Mazda Preventative Maintenance

Mazda Preventative Maintenance

Mazda is without a doubt a great brand of vehicles, and you as a Mazda owner probably already know this. But do you know how to take care of your Mazda properly? In the following article, we will discuss what you can do in terms of preventative maintenance and ensuring only smooth rides on the road.

First things first, having the oil regularly changed is vitally important for your Mazda. However, that is not to say that the replacement of the filter is not just as important. Both of those things are crucial because particles, such as tiny bits of metal or dirt, can get inside of the engine, which in turn causes severe wear on the engine while it is working. In order to protect the engine and ensure that it serves you well now and in the future get regular oil and filter changes. Aim to change them every 5,000-10,000 miles.

Do not forget that it is wise to rotate the tires in order for them to ‘age’ evenly. You should have your Mazda’s tires rotated at least twice a year, or somewhere between 6,000 miles and 8,000 miles in order to keep the wear and tear even. If you are unsure, however, you can always consult your owner’s manual, there usually is a maintenance schedule in it.

If you are one of those people who forgets that their Mazda’s AC needs maintenance in order to work properly and without major issues, you should rethink that. In terms of avoiding any future costs for repairs on your AC, you should have the cabin air filters replaced periodically. By doing so you can protect the AC and avoid bacteria build-up and its eventual breakdown. You can buy the air filters at almost any auto parts shop and do the replacement yourself, it is usually easy. However, if you do not feel sure about doing it yourself you can always take your car to an auto repair shop. Check your owner’s manual to see when the change is due, it is usually somewhere in the range of 15,000 miles to 30,000 miles.

Last but not least, take your vehicle to a trusted auto repair shop. It is important to know that the mechanic working on your vehicle is just as invested in keeping your car running smoothly as you are.

This plant is responsible for manufacturing the Transit and the F-150 full-size van.
