I am very new here, and a not so proud owner of a Mazda 3 1.6 diesel with turbo, year 2006.
To start off, I have had lots of problem with this car. When I bought it back in October, it seemed fine, but soon the problems started.
I have had several oil leaks repaired. I have also...
I can't find a guide or even a picture with the location of the EGR valve. I'm having intermittent long crank problems and saw that some people fixed it by cleaning the EGR. I've changed the spark plug, the battery is new. Ordering a new MAF sensor is this doesn't work because I've already...
I've got a 2.0 and I want to install a oil catch can to prevent the carbon build up.
Do I also need to block off EGR or not ?
Which hose do I need for the PCV system ?
3/8 , AN-6 or something else ?
Did someone of you this mod ?
So after installing the thermal gasket for the throttle body, I found my intake manifold to be disgusting. So I went ahead and got EGR delete plugs from JBR. Basically t just deletes the EGR tube and put plugs in place of it.
You have to take off the intake, TIP, battery, and throttle body...
Hey guys, ok so doing some little bit of cleaning on the throttle body today and after looking at my intake manifold, it was pretty sooty so I want to do the EGR pipe delete and I bought the plugs from JBR which only plugs both ends of the pipe. How do you remove that 22mm nut? My 22mm wrench...
Alright help me out here. I've read so much info on catch cans and other crap I have confused myself. It seems that an oil catch can is a good thing to have in these cars. Isn't the EGR the main cause of the soot and carbon build up? James Barone sells an EGR block off plate for 20...
Just wondering if anyone's looking into this. So far I've gathered (googling, wiki-ing)that this EGR valve opens when temp/pressure in the cat approaches "too hot" and thus redirect hot exhaust back into intake manifold.
As good as its meant to be for emission and cat converter...
