Ok got the check engine light, went to autozone today. 2 codes came up: P2177 and P2179 They aren't even listed in the CEL codes on the mazda6tech site. On the scanner it said something about idle. I told the guy I have CAI and it said those codes are normal b/c of that. Am I okay here lol help?

If you search for the P2177 code here, you'll see that it's a new version of the same ol' too lean code associated with your intake. As for the P2179, that one I'm not sure on but I bet its related. What was the message associated with the code?

I'd say they're both due to the CAI. What kind of intake is it anyway?

Its Injen intake and i know i will get cel with it....

But i just want to make sure that P2179 is nothing to worry about :hoho:

I had a injen cai installed too. The first thing I ask the mechanic is "Can you install a CAI that will not result in the engine light coming on?". He said "Yes".

I drove the car for a week with no engine light and then it came on. I figured it was do to the air/fuel thingy. I think I am going to purchase that device from cp-e ( http://www.cp-e.com/2006.html) that will fix the code and adjust the air/fuel ratio.

I also noticed that the exhaust build up on the muffler increased too.

So i guess nothing to worry about

Yeah same here also the guy said if you want you can get it re-flashed so it never comes on again by the mazda dealership. Is this true?
