When to Change 2014 Mazda 3 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2014 Mazda 3? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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.”

Mazda recommends changing your 2014 3’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 3 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 2014 Mazda 3?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2014 Mazda 3 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Mazda has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2014 3. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your 3’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other 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.

2014 Mazda 3 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Mazda 3 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Mazda 3 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 engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda 3 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
