Question about 2006 Mazda Tribute

Open Question

Rear inside tire rub at speed Mazda Tribute

I found a groove on the inside of the tire and all of the inside letters rubbed off. The passenger side is fine. I have heard the noise with the previous set of tires and assumed it was just normal road noise at high speed....guess I was wrong. I got under the vehicle and there is nothing touching the tire. The only thing that appears loose is the plastic guard that protects the fuel filling line. Wondering if anyone else has bad this problem before. Any suggestions would be appreciated before I take it to my mechanic. Tire is Yokohama Geolander 235/70/16

cupping is caused by poorly acting shockabsorbers probably have leaking from the shock struts and may need replacement. sounds a bit early for wear at 50k

SOURCE: the right rear tire is stuck and will not come

Take a big hammer (sledge) and hit the sidewall of the tire and try and jar it off. if all else fails take the hammer underneath the car and hit the tire out, be careful make sure the jack is secure. Also be careful not to hit the rim because you can dent it or hurt the rim. If the lug nuts are all off then that tire has to come off. good luck

SOURCE: what is the correct tire

First of all, don't exceed the maximum pressure that is marked on the tire.
Most cars have the tire size and tire pressure listed on a tag on the inside of the front door or the door jam. Usually the driver's side.
If you can't find the "official" tire pressure on the door or the owner's manual, you are pretty safe using between 30 and 35psi. I keep my 2002 Escape at 35psi.

SOURCE: ABS light on in my 2005 Mazda Tribute. Just had an

You do not steam clean any engines from
1985 on, or you will have problems with water
intruding electical connectors & more

Brake fluid won't be low
As the pads wear & caliper piston moves out,
fluid level goes down,not an issue

The ABS light you should already know is a Vehicle
System Malfunction & we have had those or similar
lights on the dash of all vehilces for 30 years
So nothing new at all. Check for codes,diagnose &
have the ABS Braking System repaired

Testimonial: "I added brake fluid and the light went back out. It had also just turned over to 100k so it could also just be an automatic thing. No more trouble!"

Trying to find out where the crankshaft sensor is located on Mazda Tribute 2002? Need to change it

2004 Mazda tribute 2.0l manual transmission cranks position sensor tip worn / rubbing. p0351, p0352, p0500, p0320 codes. I have a 2004 Mazda tribute with 2.0l 4 cylinder. 140,000 miles. First problem was it would not start but I could hear the fuel pump run and the engine cranked over. I checked for spark and all four plugs had no spark. p0351, p0352, p0500, and p0320 codes displayed.
I have 12 volts at coil. I decided to remove and inspect crank sensor on the transmission side of the engine ( on engine below thermostat housing bolted to engine block) once i removed it i noticed the tip of the sensor was broken, yes, broken. so I knew i found the problem.
I put a new crank sensor in and the car started but ran for 1 hour idling as if a cylinder was not firing. Then it would not start ever again. I removed my brand new replacement sensor to find the tip was rubbed off enough to see the inside metal. i think it could be a possible warped flywheel but I am having trouble finding diagrams of the excitation part of how the crank position sensor works.
I believe the flywheel has holes that excite the sensor. The tribute does move and clutch works for the hour I had it running, so the manual Trans does work as well as the clutch.

In the right rear I get a rubbing noise when making a left turn or during rapid acceleration.

If the tire started coming apart it could have hit the brake dust cover and bent it.

2002 Mazda tribute speedometer does not work

Check your speed sensor in the driver side rear brake/rotor housing. Usually there is only one. Not certain if driver side or passenger side but I know it rear and this is one of the main causes for defective speedometer failure.You should have a check engine light one also.

Falcon troubleshooting

One or more of your tires are no good.
How to check this is : hard to explain.. but will try.. Rub your hand on top the tire... If you are on the passenger side of car rub them counterclockwise and drivers side clockwise... If the tread is bumpy, it will make that noise... If the treads are smooth, then the tire or tires ar o.k.

Rubbing noise from rear passenger side of an 03 navigator

I would guess it is a brake pad that is a little slow releasing sometimes.
