LOCATIONS OF IAC VALVE, EGR, AND PCV

2000 Mazda MPV

Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Mazda MPV 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive 83,401 miles

Can you provide a diagram or way for me to see the locations of these valves? They have never been replaced or serviced. When the van is cold and I start it, sometimes there is a loud hum coming from the air cleaner housing, but it warms up pretty well. When I get to the first stop or two, the engine idles a little rough. However, when the van is warmed up, it runs perfectly. Help!

Hello –

If you do need to get back with me please let me know if your model is a DX, ES, or LX. Also is your engine size the 2.5L?

I have provided the info I believe you need. For the hum…..it may be your IAC. There is a TSB out on this….I have attached that info and other info on the IAC.

Next the PCV….the location and check of that…….it should be inspected every 60,000 miles. Me, I would change it as they are not that much…..preventive maintenance I call it.

EGR…..I have attached a check for it…..the other check you need test equipment and the information on it.

Then some other sensor info

Thanks for the donation

Please let us know if what the final fix was for your car so we can better assist others. Thanks!
