Question about Mazda 2004 Mazda3
Has aftermarket cork sport intake. Old manifold was destroyed by spouse with reciprocating saw :( Mechanic says intake is the cause of check engine light staying on, because the MAF sensor is getting tripped. I don't have the code is on the service receipt, which I conveniently left at home Suspicions are airflow leaks. I haven't gone back to the mechanic this time since every time I get my car back something else breaks--and he seems overwhelmed at the moment. I really don't want to sift through another junk yard for intake parts.... Although I also don't want to keep wasting gas. All the get up and go in the throttle got up and went. Insights? Opinions?

Unfortunately Mazda didn't have the best transaxles out there. First you have to find out what the code is. If the shift solenoid acts up, it will turn the "check engine" light on and well as the AT light. Take it to a shop that is able to scan the codes and let you know what it is. If it's a shift solenoid code, in which that's what I'm expecting, check all the connections to the trans. at the plugs. Look for any frayed wires, burnt or dirty plugs, and any pins that may have lost contact with the sensors on the trans. If all of them look good, take it to a trans. shop for further tests.

I wouldn't replace the plugs, just yet. This sounds like the vent solenoid. They are usually around the fuel tank and sometimes located on the charcoal canister, Which I believe is where yours is. Test it with 12 volts it should click. if it doesn't then replace this. On newer cars like yours, when the vent or purge solenoids malfunction, they will pop an 02 code. If the solenoid clicks then check the wires right at the plug . they tend to break there. And the gasket your looking for is the intake manifold gasket. And looking for the solenoid, look under the emissions and EVAP systems.
