If the check engine light is blinking, you should get it looked at before making any long trips. It probably would be a good idea to have the car scanned to find out what the fault is. One common reason for the light to come on is a loose gas cap.

My Mazda5 "Check Engine" light is on. Fault code


FOR CODE P2106 (INTERNAL ENGINE OFF TIMER PERFORMANCE) THE FLOW CHART WILL LEAD YOU TO BELIEVE ITS THE PCM. THIS WILL PROBABLY NOT FIX IT. FIRST CHECK TO SEE IF NON FACTORY SPARK PLUGS HAVE BEEN INSTALLED. IF THEY HAVE THIS IS MOST LIKELY THE CAUSE.THEY WILL PRODUCE INTERFERENCE THRU THE COIL WIRING AND CAUSE THE PCM TO THINK THERE IS A PROBLEM. SIMPLY PUT FACTORY PLUGS BACK IN ENGINE AND CLEAR CODES.PROBLEM SHOULD BE GONE.I HAVE BEEN THRU THIS. SID CODESPOTI (SERVICE MANAGER)STOKES MAZDA, CHARLESTON,SC

My car ran low on oil(my own fault in not checking it) no leaks at all.. now it runs REALLY rough @ idle and while driving. I did put in 2 qts of oil, thought it would "fix" the problem... it...


Hi, if your oil pressure light was not on more than a few seconds, the engine should not be damaged. If it was on longer than that, you may have damage. Running rough is not necessarily related, so you may want to check the items in my tips for rough idle. If you're not handy, you could still manage some of the basic inspection steps.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r7427423-fix_poor_idle_high_idle_stalling_fuel . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Even after your car's problem is fixed, the 96s (engine code M104) are notorious for taking an unusually long time to reset the "all clear" in their OBD (on board diagnostic) system. I had to get three 30-day exemptions from the TN agency's top mechanical advisor, who was well aware of this. The car has to drive a crazy drive cycle, which you can find by googling including the OBD2 and "M104 drive cycle" and I will try to find and post it here. As for fixing the original light, go to Autozone or any chain auto parts store, they'll check and reset the light for ya FREE; write down the code and, if necessary, get the prob fixed. Sometimes it's just a loose gas cap, or an intermittent fault that'll not repeat, if you're lucky.
