  1. 2013 Skyactiv 6AT transmission fluid change

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv How-To Guides
    Thanks to Boyl0121 for this helpful thread regarding a 2012 Skyactiv tranny fluid change. http://mazda3revolution.com/forums/2010-2013-mazda-3-skyactiv-how-guides/19145-2012-skyactiv-6at-transmission-fluid-change.html I did the fluid change on my 2013 last weekend and it was simple! I found...
  2. 6AT Questions

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Just curious to see if this is "normal" trans behavior on the 2014 6AT with 2.0L: 1 - In low throttle the trans seems to shift with a slight delay especially from 1st to 2nd gear. Hard to explain the "delay" but it's not an instant crisp shift but more of a pause then shift. 2 - Sometimes the...
  3. 6AT - Shift Questions

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I got the 2.0L with the automatic 6 speed. When under light acceleration and the trans is shifting from 1st gear to 2nd gear, I notice a slight hesitation when it shifts from 1st to 2nd. The same happens from 2-3, 3-4, etc. Is this "normal" behavior for this trans? I am use to the 2008 Mazda3...
  4. 6AT shift delays.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I have searched and searched for this info, but have not found anything. Humour me :) So, I was wondering what a typical 'shift delay' is on the 6AT that comes on the 2014 3 GT. I have not driven many autos, just my old '99 Corolla, our '05 Vibe, an '00 Escort ZX2 and, briefly, an Audi with...
  5. Pictures of the 6AT's dipstick location

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I was happy to see that Mazda included a dipstick on the automatic...it's just not terribly convenient to get to. It's a little grey thing held in with a 10mm bolt. Using several extensions, one can get to it from the top, by going in between the upper radiator hose and the airbox. I...
  6. Skyactiv 6AT Tranny Fluid Change.

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Good day, Has anyone here changed their Tranny fluid on their skyactiv AT yet? If so, was it easy? How many Liters of tranny fluid did you fill in? Did you changed any filter? Did you changed the Drain plug gasket? (Of course lol). How did you fill it in and what did you use for your...
  7. 2012 Sky 6AT In the Service Shop..

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hey all, long time no post. Used to have a white '12 MT iTouring, traded for a '12 AT GT. Long story short, wife still wasn't comfortable driving it after ~six months, was able to refinance for the same payments.. lost some money in those six months but always keep your wife happy. Driving...
  8. skyactiv 6at fluid syphon out

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv How-To Guides
    I have seen the good write up about a drain and fill for the 6AT. I recently did a syphon out job, and got 3.5 qts out. Removing the air filter box is simple, and opens up all kind of room to work in. Just take the bolt in dip stick out, and inset an approx. 10 ft piecs of 1/4" OD air...
  9. 2012 Skyactiv 6AT Transmission Fluid change.

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv How-To Guides
    I have not seen any write up for the Skyactiv Auto tranny fluid change and with all the rumors about this being a sealed transmission and what not I figured I would post up a couple pictures ( I have a 2012). I also took the pan off (which was a PITA) so that I could clean off the magnet and...
