Mazda Premacy Common Problems and Solutions

Overheating Engine

Problem:

The engine is overheating, and the check engine light is on.

Models affected:

Solution:

While all cars can have problems with an overheating engine, on the Premacy it's very likely the issue is being caused by the engine cooling fan. The cooling fan control module is well known for failing early on the Premacy, and you're going to need to order a replacement from us. The good news is that it's an easy job to install the new module yourself.

Revs Dropping

Problem:

When you stop at traffic lights or a junction, the revs drop to between 100 and 200, which makes it feel like the engine is about to cut out. However, it doesn't.

Models affected:

Solution:

The ignition cable is likely to be the problem here. It's important to address this issue as soon as possible because ignoring it will lead to more damage to your ignition assembly. Head to our parts page for the Premacy and order a replacement, and install your new ignition cable.

Erratic Braking

Problem:

The brakes are behaving erratically and often fail to work at all.

Models affected:

Solution:

The older your Premacy, the more likely it is that the front brake discs will warp. The only solution here is to replace the brake discs, which you'll be able to find easily in our store. Don't forget to check and replace the brake pads if the warped discs have caused excessive wear.

Models affected:

Solution:

You will need to replace the anti-roll bar drop links to rectify the problem.

ABS warning light

Problem:

Has the ABS warning light appeared on the dashboard of your Premacy? If it has, it will most likely be caused by a faulty ABS wheel sensor. This is quite common on this vehicle.

Models affected:

Solution:

You will need to run a diagnostic check to correctly identify which wheel the faulty sensor is on. Once you have identified this, you will need to fit a replacement ABS sensor to fix the problem. This should turn off the warning light on the dashboard. We can help you find a replacement ABS sensor at a very low price.

Corroded oil sump

Problem:

There have been known issues with the oil sump corroding on the Premacy. If you check underneath of the car and notice oil on the ground and/or oil clinging to the bottom of the sump, this is an indication of corrosion.

Models affected:

Solution:

You will need to replace the oil sump to resolve the issue.

Engine misfiring

Problem:

The coil pack is known to fail on the Premacy. If you are finding that the engine is misfiring and experiencing irregular revs, then a faulty coil pack is the most likely cause. The revs should be constant instead of jumping up and down. You may also be finding that there is a lack of power in the engine.

Models affected:

Solution:

Fitting a replacement coil pack should sort the problem. Watch the video below for an idea on how to do this:

Clutch Is Stuck To The Floor

Problem:

The clutch has stuck to the floor, and the car won't go into gear.

Models affected:

Solution:

Have a check of your master cylinder and slave cylinder. If there are any leaks, then you're going to need to order a replacement from BreakerYard. If there are no leaks, you can try bleeding the system and then top up the master cylinder if it's needed.

Heavy Rattling From Car front

Problem:

When you accelerate, you can feel some heavy vibrations coming from the front of the car.

Models affected:

Solution:

The number 4 engine mounting bolt on a Premacy built between April 2005 and September 2007 wasn't tightened correctly, leading to sometimes dramatic engine shake. You can solve this problem by locating the bolt and tightening it.
