Overview of Essential Mazda RX-7 Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1989 Mazda RX-7 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1989 Mazda RX-7? In general, car batteries only last three to 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Mazda RX-7 battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 help your 1989 Mazda RX-7's engine run smoother. To learn how often Mazda recommends you have the oil changed in your 1989 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1989 Mazda RX-7.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Mazda RX-7 can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Mazda RX-7 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Mazda RX-7's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Mazda RX-7 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Mazda RX-7 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Mazda RX-7 radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it.
