Here’s Why 1990 Mazda MX-6 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Mazda MX-6 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your MX-6 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine MX-6 maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1990 Mazda MX-6!

Mazda knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your MX-6 perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1990 Mazda MX-6 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Mazda MX-6 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1990 Mazda MX-6 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your MX-6's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1990 Mazda MX-6. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mazda MX-6 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 MX-6 stranded. Your Mazda MX-6 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1990 Mazda MX-6's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1990 MX-6. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1990 Mazda MX-6.

Maintaining your Mazda MX-6 steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).
