How Often to Change 2015 Mazda 5 Oil

Need more info about 2015 Mazda 5 oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Mazda recommends changing your 2015 5’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Mazda-recommended oil change intervals, your 5 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mazda recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Mazda 5. Mazda has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2015 5. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your 5's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 5 by considering your driving preferences, and mileage.

2015 Mazda 5 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mazda 5? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 5’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 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda 5 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
