    FAQ / How To Articles
    I recently noticed when changing gears on my Mazdaspeed 3 it is ok but less smooth/seemless than it was when I bought it. Also can be sometimes difficult to find reverse. Anyone else experience this or know how to fix? Thanks.

    On my Acura I ran GM syncromesh FM. Very smooth shifting. Looking for similar shift feel on the m3. Not going to track the car, just spirited DD. I don't abuse my syncros, double clutch, and live in a temperate climate. What MT oil does everyone recommend on the m3 for smooth shifting...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    anybody having this problem? It seems to be get better once the car warms up, but still not as smooth as other shift combinations. Sometimes I feel a bit of gear/synchro meshing going into 3rd. But other times it's perfectly fine, etc. I have 1100 miles. Maybe I'm not shifting right?:wacko:
