Asked by Mar 22, 2015 at 04:04 PM about the 2002 Mazda MPV LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Now the van will not start at all

1 Answer


Why did you add coolant in the first place, did you have a problem. The coolant that overheated and sprayed the engine is probably on some electrical/ignition components not allowing it to start. Let it dry out, find the coolant leak and see if it starts.
