    Hi folks, During my oil change this weekend I noticed something that I do not recall from the last change. After warming it up for 3 minutes (from cold), with the engine off, I opened up the oil fill cap before diving under to pull the drain plug and noticed a decent amount of visible vapor...

    I'm just trying to get a sense of whether or not my car is in the 'normal' range here. If I pull into the gas station right as the low fuel light comes on (~30-35 miles on the range), it usually takes around 10.2 gallons to fill it up. Now the manual claims a 13.2 gallon tank which gives a...

    Hey everyone, I'm in the process of helping my girlfriend save some $$$ by not going to the dealer for service on her 2015 3 2.0L M/T. I've done the transmission fluid flush once before (Redline MTL 75w80), but am ready to do it again since she's still complaining about shift quality after the...

    This tutorial applies to 2014, 2015, and 2016 Mazda 3 with automatic transmission. I am not sure if Mazda tweaked the transmission design for 2017 onward, but process should be very similar. Tools needed: - Phillips head screwdriver (to remove the splash guard under the car) - Flat head...

    Does a coolant drain and fill (unscrew drain plug, drain, screw in drain plug, fill up radiator) introduce a bunch of air to the system? If so, how do I go about getting rid of the air in the cooling system?

    Ok, ive seen a few reviews of the CS 70a RMM (softest one i could find) and im not sold. Everyone seems to mention that theres alot of vibration at idle, especially with the a/c on. I understand the point of a stiff RMM but why would anyone want that on their mazda 3, a nice comfortable dd? I...

    My 2009 Mazda 3s is coming up on 30k miles and I was just wondering what would be the best option for replacing the auto transmission fluid?

    I recently got a 2012 skyactiv hatch and wondering when people decide to fill up. Specs on my car states a 14.5 gallon tank. My previous cars owners manual would state how much gas is left when the idiot light comes on but this car says just fill it. So been using the computer and keep driving...

    After I fill up my tank it usually reads around 400 miles till empty, but one time it said 485! Does it maybe base it off your driving habits or your average mpg's that are currently used? What does your car show on your fill ups?
