How Often to Change 2017 Mazda 6 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Mazda 6? 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. 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 2017 Mazda 6’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 6 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mazda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mazda 6. 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 2017 Mazda 6

  • Should I check my Mazda 6 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your 6’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mazda 6 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
