2006 Mazda 3 2.3L noise problem in low gears under acceleration
I have a 2006 Mazda 3 2.3L S Touring model Manual transmission that has a problem with noise under low gear acceleration especially when the engine is not fully warmed up.
I only have 96k miles and kept up with regular maintenance. My mechanic could not figure out what it was so he asked me to wait until it got worse! Basically if I start the car and put it into first gear and start accelerating there is an extra noise in addition to the regular engine noise. If I ease up in the gas this noise goes away. When I shift to 2nd gear and accelerate the noise is still there. And again it is related to accelerating under load. If I put car in neutral and press the gas the engine is smooth. Also the car still accelerates does not hesitate or anything. I hope this is not a major problem. Any ideas.
