Question about 2006 Mazda 3

1 Answer

In 5th gear of an automatic transmission at 65-70 km per hour and between 1500 and 1750 rpm the car starts to resonate or shake.But once I slow down or speed up it goes away. I have checked the transmission fluid level and quality and engine mounts they are ok. The trans. fluid was replaced about 18000 kms ago and the car has about 90000kms total. When I try to recreate the problem in neutral it doesn't shake.

Transmission gears or the bearings or the throws are worn - so things do not stay where they are supposed to & this cause the tranny to pop out of gear.

Shifting high rpm


its a 5sp manual. only manuals have 5th.
your RPM is wrong, it has 1 extra zero.

2002 Grand Am - 2.2L Manual Trans - really sluggish in 5th gear - going 100KM/hr and there is vertually no GO GO when you give it gas and need to down shift if you are going up hill. Seems to be fine


The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

4000 rpm at 70 miles per hour


You should have another gear "5th" at 70mph your tacho should read about 2500 rpm.
Make sure you don't need to depress something or push the gear stick against a spring to select 5th.
Is there a gear layout on top of the gearstick knob, do you have 5th gear on there?
The highest gear ratio is a little over 1 to 1 so at 70 mph you would expect 3500 rpm, but, it is a little over 1 to 1 so it will be closer to 2500rpm.

When I drive my Mazda 626 (97) in high way, at about 110 KM/Hour speed. Sometime the tachometer will suddenly go up and come down (e.g. go up to 4000 RPM or 5000 RPM from normal say 3000 RPM in one or two...


Does your Mazda have a standard trans (clutch), or automatic.
If it's automatic, the tranny might be slipping, and if it's a standard shift the clutch may be slipping. Does the actual driving speed (not engine rpm's) seem to stay the same when this happens? If you are still traveling at the same speed even though the engine speeds up, it's your tranny or clutch. I don't think the timing belt and tensioner have anything to do with this. countrycurt0
