Question about Mazda Cars & Trucks
Nothing yet, just wanna replace the engine
You would need a lot of stuff. I will not say that it is impossible, but you need the complete engine, harness, PCM, and maybe the BCM. I think you will meet a lot of unforeseen problems. The BCM is the gateway to the M-MDS diagnostic system and it stores the VIN, so if you need to take it to the Mazda dealer later, like to get the PATS (immobilizer) programmed this will all be important stuff.
If your car is an automatic, I would venture to say its a 4 speed. The ~2009 L3 5 speed automatic cars have a separate TCM, mounted on the transmission that the 4 speed cars do not have.
Trust me, its a lot of work. I have a L3 M/T car that I put a L5 in. It was a lot of customizing, although the engine basically bolted right in. I use the stock pcm, but I had to change intake manifolds and mess around with the timing cover. The LF, without VVT, timing cover is short and the L5 had the wrong crank sensor mounting. I had to plug an oil passage and rig a shutter valve actuator because the sensors were different.

SOURCE: Cam position sensor error.
It's not enough only rebuild yours engine !!!
After new camshaft position sensor instalation and timing perfectly alignment you must scan the engine control computer and erase these error, actually all errors stocked in memory. The best scantool is VAS device used by VW-Audi dealers, VAG-COM by RossTech (cable + software 704.014, 805.01, ... on CD), or also Bosch KTS 540, 570, 670, ...
RESET = erase errors from the engine control computer memory !
Yours engine control computer don't understand if you only replace damaged sensors with new others! Errors still remains in memory affect engine runing!

Hi, The biggest fuse to be replaced is a 30amp. I don't know what you have that is that big. Could be a relay you have. Usually under the steering wheel and left. Good luck.
