When to Change 2017 Mazda 3 Engine Oil

Need more info about 2017 Mazda 3 oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 2017 3’s oil at regular 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, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Mazda if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mazda 3. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing 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 specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2017 3. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your 3's oil, replace and recycle your used 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 odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Mazda 3

  • Should I check my Mazda 3 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your 3’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Mazda oil on my own? 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. 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
