When to Change 2008 Mazda 5 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2008 Mazda 5? 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, "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 having your 2008 Mazda 5’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 5 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds 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 areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mazda 5. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2008 Mazda 5

  • What can low oil do to my Mazda 5 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Mazda 5 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mazda 5 oil at home? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
