Many Mazda 3's have this problem. The first solution is the engine mount on the passenger's side has a rubber-like gasket which may be cracked or defective. Take a look with a flashlight and see if yours is in good shape.

If it is in good shape then it can be something within the dash that is vibrating when your engine speeed increases. First remove all times from any consoles or compartments you have from the front of the car. Drive around and see if that eliminates the problem.

If not, check if the air vents are tight. Hold them from their outer frame and try to wiggle them around. If they are loose, you will need to seal them. If that is fine, then you will need to remove the dash cover and put the car of a lift to replicate the sound and try to notice which item or component is vibrating. You may need to hold different components with a pair of insulated pliers as you do this.

Getting a ticking noise with light acceleration. With increased speed, the ticking gets faster also. Sounds like right fron, but can't be sure. it only happens when it is in gear and moving.


this problem seems to be like some thing from the wheels touching the statinary parts. because of this when you accelarate the rate increases. please take to the mechanic they wil manage to find it.

the lifters are naking noise because they are worn out or the engine oil is not reaching them due to the oil pump,but due to your cars year they might be just worn out there is only one way to fix a problem like this is to get then replaced there is no quick fix,and also they will just get louder and louder like tick tick tick and it will sound quicker.
