Dead thread revival:I just turned 60k on my 2004 sedan... I decided to pop into AutoZone and pick up a PCV valve. The 1001 costs $5.99 and is an exact fit. (Also, the poppet in the stock PCV - yes, this is the first time I ever changed it - is free floating, just like the aftermarket one.)...[/b]
As I understand it, the 05' is supposed have a different PCV than the 04' DW has.Dead thread revival:
I decided on a whim to grab an Uh-OhZone pn 1001 PCV valve. Verified the information in the catalog and at the counter. The bottom part of it was perfect and did indeed fit. The top part is a stubby little hose bib connection and does not match nor will it fit the clip type hose. At least not on my car.
It's too short and the wrong connection.
God I hope Mazda's Parts counter is open on Columbus day.[/b]
So im a little over 105,000 miles, and my 6 has gone through about 4 quarts of oil in about 1500 miles. Im using the recommended 5w 20 oil. Should i be using something like 10w 30?
I havent noticed any smoke or leaking. I will see some white smoke when i take off the oil cap to put oil in. I occasionally smell burning oil but not very much. But my 6 is burning that oil like its nothin! I cant decide if it would be the PCV valve or not. A lot of people are saying that they have done the replacement PCV valve but it still consumes oil excessively.[/b]
Hey Double. I'm having exactly the same problem! First I'm losing 1 qt of engine oil every 50 miles, and now I'm seeing engine oil in my throttle body plate and around the throttle body. There seems to be oil in my vacuum line as well. I'm reading around and I see people reporting pre-cat/cat failures. Please keep us posted with your findings. Thanks.thanks for posting this! I changed my plugs today and noticed some oil in my throttle body and suspect the PCV so this will help out alot in changing it. I've got an 04 6S Hatch so I'll take some pix of that install and post once I get to the dealer for the part.
Can anyone confirm the correct part num for an 04 6S Hatch?
