Why is Your 2005 Miata’s Transmission So Important?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount 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 or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Mazda Miata transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Miata isn’t working at all.

2005 Mazda Miata Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mazda? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Mazda tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Miata’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Miata is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Miata's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Mazda Miata’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.
