Customer Question

Hi, Drew. 2000 Mazda Protege DX 1.6 DOHC. Idles normal but falls on its face when giving gas. Had p0106&p0108, also sec O2 sensor code. Replaced erg boost sensor, cleaned all erg ports(lines, intake, valve). Replaced sec O2 sensor also. No CEL at this time but car stumbles badly. Fuel smelled stale so drained and refilled. Data list showing high long term fuel trim(27%)

Hello, I'm Chris. Thanks for seeking us for help.

With the current information. Can you clean the air fuel sensor and monitor the fuel pressure. Next can you check for vacuum leaks? Let me know these results.

You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.

Thanks Chris
