Question about 2004 Mazda 3
I recently was told that the intake manifold for my 2004 Mazda 3i 2.0L engine needs replaced! The car has 47,000 miles on it. Regardless of my dismay and disappointment, I have to get it fixed! The dealer gave me the part number of LF62 13 100J. However, I cannot locate the part on the Internet. If you can help, I would greatly appreciate it!

I have had the same problem at almost exaclty the same milage. 2004 Mazda 3 3 door hatchback (5 door sedan). I was told by the service manager that there is a valve in the manifold that fails and starts flapping, sounded just like a collapsed lifter. I think this should be covered under warranty. If not the mfg warranty the emissions? .. good luck.

As a mazda tech I have encountered this problem and what causes it is a failed vacuum diaphram on the intake and the diaphram is not a replacable part and only comes with the intake. I would have the intake replaced because this "mix" door could cause the car to stall out. The dealer will want to charge you around 3-4.5 hours. It is a difficult job due to the starter having to come off and the " hidden bolts.
