    ~43K on the original fill. It was DARK - and the drain plug had dark (metallic) particles on it too, that wiped off. Just like on our Odyssey's auto trans filler plug, except that filler plug is magnetic. Not good in a manual trans, IMHO. I used Red Line MT-90 for refill. I've used Red Line...

    My 15' mazda 3 came with FL 22 coolant which according to the owners manual is supposed to be good for 10 years. Just like the claim that the transmission is supposed to be sealed for life, I find that hard to believe. Have you replaced your FL 22 and if so how long did you run it in the...

    Hi to all! Please help me my friends! Yesterday I bought my brand new Mazda 3 Sport after 6 years of driving, caring, and really loving my 2010 Mazda 3 Sport Celestial Blue. (it was a full extra edition with Bose, 17" rims, heated seats, and everything) But this morning as I went to the...

    I recently went through a set of re 760 bstone and they were good for the money. Comfortable and precise for grip driving. Not crazy grip like r1r or Slick but OK for 130 each. I went cheaper this time, Firestone but with smaller profile. On sale 100 each and 90 mail in rebate. I have not fully...

    I'll let you guys know how they do. All I can say right now (in full sunlight) is that they turn on and don't blow any fuses. Well, and they hurt to look directly in them. :smile2: All "H" series bulbs have the filament in exactly the same location, so the pattern should be identical, except...

    All, I just did my first 3000 mile oil change myself. Used Mazda Synthetic with Moly and OEM filter. Checked the oil levels after driving and the dipstick/oil smelled faintly like gasoline. Is this normal? I saw on another forum that high compression direct injected engines tend to have oil...
