  1. Warming up outside, and a new coolant smell inside

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I've put about 750 miles on my 2016 i Touring. Everything is great, except now that it's getting warmer outside, I'm starting to smell antifreeze when driving. I don't smell it in the engine bay even after a long drive; it's just in the passenger compartment. That tends to mean a leaking heater...
  2. warming the car up

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Ok so I bought my car this past december and we had an unusually bad winter this year. I found myself starting my car to let it warm up enough to even scrape the windows. That being said I have never owned a smart key vehicle before but on my old explorer I would just start it with one key and...

    Hey everyone, I'm located on the east coast here, and it's starting to get cold. I do have the advanced key and found out that I can't lock the car when I warm it up...I live in a highly populated city and for me to warm this car up unlocked is like "donating it" to who ever walks by. I have...
  4. brief grinding noise when warming up?

    Alrighty, here's my situation: It's cold ouside and I turn on my MZ3. As the car warms up, the revs drop from about 2k to 1.5k, and i hear this short, gear-grinding like noise from the front of the car (hard to pinpoint exactly where). I bought my car over the summer and I only started noticing...
  5. Locking up while the car is warming up

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Have any of the MZ3 owners with keyless entry been able to leave your doors locked with the car on, while you are outside the car? I have been trying to do this so I can leave the car warming up outside while going back into my house to do a couple things before I leave in the morning. Would...
  6. Locking my MS3 while it's warming up

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    Typically in the winter I go outside about 10 minutes before I plan on leaving for work and start my car, then go back in the house. I plan on doing the same for the MS3. Problem is, I haven't figured out how to leave the doors locked while it's warming up. I have the tech package so I have...
