I originally replied to a post over here http://forum.mazda6club.com/index.php?show...t&p=1608169, but thought I might also need to post in the newbie section, since I'm new and don't really know a whole lot. so here was my post:

I'm having pretty much the same problem with my 2003 Mazda6 V6 manual. No mods at all. In the past it used to just happen right when I started the car. The engine would make a lugging sound, the RPMs would bounce around 1000, and I wouldn't be able to rev past 3000. TCS indicator light (car w/ squiggly lines) and the TCS OFF light would both be on. Turning the car on and off and playing with the TCS OFF button next to the steering wheel would eventually get me going again, then the check engine light would be on for a couple days.

Now, it's happening while I'm driving, just as the original post describes. Only, pressing the TCS OFF button does nothing now! I had to get my car towed last night.

I'm going to try the battery trick mentioned here, but is there anything else I can do to get this fixed? Is it just an electrical problem or is there something more?

Thanks![/b]

Hey, I started the original thread, sorry I never got back to it. I brought the car into have it looked at, and they tell me its the throttle body that is causing the problem. I can sort of understand that, since I've found that if I drive while constantly moving the peddle the car won't have a problem. Its only if I hold the throttle in one spot that the problem will come up.

I ordered a new throttle body and it gets here tomorrow, so hopefully that should fix the problem! If it does, I'll let you know. Dealer wants $600 to replace the throttle body, but screw that. Bought an optimized one from cordovamotorsports.com for $300 and I'll install it myself.
