When to Change 2010 Mazda 5 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2010 Mazda 5? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about 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 having your 2010 Mazda 5’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 5 in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 5 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, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mazda 5. 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 5?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2010 Mazda 5 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Mazda has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2010 5. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your 5’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2010 Mazda 5 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Mazda 5 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Mazda 5 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mazda 5 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle 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, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
