Take care of your Mazda 626 and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 626. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get 626 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1983 Mazda 626!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Mazda themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 626 perform better, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1983 Mazda 626 problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Mazda 626 Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1983 Mazda 626 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 626’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1983 Mazda 626 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Mazda 626 battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Mazda 626 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1983 Mazda 626 running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1983 626. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1983 Mazda 626? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Mazda 626 suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Mazda 626 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Mazda 626's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Mazda 626 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Mazda 626 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Mazda 626? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it.
