SOURCE: the car ran fine yesterday. i changed the valve

First thing I'd do is check if everything was connected, vacuum lines, fuel lines, connectors, etc. If all good, check the fuses and fuel pump relay. My guess would be the vac line to the fuel pressure regulator.

Code PO660 has come up. How do you fix it

code p 0660 refers to intake manifold tuning valve ,bank 1--circuit open===causes --wiring--intake manifold tuning valve
The fix will be a replace valve
the problem is to find it's location but if you talk with Mazda spares or service department , they should show you where it is located
a workshop manual would be a help as well

How to remove/replace the Valve Cover Gaskets on a New Beetle car?

Replace the valve cover gasket if the valve cover gaskets are leaking or if they're worn. The procedure is as follows:--
1) First of all let the motor cool down if the car was recently driven. Then remove the air intake boot.The air intake boot ios attached to the engine's throttle body.
2) Carefully disconnect the throttle cable , hoses and electrical connectors located on the upper intake manifold.
3) Then disconnect the hard pipe that is connected to the EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve.
4) The EGR valve is located beneath the upper intake manifold.
5) Then remove the bolts from both the upper intake manifold and the manifold support bracket.
6) Now the upper intake main fold and lower intake manifold both have got loose as you removed the nut.
7) After that remove the upper intake manifold from the lower intake manifold. Carefully place clean rags over the intake runners to prevent anything from falling into the intake system.
8) Then you will have to disconnect the crank case breather valve on the valve cover.
9) Then remove the bolts from the valve cover and remove the reinforcing straps.
10) Then remove the camshaft belt cover and the dust shield from the back of the camshaft sprocket.
11) Now carefully remove the valve cover. Properly clean the old gasket material with gasket remover.
12) You can install a new gasket in the reverse procedure of removal.

This will help. good luck.

Engine runs rough and want to die when i put it in gear or when slowing at an intersection some times it runs perfect but not for long i changed sending unit , filter , and complete tune up. sometimes...

This condition can be caused by a sludged up idle speed control valve and a dirty throttle valve, do the following procedure to correct this, if it still doesn't repair the problem have the idle speed control system tested by the dealer.

Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Crank and start but wont stay on

bad ignition,air flow sensor that keeps leaning out the mix and it stalls,bad iac idle control motor,start with a good tune up.cap rotor,wires plugs air filter and clean the throttle body.some honda cars have bad egr valves and the intake manifold has to come apart because it is plugged up inside with carbon.
