What is the maintenance schedule for the 1983 Mazda RX-7?
When it comes to your Mazda RX-7, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your RX-7 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. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your RX-7, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1983 Mazda RX-7 maintenance schedule!
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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your RX-7's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1983 Mazda RX-7 problems.
Bring your 1983 Mazda RX-7 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with 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 RX-7's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1983 Mazda RX-7? 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. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Mazda RX-7 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Mazda RX-7 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1983 Mazda RX-7'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 1983 RX-7. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1983 Mazda RX-7.
