What Does Your Mazda Tribute Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Tribute’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Mazda Tribute transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Mazda Tribute transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your Tribute isn’t working at all.

2001 Mazda Tribute Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Mazda's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Mazda Tribute? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Tribute’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Tribute transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Mazda Tribute transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Mazda, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
