Your vehicle most likely didn't come with any greaseale joints from the factory. However given the age, there could have been parts replaced that now have fittings. So, without looking at the vehicle it'd be impossible to tell which joints are greasable. But, the parts that could have a zerk fittings on your van include the outer tie rod ends, and lower ball joints. So just take a look and grease where appropriate.

Does a mazda 2006 have grease zerks

Check your vehicle's owner's manual service guide; contact the service or parts dept at a local Mazda dealership; visually (look) at the steering linkages, or call your local auto parts store...I know that some models have sealed units with no lube points and others that have lube points...the consideration is model and are the steering components stock or aftermarket?

Unless the outer tie rods or lower ball joints have been replaced than there will not be any grease zerks. If the outer tie rods have been replaces the zerks will be on top. If the ball joints have been replaced the zerk will be on the side or the bottom.

What all is involved in a regular vehicle Service?

Basically you change the oil and filter and possibly the air filter and fuel filter if they haven't been replaced recently. Most ball joints and tie-rod ends and such are sealed on newer vehicles but if they have grease zerks then they will need filled with grease. Also the u-joints may have grease zerks to lubricate.

Your luckey to have grease zerks on your tierod ends most newer cars don't have any at all. If there any more they would be on the upper and lower ball joints, and maybe the a-frame bushings, but don't be surprised if you don't find any.
