P0130 and Engine Light ON
Hi Scotty Kilmer, thank you for all what you share it has helped me a long way. Just got this Mazda 3 2005 at 155000 this month, no history about it, by the looks of it, it has not been maintained bolt hard to loosen. Had put 92 gas in it and it didnt want to start at all or turn overover, nothingnothing but light engine radio heater did. Since it was a stick shift manage to jump it old skool.
I followed your video poured in a gallon of Lacquer thinner in on a half tank burnt it all out..
Code reads P0130 failed Emission test twice NOT READY...The following were done so far on it. New spark plugs all 4, oil change, replaced both down and upstream o2o2 sensors due to code P0130..replaced Thermostat and Sensor Tempature Contol. Starter, Alternator and battery tested at Auto Zone and all passed did not to replace any yeepiee.....Spent oveover 400 on parts and 0 on labor but code reads P0130 and Engine light on. On my 3rd diagnostic ugh....1st said there is a air leak either in the exhaust pipes or intake manifold must be replaced..2nd said He is confused so is goi g rethread spark plug #4 and now Im waiting for a call....
2 days ago I had use gas 86 or is it 87 and it started to yank or jerk while driving. Ive noticed that it is running more rough like it did before and very poor, heavy smell from the exhaust comicoming iin the car when windows down on acceleration, poor gas mileage burns more gas. RPMs go down when shiftishifting gears...
This is the only car I have now please help me!!!!
