    Default Blown Engine. Now A NEW Engine :) (w/3 vid's)

    My car was always loud... but tonight leaving the oakville meet tonight something made a loud bang and then this...

    My car has been in for many engine problems and whenever I have a problem I have to leave it for a week... I can't be without a car for 1 week every 6 weeks...

    When I give it gas when driving it is 10 x louder. People were leaving me extra space from behind

    Don't get me wrong... I love my car

    Any ideas?

    Today idle & rev'd a bit (bigger file):

    hmmm....when i had a loose/broken butterfly valve in the intake manifold, it sounded like that, but wasn't prefixed with a BANG and wasn't as 'severe' sounding.

    is your car low on power now after the bang? could also be a dead cylinder.

    Yes power is slugish & reduced. I had a feeling it was a cylinder also... but wasn't sure if anyone else thought that. Now the bang could be something unrelated as I have had this bang 2 other times & both times it happened power was reduced and it stayed at mazda for a week... and they couldn't really tell me what happened... maybe it was related to this all along and now it just gave up all together.

    take it in as soon as you can.

    your engine sounds similar to what happened with mazda3_mike. he had a similar, if not the exact same, issue and the dealership told him the same thing and gave him back the car to drive sounding like shit. the car eventually died on him in the middle of nowhere. in the end, he got a new engine out of mazda (long story that was posted on the crashed tm3).

    Could be the whip. (from the "blackman special") ;D j/k

    Seriously now, man if this is like the third time you got that kind of problem, not the ticking but the bangs and what ever else, you should take the car to the dealership and deman a new engine, that sounds bad. I feel sorry for you man.

    If Mazda keeps trying to screw you, what you can do is contact Toronto Star. They have some person/department that deals with situations like these - where a customer is being screwed by a company or a store. In fact, I have a family friend that had problems with Mazda (not willing to divulge details), contacted the Star just to see if anything would come of it, and a day later, Mazda Canada contacted the family friend to inform him everything would be resolved. I'm sorry I don't have the contact info for this person/department, but I am sure you can find that out from thestar.com or by giving them a call. Sometimes you gotta go the extreme - mazda canada and any other big corporation does not want bad publicity. Hope it works out man.

    No CEL tho? Sounds like the misfiring I sometimes get still (once in a few months, more random than "scheduled"). Are you limited in RPMs and speed? Probably not since you passed SSG on the highway.

    No cel. Weird.

    Well I am limited to speed now. It is soo loud and sounds like crap if I go above 40. When I passed ssg I was getting on the on ramp off 3rd line. Maybe going 60km. Then when I hit 110km on the highway was when it made a bang and started gradually getting louder. I pulled off the highway and limped it home the long route.

    He must have heard something before I even noticed something was wrong... Before the meet ending I let my car warm up for 5 mins (as did everyone there) and it sounded fine...

    Yep that is at idle.

    Closest one to home that has friendly service. They always make me feel welcome.

    Man, I'm not even sure if you should be driving that car to the dealer......maybe it's worth calling roadside assistance and have them tow it to the dealer?
