Default error p2177 with K&M filter

Hey all,

I installed a k&M filer and now I'm getting the P2177 error. I tried to clean my MAS and the CEL went out for about a day and not its back on. Am I doomed to use a stock air filter or is there something else I can do? I have an 05 6s wagon 3.0L

Is that fuel system to lean? Our cars tend to do that with aftermarket filters. If its actually throwing a CEL and you have an aftermarket intake you should look into getting an air straightener.

Can you let me know what an air straightener is. I have a stock air intake system.

It's for intakes with a bigger than stock size to reduce the airflow and essentially bring the inside diameter back down to stock. Not useful on a stock intake.

So I'm guessing that I should go back to the stock air filter unless I want to do more mods? Also, just a note, when I put in the K&M it didnt fit really tight into the air box.

Default Re: error p2177 with K&M filter

Did you mean K&N?
From what you said on the last post,I assume its not a CAI.If that's the case,no need for an air straightener.I think the problem is that the filter isn't fitting properly in the air box,and is letting too much air in.I just find a bit weird that a K&N would do this

Maybe it's upside down or you got one made for a different year or engine size etc.

yes it's a K&N, I hate small keyboards. So now for the stupid question: The pleats go down? and the flat side faces up? If I have it in upside down, I'm going to feel REALLY stupid.

I love my Mazda 6. I drove it off the lot with 6 miles on it and it has 168k. I have had very little issues with it. This is the FIRST time I have received an CEL code that wasn't the gas cap. And it's probably because I changed something.

If you are so unhappy with yours; why are you on this forum?

Don't listen to that clown, he's just pissed that his mazda died out on him (something oil related)
Anyways if you have the right sized filter it should fit snugly into the box!
I'm not sure what way is up and which is down though, since I have a CAI
So if your filter is moving around in the box that's probably your problem!
