  1. Intermittent start problems. hot weather makes worse?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So I have been trying for a month to fix this problem I'm having and wondering if anyone has any ideas since I took it to the dealership and they couldn't fix it or even find out what was wrong. It's not under warranty it's a 2016 Mazda 3 with 83k miles I got for a steal only 10k. So the problem...
  2. Hot Rods

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Since the 2.5 is a scaled up version of the 2.0, does anyone happen to know if the Engine rods BE Diameter and SE Diameter are the same size on the 2.0 as they are on the 2.5? The stroke lengths are about 8.7mm different (91.2 vs 100.0) equating to a differential of about 54.75 ci per cylinder...
  3. Driver side vents blow hot all the time 2013 skyactiv

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv How-To Guides
    Hi- 1st post ! So driver side vents blow hot all the time regardless of fresh or recirculate...with A/C on still blows hot on drivers side, cold on passenger side. My guess is actuator or linkage. I see a piece of plastic linkage just hanging like it needs a place to connect, but am unable to...
  4. Climate control has troubles switching from cold to hot and Vice Versa..

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hello! I got a 2015 Mazda 3 sports trim with 55k miles on it. Recently I've been having troubles switching the climate control from hot to cold. It also will be stuck on warm a lot of the times even when on max AC. When I try switching it from hot TO cold, I have to move the temp knob to COLD...
  5. Hot Air Heating Up Lower Passenger Side Panel

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I've been noticing a very hot spot in my passenger side lower panel as circled in the attached diagram. This only happens when I've enabled the fan (with and without a/c). If I remove the panel cover (the same one you would otherwise remove to access your cabin filter/bm resistor) and poke my...
  6. Reverse camera fails when hot

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi all- I have a 2015 3sGT 6MT. Lately, my reverse camera seems to fail when the car is hot. For example, I'll leave my house for work in the morning and it works normally. But if I have to park outside and it's a hot day, when I shift to reverse, all I see is a black screen. But the next...
  7. 2007 Mazda 3 AT, AC cold on right, hot on left?

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Hello! So yesterday, my AC started blowing hot on the driver's side and ice cold on the passenger side. I've never even heard of this before, so I'm a little lost. According to what I've been able to find, it's either the blend door actuator or low freon; I don't think the 07 has a blend door...

  10. Console gets extremely hot when AC is running

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    My girlfriend drives a 2010 Mazda 3 (2.5/manual) and has been having issues with the passenger side lower console heating up extremely hot to the touch while the A/C is on. I attached a picture of exactly where the heat is sourced. It doesn't do it when the A/C is off or if just the blower is...

  12. Red hot shards

    2007-2009 Mazdaspeed3 Discussion
    So I recently was out testing my cars limits. (Closed track) so we did a top speed run and I hit roughly 143 before I had to start braking due to lack of road. Unfortunately when I let off the gas a bunch of red hot shards or idk what it was came flying out of the exhaust. I have no idea what it...
  13. How cold or hot should the skyactiv engine run?

    2012-2013 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Can anyone access the Mazda shop manual or other Mazda documentation to see Mazda's specifications for the opening temperature of the thermostat or the intended operating coolant temperature of the engine? What coolant temperatures are others seeing on their ScanGauges on their 2.0L Skyactiv...

  15. Climate Control Problem

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hey all. My 3 is 3 weeks old now and I've had the following intermittent problem - wondering if anyone else has seen this: the air blowing out at the feet is cool unless the temperature is set all the way to the highest setting. If put it on max, the air coming out is HOT. Anything less, the air...
  16. Your HOT M3 How do you cope with it?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Just curious what others here do when they park in the sun, especially on hot days. I have to park my MZ3 outside at work all day in a parking lot. I could park across the street under some trees for shade, but then I invariably end up with bird crap all over the car, so I choose the heat. I...
  17. Does anyone else have this problem?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    When im driving or sitting in the car the only vent that hits me is the center left one, the one on the other side of the steering wheel near the door WILL NEVER REACH ME because it hits the steering wheel. Does anyone else feel this? Do you have a solution? I'll be driving and one side of my...
  18. CAI vs. SRI for very hot environments.

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    I live in Southern AL and was wondering what induction type would be the best for the climate here. It gets HOT in the summer (upper nineties). I also heard that CAI has issues with standing water and unintentionally sucking up some fresh water. It also rains a lot where I am so that raises a...

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hey guys! Looks like a pretty nice forum here so I decided to join up. Currently in the hunt for a 10/11 Mazda3 hatch for a DD... my current one will be retired to "toy" status. :D It's a '97 Jeep Wrangler with a 3.5" lift and 32" tires. I love my Jeep, but I need a car now.
