    CEL with code P2009

    My 06 had the same issue on fill up. Easy to fix as well as it sits on top of the engine and has one connector and two hoses if I remember correctly. Probably a 20 min job once you buy the part.

    Sounds like a bad purge control valve.

    2006 Mazda 5 cel issue

    Hi everyone, my 06 auto 5 is failing emission testing for a pending code. No code is being displayed but the evap icon is flashing. Now a flashing means diagnostic not run but it has been like this for the last 200 kms. According to my Innova 3030e manual it can stay up to 80 cycles. Seems...

    Ipod kit from www.gtacarkits.com

    You are absolutely correct. But it'll be more than advertised when you factor in shipping, taxes and possibly brokerage.

    Mazda Ipod Kit vs Isimple Gateway

    I just installed a kit from www.gtacarkits.com in my 05 mazda 5 GT and it took me like an 1/2 hr to install from start to finish. Works great and you can control from the steering wheel as well. Cost me $100 cdn and you can also have local pickup. The instructions for the install are simple...

    What have you done to your Mazda5 today?

    Here is a link of what the rim looks like. They are called Lexion X503 by Rays Eng. They are 19 x 8 with a 48 mm offset. My lip isn't as deep as the ones in the link but same rim. Plan on painting just the centers and leaving the lips polished...

    My new car arriving!!! I wish

    I think it might be a test mule for McLaren. Years ago we had two Ford GT40 come thru and they looked a little worn in the rubber department and a few scuffs here and there. The MaLaren pictured here had all the rims chewed up. Not so much as curb rash but looked like tires had been changed a...

    The filter ends up in the left fender wheel well. The mounting bracket attachment points are behind the piping when you are facing the eng bay from the front. K & N are actually sending a whole new kit aw apparently they have revised the mounting points.

    To answer this an auto. I have some really good tape so the repair might be permanent. Will update after I take the tubing apart.

    CEL on my 06 Mazda 5.

    Well I was toying around with the idea of cleaning the MAF and decided to take it out of the CAI and found this instead. Would explain why having rough idle I guess. The two mounts are actually cracked.

    CEL on my 06 Mazda 5.

    well, an update. replaced the purge control valve after getting a cel p2187 code. Now the car still stalls occasionally in reverse only and no cel. The scanner is giving me a code pending withe the EV icon flashing. Going to wait until it throws another code to see what else develops.

    5 turns off when I put it in reverse WTF?

    Did you have a resolution with the reverse only stall after. Mine has developed this annoying habit as well. I just replaced the purge control valve as thats what the cel was pointing me at but it still happens occasionally. Thanks

    I'm pretty sure it's the purge control valve. Have one on order from local dealership. I took the other one and and cleaned it up as best I could but no joy. I made a pictoral of where the valve is on TM3. Thanks for the pdf Aaron. I was looking at the manual as well. Seems the purge...

    CEL on my 06 Mazda 5.

    Scanned the code and its giving me P2187 meaning lean left bank at idle. Most likely culprit is purge control valve. Anybody have theres replaced yet and did it solve the problem? I erased the code and will see if it comes back.
