  1. Squeaking while idling and accelerating.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    It’s a very high pitched squeak while idling and driving. I narrowed the noise to a belt that’s almost under the windshield about 6” in front. The car has 100,100 km on it. Belt hasn’t been changed Or any tensioners. Wondering what I could do to fix this issue.
  2. Mazda Axela 2007 2.0 Ratling Noise when Accelerating

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    When accelerating, There is a ratling loise coming from the engine bay somewhere and i cant seem to pin point the exact location. I thought it could be the belts maybe? or the pulleys? I videoed a short clip of the engine running at idle but my post count is too low to post a youtube link...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hi everyone, I'm a bit worried about a problem my new Mazda 3 (2.2 150CV) showed the first day i drove it. When accelerating a mechanical noise (or something like that) is heard near to the right side of the engine... Has anyone ever had or known any problem like this...? The car is...
  4. 3 unknown clicks from roof heard upon starting vehicle and accelerating

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So I have a 15' iSport Hatch and every time I start the car and begin to accelerate three clicks can be heard which seem to come from the roof of the car. At first it sounded like twigs falling on my car from trees but now I've noticed that it always occurs after the car is turned on and moves...
  5. Engine Noise when Accelerating in 3rd (video) - 2014 s Touring 2.5 Liter Hatch

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Started getting a strange noise the last few days, it only happens around 35 to 45 MPH. It happens exactly when I hit the peddle, and it sounds like a loose washer ratteling around, or coffee beans grinding. I uploaded a video on YouTube, the background noise makes it hard to hear but it's...
  6. RPMs do not lower when braking causing acceleration issues after braking

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    We purchased a 2014 Mazda 3 automatic three weeks ago. Since that time, we have had issues with accelerating / decelerating. When the brakes are applied, the car continues to have high RPMs. After releasing the brake and attempting to accelerate again, the car will not accelerate until the RPMs...
  7. Strange sound when accelerating

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    My 2011 Mazda3 starting making this weird noise when accelerating at low RPM and seems to stop once it kicks into a higher gear. I don't really know how to describe the sound other than it sounds like a fan or something spinning with something stuck in it or something. It starts off low, gets...
  8. Wicked wheel hop while accelerating over minor hole

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Pulling out onto a busy street yesterday, I gave it a decent amount of gas out of the turn and BOOM- I drove over a minor hole at high RPM while accelerating (6-spd auto)... The whole car jerked pretty bad once the right front wheel made traction out of the bump (felt like a much bigger hole...

    Hi Everyone, New to the forum -- I've tried to find answers to my question by Googling, etc., but was hoping maybe to find some extra insight on here... the info I've found so far hasn't exactly helped much. I just recently got a "new" slightly used 2011 Mazda 3 itouring (shift-able...
