They're often easy to notice. Mazda MX-6 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood.

Questions About 1989 Mazda MX-6’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mazda's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 small.

About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed.
