    ACCORDING TO THE MANUAL ADJUSTING THE THROTTLE AIR INTAKE VALVE IF THE THROTTLE STOP HAS BEEN MOVED MAY CAUSE ENGINE MALFUNCTION?

  • crabtree58 Oct 05, 2008

    so are we saying that adjusting the air idle will not cause engine malfunction on a mazda 3 after the throttle stop has been moved if you can confirm the procedure again as i have lost it i will give it a go

Follow the procedure descrtripted on the link below to reset throttle and accelerator position on a Mazda ECU:

How to:ECU Reset,Throttle & Accelerator Position Learning

    I report some procedure from the site here:

    ECU Resetting Procedures



    Timing is extremely critical. If it is NOT DONE within the specify
    time, the ECU will not reset and the Check Engine Light (CEL) will
    continue to remain ON. A stop watch or an analog clock with a second’s
    needle will be useful.



    Operations Procedures



    1. Confirm that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch “ON” and wait 3 seconds.

    2. Repeat the following steps (2a and 2b) procedures quickly five times within 5 seconds.

    2a. Fully depress the accelerator pedal (HARD).

    2b. Fully release the accelerator pedal.

    3. Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for approx. 10 seconds until the CEL starts blinking.

    4. Fully release the accelerator pedal (while the CEL is still blinking)

    5. Wait about 10 second.

    6. Fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for more than 10 seconds.

    7. Fully release the accelerator pedal (The CEL light will continue to blink).

    8. Turn ignition switch to “OFF” position and now you can start the car. The CEL light should be gone.

    If the CEL light continues to remain ON, repeat the above steps. Timing is EXTREMELY critical to resetting the ECU.

    Accelerator Pedal Release Position Learning



    Operation Procedure



    1. Make sure that the accelerator pedal is fully released.

    2. Turn ignition switch “ON” and wait at least 2 seconds.

    3. Turn ignition switch “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds.

    4. Turn ignition switch “ON” and wait at least 2 seconds.

    5. Turn ignition switch “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds.



    Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning



    Operation Procedures



    1. Make sure that accelerator pedal is fully released.

    2. Turn ignition switch is “ON”.

    3. Turn ignition switch is “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds.

    Make sure that the throttle valve moves during above 10 seconds by confirming the operating sound.



    Idle Air Volume Learning (Throttle Position Learning)



    It is better to count the time accurately with a clock.



    Operation Procedures



    1. Perform “Accelerator Pedal Released Position Learning”.

    2. Perform “Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning”.

    3. Start engine and warm it up to normal operating temperature.

    4. Turn ignition switch “OFF” and wait at least 10 seconds.

    5. Conform that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch “ON” and wait 3 seconds.

    6. Repeat the following (steps 7a, 7b) procedures quickly five times within 5 seconds.

    7a. Fully depress the accelerator pedal (HARD)

    7b. Fully release the accelerator pedal.

    8. Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for
    approx. 20 seconds until the Check Engine Light (CEL) stops blinking
    and turned ON.

    9. Fully release the accelerator pedal within 3 seconds after the CEL is ON.

    10. Start engine and let it idle.

    11. Wait 20 seconds.

    12. Rev up the engine two or three times and make sure the idle speed and ignition timing are within the specifications.

    ECU Reset



    The Easy Method:



    After experimenting with different timing, and reading posts by other
    members, I've come up with a condensed method of doing this reset. This
    method works EVERY time, even w/o a stopwatch. I've used this method
    successfully a dozen times, or so, now w/o a watch. After a few times,
    you won't need a watch or instructions. You'll get so darn good at it,
    you'll find yourself doing it while waiting at a traffic light.



    Timing is not as critical with this method...no stop watch needed. Just
    count in your head...one-one thousand, two-one thousand, etc, or use
    stop watch. The most critical step is step #3....wait 10 sec, instead
    of 7.



    1. Ignition "ON", count to 3.

    2. Depress/Release pedal 5 times...hard and fast.

    3. Count to 10 (not 7!) and fully depress pedal

    4. Count to 12 (SES should be blinking), release pedal

    5. Count to 10, depress pedal

    6. Count to 10, release pedal.

    7. Turn off ignition, then start engine. Done!

Well, to get it in gear, you can do a few things. The first being press the clutch in and run it through all of the gears without applying throttle and then try reverse again. You can also let off the clutch half way and slightly pull the shifter in to reverse. As you let off, it'll eventually pop right in to gear.

    The solution is to reset the ambient idle setting




    This is easily
    done … all you need is a piece of wire (like a straightened glider clip) and a
    screwdriver.






    When facing
    the engine with the bonnet up you will see a little black box on the top of the
    passenger side wheel arch, with the words "DIAGNOSIS" embossed on it.
    Open it up by pushing on the top of the side clip. There will be a number of
    cells inside, some with terminal points. The lid of the box contains the key to
    these cells. When you insert one end of your wire into the TEN cell and the other in the GND cell, it causes the ECU to be
    bypassed and the ambient idle setting will be used.






    Follow the
    black air intake tube which runs in front of the engine block to where it meets
    the intake plenum on the driver's side of the engine - that’s the throttle
    body. On the top left side of the throttle body you will see a small raised
    cylindrical section, sometimes with a black plastic covering, which contains a
    large Phillips head-topped screw. This is the idle adjustment screw. It turns
    anti-clockwise to increase the ambient idle speed.






    So now here is the procedure.

    1) Make sure that the engine is warm, but not hot.

    2) Turn off all electrical items (fan, radio and lights)

    3) Start the car and after it settles into a regular idle notice where the
    needle is on the tachometer. It should be just over the graduation mark below
    the "1". (around 850/900 rpm)

    4) Bridge the TEN and GND cells

    5) You should notice the idle speed change after a few seconds.

    6) Have a look at the tachometer. If the ambient idle speed moved then you have
    discovered the problem.

    7) Slowly turn the idle screw until the revs come up to just over the graduation
    mark on the tachometer.

    8) Do this slowly, as there is a slight lag in screwing and response.

    9) If the radiator fans come on during the process then stop adjusting and wait
    for it to go off.

    10) When you have it idling where you think it should be remove the bridging
    wire. In a few seconds the ECU idle setting will kick in. If the engine remains
    at the same rpm then you have matched the ambient idle to the ECU setting.

    11) If not, then replace the bridge and adjust the idle screw,

    12) Repeat steps 10 and 11 until the idle speeds are matched.

1982 mazda 929 MV motor, idles & runs perfect motor is spot on but! it won't stop surging when driven in forward gears 1,2 &3. Have replaced points/distributor/coil/fuel pump/filter but still it...


Sounds like the ECU is struggling to maintain a constant speed when the throttle is open on cretain spots. Does this vehicle have a TPS (throttle position sensor)? If it does then it probably needs to be put on a scope and properly adjusted for continuity. Or could be that some other factory settings have been tampered with on some smog components. Either case, its most likely your air/fuel ratio.
