66 Coolent thermostat condition- low operating temperature

 

Proberly cause:

661 low coolent level

662 open or shor circuit condition

663 faulty ect censor

Expert:  Drew replied 5 years ago.

Here is the diagnosis test for code P0661 and P0662. They are not related to the coolant or sensor.

 

Perform each diagnosis test to determine what is the root cause for your concern.

 

I have seen several faulty intake manifold runner control solenoids. (VIS solenoid)

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

Thanks

Drew

i do not understand what u want me to do u r not clear take the car back to auto zone
Expert:  Drew replied 5 years ago.

If you cannot perform the diagnosis test that I gave you, you will have to take it to a Mazda dealer or shop to have it diagnosed.

If you want to replace the parts that are in question from the fault codes, then go to a Mazda dealer parts department, purchase them and install them yourself.

 

Here is a diagram of the solenoid location. They are called the VIS control solenoid and variable tumbler control solenoid. Replace both these solenoids and clear your codes.

 

 

Please let me know if you have any additional question.

Thanks

Drew
