a alternator reading just to be safe.
ok - will do! they did confirm that they've never seen anything like this..no error code where there's clearly a problem.
A 2006 Mazda6 does not have an "idle screw" It's throttle body FI
Sounds like your fuel pump is going out. Either that or the baffles in the gas tank could have broken which would cause the fuel in the tank to slosh backwards on take-off and forwards stopping if you're below a quarter of a tank. It happened to me, that's how I know.
I was driving yesterday and my car cut off but I started it back and I start driving but I could nt go ova 20 miles what could it be
My Mazda 6 2003 is cutting out when I decelerate, not always but when it starts the problem is continuous for a period of time. Especially when I enter a roundabout and slow. However, when I take it to a mechanic the problem does not present itself. I can usually restart it. I even tried putting in neutral and increasing the rpm's but it still cut out at a stop. Any ideas. Could it really be the fuel pump if it does not always happen. My car knowledge is really limited and I do not speak the language very well where I live so that compounds the problem.
