#2682 of 2858 Noise from full gas tank
May 22, 2011 (12:44 pm)
We own a 09 6i GT and use it mostly to run to the station... NYC metro area. I have started to notice that every time after I fill up the tank, and I park or turn the car to a stop, I can hear the sound of the gas plashing in the tank behind me... a bit odd. Anyone with the same problem?
#2683 of 2858 Turning off car with bad battery
Jul 16, 2011 (11:18 am)
I have an '09 6i GT with the keyless start. I tried to start the car this morning, but the battery was almost dead - enough juice to barely light the dashboard but nothing else. I couldn't even use the start button to turn the power off, it was inoperable (normal cycle with the button is off-acc-on-off). Luckily, I was able to jump start the car and go get new battery. But if couldn't do that immediately, how do you turn off the electrical power? Any suggestions other than disconnecting the battery?
#2684 of 2858 Won't start, fires one time
Aug 16, 2011 (6:20 am)
Hope someone has some ideas for me to try. I have a 2005 Mazda 6i. 4 cyl, automatic. I've never had a issue before this one. My daughter drove the car the other day for about a mile. She said it started shaking bad and then died. When I try to start the car it turns over and fires one time but won't start. Tested all four of the plugs and they all fire just the one time, at the same time. I tried changing the crank shaft sensor, cam shaft sensor and the ignition coil. Same result every time. Tried disconnecting the battery to clear up any possible security or computer issues. Could it be something with the ignition or key or security system? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Could be the engine ECU needs to be reflashed or replaced. Not a cheap fix, unfortunately.

I was told by a Mazda mechanic that it probably jumped time. What does reflash the ECU mean?
#2687 of 2858 2009 mazda6 loud whinning noise when accelerating on 1st gear
Oct 19, 2011 (11:42 am)
09 mazda6 V6 I just bought from dealer a few weeks ago,
loud whinning noise when accelerating on 1st gear, from 2nd gear forward it sounds fairly normal.
This is most noticable/louder if I switch the gear manually (from automatic) and accelerate to higher rev than automatic transmission would
Is this a problem with worn transmission gear or something? is it costly to repair?
it runs/shifts normal otherwise, but the whinning noise is annoying. anyone else have the problem?

I have the 2010 Mazda 6 touring plus for about 17 months. I have 15k miles on the car and so far the car has been great. The only complaint I have is that the bluetooth on the receiver's end (people have complained to me) is raspy at times. I have 'not' brought the car to the dealer for the bluetooth, but will when I have the time.

I have the same problem. I brought the car in and the technicians said it is performing to spec. They set up the bluetooth with their own phones, and said the sound on the receiving end was fine. I did try a friend's cell phone, and it did sound better than mine, but not perfect.
This being said, there is a "fix" which the dealer offered to perform. It involves moving the microphone from its current location to the top of the A pillar. It involves a lot of rerouting of wires, taking apart the dash and headliner, etc. Because of all the parts that need to be taken apart and put back together, I am trying to avoid this.
I am due for a new cell phone soon and am hoping that the reception is better with the new phone.

I haven't had any issue with the Bluetooth on mine, 15 months and 18K miles. It was slightly weaker with my old phone (a Sony Ericsson), but improved with my new LG...

I had an LG phone that didn't work all that great. I had to YELL to have the bluetooth/phone and the receiving person recognize what i was saying. I replaced it a few months ago with a Nokia and now I can talk at a normal level and folks on the other end can hear me fine. ??? I hate to think how bad your old Sony was...
