Your Guide to 1999 Mazda Miata Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Mazda Miata, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Miata. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Miata maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1999 Mazda Miata!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mazda, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Miata's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1999 Mazda Miata problems.

Overview of Essential Mazda Miata Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1999 Mazda Miata for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Miata. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1999 Mazda Miata? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Miata may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 Miata battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Miata) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mazda Miata won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1999 Mazda Miata engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1999 Miata. 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 1999 Mazda Miata? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Mazda Miata can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Mazda Miata suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Mazda Miata's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Mazda Miata services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Mazda Miata engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Mazda Miata? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1999 Mazda Miata maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1999 Mazda Miata. Get answers to common Mazda Miata maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Mazda Miata alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 1999 Miata is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When does my Mazda Miata need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Mazda Miata engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Mazda? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Mazda Miata in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
