Engine Performance problem
2001 Mazda Tribute 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic
So I'm expecting that my car won't be getting the same millage it use to but I only get about 340km on a tank.
My car has 230,000 KM.
The tranny was replaced with a remanufactured one from the US. Works very well, but should MAZDA do anything with the computer?
I've done a total overhaul of all the things I could do my self.
1) O2 sensors
2) Fuel Filter
3) PCV valve
4) EGV valve
5) Spark Plugs
6) Ignition Coils
Had a smoke test done to find engine leaks.
Fixed both upper and lower manifold gaskets.
Flushed the engine at a place with their special oil. ETC.
Throttle body is clean.
No Engine Codes.
The car does drive better now, but Im still getting bad milleage.
I did clean the MAF sensor with electical cleaner.
Didn't help much.
My last resort is to take it to the dealer, but I feel that they wont really help anyways.
Could something be wrong with my EVAP system.
I get a strong odor of exhaust when I start my car in the cabin.
have the same problem?
