2001 mazda 626 can't pass emissions

So I got a Mazda 2001, 626, v6. I can't pass emissions cause my check engine came on for an egr malfunction. I changed it (egr valve). Now When it goes on the computer the test show the valve is not ready. It's been a month and it's still not ready. Now besides that my warm up catalyst bank 1 is coming up on the computer. So now my check engine light comes on and flashes between 40-45mph. (thats were my car start to **** also) So, I was wondering if I change my sensor before the catalst and after, will that solve the problem???

SOURCE: just failed an emissions test due to a fault code

could be a bad o2 sensor, you'd just have to look at the pid data on a scan tool to know for sure. odds are good though its a bad catalytic converter. they all have an 8 year/80,000 mile warranty on them but if its out of warranty they can be quite pricey

SOURCE: engine malfunction

Check for

vacuum leaks on intake manifold,

the air tube between the air filter.

intake manifold vacuum hose.

===
clean throttle plate with Berryman carburator cleaner

SEE sample picture HERE
===

Also remove carbon built up behind the EGR valve and the EGR passage tube.

===

Vacuum leak WILL offset the intended 14.7 to 1 air fuel ratio.

More un-metered air (leaks) will lean out the fuel mixture.

Use small amount of Berryman carb clearer at potential air leak area will help you identify trouble spot.

At idle,just spray and listen for the RPM surge.

The in-rush of carb clearer will increase the RPM on the motor.

Record the problem spot(s) and address it later.

===

EGR carbon built up require 2+ hours to clean from start to finish.

You will need a new EGR base gasket before your start.

Locate and remove the EGR valve after the vehicle is cool down.

Carefully record the connector and vacuum line (for older vehicle) location by drawing an easily to follow diagram.

Remove the EGR valve.

Inspect the location of the carbon built-up inside the valve and the EGR passage tube.

SOAK these areas with WD-40 spary.

You will need a small screwdriver,cloth hanger and lot of newspaper and time to get this cleaning done right.

RE-SOAK the carbon and let it sit for over-night will also help.

One the last round,pass a shop vacuum of the EGR valve and the passage pipe.

Install the new EGR gasket and connectors.

Allow the vehicle to warm up outdoor to burn up any remaining WD-40.


Take it for a test drive.

Sounds like you have low fuel supply or a leak in intake system causing lean codes, check fuek pressure and volume first. Cat converter effeciancy could be caused by the lean codes, purge system sounds like solenoid failure, check for high resistance accross purge vent solenoid.

Does worn out rings cause a Mazda 626 Cronos V6 not to idle


It could but if its that bad you'd be burning a lot of oil and overheating. After changing all the filters and the PCV valve next would be to look into the EGR system. If your EGR hose is clogged it will cause revving and hesitation, uneven idle and often no check engine light. The other thing could be the camshaft position sensor needs replacing. Its typically in the distributor under the cap or hanging on the outside of the distributor. Usually the check engine light will come on if its the camshaft position sensor. Its worthwhile to check for engine codes even if your check engine light isn't on.
