Problem Description

Due to a software error, the powertrain control module (PCM) may operate improperly when transitioning from cylinder deactivation to full cylinder activation modes. As a result, an intake valve rocker arm may come out of position and make contact with internal engine parts. This may cause the engine to stall in motion without the ability to be restarted, increasing the risk of an accident.

The Mazda 6 models affected by this recall were manufactured between 26 March 2018 and 22 April 2019.

Mazda recall code: AK038A

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Mazda dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish fully comprehensive vehicle check, with more than 80 data points about the history of the car, then we suggest going to HPI-Check, which provides information on a specific vehicle using also the vehicle registration number.

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.

This notification is purely informative for the vehicle type you have selected. As these deficiencies often relate to specific components (engine type, bodywork, equipment), the recall may not apply to all vehicles of this type.
