Mazda2 DJ 2014–2020 Owners Manual / If Trouble Arises / Emergency Starting / Starting a Flooded Engine (SKYACTIV-G 1.3 and SKYACTIV-G 1.5 )

If the engine fails to start, it may be fl ooded (excessive fuel in the engine).

Follow this procedure:

  1. If the engine does not start within fi ve seconds on the fi rst try, wait ten seconds and try again.
  2. Make sure the parking brake is on.
  3. Depress the accelerator all the way and hold it there.
  4. Depress the clutch pedal (Manual transaxle) or the brake pedal (Automatic transaxle), then press the push button start. If the engine starts, release the accelerator immediately because the engine will suddenly rev up.
  5. If the engine fails to start, crank it without depressing the accelerator.

If the engine still does not start using the above procedure, have your vehicle inspected by an expert repairer, we recommend an Authorised Mazda Repairer.
