When you decided which Mazda model was going to suit your lifestyle, the type of transmission may have been a deciding factor. The automatic transmission is a common choice among drivers due to the ease of use and the fuel economy. When you consider the fact that learning to drive an automatic over a manual is easier, it is no wonder that an automatic is a popular choice for Mazda CX-7 drivers. The automatic transmission in your Mazda consists of more than the gearshift lever that you use to go from PARK to D. It is a range of mechanical parts that move your vehicle down the road.
The automatic transmission consists of parts like solenoids, fluids, gaskets, a housing, a pump, lines and in some cases, pulleys. It also consists of that lever that you use when you change gears on your column or console. Most parts that make up the automatic transmission system will never need repair or replacement, but the fluid should be maintained and changed on a consistent basis to keep the transmission shifting smoothly. A transmission that is not properly maintained will slip or hang up between gears.
If you need to replace any part of your automatic transmission system on your Mazda, then you will want to use OEM Mazda parts from RealMazdaParts.com. These parts are exact fit replacement parts that will deliver the proper performance to your transmission. A gasket that does not fit will can cause transmission fluid to leak, so use an exact fitting gasket to protect your transmission.
