Here’s Why 1998 Mazda MPV Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Mazda MPV and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your MPV. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your MPV, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1998 Mazda MPV maintenance schedule!

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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your MPV's life, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1998 Mazda MPV problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Mazda MPV Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1998 Mazda MPV to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your MPV’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1998 Mazda MPV. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your MPV may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mazda MPV battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your MPV stranded. Your Mazda MPV won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1998 Mazda MPV running newer, longer. See Mazda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1998 MPV in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 1998 Mazda MPV? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Mazda MPV suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Mazda MPV suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Mazda MPV's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Mazda MPV maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Mazda MPV’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Mazda MPV? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1998 Mazda MPV maintenance and repairs.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

1998 Mazda MPV Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 1998 Mazda MPV. Get answers to common Mazda MPV maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Mazda MPV? You know your Mazda MPV better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Mazda MPV? 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 MPV engines.
  • Can Mazda dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Mazda MPV to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
