Mazda 3 transmission fluid capacity

Mazda3 Manual Transmission Fluid Change

Time for another installment of Mazda3 maintenance! This time it’s the manual transmission fluid and the differential fluid. They are one in the same. Mazda calls this a “lifetime fluid” and never calls for it to be changed out. In my humble opinion, that’s not good. Nor is it right. So here’s how you change it.

4 fresh quarts of MT-90.

4 fresh quarts of MT-90.

Without getting into an oil debate, this is my preferred lube. Redline MT-90. It is a 75w90 GL-4 gear oil. That satisfies Mazda’s requirements perfectly. I’ve used it in my Miatas for 10 years and have always been happy with it. When I saw the oil spec was the same on the 3 as on the Miata, I didn’t even question which fluid to buy.

You need something like 3.1 quarts. Four of these bottles will cover you. I happened to have a space 1/2 quart in my garage, so I got by with buying three. You will also need a drain pan, some paper towels, and a 23mm wrench/socket. And, perhaps most important, a fluid pump.

The 3 on jack stands.

You’ll need to get the car up into the air where you can get to the transmission fill and drain plugs. You’ll also need the car to be level. I’d suggest 4 of the strongest jack stands you can find. I love my ESCO stands. You can read about them in my Mega Jack Stand Review.

I place the stands on the factory jack points at the back of the pinch welds and under the front control arms. The car is extremely stable when held up by these four points. Don’t forget to give the car a good shake after you get it up on the stands. Better to find a wobbly stand when you’re beside the car rather than when you’re under it.

Transmission fill plug.

The transmission is to the driver’s side of the engine bay. It’s the big, shiny metal housing. My wrench is on the fill plug facing toward the front of the car. Always remove the fill plug before removing the drain plug. Life gets exciting when you have a completely drained transmission but no way to fill it…

Sorry about the cropping on this shot. This was the best one of the batch.

The drain plug is the same size as the fill plug, just on the bottom of the transmission. It is the only plug on the bottom of the engine that looks like this and is 23mm.

Drain out the old fluid

Make sure to leave the fill plug off. The fluid drains much faster this way. Feel free to be as thorough as you like. I let mine drain for a good 20 minutes.

I chose to reuse my crush washers. Neither were very tight from the factory and my car is still fairly new. I will change the washers out when I do the fluid again in 30,000 miles.

Torque the drain plug to 29-43 ft/lbs once you’re done draining the old stuff out.

Fill it up!

Fill it up!

It would probably be possible to fill the transmission with a long run of hose and a funnel from the top side, but I like my little fluid pump. It fits a Redline bottle perfectly and goes through a bottle pretty quick. But to each their own. As I said above, you’ll need a little more than 3 quarts. I just pump until fluid starts to come out of the fill hole.

When you’re done, torque the fill plug to 29-43 ft/lbs. And in case you missed it above, the transmission fluid is also your differential fluid. You just changed both. Congratulations!

The first-generation Mazda 3 appeared in 2003 and became one of the most popular models of the Japanese manufacturer. In November 2018, a completely new, fourth generation, debuted on the catwalks of the international auto show in Los Angeles. It received a new platform with a different suspension architecture, an innovative line of powertrains, a classic set of gearboxes, a stylish interior with a high level of equipment, and a redesigned exterior.

As before, the design is made in the corporate style of Kodo, however, its more adult variation under the motto “Less is more” is used here, which can be interpreted as “less is more”. Indeed, the car received a calmer silhouette with smoother edges. The headlights have become noticeably narrower and visually adjoin the enlarged radiator grille.

It got a rounder shape and a mesh design with many small cells. New brake lights with round sections can be seen on the stern, and on the rear bumper, there are two tailpipes of the exhaust system.
