  1. Owner's manual case

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    My 2017 Mazda6 GX 6mt (~ US "Sport" trim) - $ 22,800 Cdn in Feb 2017 - has vinyl/plastic steering wheel rim... but 4 heated seats, auto-wipers, backup camera, (I think) heated windshield washer nozzles, heated and lit (turn-indicator) side mirrors. Cdn market is one of the...
  2. 40,000 Miles in a year, car is still like day one! What am I missing?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Scuddog, your having a 2018 2.5 6MT you have I guess the same powertrain as in my 2017 Mazda6 Sport 6mt. No cyl disabling, 184 hp / 185 ft lbs torque at 3250 rpm? Or maybe 1 more hp and a wee bit more torque at about 4000 rpm or so? How do you like your car for general urge, for shifting...
  3. Owner's manual case

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    You mean like the attached case (which did show on the Mazda Australia website some years ago)?. No, I did not receive one with my documentation for my Mazda6 (2017) here in Canada. Disappointed. Still would like to get one of these...
  4. Felt transmission hard shift for 1st time. Should I be concerned?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    They intended that it NOT be a regular service item. I personally am not in that school of thought. Having said this, there undoubtedly is a bunch of planning to do both to just check the ATF... and/or also to go ahead and change it and end up with the correct level (particularly if you...
  5. Felt transmission hard shift for 1st time. Should I be concerned?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    One caveat: IF this is the automatic transmission which is giving a problem (and credible evidence above suggests that maybe it is not).... The thing worth noting (and not All would agree with me) - at 95,000 miles I personally would not i) flush the transmission; ii) nor would I change filter...
  6. HVAC Heat having troubles

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    Automated climate control, of course, has been around forever... and it has been perfected. So Mazda should not have any problem getting it right. Having said this, at one time I really wanted ACC... but I am not so fussed about it at this point. My Mazda6 Sport (2017) has manual A/C - and...
  7. Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter change

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    I think many sources put optimal ATF temp at 185F.
  8. Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter change

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    I have mentioned that for me I would consider it a mistake to remove the OEM engine coolant-to-ATF cooler in place of an aerial style ATF cooler 'cuz it removes the early heat-up function that the OEM style cooler provides. BUT, I would add the aerial style cooler for three seasons of the year...
  9. Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter change

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    FYI... TSB on ATF filling. https://www.rx8club.com/attachments/general-automotive-49/193505d1362869611-s-k-y-bulletins-atf-fz-required-skyactiv-drive-6-speed-automatic-transaxle.pdf They appear to intimate that the engine coolant-cooled ATF heat exchanger is not typically removed from the side...
  10. Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter change

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    Thx... Also, wondering where you got that additional centre console mounted gauge arrangement? Re the in-line atf filter - I have to say I don't like those because they have to be coarse enough to not easily plug off. I really subscribe to the use of very tight filter media (i.e. high degree of...

    MazdaSuper3, do you mind me asking where you bought that adapter?
  12. Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter change

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    MazdaSuper3 - it appears to me that the use of that element you bought would mean that you would cease to use the stock engine coolant-cooled ATF cooler arrangement in favour of a more normal auxiliary air to oil cooler. Now bear in mind that for a conventional ATF cooling arrangement there is...
  13. crackles and pops?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    I have a 2017 Mazda6... I should get the alphanumeric label details from it... and maybe someone can help me decipher. I think the 2017 Mazda3 SkyActiv-G 2.5 is identical to my 2.5....
  14. crackles and pops?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Can someone explain "readable ECU"? Are there two different ECU's in the "3" for the various SkyActiv years? Nippon Denso, Mitsubishi, or other ? Are they in some fundamental way different vis à vis tuning?

  16. HVAC Heat having troubles

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    With automated climate control three parameters are controlled: air temp, fan speed, and airflow position (dashboard vents versus floor + a bit of defrost vents). The further the in-car temp is (i.e. below) from the set-point temp, the higher the fan speed and the hotter the air temp out the...

    You obviously are really frustrated. I'm sorry to hear this. I know you have that cylinder deactivation issue; you have this HVAC temp issue. Many other issues too?
  19. Torquing the Axle Nut

    2004-2009 Mazda3 How-To Guides
    To the OP... excellent info. Are Torque Mulipliers expensive? Re the ARP magic sauce.... while I have no doubts that ARP is credible re torquing-up rodbolts, etc. the whole matter of cleanliness, lubed or not, what kind of lubricant, etc. is a complicated subject.... and big differences in...
