  3. Worst nightmare, one of the valve cover holes that hold the coil pack cracked...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    I was changing my spark plugs and on the 4th plug (the far left one) when I was loosening the coil pack bolt (the things where the two engine cover clips are attached to) to change the 4th plug the bottom part cracked. Now I need a whole new valve cover I guess... where should I buy it from? I...

    Hey guys, I just have a question about my 2015 mazda 3 hatchback. I noticed that sometimes, however very rarely, my car wont go into first if i hold the clutch down too long.

  5. 2013 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Battery Won't Hold Charge

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion

  8. MT on hold for GT trim? or more?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I wonder if the MT is on hold not for the gt but for the speed equivalent. Loaded mz3 in MT didn't sell lots, so...I wonder if Mazda is tweaking the package... Loaded GT in MT in the same price margin with the speed successor kinda conflict eachother. And, it wouldn't make sense to have ms3...

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Appearance & Interior
    So I took the old Shift knob from My Evo IX and Put it on my speed 3. It's an ARC Titaniuum ball shift knob, the problem is there is about a 1.5 inch gap between the bottom of the ball and the shift boot, does anyone have any ideas how i could get the boot to stay up by the shift knob?
