1996 Mazda Protege Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Mazda's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Mazda Protege? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Protege towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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.
  • Does my Protege's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Mazda Protege’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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
