1990 Mazda MX-6 Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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 a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your MX-6 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my MX-6's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Mazda MX-6’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Mazda. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can transmission fluid leak from my Mazda MX-6? Yes. Mazda MX-6 transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems. Transmission fluid leaks are often caused by worn or damaged transmission components, such as the transmission pan, cooler lines, seals, or housing. An overfilled transmission may also be behind your transmission fluid leak.

  • Can I still drive my Mazda MX-6 if it has a transmission fluid leak? Driving your MX-6 with a transmission fluid leak is highly discouraged. Transmission fluid is vital to the smooth operation of your transmission system, and a leak can put the entire system at risk. A transmission fluid leak may lead to decreased performance, overheating, and possibly even transmission failure.
