1991 Mazda RX-7 Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mazda? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Mazda tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my RX-7 transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Mazda RX-7’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Mazda. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Can Mazda RX-7 transmission fluid leak? Yes. Mazda RX-7 transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems. Transmission fluid leaks are often caused by worn or damaged transmission components, such as the transmission pan, cooler lines, seals, or housing. An overfilled transmission may also be behind your transmission fluid leak.

You might even experience transmission failure.
