What Does Your Mazda MX-6 Transmission Do?

Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Mazda MX-6 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood.

1996 Mazda MX-6 Transmission Q&A

  • 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Mazda? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your MX-6’s towing capacity. 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. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Mazda, so check with your technician first. 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 over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.
