1989 Mazda 323 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mazda's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for 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. Defying your 323 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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.
  • Does my 323's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Mazda 323’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
