Mazda 6 V6 2006: having surging issuez

Asked by Oct 25, 2016 at 09:24 AM about the 2006 Mazda MAZDA6 s 4dr Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm a new owner of an used Mazda 6 it is a
v6 3.0 automatic 2006. My dad got it at a
dealer when they had an as is action for only
$1000.  The car is in good condition but has
a surging issue, and a engine code  that says
it is miss firing. I got the sparkplugs to
replace them but I am thinking it is more
than just sparkplugs. When it is surging
(never in park or neutral) but in gear either at
idle or when accelerating it surges/ bucks. If
you listen to it when it does this I swear you
hear a grind or cranking sound. I've checked
the fluids all is good but I think the
transmission is a little high( above the full
line by maybe an 1/8 or 1/4 of an inch.
Wondering if anybody could help

You have to pinpoint where the grinding or cranking sound is coming from, most probably why the engine is surging. Are you checking the fluid correctly? Engine warm and running, in park and parked on a level surface? Is the CEL still on? What are the 4 digit codes?

Tom I just had it read the codes read: P0300, P0401, P2144. The gentleman said the one active is the P2144. As for the sound it's hard to figure out as it has to be in gear, reverse or drive but it's coming from the right side, I'll have someone here in a little to help in an hour, to find exactly where at.
