This is the only was I search anymore since I could never find stuff through the forum search. This is also good when you want to search for an acronym or something else that is less than 4 characters.
An old post but helpful tip for me. I tried it and it works.

The link is no longer working except for YouTube.

Hello world

Long time lurker, now officially a member! I've got a 2016 Mazda 6 iTouring, currently rocking snow tires with steels and 'gorgeous' hubcaps (live in Boston).

Ah, that's how...
Bought a 2006 Mazda 6 with a 6; really like this car as I bought it to replace a Lincoln LS V8 LSE.
I'm usually not a front-drive fan, but this car doesn't seem to have that high amount of "push" understeer that most FWD's get when driving a little spirited. I have some ideas for a few mods, but most are already here so I'll be "following the leader" most of the time.
I've also seen some great tech posts, a few of which have helped me find a new issue that has led to a CEL and rough running (bad coil #4 ).
For the most part, everyone here seems cool. Good to be here.

Those first 10 posts happen quicker than you may think, one really quick way is to watch the Newbie section and post a quick "welcome" when new people join

there are ALOT of great people on here so if you have a question that you cant answer after a search just ask, even if you have to resurrect an ancient thread lol

Hi, not a 6 owner, just wanted to share a DIY I wrote for installing an aftermarket oil catch can on my 2018 CX-9. These forum rules are way too restrictive, and I have no reason to clutter this sub with useless posts.

I'll just say that if any 2018 6 owners with the 2.5T are looking for a DIY, hop on Google and do a search for "mazda cx-9 oil catch can installation". My DIY is the first one that pops up. Hope that helps.

Additionally, I'd appreciate it if someone could post a reference to this post in this thread:

Mazda 6 3rd Generation (2013-Present) > Engine / Drivetrain > 2.5L Turbo I-4 > Oil Catch Can for 2.5t

Can't link directly to it due to post count. Oh well.
