#40 of 101 engine noise
Jan 24, 2008 (8:12 pm)
Just bought a 2008 Mazda3 i touring 4 door sedan. Has anyone noticed a high pitched hum that comes from the left side engine compartment near the fan belt. It is always there but especially hear it when sitting at a stoplight or even if the accessories is on with the engine not running. Can hear it inside the car, but hear it most when standing outside. I talked to Mazda service and they said that this is common on all Mazda3's as it has to do with the electronic power steering - just wondering if anyone else has experienced this? It is kind of odd to consider it normal. Any and all input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
#41 of 101 Noise after warm up

I am a new comer to this forum, but I like it very much. I am live in BC Canada, I bought a 08 MZ3 HB one month ago. After I drive it for a while, when I stop the car I can hear the "tick tick..." sound from the engine, and also the idol is not stable sometimes. Did anybody have the similar experience? Thank you..

#48 of 101 Noise During Acceleration
Mar 14, 2008 (6:28 am)
I have a 2007 Mazda 3 S Touring with about 8800 miles on it. When I accelerate, I often hear a slight rattle coming from the front passengers side. I've taken the car to the shop and they've gone for a ride with me and told me they can't hear it. The rattle is very suttle, and only during acceleration, but it's there. I've had other people say they can hear it. Does anyone have any ideas what this might be?
