DESCRIPTION

Some vehicles may experience a lack of engine power/rough idling and the check engine light on with one or more of the misfire related DTCs of P0300:00, P0301:00, P0302:00, P0303:00 and P0304:00. This concern may be caused by an internal failure of the ignition coil(s) due to a high difference between cold and warm ambient temperatures. The production method of the ignition coil has been changed to eliminate this concern.

NOTE: The ignition coils are supplied from two different vendors, YUMEBISHI and MITSUBISHI. This concern only occurs on YUMEBISHI- produced ignition coil.

To distinguish between YUMEBISHI and MITSUBISHI ignition coils, look at their lot numbers (A). YUMEBISHI have 4 digit lot numbers and MITSUBISHI have 5 digit lot numbers as shown.

Customers having this concern should have their vehicle repaired using the following repair procedure.

 

REPAIR PROCEDURE

  1. Verify the customer concern and the misfire related DTC(s) exists using the M-MDS.
  2. Switch the two ignition coils of the cylinder with a misfire (identified by the misfire DTC) and a cylinder without misfire.
    • If the misfire transfers to the other cylinder, the ignition coil is defective. Go to next step.
    • If the misfire does not transfer, a different cause such as malfunction of the wiring harness, spark plug etc. is possible. In this case, this TSB is not applicable. Perform further diagnosis according to the workshop manual.
  1. Replace the defective ignition coil(s) with modified one(s) according to the workshop manual (section 01-18). CX-5: IGNITION COIL/ION SENSOR REMOVAL/INSTALLATION [SKYACTIV-G 2.0, SKYACTIV-G 2.5]. Mazda3: IGNITION COIL/ION SENSOR REMOVAL/INSTALLATION [SKYACTIV-G 2.0, SKYACTIV-G 2.5]. Mazda6: IGNITION COIL/ION SENSOR REMOVAL/INSTALLATION [SKYACTIV-G 2.5].
  1. Check if any of the other non-defective coils are YUMEBISHI-produced and made before lot number 6328 (March 28, 2016 production). If any were made before this date, replace them with modified one(s) as well.
  2. Verify the repair
