I have a 2005 Mazda 3 about a year ago i hit a big puddle actually stopped my car from moving i had the engine checked no problems no hydro locking what so ever. but since then when ever i happen to turn my a/c on it runs ok when im driving the car but when i come to a stop or in traffic with out constant moving the rpms seem to drop and car shutts off so i took it to Mazda and they told me it was my intake manifold so i replaced it but still have the problem does anyone know what could be wrong. thanks

The short answer is maybe. The actual long block part of the engine is used in 2002 - 2005 models, but there are 3 or 4 versions. If you are wanting to swap out a complete engine from one year to the other, I doubt it. Most of the parts will probably work, but not all. One big factor is wiring harness hookups. The problem with swapping engines today compared to 25 yrs ago is now each year has to beat the fuel economy and emissions of the year before. So each year is a little different.
Sounds like the Valve Guides are **** out oil is seeping down valve stems and burning in the cylinders. Some times STP oil treatment can slow the oil down because of its thickness. I have put about a cup of dexron2 transmission fluid in my oil to swell up the O-ring seal on the valve stem to stop this problem and a cup will not hurt anything. Like i have put STP in Automatic Transmissions to correct leaky valve body problem work like a charm.Can give you 3 to 5 more years of life to a transmission.
possibly the pcv but check if your cars exhaust smoke is blueish or white in color if it does and your car doesnt have an oil leak then sure its burning engine oil along with fuel, the piston rings is defective, since you replaced engine oil the additive that the owner has put with the oil to prevent blowby is gone thats why it starts burning oil.....
Look's like you have kept up with your car, but if engine light came on you need to have engine diag. done to find out what's going on, it's on because engine computer pick up a bad signal from one of your sensor, have it check out.Good luck.
I agree with "emissionwiz". What probably happened was you hydrostatic-ally locked your engine. What happens is when you went through that puddle water got sucked into the intake and into the engine. Water being a liquid cannot be compressed and stalled the engine and most likely bent some internal components. If you can hear the starter click but the engine won't turn over you've got a 99% chance its a ruined engine. If you don't want to believe that try turning the engine over by hand (socket on crankshaft), you should be able to turn it, if not it's done for. Good luck and sorry about the misfortune but next time go very slow through puddles.
yes the rotors may only be 6 mo old, but it does not mean they didn't become warped in this little bit of time! try to think back if u had to slam on the brakes at some time to avoid some thing and hitting a big puddle of water and then hitting the brakes hard can warp them easily, i bet if u have them checked u will find they have become warped! ( could also be the quality of parts, it does happen) good luck to u,hope we helped.
