1988 Mazda 323 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mazda's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Mazda? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 323’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 323 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my 323 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1988 323’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Mazda, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
