Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1998 Mazda MPV

Not sure when or if your Mazda MPV’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 1998 Mazda MPV Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1998 Mazda MPV, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your MPV bounces, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1998 Mazda MPV in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Mazda MPV suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mazda MPV Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 Mazda MPV suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Mazda up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your MPV’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Mazda MPV shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1998 Mazda MPV’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1998 Mazda MPV Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mazda's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mazda MPV? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mazda intended.
  • Does my Mazda MPV power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your MPV’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Mazda's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
