Oil Change Q&A for Your 2010 Mazda 6

  • What can low oil do to my Mazda 6 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Mazda 6 engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mazda 6 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 6 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
