When to Change 2014 Mazda 6 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2014 Mazda 6? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 changing your 2014 6’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Mazda-recommended oil change intervals, your 6 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mazda 6. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2014 Mazda 6 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mazda 6? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Mazda 6 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda 6 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
