Mazda6 Maintenance Schedule
The Mazda6 is known for being a fun car to drive. However, you need to make sure that it’s well taken care of so you can continue to travel around Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg, and Carlisle for a long time.
That’s precisely why a Mazda6 maintenance schedule is in place. We’ll tell you what type of work is needed at certain mileage intervals, and then you can contact Faulkner Mazda to schedule service for your mid-size sedan!
Maintenance Schedules 1 & 2
The Mazda6 has two maintenance schedules to follow: Schedule 1 and Schedule 2. If you drive under severe driving conditions, you’ll want to follow Schedule 2. These conditions include:
- Applying the brakes for an extended amount of time while driving
- Driving on rough, muddy, or dusty roads
- Traveling in very cold or very humid climates for long periods of time
- Extended periods of either idling or low-speed operation
If none of the above situations apply, you can simply stick to Schedule 1.
5,000 or 7,500 Miles
Schedule 2 needs to be completed every 5,000 miles, while Schedule 1 follows a 7,500-mile interval. At the 5,000-mile mark for Schedule 2, you’ll want to have the following work completed:
- Replace engine oil and filter
- Inspect engine coolant level
- Inspect function of all lights
- Inspect brake and clutch fluid level
- Inspect disc brakes
- Rotate tires
- Inspect tire inflation pressure and tire wear
- Lubricate all locks and hinges
- Inspect washer fluid level
For Schedule 1, just inspect the disc brakes after the vehicle hits 7,500 miles.
When the Mazda6 hits 15,000 miles, Schedule 2 will follow the 5,000-mile check, then add the following work:
- Inspect fuel lines and hoses
- Inspect brake lines, hoses, and connections
- Inspect steering operation and linkages
- Inspect front and rear suspension, ball joints, and wheel bearing axial play
- Inspect driveshaft dust boots
- Tighten bolts and nuts on chassis and body
Schedule 1 will match Schedule 2 almost completely; the only difference will be that you also need to replace the cabin air filter.
30,000 & 37,500 Miles
After 30,000 miles in the Mazda6, Schedule 2 will follow the 15,000-mile check. You’ll also want to replace the air filter and inspect the hoses and tubes for emissions.
After 37,500 miles for Schedule 1, you’ll instead want to inspect the exhaust system and heat shields.
75,000 & 120,000 Miles
The schedules pretty much follow the same format until you hit 75,000 miles. At this point, Schedule 1 and Schedule 2 will have you replacing the spark plugs.
If your Mazda6 continues to run well after 120,000 miles, you’ll know that you’ve done a great job at keeping up with routine maintenance. Whether you’re following Schedule 1 or Schedule 2, the only new thing that needs to be done now is replacing the engine coolant.
