1995 Mazda Protege Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mazda? 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 I tow in a Mazda Protege? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Protege’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Protege is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Protege transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Mazda Protege transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
