Can Any Mechanic Work On Mazdas

What are Common Mazda Problems?

From our professional experiences, the most common Mazda issues that will need a Car Repair service are:

Light Failure

Mazda vehicles and their daytime running lights (DRL) may fail as a result of corrosion appearing on the light’s gasket. The way Mazdas are designed means that a simple repair is not possible but replacing the whole DRL is needed. When the DRL begins failing the lights start to flicker then ultimately fail. The sealing gasket attached to the light’s wiring connectors will begin to create and release sulphur resulting in the circuit corroding. Replacing the DRL is an expensive service but it needs to occur as the DRL needs to function correctly for legal reasons.

Airbag Problems

Some Mazda models might have airbag problems as the inflators become unstable as time passes. When this occurs they can rupture or explode if the airbag is deployed. Mechanics will need to ensure that the whole airbag system is operating correctly and ensure that parts are inspected and repaired where possible. 

Valve Stem Corrosion and TPMS Issues

The Tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is installed to monitor the air pressure inside of the car’s tyres and alert the driver when there is too much or too little pressure. This system can be integrated with the valve stern and this can lead to potential issues. If the valve stem cap corrodes then the TPMS will be defective and will not read the tyre pressure accurately. If these systems fail to work it is important to repair or replace them to ensure the tyres are working at the correct tyre pressure. 

Clutch Failure

The clutch failing is a common Mazda issue often from a defective release lever, pins and bearings. When these parts experience any sort of defect or problems then they can wear at the clutch discs, flywheels and pressure plates. Clutch failure should be avoided which is why mechanics will look over the Mazda’s clutch during a vehicle inspection

Brake Booster Failure

The brake system in some Mazda models may experience issues that need for them to be repaired. From the brakes losing power, being more difficult to press or hissing noises coming from the brakes, these issues will need to be fixed by a Mazda mechanic. 

What is Included in a Mazda Service?

When undergoing a Mazda Car Service the most common tasks performed by the Mazda mechanic are:

Engine Oil Nad Oil Filter Replacement

During the service, the mechanic will replace the existing Mazda engine oil with fresh oil. The oil change is to ensure that there is enough oil running in the system and that old and possibly contaminated oil is not running throughout the engine. The engine oil filter will also be replaced as the chance that it is blocked or dirty increases as time goes on.


A wide range of different inspections occurs during the Mazda car service, including:

  • Electrical System – electric windows, lights, wipers and all other electrical components of the car are looked at.
  • Battery – the car battery and surrounding connections are inspected to determine if a new battery is needed.
  • Engine Drive Belt – these belts are looked at regularly to see if they need adjusting to prevent wear and other systems of the car from being affected through them not performing well. 
  • Exhaust System – leaks and parts corroding are looked at from within the exhaust inspection, ensuring the car can properly divert heat and gases from the car.
  • Fuel Lines and Hoses – these are responsible for carrying and transporting fuel within the car so cracks, leaks, holes and loose connections are looked for. 
  • Brake Fluid – the brake fluid is important for the brakes to correctly function, which is why leaks are needed to be spotted early to prevent major brake issues. 
  • Brake System – other parts of the braking system, including the brake lines, connections, hoses, unit and parking brakes are inspected to guarantee the brakes function perfectly. 
  • Disc Brakes – the disc brakes, along with the callipers and pad linings, will be looked over for any wear and tear issues and see if they need repairs.
  • Tyres – the tyre’s condition and pressure are checked to determine if new ones are needed or pressure adjustments are required. 
  • Windscreen Washers – the windscreen washers are inspected and repaired or topped up when needed. 

Tyre Rotation 

A tyre rotation, wheel balancing and wheel aligning will be carried out to look at the condition of each tyre. Any tyre that is unbalanced, not aligned properly and is overall not in perfect condition will be fixed. This is to prevent major wear and tear on the tyres and to guarantee that the drive is safer and more reliable.
