Will an obd II reader come out with codes for problems even if the check engine light isn't on?


I think you have a defective fuel pump pressure check valve here. If you don't have a check engine light on you will not have any codes.

Check engine light doesnt go out all belts changed still comes on


what kind of vehicle? what year? cause for about $40. or so, you can goto an auto parts store and get the OBD reader which conects to the computer under the dash in most cars and trucks anything prior to 1986 is OBD 1 anything AFTER SHOULD BE obd2 CHECK THE CODE to see what it tells you is wrong, that way you will know to be able to repair it. this will save you quite a bit of money to do it yourself then to be paying hourly rates to have a mechanic troubleshoot it all day. once you find out what code it is giving you for the check engine light, and get it repaired, you can use the OBD reader to reset the light.

2001 mazda 626 es v6 oxygen sensor flamed up and caught fire


sulfur smell is excess fuel getting burned in the cat. convertor.

The o2 sensor itself may be bad... causing the ECM to get bad readings and send extra fuel that isnt burned during ignition.

Check the engine codes with an OBD reader, (even if the CEL is not lit) because the bulb may be out or missing.

If you get codes, ask the parts store or re-post here, and I can help you further.

Missing and cutting out


A fault code reader would be a huge help in diagnosing general problems. It plugs in under left side dash and gives specific failure codes (this is what mechanics use).
You can buy an OBD-I code reader (for cars before 96) online for $79.95 or a OBD-II which reads all cars from 1996 on. It will also reset faults or engine trouble lights.

You may want to check your fuel pressure with a gauge.

or do a simple Fuel pump test:
  1. remove the gas cap.
  2. have one person listen in the gas tank at the gas cap opening.
  3. the other person turns the ignition switch to the ON position ONLY (so the dash lights come on.) Do NOT crank or start up the engine.
  4. As soon as the ignition key is turned to the ON position, The person at the gas tank should hear the fuel pump run for TWO SECONDS and then it should STOP.
If it does NOT run for the 2 seconds every time, the fault is either the fuel pump or fuel pump relay
