My 2005 Tribute, V6, has virtually no power from take off

Asked by Jul 08, 2013 at 03:11 PM about the 2005 Mazda Tribute s

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've taken my tribute to a local mechanic who performed fuel pressure and volume test, exhaust back pressure test, inspected for vacuum leaks and checked knock sensor operation, and checked static timing check, all with no problems. He checked fuel pump pressure that was 42 psi. I had already changed out the mass air flow and throttle sensors. I took to a local mazda dealer who diagnosed a bad bad fuel pump, saying it was only performing at 26-32 psi. Changed out the pump, and still didn't solve the problem.

80, 00 miles, changed out plugs and fuel filter about 4 months ago. Had the computer reset also. Took to a different shop last week, they say I need to replace both exhaust manifolds......

I just brought my 2008 Mazda Tribute in for the same issue (specifically noticeable in snow) and they just told me it's the power takeoff unit which isn't working, if that helps.
