  2. Mazda recall AK016A/E for Air Inlet Valve (might only be for 2.2 Diesel)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Recalls / TSB / SSB
    I have just received a recall letter from the Dutch Mazda Importer. Apparently, there is a problem with the Air Inlet Valve. This can jam due to a build-up of soot and not function correctly.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hello! I’m in the UK and am looking to pick up a 2016 registered Mazda 3 and am struggling with the choice between the 2.2 Diesel (148bhp) and the 2.0 Petrol (118bhp) - both with around 20k miles / 32k kilometres on the clock. Obviously the 0-60 acceleration and MPG economy are much better on...

  7. Diesel 2.2l MT shifting into second gear

    2014-2018 Diesel Engine
    I've noticed it last winter. Not sure if it is related to the colder weather or something else - but occasionally, especially when the engine is cold (sub zero temps during winter) it shifts into second gear a bit harsher than into other gears. Not nearly as bad as if you try to shift back to...

    2014-2018 Diesel Engine
    About two years ago I traded in my faithful old petrol Mazda 3 for a brand new Mazda 3 Skyactiv 2.2 diesel. After 30k miles on the clock I'm getting close to the end of my PCP and warranty. I scoured the web for information on looking after a diesel with a DPF. I checked my user manual, and...

  14. Mazda3 2.2 diesel 2014 tuning chip

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hi all, What is the general consensus on tuning chips? Are they worth the £300-400 to actually save fuel, but increase performance? Do they actually work and has anyone tested one on the 2014 Mazda 3 2.2d? They seem to suggest no trace would be found if removed so the manufacturer would never...

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    I'm a disgruntled owner of a VW diesel Sportwagen. Actually I was very happy before Deiselgate. It had great low end torque and 40mpg plus on the highway. Sadly, it was too good to be true. So I'm waiting to see what VW is going to do for us folks they cheated. I'm assuming their fix will...
