2002 Mazda Millenia dies when idling or sometimes when reversing.

Asked by Jul 03, 2015 at 06:44 PM about the 2002 Mazda Millenia 4 Dr Premium Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have replaced the alternator, Vaccume gasket, distributer, spark plugs, timing belt, fixed
water leak, and thermostat. We've had alot of issues and spent alot of money and now
the car runs fine we just run into this problem when we drive it for long periods of time.

I have two things for you to check. First do a ( Exhaust System Back Pressure Test ) you can get this kit at almost any parts store and next have the ( Toque Converter Clutch Solenoid ) tested . Either one of these things will cause your vehicle to do what you say its doing.


Sorry ment to tell you the exhaust test will let you know if your catalytic converter is partially clogged and the clutch solenoid will tell you if your transmission converter is locking up. Both of these things can cause your vehicle to cut off after driving for long periods of time.
