    Anyone experience this? Specifically with a 2011 3 GT Hatchback (2.5L) Car has 105k miles Basically, if the car is cold, it starts up fine but if I drive it a short distance, usually under a mile, turn it off for like 5-10 mins when I run into the store, it will sometimes struggle to start...

    My engine has been very occasionally jumping and stuttering, it feels like hitting a bump but horizontally, no codes are being thrown, no lights are showing. I know for a fact it's not bad gas but that's all I know. It could be a vacuum leak but I doubt it, it's most likely not to do with the...

    Hello everybody To begin with, I would like to tell you that i am a complete beginner on car-related stuff and I realize that my question may be stupid for which I apologize in advance. Two weeks ago I became the owner of a Mazda 3 2.0 120km, skyactive gasoline. At the beginning it was...

    Hey guys, I own a Mazda 3 Sp23 2010, 2.5L... I’m looking to maybe install a turbo after I get my cold air put in. I was wondering if anyone had any clue if this is even a good idea or knows how installing a turbo actually works... thanks all :)

    Hi all, I'm attempting to use VRTune's Powergate 3+ to reflash my ECU. Unfortunately, when attempting to read the ECU for the first time, the Powergate spits out "An error occurred while reading data from ECU. Please try again." Any ideas? Thanks in advance, Bush

    FINALLY, I did another mod lol. This time a CS Engine Mount. I borrowed a pair of ramps from a friend and it was easy. The hardest part is the pop clips for the under tray lol. After I pulled the oem mount I applied some light pressure to it and I cannot believe how much flex is engineered...

    Hi, I tried to remove the engine cover on my 2005 Mazda 3 1.6 to check the ignition coils, but I could not. Some how It got stock on the bottom right corner. Is there a Video or tutorial to do so? Thank you!

    Hi All, Does anyone have any experience in replacing their engine/suspension mount? Amazon only has 1 listed on for our which seems odd considering it takes more then 1 mount to keep it steady. I wanted to replace all the rubber mounts since I've noticed at idle at a stop, especially with the...

    I love this car so SO much (just like everyone else) but I had been having really noticeable gear changes in my lower gears like it feels underpowered or something. Took it into the dealer and test drove 2 mother 2019 3s (both a Mexico one and Japan one) they both had the same issue! Even the...

  14. Engine / Drivetrain
    Hey there, I have a 2012 Mazda 3 skyactiv, the engine vibrates above 2000rpm and I can’t figure out why. It’s a 6speed manual. Just sitting with the parking brake up in neutral if you rev it up over 2000rpm you can feel a vibration starting. I’ve replaced all motor mounts and it’s still doing...

    2.0l mz3, the car drives fine and everything but am getting a engine light, going to assume it's running too lean judging by all the other posts about it. My question is, will it be safe to just drive it or should I just put the standard intake on

    Hey yall, a few days ago my trackion control came on and my engine light started flashing then lost a bunch of power and the engine started to shake. I replaced the spark plugs today but the problems is still there. Although it is better now the engine still shakes a bit and the engine light is...

    Wondering what the round piece that has 4 lines going into is as it is now leaking coolant after a ditch excursion. It’s located at the bottom front of a 2008 2.3l motor. Thx

    As I learned from the instruction book, the Skyactive engine must use octane number 95 or higher. E20 is much cheaper(in my country, Thailand). E20 has about 97-98 octane number and higher than gasohol 95 (E10). I wonder that E20 which has higher octane number and cheaper should be the...

    Introduction Currently, Mazda produces three engines: the 2.0 L used in the Miata and the 2.5 L normally aspirated and turbocharged types. The SkyActive-X engine will not be part of this discussion as its exact specifications have not yet been announced. Some of our Forum members might be...
