No I don't. What's the best way to find those out?
Mazda Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 4 months ago
You can have them checked at your local parts store for free. Then write them down and let me know what they are. Thanks

Most of the codes had to do with the oxygen sensor, with one being for the gas cap. The thing is my mechanic already changed the oxygen sensor. I also tried something from youtube where I disconnected and reconnected the battery, then let the car run in park for 20 minutes, then another 15 minutes with the A/C blowing, which was supposed to let the car relearn things. It seemed to make the stalling a little better, but then the acceleration is much worse. I think it's some kind of computer issue?
