Question about 1999 Mazda 626
My car does not want to start as soon as it warms up. I noticed that the check engine light would come on before this happened, but I would get a code of warming, catalytic converter, I assumed it was an 02 sensor. The car is not running and I canno hear the fuel pump when i turn the key (not starting the car), so I am assuming it's my fuel pump. However, I cannot find where the shrader valve is to check to see if this is indeed the problem. Does anyone know where the shrader valve is located on a 2001 mazda 626 or do I need to check the fuel line?
There is no shrader valve on the 626 u need to pull the plug on the top of the filter but your problem sounds like a main relay under dash

put a small amount of fuel in the intake near the throttle plate then crank and see if it fires, if it does then it's a fuel problem, if it does not fire then pull a plug wire and put a philips head screw driver into the plug wire hold it 1/4 inch away from a good ground then have someone crank it over, you should see spark and it should be blue, if not then you have a ignition problem a bad coil or cam sensor but need to know what you found out on the two tests I told you first to give you a direction to go.

SOURCE: Check Engine light code 1506
this code indicates under-speed error has ocurred.
sets when PCM detects idle speed is 100 RPM lowerthan expected for 14 sec while break pedal depressedand steering wheel is straight ahead.
possible causes: IAC valve failure,intake leak,throttle body failure,opens or shorts in wiring between IAC and PCM.

The front O2 sensor is located at the bottom of the heat shield just before you get to the exhaust. It has a wire connected to it. You will have access to this from the top of the car.You may need a O2 sensor tool that you can borrow from most major auto parts retailer. Disconnect the battery first then unplug the sensor. Using the O2 socket remove the sensor. The sensor should come with a packet of anti seize, apply it to the threads and install it. Plug the sensor back up and connect the battery and you should be done. Good luck.
