1996 Mazda MPV Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Mazda's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Mazda tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your MPV’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my MPV's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Mazda MPV’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
