    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I took my Mazda3 CPO back to the dealership a week after purchasing it since the shifter vibrates while accelerating in the 3rd gear.

    Hi guys, I got a manual 2.5 M3 GT. Usually when I shift through the gears, the shifter goes into the gear slot (from neutral) with 1 smooth notch and that's it, like it should in an ideal world. However, sometimes I feel like there is a 2nd notch as the gear leaver travels from neutral into...

    I just did an ATF drain and fill on my 2016 Mazda 3 with the 2.0L + automatic. After letting it drain, I put back in roughly 3.5 quarts. After a 20 minute drive and the fluid at operating temp, I quickly checked the dipstick and it seems to be about 1/8" over the "hot" fill line. Will I be...

    Hi, My 2005 Mazda 3 won't go into drive until the engine warms up.
