Question about 2006 Mazda 3

1 Answer

Rough start at first start when car has sat for several hours

My 2006 mazda 3 sedan has just recently started making a weird sound upon start up. It makes a sound as if fuel has been restricted and after like 4 or 5 seconds the engine sounds normal. It drives normal also. This problem only happens at the first start up after car has been sitting for at least 3 to 4 hours minimum.

You probably purchased bad gasoline, not an uncommon problem with the gas that's going around now. Run it down to about a quarter tank and then try filling up with a higher octane rating.

What would cause the idle to jump up and down upon starting the vehicle?


Sounds like you've done everything but the injectors. Run a bottle of fuel injector cleaner in a tank full of gas every time you do an oil change after this time. Also, check the fuel pressure to see if it's where should be for the injectors. But then, if it has enough pressure to go through the dirty injectors to make it run, pressure should be good. Check it anyway.

You need to find out what the error code is - Service engine soon means an error code was generated.

With the problem you discribed, it sounds like a coil problem. If a crack has developed in the casing, the crack size changes with temperature changes. Also make sure that the wires are in good shape.

Stumbling Idle


possibly ajusting itsself. any severe weather/pressure changes in your area? and if so does your cars cpu compensate for this (thinks its at a different elevation etc then resets its idle proper after a certian time? I have heard of this but not sure if VW uses it) perhaps ask the service tech.

Have your fuel pump checked out. If the battery is fine, then it's probably the fuel pump.

2004 Mazda 3i 2.0L -- Intake Manifold


I have had the same problem at almost exaclty the same milage. 2004 Mazda 3 3 door hatchback (5 door sedan). I was told by the service manager that there is a valve in the manifold that fails and starts flapping, sounded just like a collapsed lifter. I think this should be covered under warranty. If not the mfg warranty the emissions? .. good luck.
