Engine Performance problem
2006 Mazda 5 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 87000 miles

hello,
my mazda 5 has started trying to die when stopping. It only does this when the car is in drive. It runs fine in park and when going down the road. Just replaced the battery and had the alternator tested. It was ok. Could it be the fuel filter?

Do you
have the same problem?

Hi shellkapp79, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation.

Do you have a check engine light on?

Could be the fuel filter if you check the fuel pressure before and after the fuel filter. I will check this out first.

Was it doing this before you replaced the battery and alternator? If not could be the computer is undergoing a relearning process due to battery being disconnected.

There's other thing's that will cause it-such as the MAF and TPS sensor, Accelerator pedal position sensor-

Hello again,
thanks for the quick response. No, the check engine light is not on and yes it was doing this before I replaced the battery. I also wonder if it could be a spark plug. Pretty sure they need to be changed. That's my next step.

When you replaced the fuel filter did the problem stop. Plus is there a easier way to do the filter instead of dropping the fuel tank please let me know this problem is bugging me.
