1985 Mazda RX-7 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mazda's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Mazda RX-7? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your RX-7 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system.

About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed.
