    I bought a 2007 hatchback 2.3 back in March and it’s been amazing to me. I drove it across country, and I also use it for work, but I’m afraid my neglect is catching up to it. I’m not super knowledgeable on cars beyond changing brake pads and oil, but I’m broke right now and I’m going to have to...

    I took my Mazda3 CPO back to the dealership a week after purchasing it since the shifter vibrates while accelerating in the 3rd gear. They replaced the shifter assembly, however that obviously did not solve the issue. I took the car back to them and fought to get them to acknowledge the issue...

    I have a weird problem....When I removed the manual transmission from the engine of my 2004 Mazda 3 with the 2.3L engine, I placed the bell housing bolts in bags and labeled them. For some reason, I placed one different looking bolt in a separate bag. It was longer than the rest. Reassembly got...

    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...
