MAZDA 3 ROUGH IDLE FIXED

I HAVE AN 05 MAZDA 3 2.0 ROUGH IDLE STALLING AT LIGHTS, POOR THROTTLE RESPONSE. ANYWAY I CLEANED THE EGR VALVE DIDNT FIX,
RUN BOTTLE OF SEAFOAM IN TANK DIDNT FIX IT. I HAD A CEL FOR RICH THAN LEAN AND A O2 SENSOR SO CHANGED THE 02 SENSOR AND RESET ECU
STILL DIDNT FIX. I TOOK THE EVAP SOLENOID OUT AND SPRAYED WITH PB BLASTER AND LET IT SIT THEN RESPRAYED, BLEW IT OUT WITH AIR RE-INSTALLED PROBLEM GONE. THROTTLE RESPONSE IS AWESOME AGAIN AND FUEL COMSUMPTION ALOT BETTER. THANKS FOR THE GREAT TIPS ON THIS FORUM, HAS BEEN ALOT OF HELP

Re: MAZDA 3 ROUGH IDLE FIXED

Had the exact same problem. Idle would dip at stops, a couple of times the rpm went so low it almost stalled, when it would do this the check engine light would come on for a split second. Anyway I took out the EVAP SOLENOID which was super easy to remove, sprayed it out with pb, let it sit, and blew it out. Idle is back to normal =] Thanks for the help "JOECO"
