Customer Question

My wife has a 2007 Mazda CX-7 with turbo 4 cylinder. It sounds like a diesel and died on her at a stop sign, but she was able to crank it back up and make it 40 miles back home. What could it be?

Is the idle speed to low?

This sound its making, is that occurring every day?

Just the check engine light. And the idle speed is regular. It's been sounding like that everyday for the past month

By chance, any way you can get it scanned to see which codes are stored. What the computer is seeing wrong will help us. Most often a gas engine sounding like a diesel is a fuel related issue, or high head temps, or carbon build up in the combustion chamber.
