Mazda 3 Noise
Hello, I am wondering if anyone one else has experienced the following and/or
might have an idea as to what the cause of this issue might be.
I recently bought a Mazda 3 GS 2009 (4 speed AUTOMATIC), and about 2 weeks of driving
I started to hear noises. At first, it was a once or twice a week.
Now it's like at least once or twice (if not more) a day...
The sound I am talking about is like a "criiick" noise when I go from Neutral to DRIVE or
REVERSE...after about 1 or 1.5 seconds after I shift from "N" to "R" or "D"...
it makes that noise...mostly going into "R"...The Transmission fluid is full and
the car drives normally...no real issue there...I don't know what is causing that noise
One night the noise was really noticeable...louder than usual...
Is this normal for Mazda 3's? Has anyone else experienced this?
Also, when I turned the steering wheel (Left or Right) at low speeds,
I hear a little whining noise (almost like a cat miaowing)...Any ideas here?
Please let me know your thoughts, ideas, etc....thank you.
