How Often to Get 2007 Mazda 3 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2007 Mazda 3? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Mazda recommends changing your 2007 3’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 3 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mazda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mazda 3. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Mazda 3?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Mazda 3. Mazda has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2007 3. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your 3's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 3 by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2007 Mazda 3

  • What can low oil do to my Mazda 3 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your 3’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mazda 3 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda 3 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
