Shakes or Wobbles problem
1996 Mazda 626 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 125000 miles
I have a 1996 Mazda 626 that I need to get the emissions done on. The check engine light had been on for quite some time. I took it in to get the codes fixed, and there were two codes, p1506 and p0421. For the p0421 they replaced a leaking front exhaust pipe and both o2 sensors, but said that it could be a bad converter. For the p1506 they replaced the idle air control motor. These repairs were very expensive, apprx. $2000 dollars, but I didn't know what else to do. A day after picking up my car, the check engine light came back on and I went to the auto parts store and had the codes pulled, the p1506 is back (making me think the IAC motor probably did not need to be replaced in the first place) and now there is a p0141. I called the place and they said the converter probably needs replaced which is about another $700. Is there anything I can have them check, or should I just have them replace the converter? Thanks for all your help
Update: Went and bought an actron reader. Intermittently p0136 will register as well. The P0141 always shows up and the p1506 doesn't always show up.
have the same problem?
