What’s the Importance of Your 1990 Miata’s Transmission?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Mazda Miata 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 Miata transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Miata at all.

1990 Mazda Miata Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mazda? 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 Miata? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your Miata towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Miata's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Mazda Miata transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed.
