Question about 2003 Mazda Mazda6

Tearing noise coming from engine

I drive a 2003 Mazda 6s 3.0L V 6. In the last couple of days I've noticed an intermittent sort of tearing noise not very loud coming from the front of the car. It stops when I accelerate then comes back, its there when the car is idle also. The car is driving fine.

I recently had some work done around the coolant area, replaced one of the hoses.

The heat shield has come loose a couple of times before but this time the noise sounds different to that.

Any ideas?

What you should do is, get a pair or ramps and get in under your car, you'll be amazed at what you'll find loose and busted off an auto that age.

I replaced the front wheel bearing on my 2004 mazda 6s. After a couple of days the wheel is loose again, has a wobble and is making a humming noise. Is it possible the wheel bearing was not seated...


It is very possible and it is also that the spacer between the bearings has been left out (front wheel drive) Pull the hub again to check for damage and adjust properly

Loud clacking sound on 2003 mazda 6. possible axle? happened after oil change. sounds like something is loose.


This noise can be caused by a defective outboard (wheel end) front axle constant velocity joint (known as a "CV" Joint). This would be louder on turns, more noticeable at lower speeds and sharp turns. Next it could be valve train noise, this would come from the top of the engine and this could be related to the oil change if a piece of dirt got into the oil supply to the hydraulic camshaft followers. At this point you need a professional to listen to the noise to determine the exact cause.

Noise from engine or transmission cant tell


The sound could also be from the fuel pump. This comes on a cold engine. The way to sort it is to change your driving technique. Do not accelerate too much till the temp gauge starts showing the change. for the first minute or two if you do not accelerate too much then you may not hear the sound the rest of the day. Let the engine/fuel pump warm up a little and then you drive your normal self.

'03 MPV problem


we had a very similar problem on our 2003 mazda mpv. at first we were also told coils. we changed all the coils out and the problem came back. we found out that it was a leak in the egr valve and gasket. there was also another leak found after that. when the leaks were fixed, the problem stopped. i suggest checking for leaks in your engine, this could be the problem.

Mazda 6 warning light


On my 2003 Mazda 6S the problem was a loose gas cap which caused the check engine light to come on and stay on. To turn the light off you have to disconnect the battery for a couple of minutes.
