Question about Mazda MAZDA3
Hi from the uk you should have car serviced or diy the service oil/filter spark plugs etc however !from the symptoms you have described re jerks when setting off in 1st then i would suspect that your problem is more likely an engine mounting has collapsed/parted from its mounting to chassis ? these are what are called metalastic rubber mounts and do come apart with age thus allowing engine to tilt back and forth as you take up drive and cause **** that you experience ? may i suggest you ask local tyre/exhaust depot or garage to check mountings for you not just visibly but physically not normally charged for here in uk but if you wish to diy mounting? suggest you read/borrowed or purchase a manual you can change these mounts diy not too difficult and save$$$s on garage fee ? the mount that is prone to failure is the one nearest radiator at front of car and positioned at where engine connects to g/box if you gently raise engine at this point with block of wood and jack the mounting will lift off if broken hope this helps please come back with update or if you req more help / info ?
