I have a 2012 Mazda 3 i touring with about 13k on it. Anyone ever hear a clank/clinking metal noise in the front tranny/engine area. It happens on the first drive of the day when the car is cool and you take off or go over a bump. Sounds like a motor/tranny mount item. It goes away by the time I get to work which is weird. All I can think of is rubber mount expanding once its warm then noise goes away. Its pretty loud when it does happen.. A co-worker and myself recreated the noise by just holding the break and getting the engine to bounce/move around. It doesn't affect anything, but the noises in this car are starting to add up and feels like it has 150k on it.

Probably the rear motor mount. Theyre made by ford and suck ass. So you can live with it or upgrade haha. A new oem one will still suck

they are made by ford Even on the 2012 mazda skyactiv models?
I'm not sure about skyactivs. Wouldn't surprise me. Search this forum a little with the search button. I think someone had this issue before but I can't remember.

I can't find any ford branded stuff on my 3. This car is made in Japan and all parts are manufactured in japan. Ford doesn't have a japanese part producer.

Is English your first language?

When is the last time you had your eyes checked?
