    I jumped from a 2005 3 to a 2018 3 hatch 2.5 and am getting used to all the computerized changes. I've noticed that the RPMs rise slightly when I put the car into 1st at stop - as if the car is anticipating that I will rev higher and take off soon. Is this my imagination, or has Mazda...

    Im not a new manual driver, i work as a valet driver so i know that this doesn't happen to me in all other clutches that ive driven on. The problem is I cannot get the revs to stay up in between shifts causing the passengers to jerk forward when I upshift. I noticed ive correlation between...

    Hi everybody. I have a 2018 touring hatch so of course it has the 2.5L motor in it. I've noticed sometimes that when I'm pushing it hard there's a bit of rev hang and this is with sport mode off. Anybody else experience this?

    I test drove a 2018 2.5L 6MT yesterday and came away really disappointed in the throttle response when trying to rev match downshifts. I wasn’t too bothered with response when in gear, but the throttle seemingly didn’t want to respond through the neutral zone unless I really laid on it in which...

    Ive noticed more recently that my 2017 Mazda 3 GT 2.5L manual likes to rev hang. I swear when it was new it never had this bad of rev hang, like it's getting rediculous. Ive poked around on here and have not found any conclusive evidence of a solution to this problem. A tune would help some...

    When I start the engine in a cold climate, say -10'C its revving higher than normal, I heard some brands do that to heat up the engine faster, no problem. but shouldnt it stop when I start driving? it doesnt.. That makes it hard to drive at a low speed in say 2nd-3rd gear, for example when...

    Not that I care to test it, but I accidentally revved the engine pretty high when I got home after a long trip and stretched/yawned but didn;t realize it because I was yawning and couldn't hear. Got me curious (although not enough to test myself): Do the 2015 3's with an automatic and 2.0L have...

    So I have a 2014 Mazda 3 iGT with almost 50k miles on it. It has a corksport intake and corksport cat-back exhaust system on it. The weird thing that is happening is whenever I press the gas to the floor it won't go anywhere but it will rev high and then drop. Also when it revs up where it shows...

    Does anyone know how to set a rev limiter without doing a full tune? I know the orange Virus tune allows you to adjust the rev limiter, but I want to know if there is a cheaper way to do it. I'm looking to lower it to maybe 5,500-6,000 rpm.

    I bought a new '14 3 iTouring in May and it has the manual transmission. I was wondering if anybody knows how to disable the rev limiter, which limits the revs to 4000 rpm when i am not in motion. I understand this is to prevent from destroying the clutch, but i still want to be able to rev all...
  12. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Is it my car or there is a rev limiter at 4000rpm in neutral? My car is manual and I thought only automatic gearboxes have the limiter... Sorry, just noticed that posted in the wrong sub-forum, meant to post it in 2014 Discussion Section.

    Hello, I have a 2012 mazda 3 skyactiv automatic 2.0... it has 43000 miles on it and lately I have noticed that when I stop accelerating, the rpm hangs for a few seconds and then drops. What is the issue? Is it serious?

    Ok so me and @color0 was talking about the throttle plate response on rev matching. So I was thinking would it be possible to have our ecu flashed/upgrade/reprogrammed to 2013 software or something since he said on the 13 model its just smooth and sweet. Sent from AutoGuide.com Free App

    My car revs for a longer time before the transmission changes from the first to the second gear. The rev sound is also high and i feel it has affected a change in consumption. When i drive continuously at rev above 2.5 for a longer time i get the AT light on and the transmission becomes very...

    Hi All, I am having an odd issue where my 3 will not rev past 4000rpm in 4th gear in manual mode. Upon reaching 4000rpm, the rpms will dip down to around 3700-3900rpm with the accelerator pedal depressed. It will happily rev past 4000rpm in 1st, 2nd and 3rd without hesitation. Are the RPM's...

    Please Help!!... My 2010 Mazdaspeed 3 will not go over 3500 RPM and it doesnt respond until press the gas petal down 70-80%. While Idleing/in neutral it just seems like it has a rev limiter or launch control that stops it at 3500 RPM. but it also does the same thing while driving. It will go up...

    2010 Mazda 3 2.0 with the Simota Carbon Fiber SRI. Videos aren't the best because they are taken with my phone, sounds even better in person. Added a last video with more pedal mashing haha. This has a nice deep throaty groan.

    So lately I have been having a interesting issue with my car. Its a 10 2.5L with 22k on it. The car is stock. The only thing on it is a transmission mount bushing. When I pull up to a stop light and press the clutch and brake pedal, the engines revs do not drop. They stay at 2-3k for about...
