How Often to Get 2009 Mazda 3 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Mazda 3’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2009 3’s oil should be changed according to Mazda’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Mazda-recommended oil change intervals, your 3 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Mazda if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mazda 3. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2009 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 specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2009 Mazda 3 vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your 3’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car 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, weather and road conditions,

2009 Mazda 3 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Mazda 3 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Mazda 3 engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mazda oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda 3 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
