I recently purchased a Cold Air Intake Kit for my Mazda, and I noticed that it did not include a Mass Air Flow Sensor Adapter, and if I'm not mistaken, the MX-6 has a Mass Air Flow Sensor. I believe that I have located the MAF Sensor on my car.
I have searched eBay and other respectable sites, including but not limited to Autozone.com, and am unable to find an adapter for anything except the V-6 version of the MX-6.
The Questions: If the MX-6 listed above does indeed have a MAF Sensor, and no adapter is available for a Cold Air Intake Kit, what can I do? In addition, does the MX-6 even HAVE a MAF Sensor? If it doesn't, then what am I looking at on the OEM Air Intake Tubing coming from the Air Filter Housing?

For 1993 Mazda MX-6 2.0L MFI DOHC 4cyl the OBD Diagnostic Link Connector is located:
Under hood, driver side, upper engine area, passenger side rear
of air filter housing, mounted next to airflow meter connector.
Hope this helps (remember to rate this free answer) .
The MX-3 came with three engine options: a 1.5 L I4 (only found in the Autozam AZ-3), a 1.6 L I4 and a 1.8 L V6. The 1.6 L was available in two versions, an 88 hp (66 kW) SOHC/16-valve B6-ME unit which powered 1992 and 1993 models, or a 106 hp (79 kW) DOHC/16-valve B6-D unit which was found in 1994 and later models. The Japanese market DOHC/16-valve B5-ZE produced 115-120 PS (85-88 kW) (lower powered in automatic versions) and the most powerful DOHC 24-valve V6 K8-DE produced 140 PS (103 kW) at 7,000 rpm (Japan) and 130 hp in North American models. All were available with a 5-speed manual or an optional 4-speed automatic transmission, depending upon the market.
First check your air flow to your intake. To have combustion you gotta have fuel, spark, and air. Also check your MAF (Mass Air Flow Sensor) This is located just before the intake. If its not this, your engine timing may be off.
I don't know if you have a 4 or 6 cylinder engine.
Here are a couple of links to Autozone where you can look at the part and identify it on the top of your engine. "A picture's worth a thousand words". Hope this helps... Good luck!
My '91 626 did the same thing. I tested the throttle position sensor, and it was good so that wasn't it. The other likely culprit is the Idle Speed Control valve, or Idle Air Control valve, which is a $500 part new (more than I paid for the whole car). I pulled one off a 626 at the salvage yard and got it for 3 bucks, put it on (it's an easy DIY, just 4 philips screws holding it to the intake manifold), however I can't be sure that solved the problem, since I haven't run the car much since then. It would seem the most likely cause, tho, and a cheap fix if you go used. Other possibilities: O2 sensor or Mass Air Flow sensor?
