PUSH GAS PEDAL, CAR DOESNT GO at green light

Asked by Jan 15, 2009 at 05:05 PM about the 2007 Mazda MAZDA6 s Sport - Touring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

5 times now I have been stopped at a red light. When the light turns green and i slowly hit the gas pedal, the car will not go forward. It doesnt rev up, and the agent does not turn off or make any noise, it just doesnt go. I have to turn the car off and turn it back on. When I do, the car jerks forward really hard then goes.

Your Mazda 6s has a throttle system that is electronic. Most cars of today and the past have a direct mechanical cable connection from the gas pedal to the throttle body, so when you push the gas pedal, the throttle opens which increases engine speed. Your car doesn't have the cable, it's operated by two separate but connected sensors, one being on your gas pedal linkage, and another on your throttle body that opens and closes the butterfly valve. You might want to visit some Mazda forums that have '6' owners on there so they can give you specifics.

Jessie has given very good advise! The problem is electronic and creates a danger to YOU! Get it to a dealership immediately!

Thank you for your answer. It has happened before and I had the car towed to Mazda because it is still under warranty. They connected a wire they said had come loose. However it has happened again and this time they say it is not that same wire.
