Your Guide to 1990 Mazda RX-7 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Mazda RX-7 to last as long as possible. 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. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get RX-7 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1990 Mazda RX-7!

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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. 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 1990 Mazda RX-7 problems.

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1990 Mazda RX-7 and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. 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 1990 Mazda RX-7? Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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. 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1990 Mazda RX-7 engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1990 RX-7. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1990 Mazda RX-7? We can help with that, too!
