  3. mystery foam inside intake manifold

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    My best guess is some sort of baffle for noise reduction as it is not attached to anything, just bumbling around in the void under the intake runners above the plenum. If you feel around, there are a couple more foam blocks that are attached somehow in that same space, anchored to something...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    All of my searches on headlight problems seemed to be related to condensation problems. Has anyone ever found their headlights contaminated with a white powder? I bought a 2011 Mazda 3 for my daughter at an auction so I have no idea about it's previous life. It had been involved in a collision...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I've put about 750 miles on my 2016 i Touring. Everything is great, except now that it's getting warmer outside, I'm starting to smell antifreeze when driving. I don't smell it in the engine bay even after a long drive; it's just in the passenger compartment. That tends to mean a leaking heater...

  15. Hi from inside a 2015 Mazda3 iTouring

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    So after driving a Dodge Stratus for the last 10 years, I finally was able to get a new car. So far I'm really happy with it but I'm looking forward to doing some light modding (hood struts, rear sway bar). I've never really been that interested in cars but I am now!

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
