Mazda 2: Owner Maintenance Precautions

Routine Service

We highly recommend that these items be inspected daily, or at least every week.

Improper or incomplete service may result in problems. This section gives instructions only for items that are easy to perform.

As explained in the Introduction (page 6-2 ), several procedures can be done only by a qualifi ed service technician with special tools.

Improper do-it yourself maintenance during the warranty period may affect warranty coverage. For details, read the separate Mazda Warranty statement provided with the vehicle. If you are unsure about any servicing or maintenance procedure, have it done by an expert repairer, we recommend an Authorised Mazda Repairer.

There are strict environmental laws regarding the disposal of waste oil and fl uids. Please dispose of your waste properly and with due regard to the environment.

We recommend that you entrust the oil and fl uid changes of your vehicle to an Authorised Mazda Repairer.

WARNING

Do not perform maintenance work if you lack suffi cient knowledge and experience or the proper tools and equipment to do the work. Have maintenance work done by a qualifi ed technician: Performing maintenance work on a vehicle is dangerous if not done properly. You can be seriously injured while performing some maintenance procedures.

If you must run the engine while working under the bonnet, make certain that you remove all jewellery (especially rings, bracelets, watches, and necklaces) and all neckties, scarves, and similar loose clothing before getting near the engine or cooling fan which may turn on unexpectedly: Working under the bonnet with the engine running is dangerous. It becomes even more dangerous when you wear jewellery or loose clothing.

Either can become entangled in moving parts and result in injury.

Switch the ignition to
off and make sure the fan is not running before attempting to work near the cooling fan: Working near the cooling fan when it is running is dangerous. The fan could continue running indefi nitely even if the engine has stopped and the engine compartment temperature is high. You could be hit by the fan and seriously injured.

Do not leave items in the engine compartment: After you have fi nished checking or doing servicing in the engine compartment, do not forget and leave items such as tools or rags in the engine compartment.

Tools or other items left in the engine compartment could cause engine damage or a fi re leading to an unexpected accident.
