Mazda 6 cold air problem

I put a short ram cold air intake on my car and when i start it up the idle is not right it sounds like it has an aftermarket cam in it but it doesn't. Check engine light came on and it gave me 6 codes they are P2177, P2096, P0137, P2187, P2097, and P0113. I took the cold air back off and it runs fine now but im waiting to figure out what is wrong with it before i put it back on.

Did you have a air flow sensor on the factory air intake you removed?
if so you will need this part connected to your ram pod outher wise the car wont run properly

    this may be a stupid comment but are you shore you had the air flow sensor plugged in as it sounds a little odd that changing a filter would cause this problem then changing it back rectified the problem dosn't add up

04 mazda 6 lean condition

sounds like you have a vacuum leak. It is sucking in extra air from somewhere. possibly the intake manifold gaskets. The extra air coming in fools the computer / o2 sensors to believe it has a lean mixture then it will try to compensate for the lean mixture and add more fuel.

Don't waste your time. Have the intake manifold gaskets (upper and lower) replaced. Check all vacuum lines for leaks. Clamp all vacuum hose connections.
Do NOT replace any sensors unless the computer codes indicate.

without seeing where you are taling about im guessing it to be noise from air going past the idle ait solenoid at the throttle body, since it will be open farther when cold. if that doesnt make sense, try explaining hte noise a little better. i really dont think its anything to worry abotu if it only does it when cold.

Idle s 2300rpm when cold, then revs between 1500-2000, while..

maybe vacuum leak or intake manifold leak. sounds like components are doing there job adjusting to air intake, matching the amount of air brought in with the amount of fuel that it would demand to produce correct emmission quality. check this out. you can use carb cleaner to spray around your throttlebody and intake manifold and if the engine idle fluxuates you have a leak.
