One thing you may take for granted in your Mazda are all of the different fluids that are needed to make things run smoothly under the hood. We know that you most always get your oil changed at the regularly scheduled interval you're supposed to, but there are plenty of others that might not get the attention they deserve.

And we have name-brand fluids that are designed for your specific vehicle here at our Mazda parts center located in Bergen County NJ just minutes from the Rockland County NY border. Here's a list of the most well-known and vital fluids:

1. Radiator Fluid: Whether you use coolant or antifreeze, the fluid that goes into your Mazda's radiator is designed to prevent your engine from overheating. That occurs when it starts to run low, so you'll simply need to check if it's required (i.e. if you can't see it near the top when you open the radiator cap) and then refill it if so.

2. Transmission Fluid: If you want the transmission in your Mazda car or SUV to run smoothly as you change gears or your automatic transmission does it for you, then you'll need to ensure that the fluid is up to par. Whether it's more needing to be added or the fluid being gritty, changing your transmission fluid will prevent costly repairs down the line.

3. Power Steering Fluid: If you feel an issue with your car as you try to turn the wheel, then you might need to refill or change your Mazda's power steering fluid. You can notice a leak under the hood if you see fluid in the reservoir or around it and check the fluid level with a dipstick.


4. Brake Fluid: If you feel like your Mazda's brakes are underperforming in slowing down and/or stopping the vehicle, the fluid might be the cause. If the brake fluid level isn't within 0.5" of the cap, you'll need more and it will need replacing if it appears to be dark in color.

5. Windshield Wiper Fluid: This fluid is what squirts out when you wash debris off of your windshield. It's pretty common for you to run low on windshield wiper fluid in your Mazda especially during North New Jersey winters when sand & salt bounce up and stick to block your view.

6. Oil: Last but not least is your car's oil. This helps the engine run smoothly and should typically be changed every 5,000-7,500 miles (consult your Mazda's owner's manual or one of our service consultants as to the exact mileage for your specific vehicle).

You can opt to buy any of these fluids yourself to change them or you can have our Mazda service team add or replace the fluid you need!
