    Hi, I have a 2005 Mazda 3 S 2.3. I bought it around 2-3 months ago with 159k miles on it. I love the car and improving everything piece by piece. Right now I have a idle issue. When warm sometimes it will idle down below 750 with shaking. Things I done: - Clean throttle body front and back -...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I have 2015 sport and 9 mi trip to work. I notice that my 3 doesn't warm up completely during this 9mi/25min trip. It is like 20F outside. It goes up to 150-155F.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi I am trying to understand the logic with the boot cycle of the MZD Connect. A full cold boot takes between 28-32 seconds on my CX3 dependant on disclaimer time. If I then shut down and start the MZD with ACC (not starting car) it will boot very fast, this seems to last for about 15-20...

    So this is what I've begun to notice recently.
