  2. Squeaking while idling and accelerating.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    It’s a very high pitched squeak while idling and driving. I narrowed the noise to a belt that’s almost under the windshield about 6” in front. The car has 100,100 km on it. Belt hasn’t been changed Or any tensioners. Wondering what I could do to fix this issue.
  3. Excessive Idling?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Well delivery day is Saturday and I wanted to check in with the masses and ask about excessive idling. Over the years I have developed an affinity for sitting in nature spots in my car for hours on end, 1-3 hours. Historically in the summer I idle the vehicle during those periods with the A/C...
  4. Auto Transmission lurches/sputters when idling

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I own a 2014 S GT and have approximately 25,000 miles on the car. After my last oil change and infotainment update (at approximately 20,000 miles), I started to notice that when I am using the Defrost or Air Conditioning, my car seems to idle rough, kind of bouncy, and feels like it is lurching...
  5. Engine short shake/vibration while idling on gear

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Has anyone noticed vibration or shake while sitting at a light? I have an automatic one and it shakes as if it was gonna die on me but it just keeps going. I mostly drive highway so I don't notice it too much
  6. Vibration when idling

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Does anyone notice their m3 2.5 vibrating quite a bit when idling l at a stop. Mine seems to vibrate my entire drivers seat especially when it seems like the a/c is kicking on and off which doesn't seem to make sense considering it's the winter here now.
  7. Idling, MPG and Engine Wear

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi everyone. I was just having a discussion on my Mazda 3 s Touring MPG with a co-worker, and mentioned that the overall MPG on the cars computer is skewed as I spend so much time idling during after school pickups. I'd estimate a good hour a day. My co-worker then warned me that idling is very...
  8. Engine Idling Tick After Oil Change

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I just changed my oil at just shy of 3,000miles. I used Castrol Edge 0W-20 fully synthetic with the Mazda OEM Filter (P/N PE01-14-302A). Now when the engine is at idle there is a slight tick coming out of the upper engine. The tick is only there at RPMs below 2,000, and is not a loud knocking...
  9. Rough idling

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hi guys, I picked up my MZ3SGT about 1.5 weeks ago. I've notice that the engine kinda idles rough while im at a stop light. Seems like the engine shakes and vibrates occasionally. I can feel it in the steering wheel and pedals. Is it normal as there still needs to be a break in period? I...
