Question about 2005 Mazda 3
A Connecting rod is a major component inside the engine. The rod is connected to a crankshaft on one end and a pistion on the other. These components move at a very fast rate while the engine is running, and when they fail, it is only a matter of time before they "let loose" and severe engine damage occurs,hopefully not leaving someone stranded far from home. Anyway, the best option, if you feel the rest of the vehicle is mecahnically sound and you plan on keeping it for a while, would be to replace the engine with a rebuild. Jasper Engine company may have an engine ready for install, and they have a very good reputation. I have used them myself. So, I guess the question is; Does one repair a vehicle with this condition or is it better to purchase another vehicle? Engine replacement is far better than a vehicle payment and will pay off in the long run, but this would be totally up to you and the condition of the rest of the car.
