Having problems with your 2001 Mazda Tribute ?
Erratic idle when engine is cold
\015 When i first start the engine in the morning, it idles back and forth from 500 rpm to 2500 rpm until the engine is warm. it seems to be worse when it is cold. occasionally while driving, it seems to take off jumping up around 1000 rpm. it also does it when stopped at a stop light\015
If you take it to Autozone to have a free check they will tell you its the mass air flow sensor. So you put it on and it still has the same problem except now your out of $125. If your check engine light is on too then take it to a place where they can check out the codes and tell you exactly what you need. About $80 for the check. You can't guess at these things and AZ only tells you what might be wrong. Good luck
