What to Know About 1987 Mazda RX-7 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Mazda RX-7 and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your RX-7. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine RX-7 maintenance. Just follow your 1987 Mazda RX-7 maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mazda, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your RX-7 running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1987 Mazda RX-7 problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Mazda RX-7

Bring your 1987 Mazda RX-7 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your RX-7’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1987 Mazda RX-7 be ready for a new battery? 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! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty RX-7) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mazda RX-7 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1987 Mazda RX-7 running newer, longer. To learn how often Mazda recommends you have the oil changed in your 1987 RX-7, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1987 Mazda RX-7.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Mazda RX-7 can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled!

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Mazda RX-7? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Mazda RX-7 to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Mazda RX-7? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can Mazda dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Mazda RX-7 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
