Mazda Repair Questions? Ask Mechanics for Answers ASAP
Hello and thank you for your question,The problem you are describing sound like you may still have a problem with the fuel pressure, are you able to connect a fuel pressure gauge and monitor the fuel pressure from the new pump?
The purge control solenoid should not shut the engine off when you give it fuel. The problem sounds like the new pump may still not be producing enough pressure, have him check the fuel pressure first, normal pressure at idle needs to be 30 to 38 PSI and not drop below 30 PSI. If the pressure checks oky then have him remove the hoses from the solenoid and see if it will now run normal. The code 26 is usually set due to a failing purge control solenoid. In most cases replacing the solenoid will resolve this code.
