What's going on everybody just wanna introduce myself real quick my name's Eddie been a long time browser on this site but finally joined feeling I have enough knowledge to help people with there 3's.
Brief description - i bought a 2005 Mazda 3 hatchback sp3 over 2 year's ago from my uncle for $1000 with 96k on it BUT WITH ALOT OF ISSUES ALL MOTOR MOUNTS AND TRANS WERE DESTROYED, like 8 CELS and most serious was the electronic issues no horn Headlights, dash lights and a/c. I tore through these HERE fourms and came across some passenger junction box issues, found a cheap junk yard one totally different 3 but just tired it and almost everything worked so I bought a renewed one for my specific 3 and all that has been fine since.
Replaced all the mounts

(until u drive a car with every mount destroyed then replace them all get in the car start it up and feel that smooth quiet idle compared to the intense vibration ur used too u don't know the joy of working on ur car) finally it had 8 CELS evap, o2 sensors, running lean, converter fail, purge valve, misfires. It took me over a year too get all fix but the evap and purge turned out all my ignition coil harnesses were busted changed them and that's it.

So that's my mz3 story if anyone has any similar issues let me know thanks.
