2008 Mazda 6 Transmission Service

Why is Your 2008 6’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Mazda 6 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Mazda 6 transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your 6’s not even driveable.

2008 Mazda 6 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.
  • How much can I tow in a Mazda 6? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my 6 transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Mazda 6’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Mazda's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
