    Hi guys, is it just me or are some of you also not feeling very comfortable by not seeying engine temps? The only indicator I see is when starting it illuminates blue and disappears when engine is on temp. I looked up coolant temp through Torque app and it's 98 c at idle! Is that even normal? I...

    Does anyone else's temp Guage display temps that are much higher than the actual outside temp? For example, it was high 70F's most of last week, and every time my gauge said it was ~93F. Every other car I've had has been more accurate than this.

    While installing some lights on my car looking for power I seem to have shorted out some lights. The Ash-tray/ Coin holder, Passenger airbag indicator, cigarette lighter port, temperature knobs, and possibly the blue backlighting in the gauge cluster has all gone out, and I'm hopping its simply...

    Here are the rough order of steps I used to add a Prosport oil temperature gauge to my 2014 Mazda 3 Skyactive 2.0 liter, YMMV: 1. Disconnect and remove battery 2. Safely raise and support front of car 3. Remove the aft under engine splash guard 4. Put a drain pan under the oil filter and remove...

    My outdoor temperature display consistently shows about 5 degrees higher than the actual outdoor air temp. My previous cars have been very accurate. Even with the car sitting n shade and even after driving it for awhile, the temperature is still over stated. Has anyone else noticed this...

    Hey guys, I have an issue with my digital temperature gauge, the one next to the clock. I noticed today it's stuck at 94 degrees but I know it's supposed to be way over that, maybe like around 110 degrees especially being parked out in the sun. Has this happened to anyone on here? How can I...

    Hey Guys, Just sharing a video I made for those that really are interested in knowing their 3's engine temp but don't want to go through the trouble of modding and adding gauges. I'll link the video below. I use a OBDII scanner ELM327 which is only $20 off Amazon, I connect it to my iPod...

    Hi everyone. Hs anyone had any issues with the outside temperature reading in the Mazda 3 ? My temp reading was about 7-8 degrees off, sometimes as much as 10. Does it take some time driving for the temp gauge to accurately read ? I had a Mazda CX-5 previously, didn't have an issue. I washed the...

    I live in Minnesota so it is a little cold out right now. have a 2013 Mazda3 Touring with 8k miles on it. since last week the car heats up where the blue temp light goes off and there is decent heat. then after a few more minutes the blue temp light comes back on and the heat will be cool-warm...

    I was wondering what everyone else has for gauges detected...I have a 2013 MZ3 sky hatch and uses Can 11-bit protocol that detects 64 gauges (sadly no fuel pressure!). Also, my temperature sensor on the UG itself seems to be way off...it is reading ambient temp of 125F with the alarm going off...

    Hi, new to the forum. Just got my Mazda 3 a few weeks ago and loving it. It is a 2011 I sport. Anyway, I bought a 2 screen mid off eBay to upgrade from the 1 screen I had. I installed it into the car and disconnected the battery to reset. The screen works however it is only displaying in...

    Hey guys so i just picked up a corksport exhaust and i was considering getting the chrome tips and maybe some of the piping that you can see powder coated or high temp paint or whatever will work. Reason behind this idea is because i have no chrome left on my car. I have a white 3 with black...

    Hi guys, I've been wondering how much Skyactic engines are negatively affected by higher environmental heat. In So.CA, the temperature outside can reach 100F. Because Skyactiv runs at higher compression, I wonder how much the heat can affect the performance of the engine. Does MAF sensor do...
